    With the Awning deployed, how is the interference between it and opening the back hatch? I’ve been contemplating putting on on my yukon xl rack but concerned about how that hatch would contact the awning. Thx.

    2004 Yukon XL K2500 LBZ

    I figured I'd share my list of all part numbers I've acquired over the years that pertain to my particular vehicle. Might come in handy for someone else as these trucks share a lot of common parts across the GMT-800 platform. If you have any questions, I'll do my best to help/answer... Parts...

    Chevrolet Suburban and GMC Yukon XL Registry

    My family always had a suburban as I was growing up. I began to appreciate the usefulness of them at a young age. I learned to drive and took my drivers test in a 1989 V2500. Unfortunately my parents had to give it up with over 460k miles on it. But we got to replace it with another 1989...

    2004 Yukon XL K2500 LBZ

    !!! CAUTION -- Picture heavy post !!! So I've been living on the diesel forums for the last 15 years or so and figured its time to get back into the camping/overlanding/offroad forums again. It's been a few years but I have been known to do some serious rock crawling on trails such as the...

    Long time lurker from Nor Cal

    Hi all. I’ve been lurking around and reading here for a while. Figured I better get with the program and get involved. I’m from the Bay Area in California. My wife and I have a 2004 Yukon XL K2500 with a 2006 Duramax LBZ swap. Started out stock but been slowly getting it ready for some...
