Well... It came down to decision time on my 2003 LTZ.  Put in a new engine at 156k or let her go...  Since I also needed to fix the rust bubbles on the rear fender panel and some hail damage, I decided to move on...      Sadly it was worth next to nothing on trade even though it was never wrecked and in great shape inside. 

I began looking at getting a high desert silverado because I don't use the midgate much anymore due to kid seats in the back.  But in the end I convinced myself that I would not be happy unless I had a new avalanche.  lol

So, as fortune would have it, we found locally a Black Diamond LT Z71 with sunroof with only 63k on it that was just brought in on trade.    Snatched it up!  lol..    It's a pretty truck, just got her today.    I will admit I almost cried a bit giving up the keys to the old one!    The rear window trim is cracked in 2 places (of course).  Some things never change no matter what year Avalanche you buy. 

I really like having remote start and a key fob locking tailgate!    But--  I miss the power folding mirrors and the bumper steps my 03 had...    time to start modding I guess!
