The early Cadillac Escalade is a pop-culture icon, and I bought the best example ever.

    That chassis in C10 format is selling fast. I have found fords and dodges of the same years 2000-2007 in better condition for much less, but the GM will be rust buckets and still selling for $10,000:if a 4wd. I had a 2000 z71 short bed standard cab and I can’t find a shortbed standard cab to save my life. I’m gonna have to make one out of a long bed work truck and shorten it.

    The joke would have been funny as a compilation at the beginning or a few times in the video. Not both..and not every time. Jeeze, to either Tyler, the editor, or whomever made that call, stop it. It reeks of "trying too hard".
    Also, it is a really good looking color for that SUV.

    Honestly the plan to rebuild one would be pretty difficult depending on the condition of the original because it’s really difficult to get replacement parts on these Escalades. I also think some of the platinum models also came with a heated steering wheel, and I love these because of the heated and cooled front and rear seats and cup holders.

    In total my family owned 6 of these. Every configuration possible. Even a Hendrick Motorsport limited edition Escalade, it had a super loud exhaust and a cold air intake essentially for that package. They all really were junk. Our GMC Yukon Denali was way better built. The ESV Platinum was by far the worst. The air ride failed yearly. The best was our EXT that we used to go to drive in movies and go to the beach with.
