Guess I'll introduce the winter beater now that it's sitting the way I want it to.
My lease return came due back in December for my 2021 Silverado, and in November the dealership had this 2006 Escalade chilling in the back in the trade-in lineup. Turns out it`s a well cared for Florida truck that some old Canadian dude drove to Florida every winter until Covid. 129,000mi, new windshield, bunch of factory goodies like the original remote for the DVD player, even the welcome CD in the stock Navigation unit lol. Picked it up for $7500CAD before putting my equity from my lease down on it lol. I bought a truck with my Debit card LOL
It now sits on some $300 used 33.5" Toyo Open Country ATII's, an Amazon 3" lift, and $150 worth of used Tahoe LTZ 20's and Amazon center caps lol.
For fitness it needed rear shocks, parking brake, and front brakes. 6.0 loves fuel but for the mileage this thing will see I'm really not worried. Just wanted to be truck payment free.
Yes I'll be taking the kids overlanding in luxury this summer too. Expect to see ditch lights and a CB whip on this thing in the near future LOL
