I just got finished installing my 2004 Yukon XL Denali by putting on 2" Specers on my 23" wheels with 305/40/23. It looks mean with a wider stance. with out the specers installed the tires never rubbed but when I put the 2 inch spacers Iit rubbed. The wheels are sticking out of the of my wheel fender about 1 1/2 inches. I love how this looks. This took alot of midifications to the wheel fender but I got it to work with no rubbing. I love it. The Looks draw alot of attention. People ask about the offset of the wheels but with the 2 inch spacers there is no need for offsets. The reason I bought the 23" Giavonnas rims is because I was talking with a guy from Ebay who were trying to sell these rims for $1200. I looked it up and the rims cost $1000 per rim. With persistance I kept talking with him until we met on a price. I paid $550 for all 4 wheels shipped. That was a deal of a lifetime. I also wrapped the tires in Kuhmo EXT 305/40/23'* for $775 for all four tires shipped. My luck was moreless based on persistance, I worked on the rms and tires for about 4 months before the owner cracked and sold them for a greta price. Im not sure how to post pictures so any help I would appriciate. Take Care and I hope to hear from you soon. God Bless

Once I get a phot bucket account I will get them sent. Also I just changed the oil on my baby with Mobil 1 Extended Performance 5W-30 at $9.65 quart, it cost me $90 for an oil change on my Yukon XL Denali with K&N Oil Filter and I also Changed my 2005 Bonneville GXP V8 North star which takes 8 quarts of Mobil 1 Extended life cost me $97.20 including a K&N Oil Filter. I cleaned and recharged both of my K&N air filters and they are ready to get out and turn some heads. I also installed 6 Blue Dots on both of my tail lights. Looka great. Tomorrow I tackle the interior.

Tomorrow I need look over the truck, I seem to have a loose wire. The engine stutters. RPM drops to zero and then jumps right back up.

Made a new part for my column shifter in my truck and now seems to shift gears ok, but hard to get out of park position. I had to drop my steering column to test fit the top and front of the dash I'm building. Then I chopped off some of the metal of the old dash.

Installed one of my fancy solid front motor mounts. I was surprised at how bad the stock NA engine destroyed the factory mount. Drives like a completely different car now, it took about an hour to wipe the smile off my face.

PS: The bottom bolt on a factory motor mount apparently requires an 18mm deep socket. I didn't have an 18mm anything anywhere... Thankfully the neighbor did and I've got a new tool on my shopping list.
