figured after all these years i might as well make me a build thread on my yukon. wasen't planning on doing much other than using it as a daily driver but i can't leave anything alone so mods happen. laugh.png this thread will start off with mods i did years ago up until current. mods usually happen slow with this thing but i'd rather do things once and do em right with a well thought out plan instead of a bunch of crap thrown together.
Onto the mods. 03 yukon 4x4. 5.3l. big fan of exploring and camping and such so this is heading in a overland expo style build.

one of my first mods was a rear view camera. sooo nice for hooking up trailers

next few mods. 15% tint on the front doors. 32" bfg muds. 3 hella 500ff's with 100w bulbs
002.jpg

drilled slotted rotors

led drl's

newest mod. baja rack cargo rack. ordered the optional light bar and hi-lift mount to go along with it. being that the rack is almost the exact width of the crossbar mounts i'm considering making custom brackets to bolt the rack down to lower it down slightly. should make it a little more solid too

lights are 55w 7's hids. two spots and two floods. sadly, one showed up d.o.a. have a replacement on the way. something i have to mod slightly is drill new mounting holes for the lights slightly back on the mounting tabs because the lights hit the bar and don't allow me to aim them down lower to be effective. sure do light up the tops of trees like daytime though. lol

were i ran my wiring up to em

that for the most part brings us up to date to the mods. future thoughts are an intake. something for mounting or carrying a full size spare. have a netting system picked out to strap everything down to the roof. just gotta order it. considering a cb set up. rolling around a few other random ideas past all that but not really settled on anything else

that is one of the nicest NBS rigs I have ever seen. All your mods are incredibly useful and look great!!

I'm in love with the backup camera mod, unfortunately I can't find a place for that on my OBS dashboard.

Great idea with that switch panel, it's really nice and clean. It takes a long time to do all the wiring and lining things up, but you hit it out of the park!

How do you like the tires you're running? Any crazy places you've taken the rig so far?

I really like what you have done with her
any specific info on that back up camera I may want to borrow that idea along with the reverse led's I was thinking the hella worklamps on the rack but that makes more sense where you have them
I assume you just tapped into the reverse wires for power
