I've had my fun with GMT400s, but the only one I have low enough to pull my trailer was the 2000 Escalade, a short wheelbase 1/2 ton. Not ideal for towing by any means. Unfortunately in the current market, a late 90s K2500 Suburban with a 7.4 or 6.5 that wasn't beat absolutely to death was not in the budget, and 6.0 GMT800 Suburbans were similarly priced.

So instead of buying what I wanted, I decided to build it while I had unimpeded access to a shop with a lift.
I found a 2006 Escalade ESV Platinum with a bad trans, but was not happy with a 4L65e/10 bolt and rear coils for towing so next I dragged home a 2001 Suburban k2500 parts truck and got to work.
At this point I'm trying to source a 4L80e, NP246, and 03-06 3 channel ABS pump locally. I either need to find a 2003-06 2500 SUV chassis harness, or modify the Escalade's harness for dual tanks and the 3 channel ABS pump.
