I picked this up last weekend. It's a sweet ride with plenty of power it has the 5.3 in it. I took a trip down to Florida with my trailblazer pulling my 20' travel trailer. First stop Midas in Kentucky for a new converter all plugged up with no power. They also told me there was a fuel rich code probably an injector or two. So finally made to Disney all of us were happy to make it. There for 1 week. Then we headed for the coast for 3 nights at the beach. Check engine light on for the fuel rich problem. two days later an exhaust leak developed. The exhaust manifold had a crack in it. :hissyfit: you can imagine my frustration. I sure all these things were related. I wasn't about too fix all this when I got home I started looking for a new truck. Went to the Chevy dealer and found my Tahoe. I miss my trailblazer I had it for 6 years but my new Tahoe is awesome. Well not new it's an 08 with 34,000 on it. check it out.

Nice, I really like the new body style Tahoes. How many miles on it? I looked at them and Yukons pretty extensively when buying my 9-7 but only wanted the LTZ or the Denali and with the equivalent low miles on the 9-7 and Nav and DVD they were more than I wanted to spend. Plus most of the Yukon Denali's were the XL version and the LTZ Tahoe totally loaded were far and few.
