    Good morning! My name is Nick, or Rapmastac1, and I just acquired a 2003 GMC Yukon with 199k miles. This is the first large vehicle I have ever owned besides my 2004 Nissan Quest from a couple years back. Im going to be getting sime pictures up soon, the Yukon is filthy! Ill get some after shots as well to show what a little elbow grease and know how can accomplish.

    I got this because it was a great deal, the 4x4 is going to help when I move to the middle of nowhere during the winter. I also love camping, so this beast is perfect with the off road capability and interior space for my roommates and our dogs.

    After I clean it up Im just going to chase down some gremlins. My goal is to go from the 31” tires to 35” tires and get maybe a 3” to 4” lift done. Do some touch up to the paint, and replace several bits and pieces in the interior.

    Im a car salesman and have access to getting a lot of parts and labor at my employee discount. Any suggestions or input is totally welcome. I will get some pictures up later today.

    Welcome to the forum Nick! Sounds like you have some pretty good ideas, be sure to post up pic's and you should probably think about starting a build thread to keep track of changes and mods that you do to your rig.

    Thanks for the welcome guys. Here is a little something so far, first is before second is after. Amazing what a little elbow grease and knowing what product to use for what. It smells so nice inside! Fixed a lot of components while I was at it.

    Some outside shots as well. The front bumper is dented messed up on the driver's side, I am planning on getting a new grill, headlights, and bumper down the road. The important thing is everything is on and nothing will fall off!

    I used Resolve. They sell a kit at Wally World that has a scrubbing brush attachment. I used that as well as a hand brush. I'm going to hit the carpets again after my move.
