    I'm going to run this thing into the ground, so I might as well document it.

    2005 Yukon Denali.
    Got it completely stock with somewhere around 260,000 miles
    I lost a lot of my old photos, but here's one I managed to pull from an old thread.

    First thing I did was pull the running boards off, then the trim. They were in rough shape and had some gouges from being daily'd in New England for 10 years. I still might clean them up and put them back on.

    A couple weeks later I cranked it up because I was bored and tired of the decent ride :bleh:

    It sat like that for quite a while, until I decided to see what amazon had for discount products.
    The grille chrome is peeling and the shell is cracked, so I really didn't ruin a perfect grille by cutting it out.

    And that's how it sits now, dirty and rusting. A little over 292,000 miles

    Most of the time and effort on this has been replacing worn out parts.

    Everyday I seem to change my mind on what I want to do with it. It needs paint work, rockers, a few dents fixed, an alignment, I need to realign the front body panels, I think my core support is bent. I need to rebuild the drivers seat. The clear coat is peeling on the wheels and they are curbed, I need to strip and repair them. Lots of little things to do. Eventually it will get something cool done to it, no idea what it is yet.

    Leave it as is but bag it to lay frame. Spend nothing on paint or other mods
