Default Trans behind a denali

anyone know what trans came behind an 01 yukon denali xl? its got a 6.0, but i'm seeing some say its a 4l65e and some say its an 80e

Anything worth selling off one of these? front clip and interior worth anything?

Got one in that rolled over thinking about parting it and keeping the motor/trans for the TJ.

yeah it is the XL... i know its an LQ4. was able to just barely glance at the pan when i was unloading it.

do the factory 4l60e pans have drain plugs? I know this one did. I'd look at it again, but its on the ground, like frame on the ground.

Its a 4l80 I think the 4l60 only went behind the 4.3? Might be an allison, I know they backed the 6.0 but maybe only in the 2500/3500?

I'm reading that its a 4l60E-HD i guess? who the hell knows.

I'm confused because its a 6lug XL with a 6.0.

only reason i care is i'm on the fence about running a 4l60 behind a tuned 6.0 in a TJ, but a 4l80 might be a bit big for a tj.

The 4l60e came behind damn near everything below a 6.0l (4.3 v6, 4.8 v8, 5.3 v8, 5.7 ls1 etc)

From what I've read, my '04 has the 4L65E. Maybe yours is the same?

yup, its supposed to be the same, although i read the 60hd doesnt have a hardened sunshell like the 65 does. but who knows... i'm still scared as shit to run it behind a tuned 6.0 but i guess if it blows, i'll put an 80e in it. the trans is supposed to be freshly rebuilt.

Look at the RPO codes in glove box, 65E=M32 and 80E=MT1 IIRC

I wouldnt be too scared with a 60 behind a buillt 6.0. The trucks they came in weigh a lot more then a tj (most) and hold up to alot of abuse.
Put a good shell and a few other hard parts in it and run it.

My LQ4 came out of a 01 denali and had a 4L60E behind it. frdboy helped me change my computer to a 4L80E because I didn't want to screw around with the wittle trans

It's not being an asshole when he posted nothing but useless jibberish.

A simple wiki provides some fairly basic info that probably could answer the OP's question.

An updated 4L60-E, the 4L65-E (RPO M32), was phased in the 2001 model year when coupled behind the 6.0 Vortec. Five-pinion front and rear planetaries, along with a additional 3/4 clutch allowing 7 clutches in the input housing and induction hardened input shaft assembly, were improved to withstand up to 380 ftlbf (515 Nm) of torque.
