Well, after 2 trips ( short) with our '08 189 hooked up to our 01 Grand Cherokee 4.0, it was clear that the 'hills of Pennsylvania' were going to be too stressful on the old girl ( 203K on the 'clock').
My first thought was to look for a pickup... but the winters here tear them up so soon that nothing in our price range was worth buying. Seems the market for used trucks keeps their resale $$ up.
Shifted gears and started looking at SUVs.
Picked up an 04 Buick Rainier with the 5.3l drivetrain and 107k on the clock!
Need to add a brake controller and get the husky centerline dialed in..... though I will be dealing with that autoleveling rear suspension that GM put in this vehicle. Seems to be some differing opinions on that in cyberland, and I have not picked up the car yet as they are installing an aux tranny cooler, and I did not get to peek at what the manual says on that subject. But we are excited to get back out there......
Soon to be on the road....!
