Well I Put myself in more debt. Lol bought an 05 escalade with 83k on the clock. Super nice inside and out. Pretty much every bell and whistle except the climate controlled cup holders. The 6.0 in it has some good power also. It's no DMAX for sure. The gas mileage is gonna suck but u gotta expect that with the territory. I had planned to buy her a convertible mustang a few months ago but surprised her with a ring instead. (I know, what am I thinking!) lol but honestly she derserves a nice ride after pimping a minivan for a few years. Maybe I bought myself some points for a new turbo also. Bad thing is if a blow up the DMAX I'm driving the minivan! Not so good

If I could figure out why the wife's steering is the way it is, I hate how "responsive" her Tahoe is, I would drive her's also.

Thanks Greg, and mainec I totally agree with u on the steering. Man is it touchy. Great for tight spaces but not great around long turns.

I agree 100% Wayne. When she told me she found one that was quicksilver I cringed. We looked at about 100 of these and the black ones r hands down my favorite. We found one that was a dark blue, and it was sharp. But this one is super clean. I'm gonna throw some black 20's on it and see if I like it.

The new tahoes and suburbans are very touchy. They are well planted suv's compared to what they were.
That escalade looks nice!
I sold my wheels to a guy on here with a duramax escalade.

Schmoo. :rof :rofl I drove my truck in when I first got it. I was so worried I would get something on it. Of course we had an upset and it ended up with catalyst all over it. Had to stop on the way home to wash it.

Who is your lady? I've probably seen her. I try to stay off the second floor if you know what I mean. :drink
