Does my avalanche count? It’s just a burb that’s missing a few windows

Awesome Rig. I am new to the group and am about to upload photos of my 2002 GMC Yukon. I am currently working on making it my overlanding rig and could use your help. Which ARB Bumper did you end up going with and was it a "simple" swap or did it require some cutting and adjustment. Second, your rook rack, which did you go with? I am interested in the Rino Rack, but of course, just like with our vehicles, "they" don't make them for us. Did you use your factory rails? What did you have to do? Thanks for your help!
Honestly miles are just part of the equation. Maintenance is a bigger part of it as well as the rust situation. While sure it’s nearly a 1/4 million miles, if the chassis and body are in good shape and not rusted, worst case I could see you having to invest a couple $2-3k into it and still get quite a few more miles and years out of it. At some point in a vehicles life miles are just a number. Condition and maintenance carry more weight. If it’s made it this far in its life and the chassis and body are still good then I’d base my price off of the maintenance history with the expectation you might have to put a little cash into it in the next year or two. I’ve owned several Suburban’s (89,91,01 and my current 04) and the 3 previous ones had well over 300k miles before we got rid of them. And my current one isn’t going anywhere soon. It’s currently got 260k on the chassis but the powertrain is a different story (~160k). I’m fully planning to keep it till 500k. Living in California we don’t have much of a rust issue. The paint will peel off from sun damage before any rust concerns. Good luck man. They are great rigs and last a good long while.So what would be considered as too many miles on a well kept suburban? I ran across a very clean 2500 with the 8.1 and its got 238K. I am not certain of the maintenance history yet though.
I have nearly 300,000 on mine. Eng, trans,t-case are original to the truck. I usually make sure that it has oil and coolant, then run it hard. This truck has been very reliable no matter what I do with it.So what would be considered as too many miles on a well kept suburban? I ran across a very clean 2500 with the 8.1 and its got 238K.
