    You can remove it, but you'll have to fill in the holes.

    Ouch. Thats no good. Dont they make any kind of drop-in flat replacement so you dont have gaping holes in your roof?

    I've seen them removed and rubber plugs put into the holes...I'm hoping it was just temporary til they had the time/money to do it right, though.

    Thats probably a very costly repair, no?

    I took mine off. After taking them off, I filled the holes with silicone and covered them with a strip of body molding.

    Black Yukon, sounds like a good idea!

    Do you have some pics of your Yukon? The avatar pic looks awesome. Id love some fullsize pics. Also, do you have pics of your mod? (the body molding strips)

    I forgot the brand name, but I got it from a local pinstripe and molding shop. Make sure you get it from a professional body shop and not the local pep-boys. The pep boys stuff isn't tall enough to cut out the divots in. Talk to a body shop and I'm sure they can direct you to a local source for the molding

    Escalade roof racks are a direct drop on unit, they're the exact same dimensions as the stock gm rack
