Custom GMC Yukon

Not many people would customize a vehicle to this extent and then still have the courage to drive it everyday. This show vehicle, destined for the SEMA Show (look for it in the K&N booth and at the Kicker Air Bash), is owner, Steve Burkett's daily driver. He's even contemplating driving it to the show from Arizona. But as crazy as that may sound, if you've always dreamed of having a wild custom ride, it's kind of cool to be able to drive it all the time. Who needs another trailer queen?

A custom Lexani grille really sets off the front of the vehicle.

The real highlight though of course is the Kicker audio system, featuring multiple L7 woofers and the ZX series of amps. Total system power is rated at 3000 watts. At our Show n Shine event, this truck was bumpin' the entire night.
