1990 Chevy Suburban V2500 4x4

Overview
Meet Hank. He's an offroading / rock crawling / mountain truck. 3/4 ton. Lifted. Manual transmission. No bells and whistles. Will go practically anywhere. Loves to tow and haul firewood. Drivetrain maintenance kept up. Transmission 2nd gear synchronizer is weak.

Initially purchased because it's a rare 3/4 ton suburban with a manual transmission, 90-92 that has electronic fuel injection (TBI) and solid front axle. 95% of my 35k miles on the truck have been towing - firewood, sailboats to Seattle and back - and trash to the transfer station. Towed a car back from Seattle a few months ago.

Suspension, Axles and Tires
- 4" Lift Kit - Front springs plus blocks on rear
- 35" Tires - Actually 34.5" metric equivalent, so could have quiet all terrain tires. 1/2 tread left on Cooper Discoverer 65k tires. Full size spare
- All upper/lower axle ball joints on front axle recently replaced
- All steering joints recently replaced
- 1 ton, 14 bolt full float rear axle
- 4.10 / 4.11 gear ratio front/back

Engine
- 350 Throttle Body Injection (TBI)
- Throttle body spacer
- MSD Ignition Coil + spark plug wires
- Stainless Steel long tube exhaust headers
- True dual exhaust
- Preventative maintenance replacement of many parts when first purchased around 8 years/30k miles ago - water pump, radiator, thermostat, serpentine belt + idlers, spark plugs+cap+wires, fuel pump

Manual Transmission
- Muncie SM465 - Granny + 3 gears - No overdrive
- 2nd gear synchro weak. Double clutching necessary when downshifting when hot

Quirks
- Rear door latch broken. Been keeping shut with a stick. Needs latch replacement
- Drivers door window finicky...doesn't like to stay in track. Have to hold in place while cranking up
- No air conditioning - came that way from factory
- Body is rusted out. Great for offroading and mountain exploring. If want something fancy, this ain't the truck for you.
- Windshield has some good cracks
- Fuel gauge is off - 3/8 tank is empty

What would be needed for EMP-proof SHTF/Prepper truck
- carb + intake adapter
- points/condensor distributor

Why selling?
Use very sparingly and got a diesel crew cab truck for heavier towing. This was built for Colorado mountains when I lived there many years ago. Idaho mountains can be explored mostly by car on forest service trails, or by dirt bike on single tracks.
