    I sure am glad I found this forum! I hunted for 2 months to find the perfect new ride and this place was a HUGE help. I was able to find a 1 owner, 07 Yukon Denali XL with 102k miles. Dealership was out in the middle of nowhere and I think that is the only reason I got it for so cheap. Dealership had just done a new oil pan gasket, and new rear air shocks and air compressor. Even better, the previous owner is a dealership "friend" and they work car shows with him. He was more than happy to talk with me before I purchased the car so I got a ton of useful info. How often does that happen!? Dude is a big time corvette guy and took ridiculously good care of this thing. Here are some pics!

    First thing I had to do was get new Tires. Scoured the Internet and am so far very happy with the Hankook Dynapro ATM's in 275/55/20.

    Also swapped over all the interior lights to LED, Ordered the NAV update disc, and got a spare fob and key on the way. I was warned about the Power running boards and wow are thy a huge pain with the winter slush and salt. I just put them up and disabled them. Even if I never use them they look 10x better than the stock boards IMO.

    So far everyone I have shown it to cannot believe it has 100k miles. It does have one spot of rust I will be getting cut out and repaired in the summer. Its the rear wheel well. Barely noticeable now but will become a huge problem down the road. Par for the course in Michigan.

    Howdy! Is the heater for the washer fluid still hooked up and original? They were too hot and GM recalled and disabled them but several companies have made new ones, not so hot that hook right up where the old one did. How do you like the heated steering wheel?

    Heated steering wheel works great! Not as hot as my wife's Kia steering wheel though. That thing will burn your fingers. I have not looked at the washer fluid heater. Is there a way to tell if that is functioning?
