In summary, the GMC Yukon combines its rugged capabilities with a high level of luxury and refinement.

Whether you're driving in the city or venturing off-road, the GMC Yukon provides a luxurious and enjoyable experience.

Under the hood, the 2023 Yukon roars to life with a potent engine. The available 6.2-liter V8 engine or the 3.0-liter Duramax Turbo-Diesel engine ensures you have the power you need to conquer steep inclines and rocky paths. Let's face it, sometimes getting to that breathtaking mountaintop view means navigating some seriously challenging terrain.

But power is just the beginning. The 2023 GMC Yukon is equipped with a 4WD system that can adapt to various conditions, making it your go-to vehicle whether you're splashing through muddy trails or scaling rocky hills. With selectable terrain modes like Mud, Sand, and Rock, this SUV can fine-tune its performance to suit your off-road playground. 

Imagine you're deep in the heart of a dense forest, and the path ahead is filled with mud pits. You engage the Yukon's Mud mode, and suddenly, it feels like you're driving on a smooth, muddy highway. The 4WD system optimizes traction and power delivery, ensuring you effortlessly glide through the muck.

Off-roading often means towing your toys—whether it's a couple of dirt bikes, an ATV, or a small camper. The Yukon's impressive towing capacity allows you to bring along everything you need for an unforgettable outdoor adventure. Or imagine you and your buddies are planning a weekend camping trip deep in the wilderness. With the 2023 Yukon's towing capacity of up to 8,200 pounds, you hitch your camper trailer and head off without a worry, knowing your Yukon can handle the load.

You're exploring a trail notorious for its uneven terrain. With the Yukon's ground clearance and responsive suspension, you navigate the bumps and ridges as if you were driving on a freshly paved road, all while enjoying a smooth ride.

install of m&R led light bars 

We went ahead and designed a metal bracket that fits 40in M&R Automotive light bar(s). Our LED light bars are very slim, only 3/4in thick. This gives us the ability to install them behind the grille without interfering with active shutters. They are powerful with up to 15,000 lumens each.  

The LED light bar comes in single color: white or amber, OR dual color: main white with amber DRL backglow. 

After tackling to take off the grille, we realized it is not necessary to remove it all. About half way off works fine. This way you don't touch any sensors and electrical wires. Honestly, the most difficult are side bolts that are a bit tricky to reach and unscrew. Once the grille is half way off, the metal bracket is easy to install reusing factory bolts. You are able to adjust your light bar(s) up or down depending on your liking and what gives you the most light output.

We went ahead with our favorite wireless wiring harness Joinfworld 8 Gang Switch Panel. The install is pretty simple because it's wireless and I don't have to bring any wires inside the cab. That's a whole other project on it's own, so why not go the wireless option?
