I am new to this forum but not to these amazing trucks.
I bought a '02 Z71 in fall of '12 with 100,000 miles on it & run it up until this past spring when I accidentally popped it in reverse while it was still rolling forward ever so slightly & trashed the tranny. But I can't complain I mean it was my fault & she has 330,000 miles on the clock! The only invasive thing ever done to her was to re-seal the intake about a month after I got her & replaced the water pump about a month before I trashed her.
I'm almost 50 & ive had a lot of very nice trucks over the years but none of them could hold up against that avalanche! Until I got my new one that is. Well, new to me but it is like new.
I just bought a super nice & super clean 2011 Avalanche LTZ. It is silver & absolutely beautiful. There is not a door ding or any other blemish on it to speak of. It is loaded up with everything except the electronic trailer brake, heated washer fluid or heated steering wheel. I believe those are the only options it does not have. The first 2 are no big deal but im going to upgrade to the heated steering wheel real soon.
Ive got some very severe nerve damage in my hands & arms & also my feet & legs. The cold absolutely kills my hands so I'm thinking the heated wheel may be a good upgrade for me.
I love these trucks & would not consider owning anything else.
Jim

Hello, I got an Avalanche bout 8 months ago (pictured in profile pic). Figured I might as well connect with fellow owners and get ideas for mods.

Hello all. Love this forum excellent source for AV info.
I’ve owned my 03 Z71 for 5 years now and love it. Repair myself. Currently installing audio system and having fun with it!
