Is this what they look like if you rip the cladding off? What year did they lose the cladding but still keep the cat eye headlights?!

Cladding was from 02-06 Although My 02 which was one of the first sold in the US was in my driveway on June 1st of 01.. It was seen in many Ad's in Mag's But the 03-06 Model years you could get one called a WBH (without Body Hardware) It had the same front nose as a Silverado The Cladded nose was differant from any other GM trucks..

2002 was the only year that required the cladding. In 2003, they introduced the WBH (without body hardware) package like mine is so it has the silverado front clip and different body panels that aren't formed with the contours and clips for the cladding. You could get them either with or without cladding for the rest of that generation from 2003-2006.

And Phantom, that counts. That Escalade is a nice looking rig. I really like those. Good on you for using it to plow too!

GM was big on that cladding back in the early 2000s. My Aztek had cladding that was mounted with 3M tape. I like the Avalanche... It will probably be my next purchase... It looks like a suburban with the top chopped in the rear... Although the 'burb never got the "cat eye" nose treatment...

I have seen a Tahoe that someone swapped the cat eye nose onto... It looked awesome.

I had a 98 Pontiac Montana with cladding all the way around also.

My Avalanche is the EXTREME WBH...lol A lot of the WBH models would still have the door molding strips and/or the fender flares, but as you can see in the pics, I don't have any of that, and that is how it came.

I just consider it a NEKKID AV...lol :gasp:

Your Av looks great! The front looks like my 03 Silverado, which I really liked. The other avalanches are nice too... I am just not a fan of the wheel openings with the flat tops. I don't so much mind the grille/lights on them tho.

I can already see that when I get mine, it will have to come into the shop for some metal work on the rear to put on '03 style tail lights. Not a fan of the swept tail light lenses on the sides.

This also has me thinking about taking am OBS suburban and making it into an Avalanche. That would be a cool project too! I saw one where someone attempted it on a mid 80s body Suburban. It looked like crap though. It looked like it had been cobbed together in someones back yard...

Thank you! Most of the mods I have done with it have to do with lighting, and there are still some lights I want to add, but give it time and there will be a lot of physical improvements to her also.

I was wondering the same thing... All of the 2002-2006 avalanches have the same tail lights.

Mine is the same way. My research shows that the trim stirs down the side were part of what gm called the protection package. It wasn't popular here, but those trim parts were standard on the regular trucks. It's a bit strange. Anyway, I like not having them... Other than it gets more door dings this way.

Nice looking truck. I wish I could get an exhaust like that but I don't think I would be able to afford it so I am just thinking about dumping it. I will put so pic's of truck here soon all tho it is bone stock but I can just make a photo call of all the work and mods I do with it. :D
