    Default 2001 Yukon XL 2500 restoration

    Yes I said restoration for a 2001

    I bought this for what I consider a crazy deal. It had a rear fender that had a trailer jack knifed into it (at low speed), the interior carpet was a big mess with cool aid and candy, and the service auto ride light was on. Other than that I believe it is in great shape. Here is what I have ordered. And even with all of this stuff customized to my liking I'm less than buying one for the average going price.

    Had rear fender fixed
    new front and rear carpet from stockinteriors.com + matching floor matts
    husky cargo liner
    20" rims with 305/50/20 Nitto Grapplers
    green torsion keys turned 3" to level out the truck
    Bilstein 5100 shocks, just right for the lift
    resistors to trick the autoride system
    Alpine head unit
    Kicker 700.5 amp
    Polk speakers for doors and 12" Rockford Fosgate P3 sube
    new 9" swivel overhead screen to replace the tiny existing flip down
    Cover King seat covers for first 2 rows
    I'm going to use my porter cable and buff the crap out of it
    Diablo Predatro Tuner to adjust tire size and to play around
    Dark tint

    Everything is ordered and has already started flowing in. Today I ripped out all of the sticky carpet and began installing new carpet.

    Here is a dirty picture of it. I'll post up more pics as I start finishing things up. This is just a picture right after my body guy dropped it off today with the fixed rear fender. I couldn't take it to wash it because there are currently no seats. I have a lot of work ahead of me, but thing thing is already turning out to be really nice.

    how is the z71 roof rack different? Would it fit with the sunroof? Thank you for the compliments so far. Does anybody else have ideas on what might be cool. I know it comes down to personal preference, but I think people can see along the lines of what I'm looking for. This will be my wife's daily driver and we will use it to tow our toy hauler (8.1).

    If she was mine, I would take the factory running boards off and look for something a bit more aggressive. Maybe N-Fab or Westin.

    It's funny you mention the running boards. The passenger side was missing when we bought it and I can't decide what to do. I like the way with and without, but the truck is just a tad too tall to get in without something. I'll have to look at some pictures and decide which route to go.

    If I were you I would go for some heavy duty bumpers.
