I made the switch !!!   :thumbsup:

             After owning our 2004,1500, Z71 for 4 years I finally had to switch. The wife and bought a 26" Wellcraft aftcabin boat (6000 dry GVW) and I was not going to haul it with the 1500. After 4 weeks of surfing the web talking to dealers/private sellers I finally found a low milage 2003,2500 with 4:10 gear and heavy duty suspension package. Had to take a 14 hour round trip road trip to take dilivery but it was worth it. What a beast !!! The wife and I love it !!!  :A: I want to thank all those AV 2500 owners that commented on this thread. I read alot here before making the switch. Everything you guys said was so true about this model. It is awesome. I cannot wait to put it to use next summer towing the boat to our favorite lakes. Thanks guys for the input !!!  :cool:

I to just became part of the exclusive 2500 club  :B: so far I have no complaints with this tuck, I upgraded from a 2003 Quadrasteer silverado as I needed some thing that would tow more weight. On a side note I've been thinking of doing a Gibson sideswept catback on the avalanche anyone have one of these systems? I had one on my silverado and liked it very much...

Haven't seen a Gibson setup on an 8.1 before, please let us know more if you decide to go that route  :thumbsup:

I just found this thread !!! I have a 2002 that I ordered while stationed overseas. Took delivery of it 01 March 2002 and immediately drove it from Oregon to Virginia (new duty station) with the wife and two kids. Put a Volant CAI, Gibson cat back and Fabtech 6" lift kit on in 2004 (tax free war zone funds) along with Mickey Thompson Classic Lok IIs with then Pro Comp Xtremes, 35". Still have it and am now over 153K miles. Put on the Cognito zero ohm spark plug wires with E3 spark plugs about 2 years ago. Looks like I am going to change out to the AC Delco's soonest. I  love the torque, horsepower and just plain ole grunt of this engine !!!! This truck has gone from Oregon to Virginia, Virginia to Florida (after the mods in 2004), then towed a Jeep TJ to Colorado from Virginia, up Pikes Peak, and then in 2011 I hauled a small Uhaul trailer moving back to Virginia from Colorado. Couldn't ever tell you were towing anything out back. Summer in Kansas, not too awesome. God Bless all of you Kansas folks.

I’m in… we go pick up our new to us Avy this Saturday! :woohoo:  
My brother has a Victory Red `02 1500 Avy and I have always liked it.
I didn’t really have the 1500/2500 choice, I tow a 7,500lb boat/trailer combo so it had to be a 2500.
We are very excited about this truck… I think its going to be awesome! :D

Welcome, the 2500 is a real tow beast. I tow a 31' Chris Craft - Cat on a steel trailer. Boat and trailer tip scales at 10890 lbs. The truck weighs 7000 lbs. Having the 4.10 makes all the difference.

Yes, maybe... if its a quite one...  :D

One of the many things I LOVE about this truck is the Locking diff...  :A:
My boat and trailer weigh 8,000 pounds, so last weekend we’re leaving the lake and just as I’m starting to pull out of the water the guy on the ramp next to me starts to pull out, he gets about half way up and starts completely smoking his rt.rear tire trying to pull out a boat/trailer that may have weighed 4,000 pounds. :o
So, I start my run up the ramp… she slips a few times but the locker kicks in and we motor up no problems… :A: :B: Then I look back and the other guy is still smoking his rt.rear tire on the ramp, except now his buddy is bouncing on the rear bumper trying to get more traction… :laugh:
