    Not sure if you guys do this in your neck of the woods, but in the Philly area, Ribeye sandwiches on a hard roll with long hots is very big here. Very big with us Italian folks.

      As it turned out there was a big market for long boards. So much that Greg was able to close down his California operation and move it to Hawaii where he still is today.

        133,229 miles I just replaced the transmission (it has less then 50 miles on it)

        Door Handle on drivers side has broken 2 times

        Windshield has cracked in exactly the same spot 2 times as well

        The current problem is a kinda large refrigerant leak (loss of charge in 4 days) Im guessing the leak is in the rear evaporator coil but have not had the time to tear into it

        and still love it..

        Most likely its the line running along the frame to the rear ac unit as you said. 3 of the family suburbans we had the lines capped and never looked back.

        They have been ok trucks for the most part. I am getting sick of chasing down electrical issues. Mechanical stuff doesn't bother me one bit, but electrical... yuck.

        The last 2 suburbans my brother has gotten were both on bartering deals, both times he has come out way ahead!
