Now You Can Have A Diesel Chevrolet Suburban Thanks to Duraburb Inc.

The suburbans can reportedly tow up to 17,000 pounds after the conversion.

If you ever wished for a diesel Chevrolet Suburban or GMC Yukon XL that was made after 1999 then you are in luck. Duraburb Inc. in Apopka, Florida specializes in Duramax conversions using all OEM parts and a lot of man hours.

In each video (they are primarily Youtube and Facebook based), Duraburb makes a point that they have tried to stay as factory-friendly as possible when conducting these vehicle conversions. The video below shows off two of their more recent builds and right off the bat you are greeted with impressive power outputs. After a 6.6-liter Duramax engine swap, one of their GMC Yukon XLs reportedly makes 450 horsepower and 750 pound-feet of torque. If that didn’t catch your attention, the gentleman filming informs us that his conversions are capable of towing 17,000lbs when equipped with the tow package.

Unlike many homebuilt conversions, Duraburb ensures the electrical system is functioning the same way it did when the vehicle left the factory. The adjustable four-wheel-drive, ABS, traction control, etc. are all functional and no dash lights are falsely illuminated. Hopefully they do a conversion on the 2017 Silverado.
