1997 GMC Yukon SLT (Transporter)
Last updated Jun 15, 2008
I needed a more reliable vehicle for towing the car trailer to the track so the searching began. I wanted a Yukon Denali or Escalade for more comfort but the prices were too high for what I could find. My wife showed this one to me on EBAY and the truck wound up being only 18 miles from where I lived at that time. Looked the truck over, drove it a bit and bought it. It was a great deal for what I needed. It had a lift in it that was cheap and the geometry was not engineered well. After it chewed up the first set of tires in 7K miles I had it swapped out with a well engineered kit and now it drives like it should and to say the least I am much happier. It performs the tasks as expected and gets quite a few complements for a daily driver. I have a desire to continue with upgrades but will need to delay until I can get back to where I can have my shop and all my tools. Until then we just enjoy it how it is.
