Title: Michigan New Members "CHECK IN" and Welcome Page
Post by: MS03 2500 on March 4, 2007, 10:52:37 AM
I thought the Michigan members should have a "New Member Welcome Page" so I am posting this.

New members click Reply and tell us about yourselves, what area are you at and about your AV or whatever you drive.

Sirshopolot one our other Michigan cruise coordinators would like to say
    :welcome: to all the new members and invite you to check out the

Michigan 2012 GTG Itinerary (http://chevyavalanchefanclub.com/cafcna/index.php/topic,131058.0.html)  for up and coming local GTG's and events.

I signed up awhile ago but why not say hi to my fellow Michiganians. I live in Ludington and tagged my first AV today. I have seen one AV in town here with Ambers but I have never seen anything about them on the website. We were supposed to go to the GTG in Dundee but I made a huge mistake. I asked my wife what we were doing on April 7th. THAT'S MY ANNIVERSARY. We may still go. I hope to help with a GTG at Silver Lake Sand Dunes or here in Ludington. We have the Ludington State Park which is one of the most visited parks in the state that might be of interest. Some people don't like to take their vehicles into the sand dunes as the sand gets into everything. Oh well I'm glad I'm part of the club though.

A coworker just bought an AV and joined the club, maybe he'll post here and introduce himself if I bump this subject to the top. He knows who he is, he had a list of mods before he bought the truck. I bet the list is growing  :cool:

I think I did things a little backwards......... Hi I'm new .......name is Jeff ....... have an 04 Z71 Charcoal (but usually covered in mud). I got the NP8 trans and 4"10 gears from the factory, 33" Kumho Road Ventures, tinted, also have the GM tent (and its awesome)no mods yet but I just ordered a Volant intake and plan on doing JBA headers and Borla cat back exhaust this summer. I'm also planning on buying HP Tuner. I haven't done the mods yet because I still had my factory warranty but that's over so its time to squeeze some more juice out of that 5.3.

I am originally from Los Angeles CA my wife and I moved here 7/06. I am newly married 10/21/06. We love to camp, off road, boat, meet new people, get drunk and pretty much have a good time.

I think I have met a few people on the GTG post but I wanted to make it official and say HI to all that I haven't met yet. I cant wait to meet some fellow AV enthusiasts and make some new friends.

I'm a pretty good wrench (mechanic) so don't hesitate to ask me for help I'm always willing to get dirty and bust a knuckle or two. I live in Wayland (near GR) and will be moving to Kentwood towards the end of the year.

I guess that's it will keep everyone updated on mods and info I find out about the AV and or any cruises that are coming.

I will be posting a poss GTG at Kool Chevrolet in June later tonight. :B:

Freebie & the Bean were partners, TKE's Lady didn't make sense since there was no more TKE. I didn't name Freebie, another Michigan member did that. Freebie and the Bean was a hit movie.

Hey all, just stumbled across this site looking for goodies for my new Avy, an 07 Black LTZ, loaded. Dealr said it was the most expensive vehicle on the lot xcept for a Vette when I bought it. I think it has every option available. Tokk me a month to learn how to use all the electronics! I'm shopping for a CatBack and Cold Air right now, all I've done so far is a nice set of mats, and a bug shield. I'm up in Fenton, south of Flint, and work in Romulus. Would be interested in some events in between the two. I'm also a Harley rider, Sledder, and a working on Fox Body Mustang right now too.

I grew up in Holly when Fenton was the big city (they had a McDs, K-Mart and more than one traffic light). We've done a few GTGs at BW3 in Novi which would be right in your path to work. I don't know when we'll do Novi again but I'm sure we will. Alot going on this summer, the cider mill cruise in the fall we've done a few times is in your neck of the woods.

Thanks for the welcome Flint4X4, Freebie and SirShopsolot ( funny ) I've been dinging my credit limits myself it seems lately. I'll try and swing by the deal in Flint Saturday, I'm putting a chrome swingarm on a buddy's V-Rod in the morning, as long as we don't have any problems I can stop by in Flint. Need to detail the AVY as well before I did a meet.
Novi is an EASY stop for me. I'm actually in Deerfield Township, south of Linden, it's the boonies, but only 10 minutes away from Silver Parkway.
I'll be checking this site frequently to keep up on events. Looking forward to seeing some tricked out AVY's. It's always nice to see what others have bought before I brake out my wallet! :thumbsup:

Stop by a GTG sometime. You've heard of southern hospitality or southern charm ? It's true for the most part but I'd like to think us midwestern folks aren't far behind. (it's tougher for us to hang out on the porch when it's 00 with a sturdy wind) †;)

Well  as my first post I thank you.  I go by Silverbudman and I just bought a new 2007 Av LTZ and I live near Jackson Michigan and for the first day of driving this unit I couldn't be happier.  It might take me a while to get used to working on this site so I hope all will be willing to work with me on this and also my daughter who lives in NC.  And this is my new ride.   :D

Good idea! most local newspapers will put a small club notice in their paper for free. I have used this in the past to draw some locals in. I nice little GTG in a public place with a notice in the paper before the GTG may do wonders!

Hi all,

I am new to the club.  I live in Vassar, near Frankenmuth and work in Auburn Hills.  Had a 02 for a few years and did some reading as a Guest but decided to join when we bought a 07.  It is a Silver Birch (SilverGhost) LT.  The only options are locking rear end and the 6 CD radio.  I went to the dealer to buy a Silverado but when they gave me $4,750 off from my dadís GMS price I couldn't turn it down.  I LOVE the AV!  It is so versatile.  Friday I bought some trim molding that was 12 feet long and it fit inside with room to spare.  Would have never been able to do that with a Silverado!

Already added skid plates, a Flowmaster 50 and the K&N CAI on it.  I love the sound. 

My wife calls it my mid-life crisis! 

Look forward to attending some GTGs.

PS  Yes, I installed my Ambers.

Thank you.  The AV!  When I had my 02 we went 4-5 times with it and had a blast.  This will be the first trip with the 07.  I would like to take my quad but no room.  I plan on taking some video and lots of pictures.  

If anyone is going this weekend, look for the ambers!

That's not good! 

The last time we went it was peaked and I now have a picture of my 02 with both the front and back suspension fully extended.   I had to crawl out the window because the door would not open. :E:

I will take it a little easier on the new one and probably only hit the holes.

I thought the Michigan members should have a "New Member Welcome Page" so I am posting this.

New members click Reply and tell us about yourselves, what area are you at and about your AV or whatever you drive.

Sirshopolot one our other Michigan cruise coordinators would like to say
    :welcome: to all the new members and invite you to check out the Michigan 2007 GTG Itinerary (http://www.chevyavalanchefanclub.com/cafcna/index.php/topic,77780.0.html) for up and coming local GTG's and events.

Good to see someone else from the Saginaw area.  Hope you can make it to the Ren Fest this Saturday.  This will be my first GTG.  I guess that makes me a GTG virgin.  I am a little nervous.   :4:

you can change your Screen Name if you ask Admin, all posts you made will reflect your new name but we'd still read HChupp if we used PM (private message). Just pick a name you want to keep so as not to bother the staff too much.

I know alot of people's original S/Ns, mine says FlintAvA because it took multiple tries to register.

You newbs watch out for these Michigan members...They're great people, but the initiation can be brutal.

They make you drink green drinks that hypnotize you, contort you into odd shapes on a polka dotted mat, and even break your bones if you don't get it right. And that's just the female members!!!

But it's all worth it to hang with the cool crowd!!! :thumbsup: :4:

It's alright...  :4:

I'm trying to figure out if I can afford to keep it by selling my other two vehicles, a 2000 Trans Am and a 1995 Eagle Talon. I have this truck for sale, but I realized that people are more impressed by a fast 6000 lb truck than a 3200 lb car. And I'm already fast, getting faster.

I'm going to try to make it out to Livonia tomorrow. Mind you, my truck is dirty as hell but it's fun. :)

That would rock. It's a black 2000 Trans Am WS6, it has about 75K or so on it. I have an LS2 engine, custom cam, shorty headers, 6 speed with upgraded hydraulics, lightweight flywheel, Spec 3 clutch. I'm asking $16K for it. I'll try to get some pics of it. I have a spare set of wheels/tires for it too.

I'll be over in Livonia at the Auto-Cover GTG, I have plans this afternoon so I can't even stay there that long.

I need to put the car together, I just got the parts for the new engine for it. The LS2 I have is virtually new, and the T56 in it have 500 miles on it. The interest on the car will determine how fast I get it together. :)

If he is interested, PM me with questions. :) If I can sell it, I keep my Avalanche. If he wants an Avalanche, I'm selling mine for $12,500 (FS section has the ad).

Thanks for the welcome.  I'm in Oxford and work in Davison.  My company (Hensley Mfg. ) makes towing products, mostly for the RV market.  I love the Av.  It's been my "perfect" tow vehicle.  

I get around to a lot of RV shows as well as SEMA, so I get to see some cool stuff.  Maybe I'll catch some of you at the Novi RV show next month (Tampa next week, anyone up for sunshine?).

In my past life I was an engineer with Ford/Visteon, Chrysler, and did a lot of contract work for GM.  I dug under the wall two years ago and escaped the auto industry.  The RV industry is no picnic, either, but at least I'm in charge of my own destiny!

Look forward to talking with you folks.  See ya on the road.

I get around to a lot of RV shows as well as SEMA, so I get to see some cool stuff.  Maybe I'll catch some of you at the Novi RV show next month (Tampa next week, anyone up for sunshine?).

In my past life I was an engineer with Ford/Visteon, Chrysler, and did a lot of contract work for GM.  I dug under the wall two years ago and escaped the auto industry.  The RV industry is no picnic, either, but at least I'm in charge of my own destiny!

Look forward to talking with you folks.  See ya on the road.

 :welcome: to the best club on the planet!!!  We have a lot of fun at GTG's!!

What can you do for a 1971 Winnabego???

Hello, my name is Robber, I am in Lansing, and I bought my first Avalanche today.   It is a 2002 Black, 1500 4WD.   I have had it for about 6 hours and so far I am real pleased with it :)
We do a lot of camping, and we have out-grown the pop up. . .  so the first step was to get a bigger TV. . .  so now we are all set for the camper shop at MSU next week.

Cheers!
Robber

New member Jack here.   I am from The Clarkston Area.   I currently have an 06 Siverado Crew Cab, but lease is up soon.   Planning on buying an 03 or 04 Cladded AV sometime soon.   What a wealth of information on the site - well done folks.   After acquisition - I hope to attend a GTG or two as time permits.  

I did post this also in the 02-06 new member pinned thread, and ask a request of you all - what specific to the AV should I look for while shopping?  by compiling a list it will make shopping that much easier.   you help is greatly appreciated.

Hi from Almont.  I just purchased my first avalanche yesterday.  Actually, it is the second one I've bought but the first personal one I've owned.  It is a 2005 Dark Gray metallic.  So far, I love it.  I purchased one for the fire department that I work for for our fire marshal to use during inspections.  I liked it when I drove it off the lot and back to the station and started looking for my own.  Looking forward to meeting some from this area.

Hey everyone, Just wanted to say I think it's great to be a part of the avalanche fan club. I picked up my 08 deep ruby metallic Z71 a couple of months ago and have no complaints at all. I am a Captain on a small Volunteer Fire Department in south east Michigan, so I not only drive my avy for pleasure but also as  a emergency response vehicle. My first mod was to deck out the avy with LED emergency lights on top, grill and rear. you can definitely see me coming and going. Now I am in the process of installing a 2 inch leveling kit with new tires and rims, once it is complete and I figure out how to post pics I will do just that. I also am planning to attend the get together at cabelas next month. hope to see ya there.

I'm on the eastside near the Cultural Center where they hold the Sloan Summer Fair and Golden Memories auto shows. It's probably still $5 entry, I'll post the dates for this years car shows. Back to the Bricks is Flint's version of Woodward Dream Cruise, it's growing but easier parking and close to home if you don't have the time or want to avoid the crowds/traffic on Woodward.

Just found the site and glad to see a group here in MI.  I have a 2004 1500 with the Z-71 package and hasn't changed much since I drove it away from the dealers, except for a recent tranfer case change.  It gets exciting drving on I-94 in rush hour traffic when the tranfer case shifts itself into neutral without warning.

Hey fellow Avy drivers, I am from the Plainwell area.  I drive a 04 pewter avalanche with a 6" BDS Lift with 35" BFG All Terrain Tko's.  I have mossy oak highlights on the truck (bug deflector, and window rain deflectors on all the windows). I have been looking for an Avalanche club here in the area.  I see that you guys go to silver lake.  I love going up there and running the dunes with my truck and my quad.  We have a mud run that happens at walls bear swamp mud run in Allegan.  I am planning to add a Flowmaster Super 40 exhaust with duals.  My Avy is fully loaded, it is the Z71 off-road edition.  Well I guess drop me a message and I will get back with you. :B: :needhug:

3157/4157 NALL and I find them at Advance Auto for about $5.50 a pair, seems like Auto Zone is always out of them. Also check behind the clear 3157/4157 because the stock boys don't always pay attention. NALL = new amber long life

I like my local Advance Auto, really helpful and knowledgeable clerks. Like Gilroy's Hardware a small Michigan chain. Be prepared to wait sometimes but you can discuss your home improvement or truck upgrades/repairs with clerks & customers or offer them some tips of your own.

I leave the wife at home when I go to an auto or hardware store  ::)

hehe Im determaned to find you 9456B!! hehe ....I normally jump on 96 at Burkhart about 6:30 am for the insane drive to Willow Run Airport most mornings and get back about 5 pm.   Did you get Ambers in?  Not yet, my DRLs are 4114's and I can't seem to find them in amber anywhere.  I did get my rear bumper slightly modified last week when a soccer mom in a Jeep full of kids decided that she really didn't want to be on M-14 east and cut back onto 23 south and ran me off the road in the 7 am traffic.  While trying to keep the front end pointed in the right direction I caught one of the fence posts with the reflectors the MDOT puts just barely off the pavement with the edge of the bumper.

Hi all:

Names Scott.  I (we) just moved back to Battle Creek after 16 years in Columbus, Ohio as a transplanted wolverine.  First 10 years were a great time to be a Wolverine in the heart of "Buckeye nation" as OSU fans call themselves (I call them Bucknuts as they're way over the top fanatics), then we lost bragging rights.  :-(   Anyway, I just joined the site a day or two ago and have enjoyed it immensely.  I purchased a loaded 2005 Avalanche LT Z71 last summer.  I love how versatile it is and take advantage of that versatility as much as possible.  I haven't had time to fully explore the website but love what I've seen so far (tons of info).  Hope to attend some of the gtg's and meet some fellow Av owners.  Also, when I get around to modifying my Av further, I hope to lean on some of you out there to draw on your experience with local shops, mechanics, etc.  So far the Av has a bug shield, window vents and Flowmaster dual exhaust.  Better get back to work.  Talk to ya' all later.

Hi all, Moved from VA to the UP last summer, Retired from the NAVY.

Really enjoyed it this far, getting back into the woods has been great. Bought a couple of used Polaris sleds, a New Quad, bow, rifle and a 97 K1500 to get me into the woods.

I have not visited the fourms in a while but get excited when I see a set of Ambers going do the road.

Hi, my name is Chico. I just bought a used (new to me) 2003 Avalanche. It only had 50,000 miles on it and runs great. I found this forum while looking for some questions on the Avalanche. I live in Owosso. I have only had the truck a couple of weeks, but I really like it already.

It is a Black Z-71. I just bought some new rims and tires for it already. I will try and get some pics in the next couple of days of it and post some. I hope to put a new stereo and subs in it, within the next couple of months.

Later.

No, I dont have the ambers yet. I saw some on ebay I would like to buy though. I hope to get a new stereo within the next couple of weeks.

A store on ebay that is selling radio's, says that some newer chevrolet cars need some kinda of adapter to install after market radios. I have searched around for this adapter, but can not seem to find it. I dont even know what I am looking for really. Does anyone know the name of this adapter, or where to look for one at on the net? Thanks.
Title: Re: Michigan's Official New Members Welcome Page
Post by: racer811 on September 17, 2008, 06:56:58 AM

Title: Re: Michigan's Official New Members Welcome Page
Post by: RonJ on September 17, 2008, 09:43:23 AM
Also for the GM adaptor you could go to bestbuy or circuit city and ask for the GM radio adapter for your year of Avalanche and theyll sell you the right one. Last adapter i bought was no more then 40$ is i remember right. Also the bulbs, just hit up Autozone or a local auto supplies. They'll tell you which bulb it is. I use the new Silverstars Amber FRLs...they are very nice... not sure what the number is tho. BTW the silverstars are nice but about twice as much as the stock Ambers.
Title: Re: Michigan's Official New Members Welcome Page
Post by: BigC Mich on September 17, 2008, 11:58:16 AM
You can also pick up the sylvania's at any Wal-Mart or Meijers.

Post by: racer811 on September 17, 2008, 12:18:09 PM
I am going to get some of those amber bulbs right now. Hopefully I will find some.

I also just bought a used adapter on ebay that should work for the truck. I used the link you guys gave me above, and found the model that I think I need. They wanted like $75.00 or something at crutchfield. So this one seemed pretty good and looked in good shape.

Here is a link to the adapter I bought on ebay.

Title: Re: Michigan's Official New Members Welcome Page
Post by: racer811 on September 19, 2008, 06:57:45 AM
I went looking for those amber bulbs the other day and had a hard time finding them. Walmart and Meijers did not have them. So I went to auto zone and all I found was just a regular 4157 bulb. This bulb had no kinda of tint to it at all. They were super busy, so I did not ask for help. I went to Napa next and I did ask for help there. This guy was trying to sell me a bulb that was Orange in color, he said that Amber is orange not bluish.

I had him look up the part #4157A ST and he could not find this part #. I told him to look up this forum and showed him the part # that you guys posted. He still could not find that bulb. He ended up ordering me some bulbs that were part #3157 I think. He showed me a pic of them in a book and they did have this kinda soft bluish chrome tint to them. Will the bulbs have some kinda tint to them, or will they just look normal.

The new bulbs that he is ordering me are only $7.00, so I will not be out much if they dont look differant than stock. I also did a search on google trying to find the 4157A ST bulb by sylvania and I could not find it by doing a search there. Do you think you guys could show me a link on where to buy these bulbs, incase the guy at Napa is selling me the wrong stuff?

Also, what are the star light or something like that bulbs? I saw them at AutoZone and they were more expensive than the normal bulbs.

Sorry about all the questions, I am a newbie. Thanks Chico.

The bulbs I ended up getting from Napa were not what I was expecting. There were blue in color. Not bluish or iridium looking, they were blue. They say for offroad use only on the back of the pack. So I put them in any way last night. I will check them out today and see how they look. Who knows, I may like them.

I must say though, the more I look at those amber color lights, the more I am just not feeling them.

You bought the Silverstar Ambers??  I love them! only cause i got BLUE HighBeams and HID lows. The blue highbeams look good with the Amber Silverstars in my turn signals and Day time running lights.
Title: Re: Michigan's Official New Members Welcome Page
Post by: racer811 on September 20, 2008, 17:15:05 PM
Yep your right. I got the blue lights. I really like these bulbs also. I have the blue low beam head lights in my truck already. So I also like the way the blue lights look also. I found some blue high beam bulbs on ebay that I plan on getting also. I also found some blue xenon bulbs for the inside of the cab also. Turns all your dome lights into fancy blue.

I saw 2 avalanches driving through Owosso today and both of them had those amber color bulbs in there day time running lights. Made me think of this forum.

One was yellow, but it had this black vinyl type design along the whole side of the truck.

The yellow one that I saw had a bigger vinyl design decal on it than the one in the pic above. The other avalanche that I saw with ambers was a red one. The red one did have cladding on it. There were no other markings on the red one to help seperate from a normal looky av.

I saw both of these vehicles around 1:00pm. I saw both of these av's on the main drag in town, or M-21.

You will see ambers time to time on non members trucks... there are a 2 or 3 I see around here all the time, including my trucks twin, that have ambers... but they never respond to my waving or hanging out with window trying to get their attention  :4:

Flyineagle may have changed decals  ???  Owosso is quite small and they didn't build alot of yellow AVs, my Arrival Blue color was used in '03 but half of them are '04 model. The sunset orange, sunburst orange and forest green are colors you don't see often either.

I have also seen 2 Yellow Avys in Owosso.  I chased down one of them on the way out to the second eaglesnest GTG last year thinking it was flyineagle but it turned out not to be him.

Hey gang,

Just joined the Michigan Avalanches site as well. Thanks for the info and invite.

Ron, my Av is a 2003 Black Z71 with cladding, but I did see that white Av as well. No idea whose it is? I saw the amber DRL's too. Hmmm, maybe there are more of us in this area than we know.....lol.

Checking on the date for the Spicers GTG. I don't have enough Mods to make it worth your time, but I am working on it, I don't think there would be much to see on mine, but looking for great ideas!

You go the GTG to meet new Avalanche owners and maybe get ideas for mods :) I got soo many ideas for mods at my 1st GTG that I am hooked now! I got the Mod Bug! You dont have to mod your Avalanche to go to a GTG, ALL Avalanches are welcome :) :thumbsup:

You don't have to have mods to attend a GTG, but there will be plenty of Avs with mods to look at and hear  :4:  to give you ideas for winter projects.

It's the people that you meet and make friends with that make GTG's great!  :thumbsup:

Hope to see ya there  :wave:

We like stock AVs, helps set off the comparisons to modded ones. Another way to look at is you have a clean canvas on which to work and you can look at some trucks to see what you like and don't like and get a warm (hopefully it's not snowing yet)  :welcome:  to the club

Hey Gang,

Passed a Red AV with amber DRL's yesterday and waved, around the Grand River and Latson area, was that anyone here?

No, that wasn't me in Auburn Hills on Friday.

Did the Mag mod, had three screws already in place along driver's side compartment, so made mounting the clamps pretty easy. One mod down, one hundered + to go....lol. Next up, replace or redo my front grill bowtie....

I am making negotiations with the wife now for the Spicer's GTG. She doesn't quite get the Av club, but I think she is just a little jealous because they don't have such a thing for Yukon owners.... :thumbsup: Besides, I don't give her grief about any of that scrapbooking stuff she does, right?

Post by: Flint4x4 on October 5, 2008, 06:17:53 AM
My wife still doesn't get it and I've had an Avalanche for 7+ years  ::) 

I drag her along when I can and she has made many friends.
Wendy has been to the orchard every time and the spring Cabela's GTGs.
Sometime I go alone or take a friend to different meets.

Doug1, way cool your wife has a Yukon because many tips & tricks here apply to it too. I build Silverado and drive Chevy trucks but there is always someone here knows something I don't whether it's a problem I never encountered or simple instructions on how to remove/clean the MAF for improved MPG

Red one with amber huh? Have not seen that one around town. If you spot ambers you can post it in the threads for spoting Ambers or create a new one. Heres one I created for LivingSton County.
Spoted Ambers in Livingston County (http://www.chevyavalanchefanclub.com/cafcna/index.php/topic,103334.0.html)

Awesome to hear about the mag light mod. I havnt gotten around to doing that one! You come to a GTG and youll be going "I wanna do that one , I wanna do that one!"  :laugh:
If you click the "HOME" button above the forums next to Responses, scroll down. Go to the main section that is labeled "Avalanche Owners Zone" in that seaction theres different links and Child boards where you can find lots of mods for interior/exterior/4x4/ maintance and care...ect.... Browse thro those forums and youll find a TON of good info!
Heres a Great Thread that list all the mods for you and there links soo you dont have to hunt down a certain mod in the forums

I say, Leave the wife at home!  :laugh: :kidding: She prolly wont get it if she comes to a GTG but maybe in time she'll see its not all about the trucks any more, its about the friends you make and the fun you have :) :thumbsup:

There will be several ladies there for her to get to know.  Tell her my wife loves to scrapbook so they will have something to talk about.  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:


That's funny.  My wife has an entire room set up with scrapbooking "stuff" in it.  I still haven't seen a finished scrapbook, but like a t-shirt she bought at a scrapbooking convention says "My husband lets me buy all the scrapbooking stuff I can hide" is right.  She buys scrapbooking "stuff", I get to buy mods  :thumbsup:

Hey tell me something...How have I had my Avalanche 5 years, been in Livingston County the whole time and never been tagged??? I just caught the thread on tagging and I have seen a few of those Av's, but must have just missed you guys...lol. Is it the cladding? Am I not welcome because of the cladding? That's discrimination you know. And I don't want any sympathy tags now either :kidding:

Where do you guys post most at, this site or on Michigan Avalance? Want to know which one to go to first!

Took me 3 years to find the club online by accident (had an AV 7+ years now). Some people think you're a salesman when you promote the club although no purchase is necessary to join. Some don't use won't use the internet while others won't because the service is lousy in thier area.
Chances of getting tagged in Michigan are better now than they were 5 years or even 2-3 years ago  :thumbsup:

Hello to all in  Michigan.  Am new Av owner. Bought a 08 Z71 Ruby Red in June.  Love the truck. Did an east coast road trip with wife, kid and mother in-law in August.  What a great way to travel. Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusests, Connecticut, Rhode Island,  and New York.  Not one complaint on the whole trip about comfort.

Im sure the East siders would caravan! Depending the route I might be down for caravaning! The best thing about GTGs is the long line of Avalanches in a caravan! hehe ok maybe thats not the best thing about a GTG but its fun to do! hehe

Talk about peer pressure......Just kiddin.... I was just doin some lurkin.... Checkin out the site a bit.
I am from the Downriver area and I have an 08 Z71.... Love the truck...
I was on youtube and ran across some straight pipe videos and came in here to gather up some more info on them and you know how that goes...I see Rims, lift kits, hoods and mods and get side tracked easily....
Then the reality sets in and realise all these need to be put on hold as I am a victim of the Auto industry tanking and outsourcing...
Holding on thanks to the wife having a stable job in the medical field...... for now.
Hope all is well with all of you and I'll be checking in again...

Hi All,

I posted in the new section and got invited to post in here. I live on the North East side of Grand Rapids. I just purchased a 2006 Avalanche with 30k miles and love it. I picked it up last Wednesday and Thursday drove it to Indy and back. The milage is a little scary (16 mpg), but all in all I love it.... I purchased a house August of 07 that has a long up hill driveway and had to park my car through winter last year. This year I needed to drive to Chicago and Indy and with the weather the way it's been the last few weeks decided to buy a 4X4 that would not have me worried about the weather. It's fully loaded, Leather, Nav, DVD, etc... I now have no fears of my driveway.

Wow haven't even finished typing and getting replies already. Thanks for the welcome!

I look forward to talking with you all.

I appreciate all the technical help and advise found on this site.

I'll keep looking for information on future GTG (took me a few minutes to figure out that that meant).

Perhaps I should get the amber running lights so it looks like I 'belong'.  :thumbsup:

Or...is there another secret club signal I should know about?  :cool:

Hello everyone,

I'm so new to Avalanches that I don't even have mine titled yet. In fact, I don't even pick it up until tomorrow at 9:30 AM!

It's a red 2006 Ave 4x4 with 32,000 miles.

(http://ws6transam.org/Gallery/albums/2006-Chevy-Avalanche/ave1.jpg)

I'm looking forward to checking out the site, and maybe hit a GTG or two.

Title: Re: Michigan's Official New Members Welcome Page
Post by: ws6transam on March 4, 2009, 11:22:18 AM
I am in Haslett, near East Lansing.
I'm looking forward to playing with this truck, as we like to haul campers, snowmobiles,  motorcycles, and of course my Trans Am once & a while. That stuff was difficult with my '95 Grand Cherokee. Plus, my kids are getting taller and they don't fit as comfortably as they used to. My wife loves the look of the Ave, and wanted the Avalanche, but she's intimidated by it's size. I think she'll come around soon enough, since she drives a Venture minivan, which I don't think is that much larger.

 :welcome: ws6transam! Nice buy! The AV looks very nice!
The Amber DRL mod is just changing your reg. white DRL(Day time running lights) to Amber bulbs. The Amber DRLs allow other Avalanche club members know you are a member of the club and the website. The DRLs come on during the day and shut off at night for your auto headlights to come on. We have alot of GTGs out by Lansing all the time. We GTG all around Michigan but Lansing has been a hot spot as its basiclly in the middle of michigan. We actually just had a GTG last weekend not 30 minutes west of Lansing. Check the Itinerary  in the main Michigan forum for GTGs all around michigan.
Again welcome to the Club
Im 30 minutes down I96 in Howell if you ever need any help with mods, I can lend a hand!

Wow, that last one in Feb looked like it would have been a lot of fun! I used to have "MODfests" at my place, years ago, for Camaroz and Firebirds. We built several 12-second cars here. In fact, maybe next year we'll hold a mini-mod here, as I have a heated garage w/ compressor, MIG welder, stereo, wireless broadband router and air hockey table. All the proper requirements for a good modfest!

In fact, I'm getting ready for some mid-winter maintenance on the car. I've got some oil pickup problems under hard acceleration so I need to swap oil pans:

Hi all,
Well it's officially mine now, It's titled, registered, and plated, and I put 150-some miles on it this afternoon. Man, this thing is a DREAM!

I also was surprised to see an average fuel consumption of 21 MPG on the way back home. That's better than I thought I'd see. Of course, that was in cruise control at exactly 70 MPH.

One thing I'm wondering though, is there any advantage to pushing the 2WD button on the console when driving around on the street?

I keep mine in 2WD at all times except in the winter.  Then I have it in "AUTO".  Plus, it is a good idea to use the 4WD once in a while just to keep it lubed!!   :thumbsup:

Most questions are already answered here somewhere, finding the answers gets more difficult the more times the same question get's asked. Don't take it as rude if you get a  "do a search" answer  :D   I simply don't answer at all if I don't have the time.

Use the PM (private message) and one of us may answer questions or direct you to where to find the answers.

It's okay, I figured out the 2WD button  ::)  Now I need to figure out how to turn on the fog lamps!!  Eh, anyway, I wanted to say thank you everyone for the great welcome. Today was spent with the car in the garage, where I put in my 3457A amber DRLs, plus stripped the paint of all its decontaminants, then laid on the first coat of Zaino show car wax. I'm about to head out there and do the next coat & let it sit overnight in my nice, dry, and heated garage.

There are two buttons to the right of the Head Light control knob.  The top one turns on the cargo lamp in the bed and the bottom one turns on the fog lights.   :thumbsup:

Cool deal! It sure is fun learning a new vehicle! Foglamps: CHECK. Rear cargo light: CHECK I didn't even know about the cargo light.... What a surprise! 

Well, I have finished applying the second coat of Zaino car polish tonight and it's looking really, really bright. The prev. owner worked for a road comission so there was white road paint speckles all over the truck. The only way to get them off was slow, light wipes of the paint with enamel reducer  :o over the whoel surface of the vehicle! Well, it cleaned off everything & stripped off any old waxes. So, then I applied a base coat if wax prep, then did two coats of polymer show car polish. I may go do a third coat of pure carnuba later, I am not sure. However this is now one slippery truck!

48 hours later, and the Avvie is ready for it's debut. Now we only need to figure out where we'll take it first! I'm thinkin'.... Lake Michigan.

That sucks.

If GM customer service was unhelpful I would recommend trying another stealership.  I've heard stories of members who went to another dealership and were able to get things repaired/replaced that another dealership wouldn't take care of. 

Is this the number you called for GM Customer Assistance!  1-866-790-5700 

Also post in the  Chevrolet Avalanche Problems, Questions & Answers  |  Problems: Exterior (http://www.chevyavalanchefanclub.com/cafcna/index.php/board,155.0.html) thread, maybe someone there has had the same problem.

Good luck.  :thumbsup:

I found this site looking for mods for my 08 Z71.  I got mt truck in April '08, replacing a 06 F-150, and have only dropped a K&N air filter, so far.  I will be replacing the Cold Air Intake and the Cat Back Exhaust this summer.   :thumbsup:

I live in the Westland area.  Look forward to talking with everyone soon.

The average life of a member here is 2 years and they drop off the map. Either they sell it or just quit posting. It's forum some folks come here to ask a question about what's wrong with my AV maybe 2 post till they get their answer and never see them again. That's why we should welcome new members and make them family. Encourage them to to post.

That's life according to Hugz :4:

Hi all, I have a 03 Sunset Orange Z71 named "Clarisse". I went to Nashville, Tenn. to get her, I live between Battle Creek and Nashville (MI). The only thing I've done to her so far is change the standard tail light bulbs to a set of spinner LED's, they change direction every 3-4 seconds as long as your lights are on. When my husband gets back with her, he took her fishing for 9 days to the UP, I'm going to rip out the leather seat skins. The new interior will be tan micro suede and copper carbon fiber. Replace the vinyl on the door panels with the copper and do a little extra painting on the speaker covers. I'm not sure on the headliner and visors yet and so far the carpet is staying. I've already made custom floor mats with my business logo in them so most of the carpet is covered and in excellent shape. Oh yeah, I do custom interiors for show cars, boats, cycles, etc., been doing it since 1980. I had a 99 F150 4x4 quad cab with custom interior and give her to my husband when I got Clarisse. I got on the web site because I was having trouble with my tail light and come here to see if anyone else had the same problem. I finally got it figured out after 3 days and a lot of frustration. 20 minutes after I got it done my husband took off on his trip with her and called me from above the bridge and said the voltage meter was pegged all the way over so now I have to wait till he gets her back to start over again. He won't touch her because he knows how I feel about anyone else touching her. I'm going to try hard and keep up with you all but if I disappear for a couple of weeks in November you'll know it's deer season and I'll be freezen my butt off in the woods. You guys have all been great and helpfull and maybe we'll get a chance to meet ya.
Thanks for the invite, drive carefully and always remember "Life without adventure is death."

Clarisse got her colored contacts, amber DRL'. I did notice when I changed them that the socket was black tho, is there a chance that the original bulbs are burning to hot? I have seen a lot of Chevy's with the DRL's out. I replaced mine with LED so it's no heat, and matches the rear. Over all still very,very happy with her and won't be giving her up. I'm going to try and be in Tennessee the end of October and first week of November so I won't be around for the November 7th but maybe I can catch the next one.

Everyone have a good and safe Halloween especially those with the little ones at home.

Hello, New member here.

Life long Michigan resident.  Our family loves it here.  We live in the Grand Rapids area just north of town in the country.  Wanted an Av for a long time.  We got record amount of snow last winter (I think about 130" or so)  I got stuck on our road, in our driveway, at work, and nearly killed myself multiple times on the back roads in my Acura.  I cant wait for winter to throw what it can at me while I am snug in my new Av plowing through the knee deep white stuff!

I posted the pictures of my new ride in the Av showoff album pictures 629-32. 

Regards to all members and Avalanche owners.

There are a couple ways you can post pictures.  One way is to upload them to a photo hosting website like Photobucket and paste and copy the [img] link right in your response or you can click on "Additional Options" then click Browse.  Keep in mind that if you use the Additional Options option the pictures must be under 100kb.

Well I am brand new to the Av as it was just given to me.  It is in need of a lot of TLC as it has sat and not been treated well over the years.  I will post more later as I have to go out and see what's up with my steering, it took all 250 of me to get it around the corner on the way home.  But thanks for the greeting, I will be looking for a lot of help. 

I live just west of Grand Blanc and southwest of Flint.  I am a huge Wings fan - yes even this year.  I have a beautiful 3 month old daughter, two great danes and a psycho Irish Catholic wife whom I love to death.  I work down at TARDEC on the Detroit Arsenal.  We love camping and the outdoors. I am GO BLUE, but tolerate my green friends.  Look forward to talking with you all more real soon and looking for help.

Just picked up a 2006 Z71 from South Carolina last week, though I'd say hi here before posting a bunch of questions in the other areas :D 

I worked at Bosch on the ESC for the GMT900's a spent a LOT of time in GMT800 based mules.  In that time I learned I definitely wanted an Avalanche and got very picky about options.  It took a long time to find a 2006 truck (only GMT800 year with ESC) with 4.10's that was low miles and had heated seats.  Once it came up for sale I jumped at it and took a drive south.

The truck is awesome, no flaws at all, Bermuda blue, perfect shape and GM certified used, I'm a happy camper.

Day one after getting it home I coincidentally had to carry the stereotypical Avalanche cargo of an 8' step ladder and toolbox, how cool is the midgate!  I love this thing!

Hopefully it serves me as well as my old Dodge, we'll see in 10 years and 120K more miles.  I work for the General now so no more Dodges for me anyway :thumbsup:

Hopefully it serves me as well as my old Dodge, we'll see in 10 years and 120K more miles.  I work for the General now so no more Dodges for me anyway :thumbsup:


 A BIG :welcome: to yah . check out the upcoming events here in michigan. couple of GTG's coming up soon yah might be able to make and meet the MIcrew.

I used to have an 06 Bermuda Blue but when the lease was up I turned it in for an 05 Z71 with less miles and a lot more options.  It was also 6k cheaper than buying out my lease!!

Sorry to skip out after the intro, thanks for the welcome.  My wife has driven the truck exclusively since I picked it up while I am fixing her completely smoked clutch (and main bearings while I'm in there).  Bad planning/timing on my part as I think she's falling for the Ave, I may be driving an old Honda for the foreseeable future :thumbdown:

BigC Mich, this one is totally loaded, many more options than I intended but the price was right.  I do love the color, I probably would have gone for the more basic blue (not sure what it's called) if I had had the choice but now that I see the bermuda in person I'm glad I got it.

Now the debate is to keep or remove the painted flares.  I'm not much for exterior tack on accessories and sometimes I get that feel from the flares even though they are factory.  Running boards are going away for sure, too small for my feet but big enough to get my pants dirty.

All this as soon as I get it back from the wife, of course :'(

Hello from Mid-Mich (Dewitt). I have had my '03 since new. I've been a member since '03 but haven't been on much,only when I have a problem (sorry). I used to be a helicopter mechanic/inspector in my younger years but have got lazy in my older years. Since retirement I spend my time doing long (real long) distance running and racing.

The wide variety of folks and events, I don't think distance running is up many people's alley  :D

If you happen to see Amber DRLs(on mine they are down by the Fog lights and are on ALL the time) on a 04 cladded Charcoal Avalanche then thats me!!!

Hi, I am from northern Oakland county.

We are about to buy our third Avalanche, but currently have an 08 4x4 dark red LT.

As you can guess we love the Avalance, but also have a few other GM cars, my wife drives the avalanche, but I get to play with it on weekends, my daily driver is a G8 GT.

I will update on the new ride when we trade in the 08, does anyone know of any Michigan dealers who are still taking '10 orders?

Hi to all the Mich. Avalanche club members!
 Just got started with this club, and not sure the correct proceedure to put my info about me and the AV. I live in a small town called Zeeland. My 2003 Avalanche is an all Black Z71, with North Face interior. It only has 37,500 miles on it, and it looks like it was well taken care of. I would like to add some more chrome to it, like a billet grille. Just a couple of things that the previous owner did, was to remove the cargo pad and lose the owners manual. Also the tailgate is a little touchy to get open. Need to insert key and press to unlock position while slowly pulling on the handle. So need to try and work on that. I don't know how hard it is to dismantle tailgate to get at the working parts to see if an adjustment is all that is needed or something is worn out. Anyway this looks like a good place to help me learn.
Thanks for all the big welcome :thumbsup:

Hello to all the Av lovers in Michigan!
Just bought my 2003 Av Z71, Black with graphite leather interior, loaded and 37,00 miles.
So far I love this truck, ride so much better than my other GM trucks, gonna use it for the snowmobile trips and family vacations.
Trying to understand all the optional equipment, so any Av only tips would be greatly appreciated.
Would reallyt like to know what axle ratio it has and if it has limited slip etc...
Normally a real diehard GMC fan, the last Chevy truck I had was a 1975 K30, thinking that is about to change.............

HI all. New to the site. I just bought an '04 Avalance Z71 last week and really liking it. I bought it for a daily driver/winter ride because I store my Duramax Diesel in the winter. Live in Dryden, but spend alot of time in Ludington. The truck is loaded with every option, Forest Green with Cladding. Its bone stock, but I do have a Cortex I can tune it with that I have form my G8 GT. Anyone play with this tuner yet? I has four settings, but I don't know which does what as far as mileage gains, power, etc.....

Post by: redheadedrod on June 18, 2011, 15:26:15 PM
I am an Av newbie... Just bought a mint condition '03 Black Z71 1500 with charcoal leather interior. Has ambers on it... And front windows are darker than the rears. Has BOSS 6disc changer but otherwise seems to be pretty basic.

The truck had 191,000 miles on it when I bought it and appears to have been taken very well care of.

I am in Grandville, MI (SW of Grand Rapids by about 5 miles).

The only signs of it being used are slight discoloration in the carpet... Slight cracking of the drivers seat but it appears it has been replaced once. but no other interior wear at all. The exterior has a couple scratches on it but nothing major.

It does have a few minor mechanical issues which I hope to iron out. Even if I paid cash for the dealer to fix what is wrong I would still have bought it 1000 under retail value so I am happy with it so far.

Mechanical issues with it are...
Door lock cylinders are frozen (Have new ones, just have to install) One of the DRL sockets were burned up so I replaced it... Still has a bearing/belt slipping noise that is RPM related. (Guessing bad tensioner)
Has a whine under load at highway speeds and has Service 4WD when I put it in auto or 4wd. Guessing it is the $400 repair and is both the noise and service note..

I bought this truck with a 1 year 15,000 mile drive train warranty from the dealer...

So I am looking forward to some upgrades... I want to have black rims on it.. Thinking some 20" rims like the SS rims... Keep the stock rims for winter driving. I also want to "blacken up" the exterior of the truck.. Such as the lights and the chrome grill piece.   Considering other upgrades as well but still learning about this truck.

Will likely go to the National GTG since it is so close but can only come on friday night or sunday or both.. I work all day saturday.

Oh and I saw a blue Av tonight in Grand Rapids while I was working with amber DRL's. Dark blue pre 2007 style.

Ok, I have been a member here for a short while and I am currently back home on leave for a few days. How do I become a member in the Michigan Avalanche Club or what ever it's called? When and where do you guys meet? I have a White 2003 Avalanche, it has a white tribal US ARMY sticker in the rear window along with black Infidel stickers where the rear corners of the hood and fenders meet.

Figures, I head out the 26th to drive to Ft. Stewart. I am a member of MISSL as well, we are holding the nationals this year and I will miss that as well. Last year I missed the SHO nationals that were held here in Mich as well. Bad timing I guess.

As stated above, I leave next week, I have to report on the 28th. I want to get there a day early to a look around. It is truly my honor to do what I do. I do it proudly. I know it sounds like the "PC" answer but it is the truth.

Add insult to injury why don't you.... The Double J is pretty cool. My family went there just before I went into the Army. It was during the winter, they have three pretty fast sledding/tubing hills. Good food, nice facilities. Oh, we also went down all the tube slides with my son. The scenery is pretty good as well. You guys should have a good time there. There are a few out posts like a western town for shopping, horse rides and so on. Good luck and have fun!  Where will you guys be for Woodward Cruise? Our car club is MISSL, we are in Pontiac as usual but this year we will be where the loop splits/divides. Stop by if you get a chance, I won't be there, but you will get good treatment.

Hello fellow Michiganders. I'm actually not so new to CAFCNA, I've done a bit of "guesting" but finally decided to "member-up". I'm retired from Active Duty, Army National Guard, Michigan (AGR). I bought my first AV nearly two years ago, a used 03, cladded, Z71. I really enjoy cooking meat, BBQ and grilling, and I'm currently a student of Charcutery. I live near KZoo and am very possibly the only Av owner with ambers in my area.

You might see a IBM with ambers running around.  I traded it in and they told me someone local bought it.  It has been a year now and I have not seen it around.

Hey guys and gals!  I picked up a new 2011 Z-71 last saturday.  A buddy that went from a sport-trak to an AV sold me on it!  I didn't know it had a mid-gate until he bought one, and without that feature I would have been looking at super crew F-150's.

Anyway, I traded in an 03 Lincoln LS and 98 F-150 on it.  I loved both of those vehicles and they treated me well for a considerable amount of time and miles... but the F-150 was showing considerable michigan cancer and would have simply cost far too much to get back in-shape.  The LS was starting to have electrical accessory issues.  So both are gone and I now have the perfect truck.

I used the GMS program as my father retired from GM.  Brought him with me to the dealership and we both ended up walking out with the keys to new AV's.  He traded in his 98 F-150.  This is the first new GM vehicle he's bought since 79, and the first new or used since 91.  We've been partial to Ford products just due to the good experiences we've had with them, and in our opinions, better styling.  But, GM has made some impressive strides in the last 10 years in the styling department; at this point both GM and Ford are making very nice looking vehicles- especially trucks.  Tack on that GMS pricing, the AV's Mid-gate and it was a no-brainer.

So where is the GTG list for 2011?  Looks like the last one posted was 2010?

Several annual GTGs predate the list, it's still a good rough guide for events we might repeat. Doesn't always work out with all of our various interests and other obligations, like work  :7: 

The REN FEST and Golden Memories Auto show are nearby if anyone is interested. Also look for a possible Cider Mill/apple orchard GTG this fall ? That's another one that can fall flat due to inclement fall weather,...

Can anyone give me some advice on how to improve the gas mileage? This truck can pull a house off its foundation, but I don't need to do that everyday.

Welcome to the Michian Family jeffja1 good to see another 2500 daily driver here. As far as improved mileage baby the gas peddle and put as much air pressure in the tires as required by the tires. Have you done any mods to it yet.

For many of us our first GTG was Cabela's in the spring, even if it wasn't our first GTG it's where many of us first met many other members from MI/OH/IN/ON over the years.

Hey guys, just picked up a sweet '02 Z71, and I am a convert... Comin over here from the S10 scene, time to see what big brother can do! I was always blown away by the amount of help those guys at S10Forum were ready to offer, hopefully I get the same sense of community here. I am looking forward to offering my help as well, having 10 years as a ASE certified technician, and having done literally hundreds of custom interiors on various makes. I also have done some pretty major event planning projects in the past, and would love to get somethin rollin in those regards as well!

Welcome to the club, I owned 3 S10s. Stock the AV is much more stable than an S10 but you'd need a much wider autocross course.
I'm not familiar with autocross but it sounds like alot of fun and I'm thinking Chevy SSR  :B:    :drive:

Hello My name is Leo...Im fairly new to this forum, was accepted earlier today prior to going to work.  I have been lurking aka reading the posts while patiently waiting.  I own a 2003 black avalanche.  I absolutely love my truck, and I am hoping to do some improvements on it.  I am a complete noob when it comes to maintenance etc as when i was growing up I played baseball and was on a traveling team therefore i didnt learn a lot from my father.  As he was working his ass off to keep me playing. He taught me a lot about carpentry, blue prints etc but we never spent the time to learn anything regarding my vehicles.

I am eager to learn new things and would like to find someone relatively close to me who is willing to help me achieve my goal of improving my vehicle the truck i always envisioned owning.  I would like to do several modifications and upgrading my stock stereo and of course I would like to find a real good person to repaint my truck and do a custom drawing of a ghost misty lion on a cliff looking down on earth.  I was thinking that could be my on my hood or the rear gate. Nothing is concrete yet.  I would also like to purchase or make a midgate stealth box for my future upgraded system.

Someone scrapped my front cadding and would like to repair that if not completely replace it if it cant be repaired.  I am willing to do the work but do not know if its possible or not. 

My truck isnt where i want it to be, but with some help and guidance im hoping to learn a lot and know the completed project was done so with my hands and my mind. 

Leo

Thank You for the warm welcome....
Charlotte area Olivet area are pretty freaking awesome areas to raise children in....

I am going to attend the GTG when a date is decided upon.  I cant wait, I have so many ideas and wants but as always things get set back due to other responsibilities. I wanted to have my stereo unit purchased and installed by now but My Catalytic Converter went one me.  So yep im ordering a new Cat but havent decided on whether a direct fit system or just get the Cat itself and have it welded on.  Then there are so many options out there for Cats...Its like swimming in a pile of weeds.

I did discover if I purchased the Cat itself it would have to be the 4x4 version, as it would not work according to a salesmen the 2wd option would not work correctly, why ? I have no idea.

Not really "new", but I did just buy my 2013 after 4 years without an Avalanche (had a 2002).

Now if we can just stop the Gobernment from taxing the heck out of Gas, I can keep this one for at least 7 years like my 2002.

Hi there fellow Michiganders!

I just bought a 2002 Avalanche 1500 Z71 in Summit White with cladding. I couldn't be more happy with it! It has around 128k miles, but looks, sounds and drives A++. Now if we get some rain I can get a little mud on the tires.  :thumbsup:

I'm in Genesee County, Grand Blanc Township area. There seems to be quite a few fellow Av owners around here, I've seen practically every color and year. Maybe with a group like this, they will all get involved!

When you go to one of the events, do others all go together...meaning like in a caravan? Or go and meet up there?

Depends on the event and who or how many people are going. When we did the REN FEST we met at Sam's Club across from Al Serra then cruised down so as to park together.

Thanks for the welcome. Looking forward to attending a function and meeting some people. The only reason I even know about this is that I met a guy at the parking lot of the auto parts store and he told me that he had an Avalanche that looked just like mine. In the course of the conversation he told me about the Club. Anyway I'm rambling on, so, again thanks for welcoming me.

Hello everyone.  I've lurked around for a bit, and figured I should join.  I've owned my 2010 Avalanche for almost three months now, and I love it.  I've changed the tune a little bit, and intended to make more changes this spring.
Here are a few pictures I took the day I picked it up from the dealership.(http://i86.photobucket.com/albums/k102/littlemissGTO/IMG_2833_zps0412ef22.jpg) (http://s86.photobucket.com/user/littlemissGTO/media/IMG_2833_zps0412ef22.jpg.html)(http://i86.photobucket.com/albums/k102/littlemissGTO/IMG_2832_zps52e090e3.jpg) (http://s86.photobucket.com/user/littlemissGTO/media/IMG_2832_zps52e090e3.jpg.html)(http://i86.photobucket.com/albums/k102/littlemissGTO/IMG_2831_zps1b029375.jpg) (http://s86.photobucket.com/user/littlemissGTO/media/IMG_2831_zps1b029375.jpg.html)

I worked out of an office at Southfield/11 Mile and lived in Royal Oak '87-'92

Many dealers have moved, closed or changed names/owners the past 22 years.
Mainly due to GM dropping Oldsmobile, Pontiac, Saturn and Hummer 

btw - forgot to say welcome to the club  :welcome:

 :wave: Figured I would finally introduce myself, name is Ryan. I traded in my lifted 04' GMC Canyon on a new to me 08' black Z71 Avalanche a few months ago. I, like so many others have a modification addiction and not 2 days after owning it I had already had parts ordered for it. I have blacked out the grille, bowties, and side mirror covers. Installed a Rough Country 2.5"/.75" lift plus additional 1" for the rear and installed a set of 285/65r18 Duratracs. Installed a heated steering wheel for this cold winter and has been the best mod yet. Diablo tune and other small cosmetics here and there with many more things to come in the future as no car remains stock in my household. I currently live and work in Warren while finishing a degree at Macomb Community. Hope to meet some of you in the near future.

Ever been to Leonard or Memphis?

NE corner towns of Oakland and Macomb counties that could pass for Mayberry last time I visited. South Lyon in Oakland's SW corner has lost much of it's rustic flavor in the past 30 years but both counties still have some rural areas.

My name is Jim and I live in a place called smiths creek (west of port huron). I just purchased my first avalanche from a fella I work with.  He knew I had been talking about needing a vehicle that could tow my mud truck  that I have been building and also haul the inlaws around when needed. So, a couple fridays ago he came in and offered the truck for sale to me. I told him that I would think about it and get back with him on it.  lol  1/2 hour later I bought the truck on the spot. I then searched around the web and found this site and it looked like a fun place to connect with.

Hello!

I was told after stopping by the main new members page to say hello here as well. 

Original owner of a 2004 without body hardware birch metallic Z66.  The truck has always taken good care of me.  Still riding with the original engine and transmission.  With 197,000 miles and Michigan winters, the rocker panels and the fender panels in front of and behind the rear wheels are starting to rust bad.  I have been trailering a 2010 Rockwood Roo 23ss for the past 5 years with it starting at 100,000 miles and the truck handles the towing great.  (dry weight 4,500 lbs).

I'm at the crossroads of deciding whether to sell the truck or fix it.  I've chosen to repair the rust and other things and continue driving it for a couple reasons.  First, the cost of a replacement truck is absolutely ridiculous at this point.  $20-25,000 for a comparable newer truck with 100k miles on it or $50,000 for a new one!  Second, this truck was/is a beast.  I swear it drives just as good as the day I bought it.

We sold another outstanding vehicle lately a 2005 Ford Explorer Limited.  Instead of using that money for a down payment on a new vehicle, I'm dumping part of it into the Avalanche.  Here is a list of the things I've done so far this month:  used a black restorer on the outside black plastic (wow do it if yours is grey), new headlight assemblies (all four), wax and rubbed out the scratches, replaced the front grill Chevy emblem (hard to find), detail cleaned the vehicle inside and out multiple times, trans fluid service, differential fluid change, new tires, power steering fluid change, new wheel internal hub because the stabilitrax system wasn't functioning properly (pushed override button to turn it off for over a year), O2 sensor - bank 2 #2, fuel system cleaner, radiator drain and service.

Still have a few things to do:  drivers seat needs cushion repaired and rips fixed ($265) radio knobs (source, volume and tuning buttons are worn).  All steering wheel switch lights (the lights went out one by one).  A/C climate control unit (left side light is out).  Want to add Bluetooth to the factory radio.  Rust is here! (under hood by latch)  Slight rust on inside bottom corners of doors, outside rocker panel shot bad (going the slip on route). In front of and behind the rear wheels rusting coming quickly.  Cargo area leaks (yet to figure out why) and maybe some new shocks.

Happy to be finally posting here!  I love to keep my truck stock, like it kept the way I bought it.  The only thing I added was an audio input plug for my phone/ipod.

Hi everyone!  I'm Edward.  DidIt and enoniam sent me here and I (finally, after 3 times) got registered and signed in here.  I'm in Muskegon Michigan, transplanted from Atlanta Georgia about 3 and 1/2 years ago.  I bought the Avy shortly after I got here and I've loved it ever since.  Few issues with the truck so far being I've rebuilt the transfer case and transmission within the last year.  Other than that, replaced all the shocks and front end parts, but mostly, having to do repairs from when I hotdog it too hard!  Gotta put that ORV sticker to use, right?? 

I uploaded a few photos to show you guys what I've done to it so far.  I need to take a recent photo, but it just started snowing so maybe not the best time yet. 

*Next mod - I painted the tonneau covers with Road Armour from Harbor Freight Tools, and so far they've been holding up well.  When the truck thaws, i'll remove all the upper cladding and paint it all with the Road Armor and replace the 3rd brake light with a LED 3rd Brake light (http://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B005FW32IK?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o07_s00) I got from amazon, and add the AVY Shades (https://www.facebook.com/AVYShades/).   Also been looking at the super flux LEDs from Oznium (http://www.oznium.com/prewired-superflux) and adding 6 white to the top piece of the cladding and wiring them into the reverse/cargo lights. 

I'm planning on going to the dinner that enoniam and DidIt told me about in December and hope to meet you guys there!

:welcome: to the group DrtyTruckr

I'm down your way, some of the time. So if you ever see a Gen 1 cladded AV with lots of lights on it that's probably me

Thanks for the warm welcome. I'll keep my eye out for you guys on the road. If you see a black AV with black rims and some dog tags hanging off the rear view mirror that'll be me.

Longtime Avalanche fan, newbie member.

Hope Iím doing this right. Got my first AV in 2008 and have been hooked ever since.  :wave: I still have three of the five Iíve had with the newest picked up this summer in Kansas City Missouri. Iím up here in the UP of Michigan. The Ď13 is my summer ride and the Ď07 is my winter ride. Sheís pretty rough looking from the salt but still drives great at 249,000 miles. The Ď02 has been modified and fitted with all the goodies needed for tornado chasing with my brothers in the plains states in springtime. Lots of hours per day behind the wheel of that one and still probably the better ride of the three.

Anyway, Iím a lifelong wrenching, gear head, Chevy fan and hope to provide good advice and receive the same on this site. Iím a busy guy so I will visit here maybe only once or twice a week.

Geno
