I think you have a cowl hood on it if it's the same as the pic in your signature. How tall is the cowl. I want to order one. Had one on my 98' and 97' subs. I really liked the look. 2"....?
I’m not sure. It’s a Goodmark.

Anyone know if the 06' Yukon XL Denali came with air shocks and an onboard compressor for ride adjustment? Thks

Yes, almost 100%. Look at your RPO code inside your glovebox. Z55 means autoride/ self leveling.

Ok saw that today. Now is there a way to over-ride the auto system. Just curious. I do love the ride. Also was wondering if I'd have to do away with it to add a 3" front and 2" rear lift?

Yes you can delete the system but if it’s still working, there’s no need. You can buy some threaded rod and lengthen the ride height sensor rods. I used some small metric bolts with matching thread and cut the heads off, then used them to make shortened ones when I lowered mine. I like having the auto leveling when I’m towing or loaded. There’s a ton of how-to on YT about this.

Coming along really nice and looks like it'll be bright inside during the day. As for torquing by hand, could you not set the cordless screw driver to lowest torgue...?

Haha. You commented before I realized I posted that in the wrong thread.! I moved it to “what are you up to”.

Anyway, no that doesn’t work. That’s what I have it set to but depending on the hardness of the wood in each particular location it either over or under drives it. The rubber washer is supposed to just touch the surface and start to compress but not be squished. They’re touchy.
