hi there

i have 2004 yukon xl 2wd and a tahoe 2003 4wd can i swap the trany with trasfer case and all the component from the tahoe to the yukon xl

and is it just remove istall and plug and play

 

and how do i know that my yukon xl have tpms cause i don't see tire pressure on my dic

i just see tire pressure light when i turn the key to the start position and when it starts it go off

also if i want to install power folding mirror and power seats will i find the harness in my car mirror and under the seats ready to install

 

thanks

Youde be better off selling them both and buying a 4wd XL or Suburban.

yeahhhh the 4wd swap will not be easy at all i dont even think the frame is the same at all. look at the wheels and see if the valve stem is "bolted" on, if there is, you have tpms (or let the air out of a tire and see what happens) and no you wont find any harnesses. honestly if you want all that itd be easier to sell and buy one with the options you want

I agree I think it would be a mess to do that . Sell them both and buy a 4x4 like you want.

There is too much different to just swap parts. :dunno: Maybe not what you wanted to hear, but thats the way it goes.

i went now and let the air out and the yellow tire light turn on but there isn't in the dic what say it's the front left tire or rear right tire and the the pressure in kpa.

and i wish it was that easy to sell my suv and buy another but it isn't

there isn't alot of yukon xl 4x4 1/2 ton with full features over here.

before 8 month i sold mine and i regret for that and went before 4 days to buy it again

but the guy that took it was greedy he ask 5100$ over the price i sold.

 

by the way i own now yukon xl 2004 2wd and im thinking of buying tahoe 4wd or similar that have those features and make the swap.

I'm getting the impression he is over-seas, and, thus, it's not as easy as trading. I know in Europe it is nearly impossible, even if you can afford it, to get certain american vehicles that are considered "common sight" over here. That why I asked "where is here" :dunno:

yes im over-seas and yes you can't find fully loaded 4x4([yukon xl)

there is fully loaded yukon but xl it's hard

If conversion is your best option, you could always find a set of 3/4 ton axels and do a SAS on the front. The good thing about those is they are custom work and you can kinda make it work for whatever offroad situation you will be encountering most. The bad part is they are custom work and you better know what you are doing to pull it off safely. That and drivability will suffer.

 

 

Then again, would it be possible to cut and stretch the frame of the Tahoe and put the Yukon XL body on it?

 

These are just a couple of ideas that come from my little novice brain. :uhoh:

well, now the simple-stupid question....

 

I know the XL models are a little longer... but could you MAKE a Tahoe work? Seens like a fully loaded 4x4 Tahoe (seems like they ARE available) may be the EASIEST solution, but you cough up the extra length....

 

I mean, converting a 2WD to 4WD, whichever way you twist it, is going to be a challenge, at best.... :uhoh:

cheaper to just buy a 4wd outright...way way too expensive to convert a 2wd to a 4wd let alone alot of room for error

Hey, it is possible. Providing your have joined the more money than brains club..... I know of a late 90tys taheo 2dr that this swap was done on in my neck of the woods.... with that said the electronic systems that are one the newer trucks will make things more complicated..... you may want to find a manual shifted transfer case.
