Click on images to enlarge

The 2006 GMC Yukon Denali XL was built right after the 2005 Cadillac Escalade ESV. They are both of the same format. There are a few differences though. The Denali has a power suicide door. Also the electrical air pump was switched for a engine driven unit.
The vehicle is covered to protect it from imperfections while working on it. The rear suspension is air ride and the front is hydraulically controlled torsion.

Them the floor is welded in and ground The underside is then welded and ground.
