Ok back! Well, it'* a '97 SSE with chrome t-stars, charcoal leather and no CCR. It'* in very good shape and they are looking to get rid of it. Now the bad - The trans apparently took a ****, so that'* the only thing wrong with it. I guess it all comes down to the offer I'm gonna make, then I will have enough to get a JY trans. 4T60e in the '97 right? It'* a L36.

The L67 got the 4T65-E for 97, the L36 got it in 98

Wow. Guess shipping is out of the question. I'll have to search harder near me.

If the tranny took a crap, it may have enough miles to make me worried about the UIM. I'd definitely do some preventitive maintenance on any higher mileage L36 I bought

Good luck!
