My first Avalanche
« on: August 12, 2017, 08:52:33 pm »
I have been interested in the Chevy Avalanche since they first came out, never had a chance to look at one just heard wild stories about how the back glass came out and all that good stuff.

Recently had the chance to get into a 02 Black Avalanche Z71 with body cladding at a good price.  It needs some tinkering, but the body is straight and solid, the engine has 250K runs good with no smoke, uses no oil and the tranny was rebuilt within the last few years.     It has most of the bells and whistles and I am absolutely loving it.

First Chevy in 20 years, first truck in 20 years.   Older family man who gravitated to Dodge minivans and am now ready to play for a bit before I get too old...   Glad to be here, will have lots of questions for you guys.     Thanks for having me!
Every day you wake up is a good day.

Yes I have a list.  I want to put cat back duals on it, a 3 inch suspension lift and some bigger tires.  Probably a cowl induction style hood.   Other than that I'm really happy with how it looks now.

Thanks for the welcome! :cacrocks"
