Hello Everyone,

New member here in Northern California.  I'm a little late to the party as I just purchased a new to me 2006 2WD model.  I was pleased to find a very informative forum and a supportive group to share ideas and solutions with regarding this new truck.  I certainly hope that the server issues get ironed out, I would hate to see such a great resource go dark.

Cool.  There's a get together every fall at Avalanche Pizza in Athens.  You need to join us next year.  Seems like there are a few more southern Ohio folks these days.  Maybe we could get a GTG going sometime.

Hey, I'm in! Cool. I bought a nice black 2004 this past summer and have been trying to register here off and on ever since. For some reason I never got an activation e-mail, even trying several username/email combinations. Now suddenly I can log in without an activation e-mail. Weird. (note to the curious: my username is one I have used on forums relating to my Buick Roadmaster Estate Wagon, so if you've run across me there, then yes, I'm the same guy.)

Anyway, back to the truck: As I said, it was in nice condition, but needed attention to some details, most notably a new driver's side floor pan, new brake lines, new knock sensors and harness, new EVAP purge solenoid. I would like to thank those that have gone before and posted technical info about some of these repairs on this site. I couldn't post or see your pictures, but the info, particularly about the availability of the upgraded Delco brake line kit and the knock sensor RTV dam, were invaluable. I also found useful electrical info here when I installed an electric brake controller. (I took pictures as I went, but I don't know how many posts are required on this board to add photos and I don't want to push my luck now that I'm finally in... :D). Cosmetically, really all I had to do was get new DS seat and backrest upholstery made up by a local shop.

Anyway, I got it all fixed up, safety certified, near pristine and on the road before some jerk in the Home Depot parking lot backed into the DS rear fender with something sticking out of the back of their vehicle, cracking the taillight lens and putting a small dent just in front of it. ARRRGGGGHH!  :E: That'll have to wait for spring now though. The snow has arrived.

Hello everyone.  Another new member that never got the activation email but I guess I'm in this fine club.  I have a 05 Z66 LT which I bought used in 06.  It had 24,000 miles on it when I got it and now it is fixing to turn  78,000.  Boy, do my wife and I love this vehicle.  I have not had a speck of trouble since owning it. 

I want to thank whom ever for allowing me to become a member

G'Day fellow Avalanche Owners
(if you haven't worked it out yet I'm an Australian  :wave:

New to the group and thought I would introduce myself and tell you a little about how I became an Avalanche owner

Back in 2007 whilst living in Australia still I seen an article about the 2006 Chevy Avalanche in a magazine in a truck stop I had pulled into for the night. After reading the article and drooling over all the glossy Pictures of the beast I promised myself that should Chevy ever bring the Avalanche to Australia I was going to own one. Sadly that never happened but the dream never died...

Three years ago I came to the United States and loved it so much I decided to stay and the search began

a little over Twelve months ago I found her, big bold and black, low mileage and the perfect candidate to rebuild and start my pet project. She's a 2005 model Z71 fully optioned and was worth all of the ten grand I parted with to have her in my garage. over the last 12 months I have done several mods to her and when i work out how I will post some pics of my baby for you all to se.

Currently she has

Upgraded Towing Mirrors ( I pull a horse trailer and found the stock mirrors a little limiting )
Upgraded sound system with Back up Camera
2" lift in the rear sitting on Monroe Max Air Shocks ( makes for a nicer ride and sorts out the old Chevy Lean problem )
3" lift in the front to take a lot of the rake out of her ( wasn't real big on the nose down idea )
2" wheel spacers all round to increase the track and make her roll less in cornering
Custom LED light bar mounted to her Nudge Bar with some mods to the standard lighting to make her see better at night

Next I am looking at a wheel and tire package to give her some bigger boots from the standard factory mags (i'm thinking downsize to a 16" wheel and 285/75 16 to attempt to retain the same rolling diameter and give the wheel package a chunkier off road look


Anyway She's a work in progress and my Pride and Joy (wont even let the missus drive her  :thumbsup: )

So if anyone has any suggestions on wheel and tire packages sure would appreciate any input

Cheers for Now MrDingo2U   :thumbsup:

2006 LT Z71 Avalanche

3" leveling Kit
Monroe Max Air Shocks on rear
Interior & Exterior Lighting Mods
Custom Light Bar wired to operate with fog and H/B lighting system
Cubby Customization's to fit additional accessories
Tow Mirror Package added
Fuel Pump and System replaced

Just an old fella realizing another dream come true after way too many years of waiting :)
