TFLtruck: Go Big – No Payment Needed Ep.2.

Last time on the Go Big video series, we introduced these three old huge SUVs that we plan to convert into overland camping vehicles. We also found out that my 2003 Cadillac Escalade is (by far) the quickest accelerating SUV we bought. Nathan brings a 2000 Ford Excursion, and Tommy has a 1999 GMC Suburban. In this episode, we bring our SUVs to our friend Toby at German Auto, who is a certified mechanic.

The “Go Big!” series is brought to you by our friends at YAA. Go to to start the search for your next vehicle with the help of their team of auto advocates.

The GMC Suburban cost Tommy $4,000. The Escalade cost me $6,000. The Excursion cost Nathan $8,000. Which one of us purchased the best big SUV for the money? Which truck has some serious problems? Toby goes deep with his inspections to find all of the problems. My Escalade has almost no brakes left. Nathan’s transmission has a slight leak through a crack in the case. Yikes.
