So not very unique. I’d go for that gmc Yukon front end if I were going thru the trouble. Gets you headlights that actually put out light vs the originals.

The Yukon lights are the same....aren't they? the Grille is the only difference for 00-06 Burbs/Yukons I thought...?

Or do you mean the Denali lights?

*edit*

I guess the GMC lights are a spec different, never noticed. Not sure why they'd put out any more light than the Chevy ones?

*edit edit*

Jeez, even the hood is different between the two it looks like, I'm a little surprised given how subtle the differences are.

I’ve never owned that gmc front end but my Chevy headlights (same as yours) were the fucking worst. Low light output and the jiggled over bumps. I ended up buying some depo (supposedly dot approved) projectors and they were better output wise but the housings still jiggled. My only complaint with that truck other than being slow.


I’ve read people saying the housings were better on the gmc of the same year.

My lights donít jiggle, but the output admittedly is not super stellar, but not so bad where Iíd really consider it a nuisance.

That's just the front bumper, and body color within the grille it looks like?

I like that style of side-step better than what's on my truck now (That I hope to tear off today or this week).

I REALLY dig that. given I haven't put any money into suspension, I can always change direction. The Roof Rack is really just a style choice so I can have light mounting points without drilling into my roof or body. Lowered with a roof rack just goes toward a 'truckster' direction, I wonder how awkward that would look.

Like I said earlier, back in the day, when I saw that in all the documentation, I was like "WTF! Why don't we get that here!?"

Now, i'm indifferent. I can see how many don't like it.

IT'S NOT GOING TO BE THE SAME COLOR

that'd be enough to keep me from doing it.

since all wrapped suburbans look like they should be on 32's blaring big tymers.
