The oddball square hex socket arrived so a quick mechanical check, (I probably should find a 0-60 psi gauge honestly, but this was 12 dollars) 

 

I let it run for about 45 minutes - 1 hr and let it heat up to operating temp (also double check for leaks, all good there) I would say this is borderline acceptable, the junkyard is going to refund me 500 bucks and I'm going to prep this for listing soon, I will keep the roof rack and the bed setup for the future vehicle, it conveniently fits in the back of a pickup bed because the suburban basically is a pickup.

UPDATE 8/28

went to charge the AC system and it ruptured the rear line shortly after the service was complete so now the AC no longer works, needs a rear AC line. Oil pressure is poor at idle ~10PSI warm I have stopped driving it. makes about 40-50psi around town

8,000 OBO - spare parts included

thanks for playing everyone - it was a wild ride but this should have been a factory option to begin with... damn GM accountants!

and after 10 LONG weeks - I have my new tow rig! no more frankentrucks and no more white: it was time to mix it up a bit

everyone meet Large Marge the Land Barge!

all my broverlanding gear fits nicely in the bed with room to spare, just need to wait on a topper and I can do it without putting any holes in the truck either.

 

the color is olive pearl green and I love it! the blue was a 2nd choice but its just too bright/boyish - but this definitly has an army truck feel to it. I've already been hit on by dudes in the best buy parking lot!

its a loaded 2020 power wagon with an extended warranty (its a chrysler product after all, plus any module or high tech part is gonna have a comma in the repair) I am really excited to not have to touch anything and I can focus on the rx7 rally car that has needed so much attention due to neglect and stage abuse.
