New to me tow rig: '95 Suburban 2500

Flew over to the other side of the country to pick up this big ol' beast in Phoenix. Drove it 1800 miles back to East TN this weekend.
2500 beefy frame, 14-bolt rear, 4x4, 4L80e, 3.73 gears, throttle body 454. 115k miles.
While I rarely tow the Rubi, this will tow the rallycross Miata much better than the Rubi.

The Suburban and any model pickup truck are the vehicles of choice in Texas. That will be a hungry beast but will make a great tow vehicle.

I use to have a 93 burb like yours. Great vehicle, moved on to diesel though. I miss the interior storage space though.
