How long was your learning curve?
Since I've bought my 02 Avalanche in April I have been been amazed by it's versatility and how much of an enjoyable experience it is to drive.
I have owned so many vehicles in my driving career but this is the first Chevy truck and Ican't believe it took me this long to come to my senses. I should have bought a Chevy truck years ago.
List of previous mistakes
82 VW rabbit
73 dodge dart
82 Chevy Cavalier type 10 SS hatchback (not a bad car for the money)
84 VW Jetta
87 Ford Bronco 351windsor (honestly the worst thing I ever owned, it was One big Money Pit)
86 Nissan 300z
91 Honda CRX Si
96 Chevy Monte Carlo Z34. Nice car but engine was poorly thought out.
02 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab ( my first brand New truck) Decent truck but way too small
05 Toyota Sienna (Wifes car)
87 BMW 325E ( need to be independently wealthy to repair anything on these)
NOW 02 Chevy Avalanche 2500 8.1L I have reached nirvana.

I had to laugh when I saw that your 2002 Frontier was your first crew cab and too small as my first crew cab was a 2002 Toyota Tacoma Double cab limited. What were we thinking ???LOL.Darcy

I was happy to have a truck when I bought the Frontier. How foolish of me to think that was a truck.
At least now I know what real trucks are made from.

I feel the same way bro. I absolutly love my truck and will never drive anything less than a fullsize chevy. I'm so spoiled now. It's like driving a big comfy couch with gobs of power and style. At 6'7" and 240 lbs I don't think I'll ever own a car again.
I didn't know the avalanche had a 2500 series or an 8.1 L. Thats huge, and badass!Adam

They are around but it's hard to find them in. They were only available for a few years and most of the time you had to special order them. I found this one in mint shape with only 37,000 miles. Paid 12500 for it which was 6000 less than the going value. If anything happens to this I will not by anything else than a full size Chevy. You can hold me to that.
