    Found it randomly browsing through the internet.

    It's funny that even though the suburban went through several owners, the truck virtually stayed the same and even if there were changes, they were subtle and kept the original look that Grumpy first made.

    That's because it's already rad and doesn't need anything changed!

    They took off the rare factory roof vent it had from it being an ambulance in the Army. I would have left it myself.

    For reals. I would've kept the GMC front end as well. I was digging the original Olive Drab green with the logo on the front doors too. Oh well, it came out sick at the end.
