My Suburban

Suburban is the original SUV. It was introduced in 1935 and is the oldest, continuously
produced vehicle nameplate in the industry.

My Suburban Seats 8 passengers including the driver
Black on Black with Leather interior:

My particular model is a 4 Wheel Drive powered by a  5.3L V-8 VVT DI  with Active Fuel Management (L83)  mated to a GM 6L80 transmission. Together these allow Suburban to produce 355 HP with 383 Ft/lbs of Torque.

My personal upgrades include:

Pedal Commander  – This is a throttle response controller. Basically what it does is allows you to remove throttle body response delays on your electronic accelerator pedal. Effectively, it allows your engine to respond faster so your car can accelerate faster! It also has the reverse effect in ECO-Mode.

Eco-Mode allows you to save a lot on gas.  I can get 18 l/100km driving in ECO-Mode where normally I would be getting 22 l/100 km in the city. Unbelievably, I have had it as low as 11 l/100 km on the hwy.

These are amazing off road tires that give a mean look to the Suburban! Additional benefits are that they are Severe Snow Rated and carry a Standard Limited Warranty of 6 years. Being a 10 ply tire, its extremely tough and with the added bonus of log tread-life and amazing mud and snow traction make them a great truck tire.

Note: They are louder than a standard tire…about twice as loud so keep that in mind before you buy.

 

Leveling Kit

I got my Leveling Kit installed at Birchmount Spring here in Scarborough Ontario.
These guys are rock solid – Quality Performance suspension work. They know what they are doing and are reasonably priced.

They did my truck in about an hour – Just Awesome.

This set of lower front strut mount extensions immediately offers increased ground clearance without the hassle of a long and drawn out installation process.
