I have an 02 Av, and I'm in Robinson.  so far the only mods I have done to it are electric fan conversion, and amber drl's. plan on doing a cai soon, and some new shocks.

Your should be easier to spot with the light mods. I travel all the time and I am guilty of not getting my amber, full time DRL and all on completed. My front bowtie has been off for a month at least.

I'm in Southern Indiana, only about 90 minutes or so from Mt. Vernon.  I'm working on a GTG in Evansville, IN for September...as soon as I get something set I'll post it on the Illinois section...maybe y'all could come join us!!

Also, labor day weekend there is a GTG in St. Louis called "Bratfest"...might want to look into that.  Usually a big turnout and a lot of fun!  (y)

Hi all I am from the Mattoon/Charleston area, I have an 04 bought it used in 05 and just love it!  It's Cameo  White  and 2wd. Wife had a 2 yr old Caddie when I got the Avy and well guess witch one she likes to drive now.

No longer have the Caddie got a Jeep Wrangler and she still likes the AV, and I get stuck in my 89 GMC PU that I have had forever!

Have had lots of folks ask about the AVY whether I like it or not and my answer is always the same---best vehicle I have ever had, well maybe not my 70 RoadRunner but dang close!

Its in the area go to Effingham some it has 101ABN plates with the 101st decal on the tailgate, honk if ya see me!!!!

I'm in Belleville and just bought a 2004 1500 WBH. I've only had it for two weeks but already know I'll never get rid of it! I worked in Mattoon last year as a teacher

I used to work with a guy from Pickneyville.

You could start with swapping out your DRL's with amber bulbs. I painted my grill the color of the truck. Hell, you have a cladded beast so it already sticks out!
