    Congrats on the purchase. I am very happy with my 97. So far just maintenance stuff after each trip. I'm at 190k and my Sub pulls very strong, runs great, shifts great and the 4x4 works very well. I did have the same issue with the electronic 4x4 switch. Unfortunately my 4x4 light is out so I did about 50 miles of pavement in 4x4 at freeway speed before I noticed. I think my mileage was around 8 on that trip. After reading the manual I noted that I had to be moving slowly to make the change and when I do so it works just fine. I have a small build thread going but nothing original, stole it all from this group of weekend warriors. Lots of good ideas on this forum.

    I had am 98 suburban with the big block , loved that thing . Biggest and best improvement I ever did to it was swapping to the 4 pot yellow bosch injectors, so much smoother starting and driving plus I picked up 2 mpg .

    Thanks for the tip on Meguiar's Ultimate, been using it to lift a bunch of microfine yellow overspray off my black hood. It's working really well with a 10" random buffer and some care.

    Ok good I can upload pics now .
    So I had a busy holiday we ended up being kidless for the weekend and took the Tahoe for a good drive , went snowshoeing, got engaged stayed at a awesome cabin on the Mckenzie river and got some good R&R in .

    Tahoe did great even with a check engine light that popped on right after we left still managed 13 mpg for the trip . I still have some maintenance items to take care of ( ball joints , u joint , change fluids ) but so far I'm super happy with it .

    It was such a beautiful day Sunday we decided to take advantage of it and go snowshoe up to a viewpoint on the back side of Mount hood but somehow missed the turnoff for the viewpoint but still had a great time and ended up getting another 3 miles in .

    So this has nothing to do with the Tahoe but over the holidays I managed to get the bed for my jeep project framed out and mostly skinned . Next is making the lids and tailgate , munchkin was on hand to take care of the measuring and planning for that part of the build.

    Hey no problem, glad I could help . When you get around to waxing it use this stuff does a fantastic job of hiding small imperfections .
