    Hello, I am new to not only this group but to the yukon as well. I just purchased a 2004 Yukon AWD? It has the AWD switch in the vehicle or at least based on the research I have done it matches the pictures of one. And my question to the group is, did they make an AWD Yukon? Note that mine does not have any denali badges on the vehicle. I was just wondering if its possible that it could have been a special order, or if someone unknowingly put the wrong switch into the vehicle (if that is possible). I would appreciate any help I could get, thank you for your time.

    if your switch lets you drive in rwd only, its a yukon.

    4 hi and 4 low, 2 hi then the awd button.

    Hey thanks for the quick response, i have a different switch in mine. I put a couple a pics of it. Does a 4wd switch have the same connections as an awd switch? Could someone have put the wrong one in?

    Interesting, I appreciate the clip. So would you happen to know if the switch down below is another type of 4wd switch?

    full-time 4wd transfer case and StabiliTrak system which was an option on some GM SUVs. It is a full time system with (AFAIK) no provision to lock the center diff.

    I just didnt think they made it in awd, i thought only the denali edition was awd. I have no reason to think this haha its just off of looking up parts and the sites asking me what vehicle i have and an awd yukon never seems to be available as an option. I appreciate the feedback.
