Does anyone plow using Chevy's new Avalanche? I saw a 3/4 ton Avalanche the other day...and I thought that a 2500 Avalanche would be better than a 1500 Silverado. If anybody uses an Avalance 2500 for plowing, how does it work? Any problems?
I wouldnt think plowing would be a problem with the avalanche,it is the same wheelbasr as a full size reg cab,long box,so it should handle the same.The avalanche has got to be the ugliest thing Gm has ever produced.,the idea is not bad though.
I think the Buick Rendeveau(sp) is even uglier than the Aztek, although they are basiscally the same.
I didnt know the Avalanch had a 2500 series. I would think the biggest issue would be installing the plow frame around/under/through the front bumper surround.
I agree the chevy avalanche is ugly anong with that pontiac aztec and its counter part over at buick.What was Gm thinking of I like the looks as well as the convience ,The designers say they get these looks from what we want nobuddy called me how about any one else lol.
Well actually that works alot better, but I was thinking of back in the 80's when the urban ledgend of "Mikey" from the life cereal commercials was rumored to have died when his stomach exploded from such a mixture.
I tell you what I went to Lujack's (Screwjack's) the other day and I about fell over at the cost of some of those things. I don't like ford but at least you can still get a base model 3/4 ton under 20K. Lujack's wouldn't even order one for me the way I wanted it. I want it 3/4 or 1 ton, long box, auto trans, 2wd, with vinal interior and a rubber floor. (not carpet) no a/c or radio. They said they couldn't do that because they wouldn't make any money on the sale. I said that was fine I can go to Lindquist.
Just a heads up. I just bought a Boss plow for my 2000 Silverado and I asked about the avalanche The dealer said that there is no plow for the avalanche and also said that Chevy didn't want that vehicle to be able to plow. I guess other Manufacturers might make one, but that's what I was told. FYI
that has got to be the worst looking thing on the road. but each their own. if you are near indiana and interested in a new ford, kenny vice in ladoga In . speacializes in work trucks and sells lower than anyone
I agree the avalanche & aztek are hitious, the Aztek is pretty much just an SUV (SRV actually)...I hear that the 2002 chevy trucks are going to have the front ends of an avalanche (GMC stays the same)! If that is true, I will be buying a GMC, although there isn't much of a difference.
