The Q steer is a stand alone function that only looks at speed to switch its action, yea it reverses, how is that for trick! At low speed you turn left the rear turns right and you sort of slosh around, you can u-turn in the same radius as my VW Jetta! Once you break a thresh hold speed (probably 20 mph or so) it “switches” and when you go to change lanes the rear wheels turn the same direction making at speed lane changes a snap. It even has a trailer mode that reduces the action by 50%. The Diff is a Dana 60 so it is up to the Dmax and handles it just fine.

This is one clean truck and the owner is very picky but this far surpassed even his expectations. With the 5” MBRP, Banks Ram Air and the slightly smoky tune this dog will hunt! Its not a race car but its no tool on the asphalt, it will just plane HAUL A$$!

And it looks good while doing it.

I’ll post the other YukonXL that was here at the same time its SICK!

6” FabTech lift 2” Body lift 325/50/22 Toyos and the same HD front clip as this white one.

God I love my job!

I have been drooling about a duraburb vehicle for a few years now. Wish I lived on the East Coast rather than Western Canada. Currently I drive a procharged escalade, and my wife a magnacharged Denali XL, and they would both look good, and perform even better with a 500 HP, 800 Ft-lb of torque power plant in them!

My question Eric, is how far in advance would a person have to "get in line" for a build, how long would the build take, and again an estimate of the approximate cost. I am seriously considering this option for both vehicles, as I think I could upgrade both (the Denali is an 03 and the Escalade an 04) for less than the cost of a new SUV (of which the lack of power would still leave me lusting for a duraburb conversion).

The reason I ask is because I may be able to work this around a trip to DisneyWorld one year.

Thanks in advance.
