 :wave:
We bought our first non-diesel Chevy about a week ago. It's a 2003 Z71, 4WD. The internet ad said "Gold", and the tag on the keyring said "Tan", so I guess it is goldish tan!  ;-)

Our Chrysler Town and Country blew it's transmission and left us without wheels. We are currently snowbirds with another truck in Colorado, but that doesn't help us in Arizona. So we went online and looked for about a week before we found this one. It was only 26 miles away, so the dealer drove 65 miles to come and pick us up to go for a test drive. We love it! For a used 2003 with 130,000 miles, it is in immaculate condition! It had/has a few minor problems, but nothing serious.

We will be moving from Colorado to Arizona in the next few months, so ending up with a truck just fell right into place! Eventually we will have an RV, and this will be the perfect toad! I read the towing part of the owner's manual and found that a 4WD can be towed with all 4 down (dinghy towing), but a 2WD has to have a dolly (dolly towing). We got real lucky there!

My wife is handicapped, so we got the Chrysler minivan for her wheelchair and ease of getting in and out. But I used NerveRenew to cure her neuropathy in her feet, and she is improving immensely, so she is actually able to climb in and out of the Avalanche...with the help of a step that I built 4 2x4's high, roughly 14 inches high. I can lock her wheelchair in the bed. She only rarely uses it anymore. I asked her..."When I get the Chrysler running good again, would you rather tow the Chrysler or the Avalanche?". She said "The Avalanche".

 :welcome: :welcome: :wave: We used to have one of the biggest groups down in AZ. Where in AZ are you going to be ? I am hoping to restart some interest in Avalanche gtg s like in the past. Chevy did wrong IMO by no longer making the Avalanche. Mine stays with me for life ! Glad to have you join us.

Newbie here. I just purchased my third avalanche, a 06 z71 4x4. My last two were new at the time so needed very little help except adding stuff. This one is going to need some tlc. Hopefully it isnít too much.

Hey everyone!!

So glad to have finally been admitted to the club. I first found it about 5 years ago when I got my avy, but thought is was dead as there were lots of older posts were the only things I had found. :E:

Been a Chevy guy all my life, from Camaros to Silverados to my Avy. You have no idea how glad I am to find others out here who love this beast as much as I do!!

Now do get some good digging in to finding my latest problems...

Hi there my name is Sean. I've got an '05 Avalanche LT with less than 150k on it. I've had it for almost 9 years and I love it. I work in a garage doing suspension and brakes on everything from pickup trucks and classic cars all the way up to cement mixers, dump trucks and firetrucks. I look forward to finding fun new things to do to my truck to make it even better. :B:
