My google-fu is weak.

I need to know what kind of rear door you would find on a late 90's era Chevy Suburban. I can find lots of pictures of newer ones (2004-now) but can't seem to find any rear shots of the older models.

I need to know, is it one of the hatches that lifts up, or more like regular doors in the back that open out.

The 1997 had side-hinged rear doors that swing outward from the center.

I found this (http://www.cargurus.com/Cars/Overview-c1048-1990-Suburban.html) - it lists Suburbans from the beginning of time through the 00s.

Hope it helps. :D

They typically had double swing-out doors, but there was also an option for a tailgate (horizontal) door and lift window.

I had a friend who had a late 90s model. It had the swing out doors.

They had both the conventional tailgate with liftgate glass or split doors. I owned a 1997 Tahoe which came in both flavors.
