Afraid not, I don't get off until the 5th. So I miss it by a few days. Leaving here on the 6th for Tennesse. I need to plan my vacations ahead of time. My vacations for the year are made in April, maybe now that my wife doesn't work it will make things easier.

Finally added amber DRL's a few weeks back,  about to add a black carbon vinyl cover on the front emblem, as well as a "avalanche" third break-light sticker! Thanks for the ideas and nice to see Canadian owners, there's about 3 avalanche's at my college, disappointed to not see the amber DRL's though!

Maybe I missed it, but what are amber DRL's.   As well, do you have the small third brake-light or the really long one thats on the ones with the painted cladding.

Most members change the white (clear) DRLs to Amber to identify club members. Bulb is 3157/4157 (NALL) amber long life. MAKE SURE you get long life bulbs the 07+ are a pain in the a$$ to change.

Thanks. From what I hear those and the headlight bulb are a major pain to change.

Headlight and turn signal bulbs... YES
DRL bulbs, not so bad.

I have done quite a few by simply removing the 10mm bolts holding in the top of the grill, and the top 2 on each headlight bucket.
Then you just pull everything out far enough to reach behind and twist out the old DRL bulb and twist in the new one.

This approach works for most people...
but NOT if you look like this!!!!!

I've done headlight bulbs without removing the whole assembly. It is painful but can be done. I've since gone back to stock brightness bulbs. Those silver star bulbs only last a year. That's not enough time to heal....
