Imagine - your exact truck has shown up at the local U-Pick-It salvage yard and there is NOTHING wrong with it!
It has all its OEM parts.
They all work perfectly.
Question is…
What 3 parts would you choose and why?
GO!!

Dash
Drivers seat cushion
Steering wheel

Not that mine are bad, but those seem to be the most worn or broken/cracked items that I would want to have a new one on hand or in storage for future use

Very good suggestions given your current daily is a 2012 Yukon Denali XL…

Could you imagine trying to best answer this question without knowing ANYTHING about the OP’s current vehicle? Year, make, model, trim level, drivetrain?

Whether this is a hypothetical question or a situation you have found yourself in @SpineDock help us help you man.

Post current year make model trim level drivetrain and mileage of your current rig.

Current year make model trim level drivetrain and mileage of the unicorn rig you found at the junk yard.

Let’s pretend it’s a brand new version of your Year, Make and Model.
What would you choose then?
3 parts? hmm
engine
transmission
front differential
why? because these are the eternal parts
I had the engine replaced once under a warranty so it did not really cost me much around $1,000 because of options i took but, the billed cost was $9,999.00 (new crate motor & new water pump and misc)
transmission was rebuilt/upgraded for 500hp, my cost $4,300.00
front differential was also rebuilt under a warranty, not sure what the cost was off-hand but I am guessing around $1,200-1,400.
aside from the rear diff and the above mentioned parts keeping these things on the road is not that costly

All hypothetical but to better prepare myself in case I come across any of these parts that match up with my Y M and M
The more I learn from you guys about my truck, the better!

2015 Tahoe LT
51k miles
No mods YET!
Had to replace the MyLink screen module and the compressor so far…
Changing oil every 5k no matter what and going to do the FULL delete with Cam, oil pump, etc. when I have the funds
Thanks for playing along guys!

Interesting how everyone’s answer is slightly different, most likely, depending on their experience with their vehicle.

Some of the answers I didn’t think
about were:

Driver seat
Dashboard/Interior
Steering wheel
Front differential
Transfer case
Body

I would grab:
Engine
Body
Transmission
