Longtime Avalanche fan, newbie member.

Hope I?m doing this right. Got my first AV in 2008 and have been hooked ever since.  :wave: I still have three of the five I?ve had with the newest picked up this summer in Kansas City Missouri. I?m up here in the UP of Michigan. The ?13 is my summer ride and the ?07 is my winter ride. She?s pretty rough looking from the salt but still drives great at 249,000 miles. The ?02 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, I?m a lifelong wrenching, gear head, Chevy fan and hope to provide good advice and receive the same on this site. I?m a busy guy so I will visit here maybe only once or twice a week.

Geno

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 for up and coming local GTG's and events.

Hi! Just joined. Don't own a car. Have a 2010 Grand Caravan. Late last year bought my stepson's 2013 Black Diamond (all white). Also have 2 Diamond-T trucks and work on a third at a museum. Live in Springfield (next to Battle Creek). Truck was first sold by Sundance. Stepson got it two years later and used it for work (contractor) and personal in Ludington.

Hi Everyone! I've owned my "04" 2500 since brand new and absolutely love everything about this vehicle and the robustness it offers!
My AV has only 9,200 miles on her and has obviously been a garage queen for almost all of its life, with a few trips made around Michigan every year. I live in a rural area south west of Port Huron and love to hear about my neighbors thoughts on GM's Trucks. Per company rules I have to disclose #IworkforGM. I look forward to being in this club and meeting people who have a the same passion I have for the Avalanche!

Well being 6 months since an entry, this doesn't appear very active, but I recently joined. Live in Cedar Springs, and commute to Battle Creek. Currently on my 2nd Avalanche. (1st was a 2003 Z71, 2nd is a 2011 LS)
Glad to have found this group.

Well, I probably should go ahead and poke my head in here.

My real name is James. I work for a progressive stamp die and tooling company in New Hudson, but live in Flint. Though I grew up in the Waterford area. (My, how that area has changed)

I recently rescued a poor abused 2500 from Michigan City IN last October and the mysteries surrounding it continue to this day. I've put a lot of money into it in order to make up for the lack of care the previous owner had given it. I'm pretty sure I've replaced and serviced (or in the process of) pretty much every component from the rear end up to the engine bay at this point. But I'm hoping in doing so it will have a long and healthy retirement. I just wish I had the tools to do a lot of it myself xD

Welcome to the website Ecory. Sorry for the theft too.
As far as your question about a SnugTop you may want to check directly with them to see if they are still making a top for the AV and if so they should be able to tell you who sells them in your area (be prepared they are very expensive). As far as used one check in the For Sale section on this website they come up for sale once and awhile or post a new thread in the Wanted parts section and see who responds.
Be advised if you get a hard top you will loose use of the side saddlebags unless you do a "boat hatch mod" which you may find photos and info on in the mods section on this website.

Thank you very much for the info. I I appreciate it. And thanks just keep it in prayer on this thief , I have two officers going to try to help me out on this I told them that I knew who did it but I could not prove it but that he has my tires on his truck and this is some one that don’t work lives off his girl friend and his parents never holds a job allows in trouble with the law . I know the officers are limited but I have a greater judge and that is God , I have taken this situation to him and I know he will handle it for me

Greetings Michiganders.. I just had an '04 1500 Z71 pretty much fall in my lap.
I've always liked Avalanches, but based on a >$40k price new, I never pulled the trigger.

Well I'm in the club now, so I'm here to look and learn.

My plan is to use this 4x4 in the mitten in the winters, saving my '09 2wd pickup for heavy hauling and summer use.

I do 95% of the work on my vehicles myself.
I'm retired so I have have time.. but the strength of my youth is years in the past..
