I'm just kind of crazy and like a challenge. It wasn't THAT big of a challenge for me!! I don't really think the Regent and the Frontier are all that similar on installs though. I don't have a Frontier to try.

    To answer the original question...The one we just bought has 200,000 miles on it and it runs great so far. They said it had been sitting for about 3 years. We put a battery in and it started right up. It's the 2500.

    Re: Older Suburban owners

    I have a 1999 Suburban, it has approx 250,000kms on it (I'd have to look for the exact #) and we replaced the transmission about 100,000kms ago. We bought it from an auction, it used to be owned by the military, so my guess is it was driven hard!

    Yep, I do believe it will last a long long time more~
