Do you know what your rear axle weight rating is for your Yukon?

That makes sense!

My thoughts too when i bought it. The main thing was trying to get others with the same tv and tt to chime in on their experience.

There is always a better tv out there and i plan on getting one just a year or two done the line

I would do what you are already doing setup wise and use it for a season see how it does and then figure how important it is to keep it or make a change based on your comfort level driving it pulling and distance you drive

With the 3.73's you will be fine. Exactly the same setup I had. Make sure you get the WD hitch set up right and it will tow well.

When you get ready to go to another TV, you may want to consider a 1/2 ton if you don't really need a diesel 3/4 ton. Don't get me wrong, a diesel would be great, but you don't really need it if you don't plan on going to a bigger TT - and, if you are on a budget like I was, you can get a lot newer and nicer truck for the same money as a much older diesel... just something to consider.
