    Question 2002 Chev Avalanche 1500 Z71 - looking for spare tire hoist

    Greetings All
    I have owned the above vehicle since early 2002. It sgiven very good service
    My Spare wheel hoist is defective. I don't miss it. Using it is a pain in the neck and other places.
    I wish to replace it with a motorized hoist that I believe the Cadillac Escalade of the same era used (Am I mistaken?)
    Where can I get a motorized hoist that will fit in the same place as my manual hoist?

    Welcome to the club!
    I used to have an Avalanche, but I have never heard of a motorized carrier either.

    If you find a motorized hoist, please make sure you clue the rest of us in on it. I'd be down with one of those!
