New owner of a 2007 Avalanche LS. Happy about this purchase and excited to start the mods. I drove to Charlotte NC from Wilmington NC for the buy and it was worth every penny. Stoked about everything the truck had to offer. Look forward to learning more from people on here and maybe a meet up sometime. Thanks for the add.

New member here folks.  I upgraded from an Avalanche 2004 Z71 to a 2010 LTZ,  Like driving a space shuttle from the old one. One owner 90k miles, untouched in either body or mechanical work and it drives and shows it. I've been "turning wrenches in the backyard" all my life and i hope i can help folks here with little tricks and ideas i have learned the hard way in my 65 years of life.

Here is an offer to someone... The rig had the notorious dash crack syndrome and the dealer did the normal dash skin replacement.  It was not secured correctly in my opinion and i removed it to reapply more RTV.  I noticed the cover did not have the front speaker holes (wrong cover).  I do things correctly so my new correct one will be here tomorrow.

If any of you would like a brand new dash skin brand cover (ebony black), no front speaker configuration please let me know. I have it scuffed up from proper adhesive placement as well.  It was brand new when i removed it as the vehicle was only on the lot for 14 days.

Its free if you'd like a early Christmas present.  HOWEVER... if you have a spare set of headphones and control unit for the rear entertainment console throw it my way as that is the only item i do not have with the new vehicle.

I am located in Illinois 24 miles NE of St. Louis.  The headphones and control are not any type of requirement to prevent someone from getting this brand new dash skin cover, at no cost,  just inquiring.
Thanks All !

Hi All,

Joined a few weeks ago looking for advise on which year to purchase.
Settled on a 2011 LT black. One owner, high kms  300k but drives great and tight. :B:

I have an Amsoil mygarage account and just set it up for my AV because I will be changing all the fluids.

It give two motor options:
5.3[0] LMG flex-fuel
5.3[3] LC9 flex-fuel

I cannot find where this info is located? Checked manual?
Does anyone know where I can find this info?
 :help:

Welcome CBraet!

Have you checked your RPO list inside your glovebox for the list of options on your AV yet? It should be there and for explanations for the other codes there is a thread that decodes everything for you:

Thanks Guys.
No, I have to check the glove box.

The thread you sent had this in it
LC9   Engine - Flexible Fuel, (GAS/ALC), 8 CYL, 5.3L, SFI, Alum, CYL Deactivation, GM
LMG  Engine - Flexible Fuel, (GAS/ALC), 8 CYL, 5.3L, SFI, V8, OHV, CYL Deactivation, GM
I believe mine is Alum but I will confirm in the morning

Also, the manual has no clear instructional on opening the mid gate?
I will search the site first then come back with any additional questions.

Thanks, I checked the codes, I have seen these codes before on all my other GM's and never really knew what they were for?

So it is an LC9 Alum block.

Hi, I am new to the club and have some very sad (and stressful) news as I have just been handed down a 2011 Chevy Avalanche LT. itís an awesome truck and I love everything about it. A little backstory on it though, it was bought by my dad from a salvage yard and put back together with the help of me and my grandpa. When we put everything back together we had to put a new tailgate on because the old one was demolished in the crash with the prior owner. Because of this, there is no backup cam in the rear view mirror (this model didnít have factory nav) and the tailgate does not lock when you lock the doors. I cannot trust putting anything in the bed of the truck If it cannot lock, which to me, is basically a waste of having a truck in the first place. Any help or info on the subject would be so helpful. Iím looking to hook everything back up and have the backup cam and sensors work as well as the tailgate lock, but the lock ability is the most important of them all. Thanks!
