Description: One of a kind unmolested 1988 GMC Suburban 2500 3/4 ton. This truck is in excellent shape and only has 52,500 miles on the original 5.7L V8 and automatic transmission. I bought it from the original owner with the intentions to make some changes to it but after I really started looking at it I decided that it is entirely too nice to do what I want with it. I have all of the original manuals and paperwork to it including the original window sticker with all of the options. I also even have the service records that show each oil change and any service all the way from 0 miles to 52,260 which is what it is today.
