Boulder's '03 Avalanche Z71 *UPDATED 11-2*
This is my truck... It's nothing special, but I love it. All work on it was done by me. It's a slow process, since it's my only vehicle at the moment... but I think it's come along nicely since I bought it.

- 5.3L V8 Engine / Automatic Tansmission
- 4-Door truck with a collapable mid-gate

Here's what it looked like the day I bought it... (Click for larger image)
The first round of mods were the basics...

- 20% tint on the front windows to match the rear

Plus I installed some emergency lighting and equipment. I run with 2 ambulance companies and a fire department in my area.

I'm currently working on a box to replace my mid-gate. It's gonna hold my 2 Kicker COMP VR 12's, and I might mount my Alpine MRD M300 on it too...
In the construction I used 2 full sheets of 3/4 MDF, 3 bottles of wood glue, 2 tubes of liquid nails, and 4 cans of rubberized undercoating...
I also painted my speaker grills... It may be cheesy, but I think it looks good...
I had a Dupli-Color Ice Paint kit in my one storage cabinet, so I decided to dress them up a bit... I may even throw some paint on my amp too... I have a couple of Dupli-Color red/blue color change paint kits too... LoL
Thanks for checkin out my Truck... PLease, any comment/questions/complaints are welcome...

It looks pretty good. I'm not so sure about the center console, but if it works for you more to you my friend. However, I do like what you've done under the stereo.

Welcome to the site!
That is one of the coolest looking Avalanche's I have seen, now you just need a little bit of a lift kit and that would complete the kit. Awesome lights too, Whelen is the best from what I have heard.2004 Chevy Colorado
