Posting here to say hello.
My name is Chuck, and I am recently a new owner of my first Avalanche. So far I have driven it from Chicago to Florida and the ride is amazing.

Hi CAFC!

I'm Eric, just picked up a '10 Z71 w/30k.  First 'new'(ish) truck ever.  Excited to play with it...not excited about having my first car payment lol.


Look forward to reading and learning a lot here!

Thanks for the welcome!
A little about me. My wife and I live in Trussville Alabama. Our hobbies are rv'ing, dirt biking, ski/wakeboarding, and fishing. I bought my first Avalanche in 2009. It's a burgundy LT. It is my daily driver and without a doubt, my favorite vehicle i've ever owned. Just rolled over 100,000 miles today! Runs, rides, and looks great still. I'll probably own that thing forever. Well, it finally came time to upgrade my wife's car, so, last weekend bought her a 2013 LT Z71 in black! Man, that is a beautiful Avalanche! Needless to say, she is Happy Happy! Me too. Can't wait for my Black Diamond Coffee Table Book to arrive!
Looking forward to getting to know you other enthusiasts!

Hi. New owner of a 2013 LTZ. Silver with black interior. 22" wheels, sun 'n fun, trailer brake, steps and a few other small things. Pretty much every LTZ at my dealer was the same except for two that had the 22s. Had not planned on getting the 22s but that was the only one in my first color choice and they were able to get the numbers reasonable.

Will post a pic when the weather improves. I'm in NW Arkansas and we got a couple inches of snow yesterday. First recorded snow in May. Ridiculous.

Traded an 05 F-150 and 08 BMW 535i. Consolidated to one vehicle. Haven't had a new vehicle in a long time. Wife normally gets the new ones. Narrowed down between new F-150 Platinum and this AV.

Really wanted an SUV but often need a truck, so this was perfect. I did like the F-150. Sweet truck but in the end, the utility and the ride of the AV won out. The Ford was bouncy on rough roads in the back-end. I also would've had to line the truck and add a hard cover.

The Sync system really is much better for Bluetooth integration but that wasn't enough to sway my decision. I will start another thread about my technical questions, but i will just say I'm sorely disappointed in the BT implementation on the AV.

I got the GMPP, so I hope I'm in for the long haul. Beautiful truck and rides awesome.

This forum was very helpful to me pre-purchase. Thanks!

Hi from Edmonton, Alberta. And posting here first as required. Just got one of these little monsters after having a hard time choosing between an F150 (sacrilege!) and a Tahoe. We actually went for the groceries on Saturday and ended up trading our SUV. I guess everyone here is right, I haven't been driving with a grin on my face since I got my DL and mind you, that was some 20 years ago. Bottom line: 2010 AV LS, 45k KM. I'm a happy camper and I can tow my TT, too.

Been on the forum for a while now, but never posted pics or made it official. So, hi  :wave: to everyone and thanks for all of the advice and help over the last couple of years. I am posting pics of my 2004 Z71 Avy that I sold :E: :E:. I loved that truck, but unfortunately circumstances kept me from keeping it. I was laid off a couple of years ago and everything had to go. I really loved that truck and miss it everyday. On a brighter note I have recently bought a 2010 LTZ and love it so far. I snapped a quick pic to post her, but will post another one after the RR and get it all cleaned up. I am looking forward to keeping this one for a long long time. I plan to be an active part of the board and have already printed some brochures to help spread the word.

Hello everyone. 2 weeks ago I stepped out of the Denali world and into the Avalanche world. I must say I do miss having a truck with a 6.0 liter but averaging 19mpg with my 2011 Chevy Avalanche Z71 I just got just makes it all okay.

Hey all! Just wanted to introduce myself. Picked up a 2013 TX edition black diamond today. Been browsing here for a while though.

Looking forward to learning and contributing when I can. I had my self set on a Tahoe but one ride in the new Avalanche and I was done for!!

Tinting the windows tomorrow, does anybody have any advice for mods? Probably going to do a tune or tuner chip, cold air, and exhaust soon.

Also have a question, does my BOSE system have a sub?

Hi all,
Name's John. Bought my first Avalanche about 2 weeks ago; A 2007 All Black LT. I think the wheels are aftermarket, being black, along with low'ish profile tires. (The sales man said the wheels were aftermarket, but they have a bowtie)

Drove full size trucks all my adult life. Had hoped to get into a Sierra Denali, but they seem to be scarce used around these parts.

Found the club while doing research about cold air intakes. Will certainly be reading here extensively for tips.

Hello all.  I just purchased my first avalanche a 2007 LT3 Z71.  I have always liked them since the release in 02 and when my truck got totaled a few weeks ago and the wife said no to a duramax my next thought was the avalanche with needs of a crew cab for the little one and hauling for me.

 :E: Hello, D. here, I am trying to explore an issue I have with my 2007 Chevy Avalanche. The speakers fade in and out, the door bell tone goes low then back to normal, etc. I was told it was the amplifier and that is supposedly located under the console. I have removed a gazillion screws and the console only to not find it. Where else could it be located?  ???Any information appreciated.

Hello from the Pittsburgh, PA area. I've been lurking for a while as I have been looking for the right Avalanche for me. Well, a few weeks ago I finally found it and I absolutely love it. It's a 2009 LTZ with the 6.0L.

I went from this 2004 Sierra Denali:

 :wave: Hi everyone! I bought a 2013 Black Diamond in February and I'm totally in love with it. I had spied a Fairway Green one parked someplace aaannnd ...it was all over but the cryin' LOL. I had to track one down because I wanted the cashmere- colored leather and no one had it. Finally found a dealership outside of Cleveland who could locate one for me. Had the dang thing bought before I actually even saw the exact one I was getting... Now that's true love! Anyhow, now I'm lookin' to do some modifications  :4:  and I found this forum in my searches for ideas. Nice to meet everybody ~~~

New member here. My name is Carl from St. Louis...

Just picked up my 2013 Black Diamond in Silver Ice Metallic on July 5.
My wife and I drove to Independence, MO on July 4 in preparation of picking up the truck on July 5.
We got to see a fantastic fireworks display at Longview Lake on the 4th... It was a great pre-cursor to picking up the new Avi the following morning.

Had a smooth 245 mile trip driving back to STL... Averaged 21.5 MPG according to the DIC. Very impressive considering the truck is not even broke in.

I really love this truck! Looking forward to hanging out on this forum and learning more about my new Avalanche.

Well....I bought a 2007 Avi to replace my 2004 Envoy XUV.  I like the versatility of the Avi and the 5.3.  I really wish I could have gotten a newer XUV but, they stopped making them in 2006.  I like forums and may be some assistance to others from time to time.  I spent 8 years working as a mechanic for GM some years back and still do a lot of my own work.  My current project is to get a snugtop for this 07 to meet my storage needs.  :wave:

I'm Rob, and after spending damn near an entire night browsing this awesome forum, I've decided to join it.  I live in Austin, TX, and I just bought an '07 Sport Red Metalic LT3 4x4 Av on 6/29/13.  In less than a month, I've taken Ruby (that's what I'm calling her) to Port Aransas twice for some beach camping and around Austin for some mountainbiking, and I gotta say: I love this truck.  I'm looking at mods already, and have a ton of ideas in the works.

Including but not limited to:
Cargo cover panel locks of some kind (don't want to have to replace the panels that I was lucky enough to get)
Cargo panel frame system of some kind (liking all the kayak and bike rack mods I've seen)
DVD/NAV upgrade from Bose MP3/NAV
Pre-runner light bar (cuz they look sick)
Color matched bowties (cuz they're better than the gold)
Custom made bug net rear window insert (haven't seen mention of this, but rather like the camping in the bed, midgate down - cargo panels on, but need ventilation)
Also want to run a second battery in the engine compartment, for extra stand-by power out on the beach.

Lots more I haven't dreamt of yet, I'm sure...

Will soon be the proud owner of a 2011 LTZ with all the tricked out options including automatic running boards. Aim to pick it up on Saturday. Using a 2010 Terrain as trade-in....we just need a larger vehicle for towing purposes.

Car is in mint condition and originally came from the states.

Also some new upper control arms for a lift kit. Has anyone done this before? I'd really like to see some pics if anyone's got them. Ill post mine when it's installed. Hope to hear from you guys :D

Hey everyone I had the fortune to pick up my new to me 09 LTZ in Sandstone...I'm not a truck person by any means and I have driven a few and couldn't wait to get to where I was going to get out of the thing but the Avy man the Avy  :A: . I was in love when I saw the new body style in 07 and i saw the Southern Comfort edition I said the only way I would get a truck was if it was an 07+ Avy. Well I had no need for a truck till 2011 when I got my bike and then I was like I really don't need one still. Well after years of the combo or borrowing or renting a truck to do anything with my bike I decided to this year for my birthday gift to myself I was getting my Avy. Had my heart set on a summit white but couldn't find one I liked then I saw her and I was like I can work with that color. I picked her up a month ago and so far had the windows tinted 15% front, 15% over the factory tint on back seat and 35% on the rear glass. It looks sweet and legal thanks to the light color interior    :4: . To me the bose system was lacking so I got 2 10's under the back seat to add some depth and face it bass. I have to have the HID's so I already have a set of headlights on the way to the retrofitters that did the lights for my car and my bike. The only other thing to do besides upgrade to 22's from the stock 20's  is, and yes I have seen the post and comments about ppl not liking it, the southern comfort body cladding. Hey its my truck and I like it.

looking forward to picking you guys brains on stuff and seeing what lil mods I can borrow and hope to share some new ones too

Hey all. Picked up my new '13 Avalanche two weeks ago. I bought it after doing all my research and firming up my thoughts on buying it by looking around on here. Took it on vacation up to Maine two days later. The kids loved it. Wife loved it. And I loved it. Shiny black LT 4wd loaded up pretty nice. I hail from SE Mass and moved from a long line of Chevy C/K's and Silverados onto the Av. Kids had outgrown the extended cabs and I was getting tired of the whole pick-up thing. This new one is just right and it still fits my KTM in the back so I can go play in the dirt...Jim

New Member here.

Hello all, picking up a used 2013 LTZ tomorrow, and couldn't be more excited! I had been driving a 2005 GMC Envoy for three or four years, but found myself borrowing work truck for home projects so often that I started looking at trucks. But, I didn't want to give up the family friendly SUV interior, enter the Avalanche.

I've always been a gearhead and have been pretty GM loyal. But this is my first real truck (not counting a high mile S10 during university). I'll be interested to see what mods are common place on these trucks. Out of the gate, I'm researching CAIs, headers and exhaust, and tuning options. Is it a bad sign that I am already looking at superchargers?

Heya! New here. Had my '07 LT for a while, started to check the forum for answers so thought why not register and hopefully contribute myself some day. I'm originally from the Netherlands but I have lived in the States for the last 2 years (around the SF bay area in CA) and so far I like it a lot, this is a great country! Especially if you're somewhat of a gear head like me. This is my first modern truck, back in Holland my DD was a fully restored '71 GMC Suburban, REALLY wish I could bring it with me but had to sell it so got the Avy instead. And haven't regretted it! What a comfortable and versatile truck it is. Even my gf loves it now, she always thought it was a car for bad rappers  :cool: but we take it for road trips all the time and she likes it better than any other car she ever had!!
Great to see there's such a large community (wasn't this the largest single car forum in the world/US?) so see you on the forums!!

New NorCal member to the board here. My name is William, picked up my new Avalanche back in April, Blue 2013 LTZ.

Its my first truck. Know and/or have known quite a few Avalanche owners and truck owners in general, so had a solid knowledge base to work from when it was time to purchase. Have spent years wrenching on my own cars, mostly early 70's Buick/Oldsmobile musclecars, and always had a parts chaser to do the towing/hauling dirty work. Finally got tired of owning multiple cars to do the work of 1 vehicle, and the Avalanche can do all the hauling/towing I need as well as drive me to work daily in style. Best multipurpose vehicle I could have asked for, and am glad I was able to get one before they were discontinued.

Looking forward to contributing to the board, meeting everyone and learning as much as I can about my new truck.  :D

It means he'd like to get it to 1,000,000 but given that he put 80k in 12 years that is very unlikely to happen...  :laugh:

I just joined the club today. I have a 2011 Taupe Gray Avalanche. I was having problems with a rough idle and saw where other owners in this club were having idle issues as well. The problem was determined to be a bad fuel injector and replaced under warranty. It runs a little better but not as smooth as i would like.

Just traded for a 2013 Sliver Black Diamond Z71
I trade my 2005 Z71 Silverado.

I love it (but)

I am 6-3 and have lots of leg room in the Avalanche  :thumbsup:
I lost storage under my back seat  :(  
My Buddy Bar is to long  :(

MPG seems to be poor (hope it gets better after she breaks in)

LAST

Cant find a fold up truck bed extender for her
How dose one stop cargo from sliding all around (like propane bottles or groceries)?

Hello new member from Florida here. This is my first Avalanche and I just bought it back in June. It's a 2012 LT silver in color with 12k miles. It is one sweet ride. I wanted an AV for a while, but didn't want to get rid of my paid off 99 Z71. Then I found out they were going to stop making the AV's, and the hunt was on for a good used one. Looking forward to using the forum with you guys and gals.

Thanks,
Patrick

Hello~
New member here from Ohio.  Just bought my 2nd Avalanche, I had to upgrade from an LT to an LTZ before they stopped making them!  I hope to own this one for a good long time.  I discovered your site when I was googling some issues with the new Avalanche.  I am looking forward to learning more about the Avalanche through this site!!

My name is Chris, I am new to this site.

I have had the Avalanche since 2002, and in 2010 bought it again brand new. I love the truck and cried a little when i heard they will discontinue the brand.

i am from Toronto Canada, i have done many mods to my truck, from lights to engine work, and even color matching the rear cladding. I am even bringing in the truck to have the cladding around the mirrors color matched.

if anyone from Toronto is looking for good spots to get work done let me know. I have good connections with the best places around.

Hey everyone.  Not a new Avalanche owner...first Avalanche was a black '02, that I had for four years before trading it in on a Dodge Charger R/T.  Charger got totaled in a rear end collision, and I used the insurance money to get back into a truck that I have missed dearly and really regretted trading in.....A nice 2010 LT Z71 in Summit White.  Going to hang on to this truck for a little while, but am really looking forward to trading it in next year on what I really wanted, a 2013 Black Diamond Z71.  Thanks for the add, and looking forward to perusing the forums here.

Somehow I missed this thread, when I joined (guess I was looking too hard).

Proud new Black Diamond LS checking in.  Already completed the installation portion (still need a BCM flash) of the mirror upgrade thanks to the excellent folks on this forum.

Love my AV.  It's like the Cadillac of trucks.  Oh wait, that would be an Escalade EXT.  The Buick of trucks.  Nah, sounds like something a senior would drive.  The Pontiac of trucks?  Nope, unfortunately the killed that brand instead of Buick.  Well, anyway, you know what I mean.   :D

Ok, now you know the sense of humor you're going to have to deal with.

Hi all, I am pleased to say I've finally picked up an Avalanche.  It's a red 2010 with 36,000 miles.

I was driving my 2006 Silverado and was headed south to go to a dealership where they had a couple new trucks I wanted to check out.  I figured I would swing through a couple of the dealerships here in town and the last one was the Toyota dealer. 

Long story short, after trade in, it was only $16,000.  It's got all the options accept leather/heated seats, heated steering wheel and DVD player. It's exactly the way I would have ordered it.

After going through this forum, in my second day of ownership, I cleaned the MAF sensor with CRC cleaner and ran injector cleaner in the tank. I'll be using the "Restore and Refresh" on my sail as well. I have to shp out soon but next summer I'll remove the peeling clear coat from the OEM 20" wheels and polishing them.

So far I'm very pleased with this truck and I'm glad to have found this site.

Hello everyone!

I have looked thru this forum many times in the past and finally decided to join. I'm a proud owner of a 2013 Black Diamond LTZ Avalanche. This is also the 5th Avalanche I have owned. It is unfortunate GM decided to cancel our beloved Avalanche. it is by far the most versatile and functional vehicle on the market.

I'm glad to finally be a part of the club!

Hi everybody.  Just purchased my second Av yesterday a new to me 2010 LS 4x4 Summit White with 22300 miles on it.  Extremely stock, no added options except heavy duty tow package.  1 owner.  He gave me the original sales contract and window sticker so at least I know what he paid and what options (none) it had.  I paid $25k+2K tax for a total of $27K OTD.  I don't think it is the greatest deal ever, but I think it is average with KBB.  First thing I did was throw some E85 in it since it was $3.09 per gallon here in SD (regular unleaded was 3.79).  Not crazy about the color.

I have another Blue 2002 Z71 4x4 Avalanche that I am going to sell to help pay down this one a little.  I like it a lot, and have owned it since 2003 (bought it 1 owner used.)  It currently has 77,000 miles on it.  Figured since end of the line is coming on AV's that it was time to upgrade, and either wanted a low mileage used or a 2013 Black Diamond.  In the end thought I would save the roughly $11,000 difference and went with the used (kids can have Christmas presents this year after all  :4: )

I have looked at this forum a few times over the years, but finally decided to join.  Look forward to all kinds of tips, tricks, and reading.

Hello everyone - got my Avalanche and have been a member for a little bit, but just now getting active with both.  I've got a black 2007 LT 4x4, w/ LT3 Package, and Lt Titanium Leather interior.  I think the only thing not stock on it was an exhaust when I got it.  It's going in the shop this week for a leveling kit, Fuel 'Pump' rims, and Toyo Open Country M/T tires.  More than likely a set of Bushwacker Fender Flares immediately to follow.  Considering a new instrument cluster and aftermarket radio in near future as well.

Anyway, just wanted to say hello - I'll post up some pics once all the work is done!

 :B: :B: :B:  Here's to the best truck in America!!!  :B: :B: :B:

Hi there, new guy here. I recently bought a 2008 LTZ 4X4 with 99k miles and everything but the kitchen sink (and retractable running boards). I was unsure about paying so much for something with as many miles but it was a good deal so I took the leap anyway. As soon as I got home from buying/registering it we loaded it up and went on a road trip. Thanks to the rear seat DVD player my wife decided that from now on anytime we go on a road trip it'll be in the truck, we hardly heard a peep out of the kid for the first 5hr leg of the trip.  :1: Works for me, the last car I had she didn't even want to ride in it to go to the grocery store so to hear that she'd prefer to take long trips in this instead of her got-no-front-seat-leg-room CRV is pretty exciting for me! Anyway, just wanted to introduce myself.

Just got my 07 Z71 about a month ago. What a great vehicle! I thought the Z71 was less common, but now that I have it I see them everywhere! Still the best looking model IMO. Unfortunately it's one of the oil burners - about 1 qt per 1300 miles (at 120k mi), but it was a good enough deal that I'll deal with it.

Hi all, I have been an Avalanche owner since 2007 when i bought my first Avy, a black 07 LT3 that I loved. I discovered this site only within the past few months after buying my 2nd Avy, a 2013 black Black Diamond LT that is even more awesome than my 1st one!!  These trucks truly have the best ride of ANY pickup, and the Bose sound system is KICK A--!!

I discovered this site only within the past few months after buying my 2nd Avy, a 2013 black Black Diamond LT that is even more awesome than my 1st one!!  These trucks truly have the best ride of ANY pickup, and the Bose sound system is KICK A--!!

X2 man.... Had no idea about this site during all the years I had my 05. Only found it when I got my 13(while doing my "research" on it)..... Oh the years of posting that I missed!!!! Hahaha.  :welcome:

Hi all, my name is Rob, I'm from the Netherlands and since about 1 month the proud owner of a 08 Avalanche LTZ.
Used to drive older Suburbans and other US cars. Also own a 1973 Firebird Formula (own that one for about 14 years now).

Fully loaded, inclusive power sidesteps, heated seats, DVD, etc.

New to posting on the forum but been here as a lurker before.

Looking to purchase a 2013 Avalanche but having a hard time locating one in the Rocky Mountain Area. Thought I had one this weekend only to find out this morning that it sold late Saturday night. I've got a dealer here local searching around the clock.

Hopefully this time next week I can list the specs for ya'll.

A little personal Chevy bio for you.
1974 Chevy C20  (454 bored .30 over)
1987 K3500 Crew Cab (5spd, Big Block)
2008 Silverado Z71 1500 Crew
2013 Black Diamond Avalanche LT Z71 (Hopefully by next week)

hi guys and gals!  been lurking for a little while and finally just bought a new-to-me 07 LTZ!  i'm still learning the truck and finding things wrong with it  :E:  hopefully i can fix things myself as they arise, but all the electronics are a little confusing to me.  i have a broken door handle, which i understand to be a pretty common occurrence.  i'll be ordering a dorman replacement for that and fixing myself.  i also have a "service airbag" DIC message.  no idea what to do about that other than have the stealership diagnose and hopefully find the issue and i'll go from there.  i also have the dreaded "service suspension system" DIC warning.  the truck has some "rough country" risers of some sort on the front end and the shocks on the front are mismatched.  i have not heard the compressor in the rear kick on since i've had the truck, although it appears to sit level, but i have not had a chance to add weight to the rear to see if it will level up.  the weird thing is, if i open the hood, and turn the key to the 'on' position, the suspension warning disappears, even after the engine is started, so i'm thoroughly confused on that.   :dunno:  i'm curious what the dealer will charge on average just to tell me what the issues are without fixing anything. i've also read a few places where the dealer will not let you leave with the vehicle in the event of an airbag malfunction.  is this true? i'd appreciate any advice or tips!

glad to be a new member and look forward to learning from you guys!  have a good day!

here's a few pics:

I just bought a 2008 LTZ up here in Anchorage, AK. Was poking around the internet trying to find advice on putting in factory navigation, a backup camera, as well as replacing the onstar vcim so I could get bluetooth capability. Luckily, I found these forums. It's been a major help in getting everything figured out, so i figured I'd pass it forward and post my experience in acquiring all the needed parts and in completing the upcoming installation. I should probably get everything installed sometime after Christmas. I'm looking forward to sharing my experiences with you all!

Greetings all, just purchased my first AE, shes an 08 and wears U928L for a coat. I have seen 3 different names for that color online. Having always been a Ford truck guy this is a big change for me and I am already getting hate mail from some friends...LoL. Looking forward to learning about this great design.

Hello. My name is Paul and own a 07 Avalanche for 3 years now. Does anyone know who or were I can have my LCD screen fixed. Under the gauges that tell me the estimated Milage till empty and the Milage I have on the truck. The side that showed me what gear I am in is faint as well. The dealer wants $500 or more and I just think that is way to much. Please advise. Thank you. :help:

First Avy but have watched them for years.  1st one I drove was an Orange SS a few years back. My neighbor has 2.  As it was time to replace my 2004 Yukon 4x4 it was first choice.  I was surprised to see GM stopping production.  I have had Suburbans too but for our use this works better.  Hauling the bird dogs and boat or travel trailer.

Hey guys. Just posting here to say hello. I just turned 20 last month and have a 2013 LS Black Diamond Avalanche that I picked up in January. Only mods I've done to it are tints & sound system. Looking to level it and add 33 in tires when the stock tires go bad and a couple other things here and there depending on if I have the time and the money haha.

Just got my second Avalanche a 2013 Blue LS.  My first one was a new 2003 Blue Z66.  Traded it in on the 2013.  Really like the fit of the Avalanches.  Being tall most vehicles I do not fit in comfortably.  Enjoyed the reliability of my first one, hoping the second is as reliable as the old one.

Hi guys- Noob here from South Alabama.  Looked around here a few times when I was researching Avalanches as my next possible Vehicle- and now that I bought one- decided to register. 

Got a 07 LT 2wd.  It has the 6-way power seats, leather, woodgrain, but no dvd/nav or sunroof- which I didn't want anyway with my plans.  Bought it specifically with major audio in mind.  But have many other plans as well.  Already tinted the front windows to match the rear.  Lowering and wheels are also in the plan.

Looking forward to digging through the wealth of info here.

Greetings! Names Wally and i just bought a 2010 Silver LTZ yesterday! This truck has been on my mind in the back burner since i first saw the new 07's back in 06! :D But life/work/kids/etc got in the way and 257,000 miles later on my 1998 Tahoe i figured it was time for a newer truck! :D Ive been lurking as a guest on this site on/off for over a year, just reading posts and educating myself on these beasts...i can never leave well enough alone so first planned mod is a leveling kit and some 305 nitto's :D Glad to finally say i own an avalanche and not just dream about one! ;)

Hi everyone,
New to the Fan Club, I just bought an 07 and i love it  Ill try to get a pic up soon.  Unfortunately having a few little issues with it :(.  Got the service stabilitrak, traction control, engine power reduced messages popping up today, just wondering if anyone ever figured out what is causing it? ???  I have read a lot of post on the net, and a variety of theories but no solutions.  I would hate to get rid of it after only having it 6 months

Just joined!  My new to me 2012 LT Z71 will be here next week!  I cant wait to get started with more mods.  Already lifted - 7" Rough country lift. 20" Fuel rims, new Federal MT 35's.  I had hoped for an LTZ but I'm not missing too much am I other than sunroof and wood trim accents?  Mine has Leather/heated seats, rear backup camera.  I will be first looking at a catback exhaust, and a bull bar/grill guard but not sure which yet.  I'm getting a bit ahead of myself i know!

thank you guys for the welcome. I have own my very first avalanche 2013 LTZ for a full 4 days. So far I am satisfied with the ride and profile of this truck, which is black on black with the black diamond badge on it. It is well equipped with 20" factory wheels, running boards and chrome out quite nicely.

Hey guys,

First post.  Just took delivery of a '11 Avalanche LT Z71 4x4.  Coming out of a Honda Ridgeline which was a very functional truck (more so than some realize), but a bit too small.  So far this thing is awesome.  My father-in-law had an '02 and loved it until he sold it last year.  

So the one I picked up is a certified pre-owned through Chevy.  It has 38k miles and appears to be in great shape, interior/exterior is near flawless.  I'm aware of the oil consumption issue so I'll keep an eye on that.  Any other suggested items to do other than drive it and enjoy?  Any recommended upgrades or must do's?  I will at some point replace the Nav because it's terrible but that's not pressing.  

Also, and perhaps a silly question but how do you know when your headlights are on.  There doesn't seem to be an indicator on the dash.  Am I missing something?  

Title: Re: New Members Say Hello & Post Here First

 :welcome:

Don't be surprised to hear a lot of hatred towards the Ridgeline on here...but it's all in good fun  :thumbsup:

Recommended upgrades all depend on your taste & intended use for the truck.  Street, off-road, towing, daily driving?  Lot of people do leveling kits or lowering kits, intake/exhaust and Black Bear Performance tunes.  Otherwise it all depends on personal preference

No clue about the headlights, sorry

Thanks Roody...not looking for upgrades really, this will be my daily driver and honey-do-list truck.  Also my truck to haul my mtn bike and other outdoor gear around.  Better asked is are there suggested maintenance items people have found to be beneficial?  BG treatments, flushes, etc? 

Thanks

Everybody has their "thing," be it seafoam, different fluids, etc.  Most of us have found basic maintenance and routine oil changes go a long way to keeping the truck reliable, nothing crazy

New Owner Here. Just wanted to stop in and introduce myself.  I am Mike, Cleveland, Ohio.  Just bought a Black 2007 LTZ about 2 weeks ago.  Loving the truck so far, aside from the nightmare of a first day I had with it.

To sum things up:
I traded in my "baby", a 2006 Monte Carlo SS.  Had to make room for my 18 month old daughter. Only vehicle I would trade in for was an Av. 2 of my "dream cars"...
Finally found what I wanted so my wife and I bought my truck on 1/30,
Dealership decided to "power wash" it after purchase in -10 degree weather
Tailgate locked up and would not close
Scheduled to have them service on 1/31
Morning of 1/31 the truck did not start!
Called every towing company around because I couldn't even jump start it
Due to weather conditions i was put on a list for a tow
Got loaner car from dealer
Morning of 2/1 the truck fired right up
Drove truck in for service
Dealership dug out a block of ice inside the tailgate, THANKS FOR THE POWER WASH!  :E:
Found nothing from with battery, alternator, starter....
Truck has been a gem since....

Anyways, hope to learn some things here and get to know some of you guys.  Just at first glance it seems a lot of you are very resourceful.  Glad to be apart of the forum!

Mike

Hello all!
Just bought my first AV yesterday!  Have not even picked it up yet.  Its a 2007 LT with 82,000 miles.  I converted over from owning a Ram 1500 for 10 years!!  New and used pickups were too much $$ and after thinking about it, the AV fit my needs better than a pickup, nowadays.

Anyways, I am an avid DIY'er and hope to be a contributing member here.  I'm no mechanic, but I try to do as much as I can, like many here I suppose.

I will have lots of questions since I am a new Chevy guy.  Go easy on me....where do I start?  I know that my AV did NOT come with the bed mat...it is missing for some reason.  Any help on where to get a rubber one?  Or even stock one?  of course...cheap $$ but still useful.  I fully understand that you get what you pay for.

Hello Everyone,

I just joined the team, I've actually owned my 2007 Chevy Avalanche since it was new and always wanted to join a club but just didn't have the time, But now I do and have enjoyed my truck and love it still. I have done a lot of things to my truck from exterior accessories(lots of chrome(chrome handles, pillars, front grille, tail lights and headlight surrounds) HID lights, underground led lighting, performance(flowmaster exhaust, Volant intake, Hypertech Programmer, Poweraid Throttle Body Spacer, Tornado(supposedly increase MPG, I got it because it gives my truck a hissing sound almost like a supercharger in quiet mode). I have two sets of wheels for my truck I have color accent matched painted 26" wheels for show, and when I travel or want to go off road I put on my 22" wheels both are great wheels.

Something I've been planning on doing is adding a  Edelbrock Supercharger or a Turbocharger BY STS turbo, I haven't decided on which one to go with.

Hi y'all! New member here. My name's Ken.

I have had two previous Avys... A black 2005 LS, and a Diamond White Tricoat 2011 LTZ. Why I sold either one of them, I still don't understand.

I traded the '11 LTZ on a fairly barebones '11 RAM 1500 quad cab 4x4 about a year and a half ago to get out from under the huge Avy payments. The RAM was OK, but I knew it would be an interim vehicle.

I'm an ORANGE guy - I own a 2012 Harley CVO Street Glide in "Hot Citrus"... which is about as orange as you get. I have been looking for an Inferno Orange LTZ, preferably 4x4, for quite awhile now. They are quite hard to find... I guess there were not too many made, and the crazies like me who have them apparently keep them.

Anyway, on Tuesday I found an absolutely MINT 2009 LTZ 4x4 in Inferno Orange at a local dealer for several thousand under the KBB value... so I bought it, and I'm now once again a proud Avy owner! This thing looks absolutely brand new... not even any noticeable wear on the leather seats, clean as a whistle, and not a scratch anywhere, inside or out. I got lucky finding this one!

I'm keeping my new orange baby FOREVER this time!

Anyway, I'm happy to have found this forum, and here are a couple of pics of "Crusher"...

Got my 2013 avalanche march,2013 new after selling my 2 other vehicles on craigslist within 1 wk of posting. My ltz model is pearl white with all options with chrome wheels. I added the chrome bug deflector and pearl white mud flaps. Its my first avalanche and love it but for the gas mileage. I did take it to Connecticut,  getting 22mpg going the speed limit. I will put a picture with my name if you guys tell me how.

Hello everyone.  Calling in from Saskatchewan, Canada.  Purchased a 2007 LT two weeks ago, and I love this thing!  Olympic white, RWD, 130000kms and in excellent condition.  It came with a full spare set of chrome wheels wrapped in Goodyear rubber.  It definitely has an aftermarket exhaust (sweet rumble) and I suspect it may be chipped, as it has a lot more punch than the newer 5.3 in the Sierra.  I get compliments and comments on it frequently.  I own a 2011 Sierra crew cab, and the ride quality of the Avalanche is much better.  I am having a hard time keeping my wife away from it.  The only things I have done to it so far, are a full set of winter rubber mats (still having miserable weather here), and just put a bug/rock deflector on today.  I can't wait for the weather to warm up so I can start detailing her.

Howdy from Calgary, Alberta!

I was in need of a "truck", and a friend advised me to look at an Avalanche, as it would balance my needs with my wants. As you folks already have known for some time, I become a believer right away. From the introduction to the pros of the Avalanche, and the research on the CAFCNA club forum, I had to then decide on a budget, and then whether it would be a 2002-06 series, or the new 07+ series. Let's just say that an '08 Z71 came my way that I couldn't refuse.

I'm just getting used to her, and it's good to be back in a truck again after 5 years without one.

Thanks for having this site guys, and I'll get a sig and photos up soon.

Cheers,

Stretch

Sound off from Kingman Az. I just bought a 03 Av. I have loved the Avalanche ever since I seen the first one back in 01. It took until now before I could actually afford one.  :E:   Anyway, Im so happy with it. Hoping to meet some other Av owners to talk about the coolest truck ever made. imho

I been lurking a while, finally pulled the trigger an bought a 2010 ltz in pearl. I've had it a week and have had bad luck. Some lady didn't signal and took out passengers side oft truck. I lent the truck to my wife and she took out the drivers mirror. To add salt I didn't notice till the other day that there is hail damage on the roof. Anyhow. Looking for a drivers mirror and think I have 8 more posts till the rest of the forum is open to me.

Hello all!!!  I am a proud new owner of an 07 Avy LTZ.  I actually go pick it up today.  I have been hiding in the shadows for about 6 months now, looking up certain topics and seeing what some of the problem areas are on this vehicle.  I have to say, I am glad to see that there is such a huge network of individuals here all seemingly working together to make owning the Avy/Esc just that much easier.  Although there is a HUGE plethora of info in this forum and can be a bit daunting when you see a new thread and realize its 108 pages long..lol, it feels good to know that by the time I completed reading it, the vast majority of my questions have been answered. I look forward to interacting with you all as we enjoy our shared interest in this vehicle together.  Don't know if I can post pics right away, but when I get home with it, I will snap a few and post them.  Good day to you all!!! :thumbsup:

Hi All,

I've asked a few questions on the buyer's forum and finally found a deal I couldn't refuse:

2008 Z71 LT3 (I think).  Black with 100K miles  Loving it so far, and got an awesome deal!!!  Just picked it up last night!

I'm glad to see there's such great support network!

Hello!

Just bought my Avi on Friday.  2008, 151K, very clean and well cared for as far as I can tell.  Planning to use it for around town and as a vacation tow vehicle for two motorcycles on a trailer.  I love this vehicle and am very excited to own one.  This is my first truck.

Tragically, it's already waiting to go into the shop  :E: with the dreaded Reduced Power/Stabilitrack off/service stabilitrack message (followed by engine shut-off).  The previous owner had it for a year and drove it 3,000 miles.  Said he didn't have any trouble.  I believe him.  Mechanic read the codes for me but didn't tell me what they were  ???  I've been madly researching this forum and youtube and have a strategy, though.

I'm going to limp it to the Autozone this morning and get them to tell me what the codes are so I can really research.  I'm also going to clean the MAF and the air filter, check the battery connections, vacuum hoses, and wires.  I'm going to put off the throttle body cleaning until it's back in my garage.  It's going to get a full fluid change (oil will be mobil 1) and tune up on Monday from my mechanic.  I'm not doing the first one myself.  Scan tool and Chilton manual are on order from Amazon.  I can use the scan tool for my other vehicles too, so it seems like a good investment.  I've done maintenance on my bikes and on a couple of past vehicles, but essentially know nothing of importance and fumble my way through it.  I plan on relying heavily on my compadres in this forum going forward.

I'm also planning to change the spark plug wires, serpentine belt, and possibly the ignition switch as preventative measures.  I'm mentally preparing myself to replace the fuel pump, the evap vent solenoid, and the vapor canister.  I've found the threads on 100K and 150K preventative maintenance.

Hopefully my profile and signature updates are correct.   :P

Thanks in advance for all the help in keeping this Avi running!

Hey All, I am hopefully a future AV owner. I had a 2011 LTZ in White Diamond, but had to sell it. I am looking for another now. If anyone has any leads on low mileage LTZs for sale, send the info or contact me. Looking for either a black or white diamond.

I will also be looking to get a Snugtop in the near future. i know they are pricey, but maybe we can get a group discount through a group buy or something.

Welcome to the site, nice AV. Hope you have many happy and safe miles. Instead of thinking of a 6.0 you could look at putting a Magnacharger supercharger on your AV.
Title: Re: New Members Say Hello & Post Here First
Post by: JohnnieMo on 04/29/14 02:59 PM
Nice truck.

Regarding the auto-ride, we all deal with the "leaky" problems after about the 6 year mark.  There is a terrific resource on this site dedicated to the auto-ride system.  Read every page of it and you'll learn an incredible amount.  It's the best thread on this website in my opinion.

http://chevyavalanchefanclub.com/cafcna/index.php/topic,131766.0.html

Welcome!  

ps - I added the supercharger and my truck can tow with a 2015 6.2L Silverado now (I tested it)

Hello All,

My name is Dan, currently a junior at the University of Arkansas. I picked up an 07 white Avalanche LT equipped with 4X4, beige leather, and sunroof with about 115,000 in early January 2012. Looked for a truck for about 6 months but heavily debated what would be best for what I need. Long story short, Avalanche sold me on the lockable/ water tight bed, storage boxes on the sides, and the cushy ride. Over Christmas Break my freshman year found my Avalanche up in Iowa for a steal with all of the things I wanted, so made the drive from Kansas City and bought it sight on scene. Long time looker on the forum but decided I should get involved now that I have a few mods and miles on the truck. So far been loving the Avy and all of its capabilities.
-Mods so far include: the Ready Lift 2.25/1.5, 20" Black Rhino Sidewinders, 275/60/20 Cooper Zeon LTZ, 20% tint on front windows and 20% bra on front, Magna Flow 40 series w/ single stainless steel tip out passenger size (removed resonator), NFab light bar with 4 Hella Black Majic lights.
-Once I figure out how to post pics and meet minimum post requirements will try and post up some pics and maybe do a build thread.
- Future mods I have in mind but still researching/getting ideas: RC 3.5 lift or maybe 5" (do not want to have to regear for 35s), Hids (6K) (debating stock housing vs projector), darker window tint on back windows.

Looking forward to adding my input and experiences to this forum. Coming from other forums, can tell this has some involved folks on it.
- Dan

That thread is great I just went though the entire 18 pages and step one this weekend will be getting the soapy water spray bottle out to see where air is leaking from. 

Ahhh... you're one of the good ones.  :thumbsup:

As you saw in the most recent posts (by ArizonaDave) the rear shocks can handle some serious weight when everything is working properly.

Thanks... Glad to be a new member!
Basically traded a 2012 LTZ for a 2007 LTZ to simply get rid of the payments.
Very little different in the two.. The 07 was very well maintained and I've added a few mods to make me smile.
-Converted the On-Star to Bluetooth
-Black Polished Wheels
-Bully Black Tailpipe Tip
-Black Chevy Bowties

Pics to come soon...

Hey, just bought a used Champagne 2008 Avalanche LT!  It has about 83k miles on it.  Guy before me put a Pioneer AVIC-D3 in it which is pretty cool, even though I had to fix all the wire connections.. love this thing so far! It's my first truck, and first 4x4, so I can't wait to find a good beach to take it on. Unfortunately, there are none (legal) near where I live, in Chesapeake,  VA.  I'm looking for a decent and reliable rear view camera to put on as my next project.   Then, I would love to figure out why my speakers have no bass.  My buddy has a completely stock Silverado LS and his sound is awesome.  Hmmmm... Anyone else from my area?  Would love to hear about some quirks and tricks for my Av!  I plan on being very active on here!

I've been driving an 02 base 4x4 for about 7 years, she's coming up on 94,000 miles, so I thought I needed to upgrade to something newer. I picked up a 2010 Z-71 with 40K, problem is I'm not sure if I like the 2010 more than than the 2002!
Decisions, decisions....open to recommendations, (unfortunately, keeping them both is not an option according to "you know who"!)

Hi everyone,  got my av before winter and have loved it so far (except the rust starting to peak through.) I do all my own work and maintenence so I'm sure I'll have questions. Thanks in advance

Hey everybody my name is Jared and I have a problem, ha ha. 

Well I don't have an Avy yet and have never had one but will be looking for one in the next few months here.  I got on here to do some research and just get general info before making a purchase. 

I plan to make this a somewhat daily driver but will also make it my weekend getaway vehicle.  I like to Kiteboard, camp, mountain bike, and just explore in general and I thought the Avy would be great for all of these.  I want to lift it immediately though and put 35's on it or close to it at least.  Other than that I'll probably add some mounts for nikes on the top of the bed cover.  maybe add to the stereo but I'm not an audiophile so its usually not top priority.  I'll be on a budget also for the vehicle itself since this will not be the only vehicle I'm in the market for also.  So I'm looking to spend no more than $20k on the truck itself.

Anyway, long first post but figured I'd give some info in case anyone wants to point me in the direction I need to go as far as good threads to read for info and whatnot.

Wife and I got our first Avalanche two weeks ago. The wife loves this truck, myself I like how it brought out the redneck in her. She now wants to go fishing and camping. Installed the brush guard for her last night, getting a Flowmaster Super 40 installed Tuesday.


Edit: Forgot to say it's a 07 LT

New member as of today. Have been a F150 owner for years and decided to go Avy. So glad I did. It rides so much more comfortable than Ford. I was lucky enough to find a decent priced 2011 LT with only 13,400 miles. It still smells new............well, almost.

Hello.

Just bought my first Avalanche.  It's a 2010 LTZ in black.  I love it so far.  The ride is so smooth compared to my 2007 Silverado.  I bought it with the infamous cracked dash (I had no idea this was a common problem until after I bought it, and started doing research on this site).  I am enjoying reading through the forums and learning about these awesome trucks.

Hi all!

Finally managed to get an account here, after a few tries.

I bought a 2007 LTZ, White, 107 000km, no rust, good condition (except the tires), back in May. Really love that truck!

Love to be part of the Avalanche world!

Just picked up my "new" 07 Avalanche LTZ.  Never have been a Chevy fan, but I drove my dad's last weekend and fell in love. 

This thing is fully loaded and only has 20K miles on it.  Couldn't believe it.  I am loving this thing more everyday and finding new things to love about it all the time.

And above all I purchsed it about $2k below kelly bb  from a 90 year old fellow who kept it in the garage when not driven. I love how it drives and sounds while driving around TN.

Hi all. New guy here from northeast Washington.
I just got rid of a 2006 Infiniti G35 coupe to get my 2007 AV EXT

Love this damn thing. I was actually looking for a GMC Sierra or Silverado when a salesman showed me the AV. I always thought they were gay until I learned they had a midgate!!! OMG these things are awesome!!!!
First weekend I had it me and the wife went to Montana to do some white water rafting. What a comfy ride and it was awesome to be able to drop the midgate and sleep on the way over. I had worked a long night the day before.

Instead of a hotel or campground, we parked it on a back road, dropped the midgate, and rolled out the REI Campbed 3.5 sleeping pads and Big Agnes Cabin Creek two person sleeping bag and had a good nights sleep right there in the truck!!!
Can't wait for hunting season to start cuz I'm one of those guys who travels out of town for 4-5 days at a time and hunts different locations based on how the hunting goes. Gonna be nice to just sleep where I park. Hopefully my bed covers don't leak too much!

Anyhow....planned mods in order are pretty basic. Not going to lift it much. Been reading nonstop here since I got it.
Plans: leveling kit with body lift to get some 33's under it. Intake & exhaust, tuner, new headlight assemblies, bug guard on the hood, and that's about it.
Oh and I'll probably remove the rear seats so I can put a 12" JL w3 in it and still use the midgate. No need for rear passengers other than a large dog in a crate. Figure I'll just build a big false floor down low that has the sub box under it with plenty of space on top to place the kennel till the dog isn't a puppy any more and can be trusted.
Oh and the local car audio place quoted me $279 to add window roll up on lock modules to my factory remote start alarm.
Anyhow, talk to ya later!!!

 Hello to all. New in town. Just picked up an '09 a a week ago and so far I'm diggin' it.

Came from a Jeep Rubicon of 4 years, to a Hummer H3 of 3 years, now to the new-to-me Avalanche. It has been on the list for quite a while now. Looks like I'm feeling the need to become more refined with each passing vehicle.  :thumbsup:

Seems to be a wealth of info here without some of the BS you encounter on a few of the enthusiast sites. Hope to stick around for awhile.

Bought my '07 Sunburst orange 3LT with 67k miles 2 weeks ago. Dealer wouldn't budge much on the price even after i walked but i got them to put new belts on the truck, new goodyear tires, oil change, detail and trans fluid change as well. Since then i've done LED's in the backups, domes, puddle lamps and added 3 white LED's under each side of the dash as well as 2 in the center console so i can see inside at night. Also had two 18" LED strips that i had laying around. Mounted them under the lip of the box on each side and tapped them into the stock box light so they work like the stock light does. I also did the full time DRL's and switched to amber as well as the fog light mod so they stay on all time. Did a stock roof rack last week, blacked bowties front and back, plasti-dipped the wood dash stuff. The truck originally had 17's on it and the previous owner put the stock 20's on which i liked but them being black i'm not a huge fan of but they are growing on me.  The stereo i added my Kenwood 6190hd DVD/NAV/HD Radio/SiriusXM(backup cam as well) and a Alpine amp with a 10 Kicker CVT under the back seat. Alot of stuff in 2 weeks but the radio stuff i had laying around from taking it out of my last truck and the LED's i had from previous projects. So here are some pics :D

First post, love the looks of the truck, wait let me tell you what I got. Purchased a new to me 2011 sliver LTZ 28,400 miles very clean truck. Had the truck one week then I got a stabliatrack/ traction control warning and a check engine light along with a rough shift into second and a rough idle. Came to the web and started reading horror stories. It is 23 days past the bumper to bumper. I bought it from a non gm dealer so I am worried to say the least.
I am going to have a buddy run the codes tomorrow and talk to the dealer I bought it from. I want a gm dealer to do the repairs.mthanks for all the help. I was hoping that the afm issues were fixed but not sure. I had a lot more confidence in a tahoe with 210000 miles than a truck will 28000. Not even a tank of gas through it sucky :needhug:

Just bought our first Avi last Saturday. Though, we've (wife and I) been shopping for one since July, also been reading this forum since then too.

Before anyone asks why the heck we'd by a vehicle that we've never owned and that is no longer in production. One that I had never heard of, until the wife said, "Let's try that one" on a test drive.

Well, I'm 6'4" and just under 400 LBS, and extremely claustrophobic. So everything we were looking at I either couldn't fit in or the windshield was so close to my face that it triggered a panic attack. Then we got in an Avi, it was like it was built just for me, but surely it couldn't be "perfect", to all the demands I had.

* High enough that my night blindness wouldn't be an issue with on coming head lights? Check!
* 5 star front impact rating? Check! (even more it's a 5 star side impact rating too!)
* Enough room in back for my kids/grand kids to sit behind me, comfortably? Check!
* Wife like it? Check! (she's put more miles on it than I have already and she hates driving "big" vehicles!)
* Large aftermarket (read as used parts)? Check!

Then came the ultimate test. Every car I've owned that I loved, a name for her has popped into my head the first month of owning them. Strangely the cars I ended up not liking, this never happened. Well within he first 24 hours, my Avi revealed her name as "Sophia". CHECK! Ok, ok put the straight jacket away, am I sane, I swear I am! :D

Anyway, just wanted to decloak from lurker status and say "Hi!"

Hello,
 Earlier this year I purchased an Avalanche for my wife, looked for a long time to find one that I know she would love. She absolutely loves it!
 So far it has been a very pleasurable experience.

Hello....I just purchased my 2007 Chevy Avalanche 2LT 4wd.  This forum was very informative and aided me greatly in picking the right avy.  I was lucky to purchased a used 1 owner with no mechanical or cosmetic issues....117K miles...

Hi All, new member here, been lurking for over a year when I decided I wanted an Avalanche.  I bought one a year ago and just love it.  I have a 2002 1500 4x4 WBH in blue with 75K on her now.  I am a self employed kitchen and bath design and remodeling contractor and have a work van that gets most of my miles.  The main reason for purchasing this was to be our tow vehicle for our 22" travel trailer, and main road trip vehicle.  We just love the versatility of it.  Even before I bought the truck I had an idea of what I wanted it to look like after mods (thanks to this site).  So that time has come, see my post here:
http://chevyavalanchefanclub.com/cafcna/index.php/topic,145346.msg2093272.html#msg2093272 (http://chevyavalanchefanclub.com/cafcna/index.php/topic,145346.msg2093272.html#msg2093272)

I spend most of my free time buying, flipping, riding, and building motorcycles.  I am currently building a custom Harley bagger and restoring a '74 Honda CB360.  But I need new tires so time to start the preliminary work on the Avy, with more to come after the Harley rolls out of the garage in the spring.

Hello, great forum! Picked up an '07 Z71 LT. Should have got one a long time ago, I've owned a lot of different 1/2 and 3/4 ton pickups, and had no idea Avalanches ride so fantastic! Had it two weeks, and had to bring it in with Service Engine, Service Traction Control & Service Stabilitrac alarms. According to dealer was the alcohol content computer "issue". Had it back a few days and it seems to be working fine... other than the backup assist... Cheers! :thumbsup:

Hey all! New member, I have a 07 Avalanche, Z71 4x4. I've had it since I got my license in 2010. Since then, I've made several modifications, 10" subs with custom box under back seat, navi system, new Fiber Optic LED tail lights, new 20" Helo wheels with 33" Nitto Terra Grapplers, couple Rigid Industries lights, and a Flowmaster Super 10. Just a little about my truck!

Hello!

So.... being that I have been raised on Fords and have owned 4 Fords, it is to be with out saying that I was an avid Chevy hater until here recently. I was looking for a pick up, and I was sold on an F-150 or a Dodge, but for some reason this Chevy Avalanche kept catching my eye. So I finally gave in, and test drove one, and began to like it. Test drove another one, liked it more. Test drove another one, wanted to buy one, so I did!

If someone would have ever told me I would own a Chevy, I would have called them a liar and laughed :laugh:....so I have come to say>>>



HI...I am a PROUD owner of a 2007 Chevy Avalanche. I will lurking around here, and hopefully I can learn some cool things about my truck!

Long time Chevy fan. Love, 57s, old small blocks, and all corvettes (except c4), to name my favorites.  Don't own an Avalanche YET. Just re-entering the truck market. As I started researching and shopping,  I have decided the Avalanche is my target.  Loved my sport trac a few years ago. (easy Ford-haters, it was a great mid size truck/SUT.)  The avalanche has even more features and more space.  I am researching them so much before I purchase one, I thought the forum would be a good place to learn about em from people that actually drive one.

Looking forward to the group.

Hey guys.. I'm new here. I bought a new Avalanche, black, with all available options, 4WD LTZ in August of 2006.. I still have it, it has 52,000 miles on it  I was disappointed to learn that production would be suspended with the introduction of the new Suburban.

I hope GM reconsiders that decision.

This isn't mine, but it appears roughly similar to mine.  I'll post a photo when I get a chance to take one.

I've been a member here since 2002 but just recently aquired our third white avalanche so I'm back for a bit of education.We had to buy the third avalanche because with them being discontinued we need to get one with low miles on it now so it would be here when one of the others crapped out.
We were going to sell the 2003 with 190k miles but decided to keep it as a beater and keep the miles off of the newest 2011 ltz...so the 2011 will sit in the garage and accumulate some 3.73's and a front locker and maybe some sliders.
We also have a 2004 8.1L with 50k miles.

I'll probably not comment much but I need to know about led lights and hacks and such.

Hi all, Like to wish you all a Happy New Year. I just bought myself a used Chevy Avalanche for Christmas and need some helpful tips. First off does anyone have an owners manual for an 08 LT 4x4, a plastic cup holder for the console and know how to fix a side mirror turn signal indicator.
Thanks for looking.

Happy New Year all, I just bought an 08 LT 4x4 and I'm starting my project of re habilitating it. It has been seriously neglected and cared for and also smoked in.
I hope to meet and cruise with some drivers in the area. Please see below for some of the repairs I'm looking into at the moment. Thanks in advance.

Hi all, Like to wish you all a Happy New Year. I just bought myself a used Chevy Avalanche for Christmas and need some helpful tips. First off does anyone have an owners manual for an 08 LT 4x4, a plastic cup holder for the console and know how to fix a side mirror turn signal indicator.
Thanks for looking.
:welcome: to the club and happy New year.
If you go to the home page and scroll down to the for sale section,they should have parts that can help if not members sometimes put in links and or info on where to get them.
Are you referring to the puddle lamps that are in the mirrors under the housing?

No they don't work at all, #7. Trying to get the turn signal led on the right mirror to work.    4 of the leds light up but not the middle ones and they seem to be not lined up with the lenses, and are really dim. The left one works great...blinding.
Thanks for the reply.

Hello, My name is Sam and I am looking to buy a 2011 Avalanche or newer. I need some pointers on what type of tires and what type of lift kits to put onto my avalanche once I buy one. I will be buying one in the next few months once I find the right one.

Hello from backwoods WV.  I recently aquired a 2007 Chevrolet Avalanche that I really enjoy.  I love that it drives like a Cadillac and is insanely comfortable.  I have my issues with it but for the most part I'm super pumped to be a member of this club.

What's up Fellow Avy owners. First time Caller, First time Owner. First time Poster: Traded in my 2013 GMC sierra, bought a 2015 GMC Sierra for 19 hours, took it back and traded for a 2007 LT Avalanche 80K. Let me just start by saying thank you to the forum. I have read a lot about my Avy. Never entertained the idea of driving one, until I drove one. Ride is awesome! Love the Room and the inside is Immaculate. I purchased from a dealership. Had 3 AM stations programmed in and 3 Oldies station & one Old Owner I presume. The memory seat on #2 setting damn near crushed me with the little old lady that had it prior setting for her obviously. The Inside and the Mirrors remind me of the 2005 Denali I had. I have purchased the Ambers as recommended, waiting to receive Xeon lights. put those on with Ambers. I was looking online, looks like the 07' you have to take the whole front off to access??? not sure yet i have not tackeled this project. And putting on the AVS in channel Rain guards Vent visors this weekend. Also changing out my interior lights with the Jtech Super Bright White Led's I received yesterday. Yes Thank you all for the recommendations on how to $pend my money. I purchased this on December 23. Went shopping on the 24th, Walked out to my avy on the 25th and it looked like someone got into a fight down the back side of it. Needless to say 1381.00 damage, I Pick it up again today. Airbrushed the scratches so I'm curious as to how well it blended. As for the couple of dings. They said body shop would have to take care of them. So will see how bad it looks, and how well they blended the paint. Really didn't want to have to turn it in. Other than that this avy inside and out, even the engine was IMMACULATE! I have owned a lot of vehichles, but I must say the ride on this Avy is AMAZING! The only thing I'm really missing from my 13' Sierra was my Remote Link App and My Bluetooth. And Yes I own a Flexsmart FM transmitter so I have made do. But the App to start the Vehicle was nice here in Indiana. So far Tinted the Windows, added Brow. Aftermarket Exhaust Tip, BTW It's the Gold Mist. Which I have NEVER owned a Gold Vehichle... It's growing on me! In my Quickness to get out from under the 2015 I purchased. Literally the seats were smaller, stiff. Looks like a TOYO! And there was more that I didn't like then what I did like! I wasn't going to be happy keeping that! I wasn't thinking what the towing capacity was on the Avy. I may be in trouble, I believe my 35' is 7500lb. I Just may be ass out on hauling with the Avy. Regardless I love this Vehicle! And Look forward to reading and asking more quesitions. (This May be the longest post by a newbie thus far!)

Welcome!

So you didn't like the seats and look of the 2015 Sierra? Just wondering what else led you to trade it? My newly purchased 08 is also gold mist, mine's an LTZ.

Hello everyone.  I've lurked around for a bit, and figured I should join.  I've owned my 2010 Avalanche for almost three months now, and I love it.  I've changed the tune a little bit, and intended to make more changes this spring.
Here are a few pictures I took the day I picked it up from the dealership.(http://i86.photobucket.com/albums/k102/littlemissGTO/IMG_2833_zps0412ef22.jpg) (http://s86.photobucket.com/user/littlemissGTO/media/IMG_2833_zps0412ef22.jpg.html)(http://i86.photobucket.com/albums/k102/littlemissGTO/IMG_2832_zps52e090e3.jpg) (http://s86.photobucket.com/user/littlemissGTO/media/IMG_2832_zps52e090e3.jpg.html)(http://i86.photobucket.com/albums/k102/littlemissGTO/IMG_2831_zps1b029375.jpg) (http://s86.photobucket.com/user/littlemissGTO/media/IMG_2831_zps1b029375.jpg.html)

Well howdy everyone! Just thought I would drop in here and say hello. Finally moving back into an Avalanche after almost a year long break. I was supposed to pickup my 2007 LTZ, but after driving 2 hours to get the truck the seller couldn't find his title!  :E: :E:

So, now I'm waiting for that. I'll post up a few pictures when I get a hold of it. Had my 2003 Avy Z71 for about 4 years, made the mistake of trying out a smaller truck (Tacoma) and hated every minute of it! Glad to be moving up!

Oh, name is Chad and I'm in Southwest Missouri!

Hey gang,
Just picked up a 2010 LTZ yesterday - 75k miles. Looking forward to adding performance modifications after the warranty runs out. So far the only complaint I have is that one of the key fobs is dead.  Calling the dealer on Monday to get that resolved. Any suggestions as to what I should be aware of for potential mechanical problems?

Hi All,

I picked up a 2011 LT earlier this week.  I learned so much on this site during the buying process, so I just want to say thanks!

You can post pics as soon as you have the magic number of posts.
In the meantime, you can use photo places like photobucket, etc

If you want to post your mods in your signature, you can find that under your forum profile.

Post by: Blackbird 6.0 LTZ on 04/22/15 08:11 AM
Hi All, I'm a little late to the new member post, I've posted in a few other posts first. I'm up in Northern Maine.

Here's what I wrote in the "What'd you pay for your Avalanche?" thread about how I got my Av-

"I had a 2006 Hummer H3 Adventure with the 5 speed which I used for a lot of hunting, fishing, rafting and winter sports adventures up here in Maine. Loved the thing, but my only complaints were 1) a driver, his black lab, luggage, gear for whatever particular sport was in season and a cooler of beer filled the truck up 75%. Add a passenger and all of their gear and it was cramped quarters. 2) Even with the 5 speed and the inline-5, when you have a 4.56 rear, you will only get 18mpg on the highway MAX with 10 ply tires. 3) While I never had an issue with my engine, I think it secretly always wished it was a 4 cylinder turbo diesel. Probably would have saved the brand, too.

Anyway, about a year ago a good friend of my dad's came with him to Maine to do some ice fishing and he was driving a brand new LTZ Black Diamond. I told him I thought it was a sweet rig and he remarked: "Then you should come buy his older brother!". He still had his 2007 LTZ sitting in his driveway in Pennsylvania that he needed to keep through 2013 for tax reasons, but didn't want to miss the Avalanche boat before they were gone. I'd been contemplating the Hummer's replacement for while, and was looking at Suburbans because they have a V8 but would return the same if not better mileage than the hummer, I could still throw the dog in the back, and you could sleep in them. Hadn't even considered the Avalanche, but the only real difference is I'd have to build a box for the dog in the back seat opposed to letting him in the rear hatch. Can still fold the mid-gate down and sleep in it. Anyway, sealing the deal was the fact that the Av had the 6.0 Liter, which still returns better mileage than my 5 cylinder Hummer. Have sacrificed some of the places I can take it, and 10 ply tires, but I love the Av. Have seen the friend I bought it from since, and he's said he wants the 6.0 Liter back. 2007 Avalanche LTZ 4WD, 6.0, 134,000- $14,750 in March 2014"

To prevent/stop plug fouling, stuck rings, and excessive oil burning. Several good discussion threads on this issue.

Ok I jest bought my 07 ltz yesterday , tell me why should the AFM be disabled ?


Very simple !! So you dont end up having to rebuild your whole engine like I did !!

Do yourself a favor and kill the AFM !!!

Hello everyone!  I am finally an Avalanche owner again!  I started with buying a very expensive loaded 2010 Z71 a few years back.  Bought a new house, and had to sell it  :(  Then I bought a 2003 black Z66, but it was always costing me something in repairs.  I got away for half a year with a z71 Silverado....It just wasn't the same!  I'm finally back to having an Avalanche. A 2007 Bermuda Blue LT!  I couldn't be happier!

Hello! Just bought an 07 white Avalanche LT (was very close to getting the LTZ, but it was just a little too much). Love it. Within the week I've had it, I've tinted the back windows 5% and the front 15% with a windshield strip, debadged and took the door moldings off, plastidipped the bowties white, blacked out the taillights and am going to plastidip the 22 inch wheels a white gloss. Can't wait to get it all done and show you guys.

Whats up! I just bought my 07 Avalanche LT last month. Its silver with black leather and a sunroof. Tow Package, 20" Rockstar Xd's with Dune Grapplers (wich are about to go bye bye), Its got upgraded h4 headlights, k&n air intake a 2in lift and a trailer brake controller. Now for the issues, it drinks oil like its free, its got low oil presure at idle once warmed up, it smokes (like a cannon went off) on cold start after highway driving, the fuel sending unit went out so im using the dic for my gas gauge and the nav has no idea where it is rendering it useless. Its my first GM vehicle and its definiatly been an interesting month. I love the truck, drives great and super comfortable. It also tows my jeep rock crawler well. Ive been reading alot of articles on here about the afm and have my Range technoligies AFM Disabler ariving any day now wich im hoping will help with my oil consumption and maybe the smoke as well. Im going to change a few parts when I do my oil in 500 miles wich I was instructed by a gm tech, the oil pump screen as well as an o-ring that apparently fits in a square hole and wears out. Im also planning to flush the engine with seafoam and change the fuel pump to get my gauge working again. I think you may be hearing alot of questions from me although there have been plenty of great threads Ive read on here already. Aside from fixes It definiatly has rear airbags in its imediate future for towing heavy loads.

Hello all!  New guy from Oklahoma.  I'm driving a 2007 Avalanche LTZ that I bought from my parents.  Dad bought the truck new in 2007 but due to an unfortunate stroke cannot drive it any more.  I bought it from my Mom to help her out & keep the truck in the family.  I must admit that I wasn't really that interested in the truck initially but it's grown on me!  There are a few issues that need to be addressed and I'll get to those in later posts.  For now, I've tackled replacing the rear air ride shocks (BWI 580-451 I think) and the compressor (Dorman unit) with the help of a very thorough discussion on the subject of the LTZ suspension.  I REALLY appreciate your help with that!
Enough rambling.  Thank you for a great site and I'll start asking questions soon.

Hi guys, my name is Bill, and I've been an Avyholic for about 8 years.  :D  My first was a 2004 Z71, which I traded last month for a 2008 LTZ. I live in Tennessee and spend a lot of time outdoors biking and kayaking, so the Avalanche is a great platform for those activities. I have lurked on this site for awhile but just recently joined. Thanks for providing such a great resource!

Here are some pics:

Whats Happening. Name is Zabel, I live in Washington State. Picked up my Black 2007 Avalanche LT around a month ago. Its been great so far, drives like a dream compared to my old sport compact. I dont feel any bumps in my back the way I used too.

Dont have a lot planned other than Tint & remote start, a leveling kit, and some new tires (when the current ones wear down).

Here are a few pics of the ride. Thanks for reading, look forward to learning more about this big ol piece of Chevy.

Hello everyone,

Throughout the years I've owned two of the three body styles that the Avalanche had. I had an 02' then skipped the second generation then bought an 07' when they surfaced (that one was very close to being a lemon) then I traded in on a 10' when it came out.

Now I don't have an Avalanche anymore and was heart broken when they decided to discontinue it. For fear of owning a discontinued truck I traded it in almost two years ago and bought a Bmw 535i. So I primarily signed back into the forum here to try to sell a few parts I still had laying around in the garage but I guess I need a few posts before I list anything for sale on on here.

Hello & Thank you!

Just bought my first Avy, a 2010 LTZ after trolling this forum for months.  All of the great knowledge paid off.  After a six hour drive from Orlando to Atlanta, I was well armed to haggle with the salesperson.  Battle fought and won at about $4000 below NADA.  Looks like the previous owner made a few modifications (HID bulbs, upgraded air filter, Magnaflow exhaust tips, Putco cosmetics) that the dealer was unfamiliar with.
On the wishlist for the near future are Spyder Halo headlights, then LED tailights, and if Santa is good to me this year, a chrome bull bar (with more lights).
Thanks again for all the great information,

Rich

Just bought my first Avalanche and I'm in love!! I have a black 2013 Black Diamond edition! It came complete with a 7 1/2" lift kit and 37" tires on 20" wheels and is BEAUTIFUL! I just recently got all the wood grain parts back from being hydrodipped to be muddy girl camo since I'm not a wood grain kinda girl.

Can't wait to learn more about my Avey!!

Hi everybody, after owning a white 2002 AV for a few years I finally made it back and now have a low mileage 2008 IBM LTZ. Loving the truck after only having it for a couple weeks now. Let the modding begin (Plasti Dip spray can in hand).....  :B:

Hi everyone, came here looking for info and decided to join.  I have a fully loaded 2010 Avalanche LTZ in White Diamond Tricoat with the 'light titanium/dark titanium' (aka gray) interior.  I purchased it new in Sep 2010, and as of this moment it has exactly 34,444 miles on it - needless to say I plan on keeping it for a while.

Just bought my first Avalanche. A 2008 LTZ loaded with 165,000 KM ( 102,000) miles. It looks more like 65,000 km. This was a one owner vehicle that the woman forgot to monitor the oil and destroyed the engine. The GM Dealer put in a new 6 litre engine with a 3 year warranty so I'm pretty happy. Im amazed at all the bells and whistles this has. I'm a lucky guy that has a wife that has located our last 2 vehicles that have been exceptional. This is a photo off the internet but looks exactly like mine.

Just bought this after looking for a short box pickup. I had no idea how versatile this truck is. Nice ride and hauls a 4X8 sheet of plywood with the gate up. Amazing. This has more bells and whistles than anything I have ever owned except maybe my Z06 Corvette (gone). The one issue I have is that typical ugly bow tie emblem that's F'd up like most of them I have seen. I'm thinking I may paint it white to match the vehicle. I tried to get it off after removing the nuts on the back but it seems to have some kind of adhesive that won't let go.

The previous owner didn't monitor the oil and fried the 6 litre engine. The GM dealer replaced the engine with a new GM engine and it has a 3 year warranty. So far I'm pretty impressed with my new ride. This photo is from the internet but is exactly like mine.

First welcome to the website!

I don't remember any tape involved in holding on the front bowtie. Maybe it's just stuck a little due to age? You might try gently prying with a small flat blade screwdriver after removing the nuts off the back?
FYI bowties are relatively cheap at a dealer and you could buy one and paint to your liking and seeing the back side to check for clips etc. too.
Be advised this site will give you plenty of ideas on modding your Av and members will gladly help you spend your money!!!  :4:

Hello AVY fans! I guess it's good for me that it's called fan club, and not a owner's club (cause I don't own one, YET)
I have narrowed my search to (4) avy's. (3) of them '12 's, (1) '11
This site have been very helpful in deciding between LTZ and air ride shocks, or painted sails, or engines with AFM issues....

I've been doing a lot of research on here but never registered. Thanks for all the info on here. Below is my 2007 5.3L LTZ with 168,000 miles. It was given to me by my girlfriend. It was stolen from our apartment back in June 2014 and recovered in February 2015. She only had liability insurance on it because she rarely drove it so it still has a clean title. The interior trim, stereo, pcm, key recognition module,battery,license plate, and wheels were missing. It appears that rats were living in it. While missing, it was driven a bit over 5,000 miles. I found casino chips and other random stuff like 3 trailer hitches, a bag of vehicle break in tools, and plastic plant pots and some foil like, reflective material.

Here is what it looks like now. It has a ways to go but hey, it was free... Well, she decided my 2013 BMW 328i M sport is now here since I put a ring on her finger. So maybe I paid too much for it after all.

Anyways:

HI All

I am a British guy living in IA, after moving here just 2 years ago, I knew I had to have an AV, and after 2 years of waiting hoping and saving, I got her, my black 2008 AV.

I love her, yes ok the fuel consumption (gas Mileage - for the locals) sucks, but when you drive AV who cares, we don't buy it for the economy.

Black 2008 LS
LTZ options package
Sun Package
Chrome Package.

She looks beautiful, but wondering on the best product to keep the plastic looking new??

oops i forgot to post here first..... well darn... okay so i bought a 2008 Chevrolet  :B: avalanche z71 used here in texas.  i have been "obsessed" with these vehicles since they were introduced in 2002. I worked for chevrolet in kansas city back in 2007 when i spent a lot of time with the avalanche and fell head over heals.

working on setting up my stats on here

2008 chevy avalanche black z71, dual exhaust, nav, rear view camera, single tone black leather, remote start, sunroof, roof rack, (purchased used so no hard 3 panel cover for the bed so purchased a lo pro bed cover) also has tekonsha voyager trailer brake system installed by previous owner.

so what next lol

Hi Everyone.... new Avalanche owner here, always wanted one since they first came out, never thought that I would get one.  Now, I've got myself a nice clean 2007 LT.  Going to do a few mods to it for updated stereo and camera and the like.  Always looking for help and suggestions on products, and easy but correct way to do things!

Always owned Chevy / GMC, since my family works for GM. 

Happy to have found the group!

Hey everyone!  I just picked up an 07 Pewter LT with the 5.3, 130k miles.  It's bone stock.  I had an 03 Pewter Av without the body hardware and loved it.  Put it on some Boss 20's and added a lowering kit.  I kick myself everyday for getting rid of it.  I already love this truck.  It's pretty well loaded up and it is super comfortable, like an Av should be.

I am looking forward to breaking out the mods soon.

Hey y'all, just checking in.  Been a lurker for a while.  I finally pulled the trigger on my dream truck at the end of September.  2013 LT Z71 Black on Black.  Unfortunately it has rained everyday since I got her.  I'll post pics soon after I get her cleaned up again. 

She looks to be stock, but I look forward to some DIY mods soon!  Love all the ideas in the threads, but the hard part is figuring out what to do first!

Howdy.

Bought a 2007 Avalanche LTZ silver and had issues right away with tranny. Once I got that fixed all is peachy.

Thanks for letting me hang out and see what other owners are doing to their trucks.

Hi everyone.

I am new but have already posted a few questions to the help forum.

I bought a new-to-me 2009 Avalanche LTZ.  Love this thing. I previously owned a 2010 HHR LS 5 speed, and before that a 2006 Cobalt SS G85.  I also own a 2014 Wrangler and a 1986 M1008.

Here it is.

Congrats on the new AV and  :welcome: to the club!!!! Don't be shy around here! Check out the regional threads for get togethers as well! What area are you from?

I'm in the Memphis, TN area.  Just made a trip to STL.  I am super satisfied with the gas mileage!  My 03 Dodge Dakota was getting about 13.5-14.0 driving to work and back.  I'm knocking down around 16 in a much bigger and more comfortable vehicle.  On the hwy I was getting a little over 20.

Hey everyone. Been a few years since I've been on. My last Avalanche "Big Red" was T-Boned a little over 2 years ago and I have been on a journey to get another Avalanche since. Well I am moving on from my last (2006 Z71) to my newest! Picked up a 2007 Avalanche LTZ with EVERY option as of yesterday! Pretty excited to be back in an Avalanche. Question for you 2nd get pros: Vehicle has 130k on the odometer, supposedly 1 owner, what maintenance would you recommend as I bought it from a small dealership? (btw, its the 6.0 if that makes a difference in maintenance schedule). And I see the voice button on the steering wheel, does the 2007 LTZ have Bluetooth?

Thanks in advance everyone!

I just bought a 2008 deep ruby metallic LTZ with 14,000 miles on it 2 weeks ago. I was actually looking for a 4 door Frontier or Tacoma pick up when this came up for sale in my town. I found this site while researching possible problems, and it has already been helpful to me as I already have a bad door lock actuator and TPMS sensor.

Hello all.  Long time Chevy owner, first time Avalanche owner and looking forward to it!  The wife upgraded my 01 Silverado to an 08 Avalanche (Blue Granite Metallic LT1).  It spent an afternoon getting the "we owe" list accomplished from the dealership; Keys, remotes and driver side rear noise (broken rear shock) looked at.  Lots of good info so far and hopefully contribute some on my end. 

Looking forward to deciphering the RPO codes to see what the "83 installed options" are according to http://www.compnine.com/vid.php

Drive on!

Hello, I just joined after finding this place after I bought my victory red 08 Avalanche LT 5.3L FlexFuel with (at the time two months ago) 64,000 miles at a used car place. Despite having to immediately replace rear brakes, replace one door lock actuator, and currently attempting to get the cracked dashboard fixed. Other then that it is a great vehicle and I plan to keep till either it or I die.

Just thought I'd introduce myself.  I've already posted a couple times, though.  I'm Scott from Toledo, Ohio.  I just bought my Avalanche a couple months ago now and I absolutely love it.  I did replace the factory Nav unit already because it didn't do a couple things that I want my stereo to do even though it was a pretty darn good unit (I've read the comments in the electronics section on it and all I can say is that some people are way more picky then me because tearing out the factory Bose amp and speakers is a whole lot of work for minimal gain in my eyes).

I have a 2011 Avalanche LTZ and it is black.  I have to admit that I did want silver due to it looking cleaner longer, but the black looks awesome when its clean.  Crossing my fingers for many years of good use because I HATE BUYING CARS!

Hi Folks,

Newbie here...just picked up a 2008 LS 4WD.  I love the truck, but it's got a couple issues that I'm hoping to resolve by searching the forum and maybe with a little bit of your support.  I have been driving and working on my own stuff for over 30 years and I've had them all GM, Ford, Mopar, etc.  I'm a Chevy man at heart and I keep coming back.  :B:  I needed a 4WD and my buddy sold me on the avy (he's got a 2007).  I totally love the versatility and utility of this truck.

I'm looking forward to some great discussions on this forum.

You will need a few more posts under your belt for the option to be able to post pics directly in the forum.

However, you can upload your pics to a site like PhotoBucket (http://www.photobucket.com) and then copy the IMG link provided there and paste that link into your post on this forum.

You can do that from your very first post in the forum.

If you just post a few more times, the option to simply post your pics and have them hosted on the forum server will become available.

There are pros and cons to each method.

I prefer the PhotoBucket option since you do not have to resize your pictures first.

Look for the forum topic about test posting pictures and figure out which method you prefer.

Hi Everyone,

I recently bought a 2007 Avalanche LT3.  I've always wanted an AV.  After I lost my Silverado Z71 in an accident, I began to search high and low for an AV.  It took months to find a nice one.  Why do people beat the hell out of these things, then try to get top dollar for them when you can clearly see the truck took a beating?  This forum helped me with my search.  Thank you all very much.

Hey Y'all, Newbie here! Starting the year off in a forum.
My Avalanche is a 2007 Graystone LT. I've had this truck for about 3 years and I'm up to 119k.
I've replaced the factory 17" wheels with aftermarket 20s (not my favorite, caught a good deal). Got a couple concerns and hope that someone can direct me on where to post my problems. I want to keep this truck as long as possible, I just need to do some maintenance work.
1. I've added a RC 2" front level but I'm still about an inch away from level. I bought a 1/2" spacer in hopes that'll work. I haven't installed it yet but I wanted to see what others thought. Will I need anything to add that extra 1/2".
2. I think I'm down to my last tweeter. But sometimes, on a perfect day out, a speaker decides it wants to play. Not sure if it's the wiring or just all speakers have blown.
Any help is appreciated!!

Hi Gang !!  New kid on the block !!  Live in Michigan City Indiana, right across the lake from Chicago. An accident caused me to go looking for a replacement for my 2001 Silverado. Had 220K miles on her but I could hit the road to Erie Pa, at 80 mph, ride smooth, handle perfectly, 19 gpm, 1 qt oil per oil change at 2.5k. Late night & pulled out in front of a smaller van. Both parties lots of bumps, no blood or serious injury. Worst pain is my pride, ruined a 52 yr safety record. The car was right in the blind spot behind my left shoulder. Loved that truck but,,,, stuff happens.
 OK, so I need another truck. Can't exist without a truck... Memory kicks is as I recall a family reunion at my inlaws up in da U.P. at Munising, MI. Brother-in-law had a Avalanche, 2003 or 04 as memory serves. Had to run to the store so he says try it "on for size".
The rest is history. Hunted all around here, Chesterton, Gary, St. Joseph, Mi, South Bend, etc. Nothing at a fair price. Had to go bach to the old home town for some family business. It's June and the hills are beautiful so it's off to run some of the old back roads. 12 miles east is Corry, Pa, sister is there. Stop, say hello-by-by and off down the road east. US 6 bares right while a county blacktop goes straight. At that "Y" is Crotty Chev. Being a wise guy,and figuring the "hay-seed" would be stumped, I pull up and and hollar, got and Avalanches??  Sure, he said, nice one over here.
Well, you got the picture, that's the one I now own.  It's pretty bad that one has to go to the "woods" to find one...
I owned her for 3 months and put 3 K miles on it. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS TRUCK !!!!
Long story but funny.   Club members are welcome here at 123 Vail St.

Hello everyone happy to be here. Psyched about my new 2011 "Avy" as you call them. Wish I could post pics but I'm clueless as to how! Anyway, I love the truck just not sure how I feel about all of the chrome...thinking of doing an operation blackout but it seems like so much time, effort, and money, especially since I'd have to pay someone else to do all the work! Ideas + suggestions welcomed.

I've spent some time on Ebay looking at simple black oem style wheels as I want the truck to look stock (like a black edition or something) but I think the bland wheels would not match all the other chrome trimmings unless I switched them out too, which seems more complicated to find. It appears that I'd need to replace the side molding and mirror caps with body colored pieces as well...those do not seem as easy to find.

I could probably easily sell the factory wheels and tires (newer duellers on stock 20 inch chromes) but once I do that I'm only halfway there...

Decisions, decisions,...

Anyway, I'm glad this forum exists thanks for having me!!!

Hello everyone. My name is Pamela and I am on my second Avalanche. This one is a forever truck and it's pure stock save for a bug shield.  So far.

I absolutely love my baby but I plan to get more out of her. I do tow a fairly heavy trailer sometimes, and it pushes the limit of the truck.  I want to be able to beef up the suspension to handle <> 8000 lbs without sagging too much, the engine to pull it up hills, the transmission to handle the increased hp and torque without blowing up and possibly a few cute accents to make her look better into the bargain.

I've been lurking here for a while and seen some really nice things, and a few ideas I want to steal.  I also know enough about modding to ask others who have done it before and to learn from them.

I am a decent shade-tree wrench-turner but I know my limits and will delegate the big jobs to professionals.  I have to resize my pictures to share them but we all know a midnight black BD Avy by now.

I hope to make a few new friends as well as learn more about my truck while I am here.

See you around!

Pam

Welcome to the site, as far as loading pictures there is a thread that explains the procedures to adding them to a post. Many members put the photos on a third party hosting site and then put the link in their post. I believe you have to have a certain post count before you can add them directly and then they can only be of a certain size limit.
Hope you have many happy and safe miles in your AV.

Found a nice one owner 07 Granite Blue LT with 62k miles, decided to take it home. This is my first Avalanche. I've been driving a Dodge 3/4 four wheel drive, I got to the point I didn't need a 3/4 ton and though about getting an SUV. I started looking at the Avalanche and well now it is setting in the driveway.
I pulled my Polaris Ranger crew this weekend, and while the Avalanche doesn't have a Hemi it did a very good job. :thumbsup:

I plan on looking around the site and seeing what I can learn

Bought my 2012 Avy in June of 2015. It was completely untouched and only had about 20K miles on it, and many of those miles were being towed behind the guy's RV. This last weekend I finally got around to doing what I wanted to do from day 1 to it. McGaughy's 7" Autoride suspension lift and 35" Toyo MTs

Bought my 2011 LTZ back in July, took me over a few months to make the choice between a Silverado crew cab or the av and I couldn't be happier. I've already been all over this site looking different things up and just finally got around to signing up. Already installed the dee zee easy down and have the bug deflector and tailgate light bar coming in this week

Finally joined the club.

Bought my Avalanche April 2015 and have been having a good time going camping with my trailer.

It had all of the features that I wanted, and a few problems also.

5 of the 6 speakers were blown with the stock radio.  Luckily only the speakers were toast so it was an easy fix.

Adding the break controller and rear view camera were my first projects.  I can switch from the camera on the back of the truck to the back of the trailer when it is plugged in.

I'm glad to have found your site. I'm in the process of rebadging my Avalanche as I like the clean lines without the billboard lettering Chevy puts on them. I'll be looking for Q&A about how to remove or change the front and rear bowtie.

My latest trip was to Fort Morgan near Gulf Shores Alabama. We always take the truck on road trips. The ride reminds me of the big cars of the fifties only taller but just as broad.

First off,  :welcome: to the club! We are happy to see new members daily!

This forum works as well as the members allow it to! We have lost some activity over the years, but we still have many, many members that post regularly and answer questions! There are many different sections of questions and resources, as well as a search bar in the upper corner that you can use to search millions of past posts for answers to any question you may have!

As far as rules, just be courteous and kind! Be helpful when you can, and ask questions if you have them, but chances are they have already been asked and you can find the answer by a quick search!

Also, be sure to Check out sections related to your area for get togethers and club activities in your area.

Topics are sorted into the most appropriate categories, as to make it easier to address questions and answer them fully. If you post a question that a moderator thinks should be in another section, he will move it to that section. It does not get deleted, and if for some reason you can't find it, go to your profile and search your recent posts, and you will be able to click and go to it.

You can post and comment as you wish, but it may take a few posts before you get the hang of the different categories! Not a problem, we all started there at first! You will figure it out as you go along!

The easiest way to share images here is to upload them to an outside hosting site (photobucket, etc) and copy and past the links here in the forum!

Also, take the time to update your "forum profile information" and your "signature" with the year and style of your truck, to make it easier for members to answer any question you might have! It is also a great place to post what modifications you do to your truck, because once you start to surf the boards, the mod bug will bite you at some point!


If you have anymore questions, feel free to ask! And again,  :welcome:

G8 are pretty good for a car, if I remember right when you sold the first AV didn't you buy a Trans Sport mini van

I bought a Grand Prix when I traded the Av.

I got a weather beater Trans Sport that I had for a year when I got the G8, then sold it because it blew the head gasket. Got the Saturn Relay as a replacement and have had that for 6 years. It is up for sale.

New to the site... just picked up a 2007 "SS" - by Southern Coach - Sunburst Orange 4wd (yes I know there is no factory SS)... but I love my "LTZ/SS" edition with all the tasteful mods already done for me...

So far so good except I think I have a bad BOSE amp which I have another on the way to see..

Looking for some good info here and to contribute what I can.

New member but not new to the forum. I've been using the site as my go-to research tool for my '07 LTZ 6.0L. I've had it for over 2 years and run up nearly 60k miles in that time. Lots of that time spent in the dirt, mud, snow, etc. just like it should be. Also lots of highway time all over the southwest and as far east as Arkansas.

Love this site/forum. Keep up the good work. I look forward to contributing my two cents every so often. Pictures to follow once I'm able.

Hello, I'm a two time AV owner. My first was a 2008 which I recently traded in on a 2013 Black Diamond LTZ, black in color with all the goodies! Love the versatility of them. I will be asking questions in the future about others towing experiences with their AV.
On a second note, I went to the photo tutorial and it wouldn't open for me. Guess I will need help with that.

Post by: sgubser on 04/25/16 07:02 AM
I just bought a 2009 with 110,000 miles.  Looks like its brand new and I am very happy with it.

I replaced the LTZ 20' wheels with new 22' escalade wheels.   I lowered the front 2" and the back 3" with a kit from McNaughty's.   Look terrific and handles much better than stock in my opion with a lot less roll in corners.   Still has a great ride and the kit keeps the autoride function working.

Another new guy here! Just picked up an 08 Deep Ruby 2LT Z71 with 67k on Saturday and I LOVE IT! Coming from an 04 Silverado Z71 and man, this thing is just worlds apart. Better ride, better steering, better handling, just an overall better vehicle inside and out! I'm loving the midgate functionality and the options I have with it, it's such a cool feature and my 6 year old thinks it's so awesome to cruise around with everything wide open like that. Though it doesn't hold a candle to the RSE that he thinks is the absolute bees knees lol. As much as I hate to say it, thing thing is even nicer than my 05 CTSV, albeit somewhat slower :P

After longing for an '07 or newer Tahoe for about 2 years I've had a complete change of heart and am now diving into the classifieds for an '07 or newer Avalanche! I cram some pretty crazy loads into my vehicles and the Avalanche may be the first vehicle I will own that will actually be able to take it without leaving the back door open and bungeed, tearing the headliner or making a mess of the interior carpeting. I'll still always have a soft spot for the '07-'14 Tahoes but I have a feeling my Avalanche and I are going to be made for each other.

Here's what I need to haul:

Welcome stephenhughes!

There are plenty of 2013 AVs for sale nationwide and prices and features do vary........

https://www.cargurus.com/Cars/l-Used-2013-Chevrolet-Avalanche-Black-Diamond-LTZ-4WD-t44582

If you can't travel maybe you could use a car appraisal service to check the vehicle out for accident or flood damage if you find one that looks good but is far away? Then you could have it shipped to you so you don't have to travel.
Good luck with your search.

Hello to Avalanche owners.  My name is Dan and just purchased a 2010 Chevy Avalanche LTZ.
I love the vehicle and ride is AWESOME.
Can someone help with question about this vehicle?
How many 2010 did they make with 6.2 liter?
My vehicle was registered in Canada (New Brunswick) and made its way into the US.
It only has 71,000 miles and in excellence shape.
I have K&N intake and Corsa cat back exhaust...the vehicle sounds great and is fast.

Thanks,

Dan

:welcome: to the club dnfrance, can't get you a exact number but very few of them were made for export.

I have only heard of 3 members that said they had a 6.2 factory AV all from Canada.

Hello Avy forum,

new member here.  I have a 09 avy Z71, leather, heated steering wheel, heated seats, and a sunroof.
Sure love it.  Smooth ride, comfortable and versatile.  Mine also has a magnuson supercharger, longtube headers, Corsa exhaust and puts 388lb ft of torque to the pavement.  Professionally installed and tuned by Davenport Motorsports.  It is a great truck.  GM really should have never stopped making these trucks.  They are so versatile and hands down one one of the best on the road.  Enjoy your Avys fellas!

Hello all!!
New Member here.. I bought a 2007 Avalanche LTZ w/200k kms. Black on black..
I was the very very proud owner of a 2003 Envoy With many upgrades and mods. Unfortunately it was "Gone in 60 Seconds".
I will be looking for some help as I have encountered a few problems now. I've already used the forms to help me fix a couple of things. Love you guys thanks!!
Right now my biggest issue seems to be with a speed sensor.  :help: When it rains or hit a puddle period I experience traction control, abs, hard shifting ect..
I've check the wheel sensors and greased them..
Anyhow I look forward to getting to know a few of you guys. I can't express my thanks enough for the hard work you guys put in to helping out guys like myself. I would have been lost without the forms on my last vehicle.
Thanks so much you guys deserve much more than I could ever give!!!  :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :B:

Much Love from Ontario Canada

Aimvee from Ontario Canada,

 :welcome:  to the club neighbor, several Ontario members visit GTGs in Michigan.
I'm only an hour west from Sarnia and do have an enhanced license so can cross into Canada.
Acadia for now, an errant driver destroyed my Avalanche recently in far less than 60 seconds.

Check the Michigan section, the Dream Cruise is one event you might find interesting.  :B:

About an hour drive each if we meet at the Blue Water Bridge half way  :thumbsup: 
As close as I am I haven't been to Canada much but always enjoyed myself there.
Ontario isn't much different than Michigan, aside from our Detroit metro area

New Member from mid-Michigan here.

I just inherited a 2008 Avalanche.  I think it has been lowered a bit, and I know some of the stock badges and nameplates have been removed and painted over, so I guess It's "slightly" customized.

So far I love it.
I mean I really love that truck - I've had it 1 month; and I have owned trucks for years.

Any way, I'll be poking around to get tips, tricks and ideas.

Hello, I joined a while back but did not introduce my self. I'm Chris, Hey everyone. I bought our 2007 Avalanche LT with 80,000 miles on it. My old ride, 2009 Trailblazer SS, had a parasitic draw and no mechanic or electrical mechanic could figure out what was going on. So, it was my down payment. I am happy to say, I love my Avalanche. I hope to add some pictures on this site soon.
First mod I have made was vinyl the chevy bowties to carbon fiber look. Then I bought the EONON G6180F head unit. I like the stock look with the perks of being an Android unit.

Hey, bought an 09 LT a week ago & LOVE IT!!!!!  Did some research and decided I wanted an 09 vs the GMT 800 for a couple of reasons....6L80 vs 4L60 & a nicer interior (in my opinion anyhow)...LT1 with the upgraded cooling (pull a 2 horse trailer pretty often)...the last large SUV I had was a 96 Suburban 7 yrs ago, so it feels nice getting back into a comfortable, good riding truck.....pics to follow!!!!

Hey guys, new to the group here. Just bought my 2009 Chevy Avalanche LT Z71 in ruby red. It's incredibly clean inside and out with black leather interior.  I'll post some pictures when I figure out how to. It has a flowmaster muffler on it and 22" liquid metal rims. This is my first Avalanche and I absolutely love it so far. I haven't used a forum in a while so I'm still trying to figure things out. A little bit about me, I'm 28 years old, have a wife and 2 beautiful kids, I've worked for the department of corrections for 6.5 years now (not the best job but it supports my family and pays the bills!) I'm looking forward to learning all about these trucks and getting to know you guys. PS, I live in the great state of Colorado!

New guy here.

I just bought a 2011 Avalanche LT in Imperial Blue Metallic (with a pretty gray metallic pen stripe). The truck is clean and stock, w/ the gray leather / carpeting.  While this is my first Avalanche, I have had a number of GM products over the years.  I've had a pair of Suburban's, a Pontiac Montana, a G30 based RV, a 84 Olds Cutlass and a 76 Camero.

I'm 47 and the wife is 45.  We have five kids, a cat, a dog, a rabbit and an ant farm.  The kids are 23, 21, 19, 17 and 7, with the older three out on their own and the 17 Y-O is away at college.  I'm a software developer (pays the bills), a backyard mechanic (I'm also cheap), and a video game and movie junkie by choice (a good way to connect with the kids).  I'm also an occasional poster over on VW Vortex (same username), having had at least one VW since the 17 Y-O was born.

Hey everyone,

New to this forum but not forums.  Picked up a 2002 z71 with 234,000 miles on it a couple weeks ago and have been fixing the little issues.

started with tires - 285/75-16 falken wildpeak
added a trailer brake controller
the pinion seal on the rear dif was leaking, replaced and adjusted pinion bearing tension.
interior door light lenses were missing
drains in the bed were plugged so water was coming inside
headlights aimed too high
added a factory roof rack
was missing the spare tool kit
was straight piped to duals so added dual mufflers
intermittent ABS light - mostly fixed by cleaning up the ground wire mounts (have new hubs with abs sensors waiting to install)
weak passenger rear window lift, new one waiting for install
power mirrors don't work, haven't dug into that yet.
black leather interior is in great shape now that I got all the water out of the carpet. only fault is the sunroof cover headliner.

its a very comfortable truck for my family and perfect for towing the camper

Been lurking here for a while - '13 Black Diamond Edition

Nothing special - with the truck - replaced radio with a touch screen/nav system, removed all Avalanche lettering from the driver/passenger door.  Tow a boat once in a while otherwise its my 'we need to get this big thing from here to there' truck.

2011 since new, love it. White Diamond LTZ, 22's, loaded. Added a bed slide (YouTube) to help with grocies and golf clubs, added 48 LEDs to help with nighttime loading. Stock otherwise.

Hello. I just recently purchased a 2007 Avalanche 1500 LT. ( My first I might add). However I've been a Chevy owner most of my life.
Just got back off of a 500 mile road trip & love the performance. Ride good, power good, mileage good. Just what I would expect from a Chevy.  However I did not check the radio when I bought the vehicle. It is a non-BOSE. The only speakers that work are the front driver door & the front pilar speakers. Nothing on the passenger door or rear doors. All other functions on the radio appear normal. I realize the vehicle is 10 years old but (3) speakers going out at the same time seems unusual. Any thoughts, similar problems or best of all, any fixes?
Thanks
Don McConnell

I just purchased a 2011 CA LTZ with 130K.  Had it for two days and love it.  I also have a 02 that I was going to trade, but decided to keep it.  I like them both for different reasons.  I think I'm going to lift the '02 and turn it into more of a custom rig.  The 2011, I'll leave stock, except the headlights (going with LED's with the half led DRL's.  That will be used for sunny weather on weekends.

In any case, I'm glad to be here

Hello dear forum members. My first post I left in the section "Outside Americas", but I want to say hi here as well. I have, so far, are not the owner of the Avalanche (I have a Chevy Tahoe), but I hope that someday I will be able to find such a car. In our country (I live in Russia) Avalanche is very rare.
I was upset when I found out that they discontinued in 2013. In my opinion this is strange, since the Avalanche is unique in the world. If any other car can be replaced with something similar from another manufacturer, the Avalanche is no substitute. Too bad.
I apologize for the "curve" language - unfortunately the automatic translator is better not can.

I am signing in for the first time. Hope to learn some thing about my ride. Will take some time to get up to speed on the site. I have a 2007 Avalanche and it has some problems which I hope to be able to track down with some help. The main item is the the CEL says I have a problem with cat and bank 2. Not sure if it is a o2 sensor or the cat itself. 2nd problem is the ignition needs replaced.

Hope to learn all the different things here, thanks again.

Hi - new member Brian here from Coventry CT.  I've had a 2007 LT Z71 for about 2 years now.  Not sure why it took me so long to join as I have found info on this forum that has helped with some issues I've had.  My Avy is white with black leather interior.  It's got a 2 inch leveling kit with black KMC XD Monster rims with 305/50-20 Hankook Dynapro ATM's on it.  Got it with 70k miles and it just turned 100k.

Glad to be here and looking forward to learning a thing or two about my truck.

Hey gang.

New member.  Just got around to joining.  Long time lurker.
Y first Avalanche was a 2003 white Z-66 with cladding.  She made it 218k before it was hit down the side, took out the rocker panels and it was too expensive, totaled.  Great truck, original engine and transmission and still ran and towed top notch.  Purchased new. 

So today I purchased a 2011 black LTZ 4wd.  Pick it up Friday after some service.

No better mid size truck for me!

Hello fellow Chevy Avalanche owners!
I purchased my first avalanche mid last year, it is a 2010 LTZ - white with the 5.3 and beige interior
the previous owner fitted rear head rest DVD players and Clarion stereo - Since I bought it I have replaced
the rear suspension shock compressor, head lights (new OEM ), vent dash panel and 1 mirror. all required from general
wear and tear. It has 150,000k's on the clock. I also fitted rear coil blocks and front strut blocks to lift it up a bit.
 I want to fit a new exhaust system and bigger wheels and tyres one day but its a great truck.

I do have 1 question straight up. When I bought it I made it clear that is was a 4x4. which it is.
but found out it does not have low range ( single speed transfer case ) and going off literature, 2 speed transfer case
was an option in 2010 -  :E: and who ever bought this new did not tick that box  :E:

I would like to know as I searched thru the forum but could not find it - if you can convert the single speed transfer case to a 2 speed one
I assume the buttons is the easy bit  :D

anyway great forum, thanks for accepting my request, much appreciated

tim

I have a bubba horn that plays a fight song. Got EHCNALAMAB reversed on bug deflector so it reads BAMALANCHE When people are looking in their rear view mirror. I have the championship logo painted on the 3 bed panels. Ive painted plexiglass black and placed them in the sail hole with a logo as well. Installed crimson stringing around inside door panel and in dashboard. Installed blue mood lighting around sunroof. Installed red led lights near sail screws, 5 lights on each side. Removed Chevy bow tie and placed lighting around it and replaced. Trying to place lighting in sail whole to illuminate the logo there on the plexiglass I have pics but wonít let me post here

New 22" Wheels and tires
New halo headlights
LED taillight bar
Pioneer stereo system including DVD head unit, speakers, 10" subs and amp
New 5.7L LS1 with cam, headers
Borla exhaust
K&N air intake

Hello from The Lone Star State. I'm a new owner of a gently used 2007 Z-71 2wd. I've owned fullsize Chevy SUV's since 1997 and love them. The versatility of the AVL is great, and so far she runs like a sewing machine. I didn't get an owner's manual so google and lots of questions here hopefully will answer whatever questions I have. I also have a 1996 GMC K1500 Suburban that I've owned since 2004. Bought it with 170K on the ticker, and she's about 400 miles shy of 400K now. I'm a decent shadetree mechanic, but usually have enough sense to wave off anything out of my knowledge base. From what I've read here so far, Y'all have a wealth of knowledge about these trucks and it's impressive. I look forward to picking your brains!

Cant wait to catch up on ways to make my 07 AV LS 4x4 beautiful once again. I bought her in colorado in 14 to pull our 30' camper as we moved back to Fla. It was time to take care of my folks. Its looking rough and needs new rims and tires, leveled, brakes and door speakers. Looking forward to everyones ideas.

Thanks for allowing me to the club.

My name is Darrell.  I teach High School and College Mathematics and purchased a beautiful "used" orange '11 Avalanche.  I'm color blind but my wife and others tell me it's an awesome color.  We had out choice to go with new trucks but when I saw this on a used car lot, I absolutely had to have it.

i know i will be asking a lot of questions but i will read a bit first.  thanks again.

I'm in Oklahoma and bought a 2013 Texas Edition with 82,000 miles. My brother in Wyoming had 2 over the years and still regrets getting rid of them. I've always wanted one since they first came out. Recently my Jeep Wrangler finally died (throw out bearing on the original clutch) after 302,000 miles and I searched for an Avalanche the same night. There just happened to be one that was listed that very day at a dealer and I bought it the next day. It was in excellent condition, clean, black and beautiful. What a truck! I have owned nothing but Ford Trucks and Jeeps since my '73 Camaro. The Avalanche is amazing. I don't know why I didn't get one sooner!

Hi. I am new to Avalanche, having recently purchased a 2007 LT for personal use. I have no plans to modify it or customize it, at this time.

I am transitioning from a 1994 Jeep Wrangler to a more grand kid friendly vehicle, and one that can carry 5, plus tow something bigger than a jet ski.  I had originally set out to buy a 4 door full size pick-up and hadn't given much thought to the Avalanche. I came close to pulling the trigger on a Silverado, before the Avalanche caught my eye.  I am a fan of dark blue....what can I say.

It is early yet, but so far no regrets with my choice.  Currently debating whether to modernize the wheels, since the original wheels are scruffy and let the truck down.  But as a part time vehicle that will see limited use and some beach use at that, I don't want to get new wheels ruined.  Need to make the decision soon, as I need new tires.  Feel free to weigh in with advice.

Hello all! Just bought a 2011 LT w/ZL1 package in Summit White. Will be my DD and tow pig for the summer (and hopefully many more summers to come). Look forward to pursuing the site.

I bought my 2009 Avalanche on 7/3/18 and joined here and was accepted today. I have it in already for the PO446 code, front windows tint and a new windshield. It is in great condition and I'll be spending a lot of time here reading, absorbing and just trying to learn a bunch.
Thanks for having me,
Bob.

I'm back! So long story short... Sold my 2012 LTZ a year ago. Bought an Impala because I needed a family car. I bought a house so I needed a truck again. So I traded in the impala for another Avalanche. Got a great deal on a 2012 LT 4x4.

Hello, My name is Randal Johnson. I am from Jackson, Ms. I served in the USAF and I work for the local Towing and Recovery Driving/Operating Tow Trucks and Low Boys.

This looks like a REALLY Cool Forum with A LOT of informative threads !!! Thank you for letting me post and visit !!!

I drive a 2007 Chevy Avalanche LT. She's Black with Black interior with only 170,000 miles. Truly a fun vehicle to drive.

My plans with this Avalanche is to build a really nice Sound Quality oriented Sound System and simply enjoy the hell out of driving it.

Again, Thank You.

Hi, my name is Rob and this is my second avy. First one was an 04, then after having it for a few years I traded up to a nicer z71 2008. So far in the last 6 months I've done black Bermuda led taillights, led projector headlights with morimoto mini h1 7.0's retro'd in and switchback led turn signals, leveling kit, led interior lights. Also two tens under rear seat and limo tint on the windows. Future mods will be a few more inches of lift and 35s, brake upgrade, touchscreen radio, and exhaust to start with a few.
