Thanks!! I like it so far. It's loaded, has a tv/DVD player, moonroof, 6 disk in dash CD player, heated leather... Oooooh lala! So much snazzier than the ford ever was. Only thing I do miss is the size of the expedition. It was much bigger. But this truck has 100,345 miles and has a 2yr warranty. The old hag had 185k and was slowly taking a dying leap. I got $2k trade tho which helped.

Congrats! Especially on getting ones with such low mileage, definitely not cheap to get one with low mileage. Being an ex-yukon XL 2500 owner and a current suburban owner I can say, I love these trucks.

The 00+ have many updates that give them a 1-up on the older gen as well. Only downside is the body panels seem to be a lot thinner and tend to rot out more quickly.

Yes, I paid a pretty penny... $12,900 but after trade I financed $10,900. Booked at $14k so I think I did ok. Luckily there is no rust what so ever **for now**

Not a bad deal especially being loaded and low miles. My favorite color too....

90% of ones I looked at around here were all rotted out so to find a clean one, that alone costs big bucks.

Color is deceiving. It's charcoal gray with a ton of metal flake. At times it appears black, other times it appears purple... Kinda neat

It looked black from the pic. But I looked at an 04 XL that was that charcoal color. Something a little different than the standard black.

We all must know something ;)

Have you seen the prices of new ones? That's plenty deterrent to drive up the price of clean low mileage used ones.

That ford did nothing good for you. Seemed like it was constantly broken etc. Plus.. we know way more about GM stuff to help out.

Yeah..hi

I approve! Not that it matters anyways.

Nice rig, I actually miss my Suburban sometimes. Please post more pics when you get a chance.

BTW, don't forget to change your year and trim in profile. LOL
