Glad to read that I am not the only big suv owner.

2000 Suburban. Any mods you all have made that you want to share.

(Not trying to hijack)

Someone say mods?

Not sure how much you can get out of the 2000 model (I'm asuming you have the 5.3 LS1 based engine), but if you're looking for a good, low buck with big bang performance mod.....just get a tune. Depending on who burns the PCM for you, you can get huge gains and power and gas milage too. Don't waste your money on cat backs or air intakes or just about any of the other bolt on crap out there. That is unless you want to pop on a turbo or super charger.

Hey just purchased a Yukon XL and found the same. Had an older Suburban (2002) and was able to swap the sytem out. Did you find anyones sysem that is compatable with the door chimes etc. I love the truck, hate the sterio system and the marriage of gm and Bose.




Well it all depends on how far you want to go, but yes, there are numerous adaptors that will allow you to use the factory HU or swap it out and still make everything work. If you have the rear DVD unit, it gets more complicated but still workable. I had it all pretty much worked out and had all the gear and adaptors picked out, but gave up doing it for now when I totaled the costs. Now I’m looking at getting the 08 Sierra Denali when it comes out. (I’m impressed as hell with the new 6.2 ltr). I can live with the Bose for another year and half.

I have a complaint with the 12 mpg on a good day - same motor as the 2002, 30% reduction in milage. Would also like to put some M60 in the puppy, but would settle for less.
