Co-worker looking for a full size SUV

Posting for guy I work with. He's looking for a mid 2000's full sized SUV, Ford Expedition, Suburban, Tahoe, etc. Marque less important than overall condition. Looking to spend about $4500 buyer located in Philly.

Hard to beat the Suburban/Yukon XL if you need big.

I liked mine before I moved up to a Ford Ex.

I like my suburban with the second row captain chairs and the removable third row (MY2000).

3rd or 4th for Suburban. I like the GMT900's but the GMT800's might be more bang for the buck.

I have been peeping Excursions on Autotrader. Something about having a 7.3 or 6.0 diesel makes me want to get one. But then I realize that gas is easier to get and the Suburban works so well.

Nice, it sounds like a 1999-2006 Suburban is the way to go.
Anything to look out for on these? Specific configurations to avoid, etc?

The wife and I wanted another big truck after we sold our old Yukon XL a few years ago.
I found a 7.3 Excursion close to home and reasonably priced....

Make sure the trans fluid looks good and change it frequently. Make sure the t-case actually goes into 4wd.

My 98 sub pulled my first rover project home in 99.

Suburban's are tough to beat. We have had ours for 12 years and 172K. 2 batteries, 3 set of Tires, regular fluids, 2 sets of brake pads/rotors and updated the AC compressor. That's it. Far cry from any Land Rover I've ever owned.

Amen to GMC; that being said, only a LR will truly make one earn/pity the pride of ownership!

I have an 04 Yukon xl 2500... Changed the pads for the first time at 128k. 6.0 motor, 4.10 gears, 2nd row captain chairs, dual batteries, with NW wrangler battery manage, and wired for my fridge. Sucks on gas, but runs and runs. Can't justify buying a new one.

My guess is the diesel Excursions will hold their value and actually may go up. Once our Sub gets closer to 100k I might look a little more closely. Although by that time my oldest will most likely have his license and a car and we might not need a bigger rig. Add-on: but man those Excursions look great with the later model Ford pickup wheels :drool:

They make great tow vehicles for Land Rovers...
My bias is for Chevy over Ford. He's going to end up with a nice ride.

I've been waiting for someone to make a point for towing something unreliable with something more reliable...lol. That's why you need multiples of LR...there is almost always one in the stable that's running!
