Hard pass. Looks like a former law enforcement vehicle and around here they go for a lot less than that when they're auctioned off. Especially for almost 200K miles/12 years old with a list of problems like that.

Former law enforcement ?? duh Umm wrong there pal. This NEVER was in law enforcement service( I also deal in cop cars) they run Tahoe PPV's and base option Suburban 2500 LS pkg, They don't drive around in loaded up LTZ Suburbans unless they were drug seized or something That front bumper is a "ranch hand" or brush guard, NOT a police push bar. MANY ranch owners/farmers have these on their trucks. See em on the roads here in Oklahoma all the time lol BUT driving up I-35 other day, People did move out of my way quickly on the left lane HA !!

Looking at the maintenance history, I say no. Makes me nervous cause trans fluid is dark. "Knock on wood" lol hide This week it's getting a trans service, New Filter and fluid. For now I put a bottle of Lucas trans conditioner in it and pray lol Dave

Wellllll let's say I'm a "Auto enthusiast" lol happy I pick up good deals like this when I see them and yes i do drive them for my needs I'm at 10 cars now in my fleet( Ya I need help lol), But thinning down to 2-3 since i'm moving soon. Gonna keep this rig family trips, My low mile Silverado HD 4x4 for work and a basic car for daily driving needs that's all. Keeping on top of 10 cars for maintenance and paying insurance is NO fun Dave

Yaaaaa.... I'm gonna keep it for now, Since it does work on the left lane nicely with morons who aren't paying attention and blocking everyone from passing on the highway shoot "It parted the highway seas like Moses" Dave

After thirty plus yrs in the biz I can always spot a civilian trying to play 'I'm a cop get outta my way' in either a decomissioned/auctioned former police vehicle or self-made look alike. Maybe some day one motions me over and tries to impersonate an Officer. That will be a reality check for them. Bail bond much?

Trying to impersonate a police officer in a LTZ Suburban with NO lights or Sirens ?? ummm.......Okay bop Trying to pass on the right lane is no crime and once again It's a "RANCH HAND" AKA brush guard, NOT a police PPV GO-Rhino push bar !!! MANY farmers and ranchers have them on their suvs and pickups in this region and LEO's down here don't even blink a eye to them. Dave

Not sure why I remained in this … I already mentioned what LEO's drive and I live in a redneck town (lots of gorilla cages on LT's) … a competitor of RH is made here … and I drive by RH often on the way to central Texas …
