Hi All,  I have been lurking and enjoying this site for a while now.  I bought my AV a little over a month ago.  I love it.  I am in Houston.  I see a lot of members who are in or near Houston.  I have yet to see any amber DRL's, but I keep looking.  I signed up through Pay Pal to be a supporting member.  I see there are some issues.  I haven't received any form of acknowledgement for over a month now.  I really like this group and hope the issues are resolved soon.

Welcome Q. Ignore the naysayers and enjoy the Site. That Green is a beautiful color. I had a Polo Green Sierra before I bought my Av.

Thanks,  I like the green, also.  If the dealer had a yellow in stock, I would have gone for that, but I am not complaining.  I haven't done any modding, yet.  I am a single parent to a beautiful little 2 year old girl.  Working full time, taking care of a home, and a child barely leaves time to keep the AV clean.  BTW, my name is Quang (that is where the Q comes from).  Most people call me Wayne.  I am American, but I have a Vietnamese step-family.  (Texan by choice.)  My little girl loves the AV.  She can see outside much better than she could in the previous auto.

I spent untold amounts on adding LCD screens, rims, underbody lights, cd player, subwoofers...It's incredible how much more I enjoy the Avalanche.  


You'll fit in nicely around here.

Just picked up my Av last Wednesday and I couldn't be happier with it. Here's a pic. I have yet to see any other WBH models driving around here in Maryland. I have noticed that a lot of people who don't like the Av because of the cladding change their mind once they see one of the WBH models.

I'd love to get feedback on the Avalanche, as I am looking at buying one or possibly an SUV.  Can you provide direction?

The simplest advice is to think of some words and use the search function. There is a ton of information here.
Stay away from the mod sites unless you want to start spending money in advance  ;)

Well, I got my AV in December 2002 and I have had some road time to check it out.  I guess I was hooked about five minutes after the dealer gave me the keys and told me to take it home for the weekend.  It was about five minutes later I realized what a piece of crap my Dodge Ram truck was.  Truly remarkable machine.  The dark gray metallic shows dirt more, and spots from the car wash, but worth the trouble cause it has a standing still kick butt look.  Don't know about the rest of you but mine rides as good as any Caddy I have ever ridden in.  And no probs getting into freeway traffic or down dirt roads in the Hill Country of Central Texas.  As to the consumer reports dis---I canceled my subscription years ago.  Man did not climb to the top of the food chain to eat Tofu and give me something around me baby and my rear end not sitting on the pavement.  Awesome truck for my purposes.  And yeah, have gone through the "change for a dollar"routine with my neighbors.   They were very surprised how quick the thing converts. And my son, "Why are you buying that at your age?"  Since then, he has borrowed it to haul some stuff and other things. Now he wants one so bad he can taste it and his wife won't let him have one.  I love it!!  Oh, my wife?  Geez!!  Have to hide the other set of keys!!  ;D

Re: Re: ARCHIVED: New Members Say Hello & Post Here First

Hey all just stopped in. I've had my Arrival Blue WBH Z71 AV 1500 for about 4 weeks now and can say that without a doubt this is coolest truck on the street. Bought it with dealer installed 33's BFG's on 16" AR's, chrome nerf bar, rain/wind and bug deflectors. Had to get rid of my 91 Camaro to get it but havent missed it for a minute. (got to keep my Garnet Red 69 SS though and it should haul nicely behind my big blutruk.) Since the intial purchase price shock it will be a while b4 I can start modifying it at all but am interested in the Snug top that I have seen on a few, I coach traveling 11 yr old baseball and do lots of hunting this would be a great conversion to have for road trips and such. Who makes it and where can I find them. On a side note I have noticed a lot of posts taking shots at the WBH. I just wanted to let you all know that I have been able to change my attitude (as well as my altitude) about the Cladded AVs (would never have bought one but hey now I'm converted) and have seen some really nice ones on the sight. Dont be a hater for change because this style will be a big success for the Bow Tie Faithful and will only serve to make the AV one of the most sought after trucks on the road. Why hide it out... Be it cladded or nekkid, share the love!!   ;D

This site is a great find! Just bought a dark green '03 Z71 w/chrome sidesteps & tow package. I was initially in the market for a Ford SuperCrew (another Chevy convert!). Loved the Avalanche the first time I saw it up close and drove it.  Definately a much better ride! I got a family vehicle, pickup truck & and off-road machine in one awesome package. I'm somewhat concerned about the 4WD transfer case problem I read about in another thread. It sounds like Chevy has it figured out though if the problem comes up. One easy question... how can I determine the build date for my AV?

Got my AV five weeks ago.  Got the Snugtop today.  I spent a lot of time on here before buying it and really appreciate all the wonderful ideas and information.  Special thanks to all of you that responded to my specific emails.  (I chnged my screen name from operkins.)

Sorry I missed the GTG in SanMarcos last weekend, but I had to go to Abilene.  Hope to make one in Central Texas soon.

Hi,

Newbie here from Florida...first post.  I just picked up my '03 Yellow Z-66.  Leather/stereo, running boards, roof rack, and towing package.  I've been lurking around the site for awhile.  Fantastic source of information, tips, and humor.  I'll have to take a pic and figure out how to post it in my sig.  

Regards,

JoBu
