I scored a set of ‘05 Yukon XL Denali seats this week! the second row buckets came from a Craigslister in Seattle, which worked our perfectly since I had to make a trip to Tacoma on Tuesday. The fronts came from a junkyard near my work. MonkeyB ST gave me some guidance on cleaning up the leather with easily obtained products. I installed the driver’s seat last night, and my butt was happy on the long drive home through Friday traffic today.

A MAJOR bonus to these seats is the built in LATCH child seat retaining system. The original ‘01 seats didn’t have it, and looping the seatbelt through the base of the car seat never really left the car seat feeling secure and solid. Also, they’re super comfy and the leather isn’t garbage like on my originals.

Also, I desperately need a new phone... This camera is cramping my style.
