i have never seen a lifted yukon...

...until today. I am talking about the newer ones. I think it looks cheap and these things are meant to be lowered....you judge from the pictures.

If it had better rims and more aggresive tires. To me All Terrains are girl tires!

The chevy wheelwells are very tall but not very wide, which really restricts the size tires they can fit... I think it looks bad because there's still so much open fender on there... not to mention ugly wheels and tires.

Not my bag. Personally I think the Tahoes look a million times better than the Yukons.

I do not like the look of lifted chevys at all. Like gearhead said, the wheelwells are too tall. A lifted chevy doesnt even look lifted to me.

I like the front end, but not lifted. I like them on 20's or 22's.

maybe one day chevy engineers will realize "hmm....tires are round, so why have we made our wheel wells square for the last 30+ years?"

That just looks so out of place.
I wonder what it looks like at full flex with those wheel wells?

i didn't even see it when i parked, but when i got out of my truck i saw it sticking up between 2 cars. It really does stick out..in a bad way. I wish i saw who drove it.

the real bad thing about all new chevy's and gmc's as my buddy says, is they are lower stock than fords or dodges. you take a brand new chevy silverado 1500, dodge ram 1500, and f150, put a 7 or so inch lift on all 3, and the chevy is gonna be sitting lower than the other two
