There's An Avalanche In The Driveway!

Took delivery of my Arrival Blue Z71 this evening! ;D
It's already got a US Flag Bowtie and will have amber
DRL's tomorrow.

It isa verry nice. All the bells and whistles except the
block heater and the DVD (wanted the sunroof).

Ordered it 8/22, Built 9/9 (or so) Delivered 9/23

The 1st time I sat in an 03 was mine this evening. As a
taller individual (6'3", tall upper body) one thing I noticed that was different than the 02 was that with the sunroom and, more importantly, the Bose speaker above my head, there was less headroom in the 03 than the 02...of course a simple seat adjustment made that a mute point.

No other observation at this point. The XM radio's cool.
Will post pictures when I can get some in the daylight!

Yeah! I'm officially in the club :B:

Happy Trails.

Now where is the camera get some pics of that bad boy. :cool: :cool: :cool:


Sounds like you were getting your mods together before you took delivery.

Now that's mod management.

btw, what dealership did you use? ?I used Jupiter in Garland

I got mine from Frank Parra (although it's apparently been bought out by a large company - Sonic (not the
drive in place :) )) so I don't know what may change. I've bought from them before and had pretty good luck.
Time will tell though.
Happy Trails!
