General Motors truck brand, GMC, launched a badge-engineered version of Chevrolet’s second-generation K5 Blazer in 1991 as a 1992 model as a two-door full-size SUV.  For the 1995 model year, GMC introduced a four-door version of the Yukon.  Shorter than the Suburban on which they are based, Yukons shared the GMT400 platform. This is a true truck chassis derived from the one in the Chevrolet Silverado full-size pickup truck. GMC offered two-door and four-door models in either rear- or four-wheel drive versions. Four-door Yukons featured a six-inch longer wheelbase and nearly one foot greater length than their two-door counterparts.

The standard engine was Chevrolet’s 350 cubic inch (5.7 L) LO5 small-block V8. Beginning in 1998,  “AutoTrac” full-time all-wheel drive became standard on four-wheel-drive models.

Eric is the second owner of this 1999 GMC Yukon SLE, having purchased the truck just over three years ago from the original Southern California-based owner.  As the undercarriage pictures and trailer hitch indicate, this Yukon has never been exposed to road salt, as it looks brand new underneath. The brake lines still have their assembly line decals, and many other production crayon markings are still legible and prove that fact.  The undercarriage, door jambs, rocker panels, and hinges are spotless and show no signs of corrosion or salt damage. Eric indicates this
Yukon is an unmodified, well-maintained example.

Eric notes that the original owner kept this Yukon in a garage, as the exterior paint and clear coat show no signs of failure. The dashboard has no cracks, and even the instrument dials are bright and show no signs of fading.

Originally thinking he would keep this Yukon as a daily driver, Eric decided to preemptively go through the engine shortly after he purchased this Yukon. In addition to replacing the head gaskets, he installed New bearings, timing chain and sprockets, oil pump, and gaskets. Eric used all OEM parts to reseal the engine and reassembled everything back to how this California emissions-certified Yukon left the factory.

While this Yukon features factory air conditioning and the desirable rear air package, Eric notes he never evacuated and recharged the system after he refreshed the engine. Everything for the A/C system is in place and functions properly; it will need to be properly purged and recharged for the system to work as designed.

In addition to the factory-installed Class III trailer hitch, Eric notes that his Yukon features four (4) brand-new, matching tires.
