Hi New member and thanks! Glad to find this group. Been hard finding answers to help me till I got here. Ppl keep stealing parts off my truck so now I'm having to replace them myself. I LOVE my truck and don't ever want to take it to a mechanic again. Every time I do 5 major are wrong and missing when I get it back. I have a great 02' 1500 Z71 fully loaded. Black. Got it for cheap. So many ppl are jealous and or think I'm rich because I drive such an awesome beast. I hope I can learn a lot here. Thank you!

hello, thanks for letting me join.

my avalanches are as follows

2002 2500 4x4 8.1 green exterior and blue interior with sand color headliner. kinda odd factory combo i pull a 16,000 Lb rv with it. other than the gas i think its the best production combo chevy ever put out.

Flint, Mi
:welcome: to the club Raekal. Did your uncle work at the truck plant in flint or the tech center in Warren

I know for certain that he is currently working at the GM global propulsion systems center in Pontiac. However, i do not know if he has always worked there or used to be at Warren at some point. Ill have to ask him the next time I see him. For some reason I remember talking to him about warren at some point, but I cannot recall the context. I do however remember that he had the avalanche for a transmission specific real world trial. I cant remember if they were having a specific quirk with it or what was going on. I honestly haven't put much thought into it until now. Im sure the conversation will come up when he sees me pull in with it.

Hey from BC Canada! I just bought an '04 Avalanche Z71 1500 a cpl weeks ago. Grey Slate colour with all the cladding, leather and power everything. She seams in great shape all around, bone stock, with minimal and typical wear for 17. Super happy to find this club as, although I'm a chevy guy, I knew nothing about the Avalanche or the 5.3 and I have alot! of questions. My last truck, an '89 Z71 single cab pickup, decided to quit after I'd worked her a bit too hard for her age. I found the Av, perfect truck for my family, hunting, fishing and driving to work. My favorite things so far is the removable back window and wall, and the Bose speakers.
