Hey all, just posted the item below in the ...what would you buy now topic. Tells about my Av history. I'm in Dallas and just bought my 2nd Av in 12 years.

I bought my first Av in 2007 just after my divorce. Kind of a gift for myself for surviving it. It was a gently used 2004 z66 2wd, black, 30k miles. I loved it from the start. I don't drive a lot because I work from home and it was a great stable mate to the 2007 corvette I just bought also.

Recently started thinking of selling my old AV. It has 90K miles now and starting to show it's 15 year age. Steering box is manual on some left turns. Some new sounds/rattles in the last year also. My new wife and I want to pull our new home build travel trailer (from a cargo trailer) around the country and want something to tow it (only about 2k pounds). So we thought about SUVs, cross overs, pickup trucks, etc. I even thought about a new Colorado with the turbo 4 cylinder. But I can hear my buddies now saying, that ain't no real pickup with a 4 banger! And not a mid-gate in the bunch.

So last weekend I found a absolutely pristine 2012 Avalanche LS with low mileage. I tried it out and it was like driving a brand new Av. I bought it. What is the best replacement for an Avalanche? A newer one. I'm back in the saddle and smiling like a mule eating briers.

The best part? It is black like my old one and I tell all my friends that I finally washed my truck.  :laugh:

Oh, I finally joined CAFCNA too.

Anyone looking for a gently used 2004 Av z66 around Dallas, reach out to me.

Hey guys been here for a couple months forgot to say hey. I bought a 07 Avalanche about 4 months ago and love the thing. I actually bought from a Ford dealership. It is a 6.0 with 4.10 gears and it is so comfortable to drive around. I didnt relize how much my little Sonoma truck beat me up on longer drives. The heated seats are great when my back is sore and those colder mornings not to mention the remote start. I have only had to replace the air shocks in the back so far. I changed the compressor first and realized later the bladders on shocks were gone :E:. I am going to change front headlights kind of scratched up and the grill becaue chrome has some kind of staining on it. I replaced multidisc player with a double din unit. The only down side with that is rear senors dont work as well, I knew I should have put rear camera in while I had the chance. So headlights, grill and back up camera is next.

BadTA00/Brad
New guy here.  I finally decided to park my Trans Am after eighteen and a half years. She had become my daily driver to and from work at a Paper Mill and is need of serious work and restoration. After Hurricane Florence (slightly flooded the T/A) and hunting season I decided that I needed something a little more utilitarian and could carry the whole family. I decided on the Avalanche because of the roominess for the family, the capability  to tow a trailer, for the lawn mower and gokart, and the truck bed to carry gas cans.
I searched from mid November until earlier this month. The previous owner had painted the black plastic in the back body color and removed the roof rails.
Overall I am happy with the purchase but getting use to being higher off the ground will take a little time.

Just picked up my 2013 BDE LTZ White Diamond about 2 hours ago.  71,600 on the ODO.

I wish the LTZ was available in plain white instead of the White Diamond... I have had that color once before and if there are ever any repairs... matching is a major problem.

In looking over the hardware, How do I determine what is the most recent Nav database for my truck?  When I look up my version it has 20.11.03  Does anyone know where I can look up this code to see what it means?  I am pretty confident it is not November 3, 2020.

This is a one-owner truck imported from Canada and my guess is that the Nav data was the original installed when the truck was new.

Also, I would appreciate suggestions on where to look for the most "reasonably" priced update disc for the Nav System.

Interestingly enough, the "CD" slot above the NAV screen actually says it is a DVD... does this thing play commercial DVD's?  (mine has the sunroof, but does Not have the entertainment system).

I have discovered that the compressor that adjusts the suspension seems to have taken some rock damage and is not functional.  I have ordered a replacement compressor... have any of you folks changed yours?  I was curious if it was much of a job.

I plan on ordering the factory skid plate that the Z71 trucks come with... just in case, even though I do not have any wild adventures planned.
