^thats on the to do list for me too ... .well mine just needs to be in the garage at night so i dont have to scrape windows  :4: that and only 7' tall doors the luggage racks hit the seals when i pull in and btw obb... my garage is a 2 car door and a single car door... i have pulled up to the single before but never tried to pull it in there so i feel your pain kinda  :laugh: except it is a pain to get 2 cars in the 2 car door  :E:
My antenna scrapes the door on the way in. I'm not sure of the door height but my 04 has a 3" body lift and higher TB keys along with the 33s. The bottom of the mirrors are 6" higher than either of our stock height avys. It's a tight fit for sure.

this is #5 for my first avalanche  quarter million miles on her. This one took weeks to die, some surging and lower power events thrown in to confuse me....

factory pumps suck haha


Jon...you still use factory fuel pumps?  That surprises me.  You should modify a stock housing to accept Walbro pumps.

Quality time today.  Got down and dirty under her undercarriage... She spewed fluids and all sorts of good stuff all over me when I started wrenching on her...   :A:   Good times...good times...I think you call it "second base"  ::)    Gave her the Royal treatment and filled her back up with some Purple stuff  :4:  Yeah...she's raunchy...but that's the way I like her  :thumbsup:

Too cheap?  With your skills I'm surprised you haven't built a bigger/better pump with old scrap parts you found lying around.  McGyver!   :beating:

Ditto. And I'm still getting to know how she handles in this white stuff. The threshold for loosing traction is much bigger than I'm used to; not to mention the countermeasures that it employs. It jerks it back into alignment with authority. :cool:

We just got a couple feet with a lot of wind.  It doesn't look bad, but this snow bank when into my radiator when I drove in to the garage.  But the truck is invincible with studded winter tires and 4x4.

you must have bad or stock tires...my Cooper Destination A/T3's are very grippy and sometimes when you wanna play its not as fun...I was very surprised with the traction on ice which we have a lot of here since sunday and now snowing with 8 inches on the way. then the fun starts with below zero temps and expected more that 30 below wind chills ect for many days...jeff

You may have misunderstood, friend. What I mean is, in comparison to my '07 WRX, though AWD, and such a "better" (when dry performance counts) power to weight ratio, with performance tires, with no countermeasures; it's just a rocket, your driving skill and the worst that winter can throw at ya. Even a little too much throttle, and with all that torque it can loose traction in a second, if not wary. That's what I mean - in the Avalanche I can be so much more careless (for lack of a better term) and not fear paying the consequences since it's so much heavier, lower P to W ratio and it takes over when it thinks I'm mishandling it. Sooo.... I THINK we're on the same page. :-) Driving the AV in the winter is a vacation compared to balancing that turbo-charged machine.

thanks for clearing that up .....we also have had wrx's for many years now my wife drives a '12 wrx and its is in the new purple color, the only upgrade we didn't get was the nav unit...we have dedicated 16" wheels and firestone's bliztec{I think that's the name} tires and they work awesome...bought them when we had the '09 and kept them for this car...she doesn't put a lot of miles on so they have good tread left...
