#3576 of 6471 austin tx purchase
Mar 21, 2003 (10:51 am)
I've purchased two z71 tahoe's from capital chevrolet off south IH-35. i purchsed one back in 2001 and then traded that one in this past dec for a 2003. So far i've been pleased with the service they gave me at the time of purchase, and the service they continue to offer. Plus they offered me the best price i could find and gave me more on my trade in than any dealer in austin or houston would offer me.
#3577 of 6471 rear locking vs Stabilitrack

Here's a question, the rear locking differential isnt availalbe if the StabiliTrak is purchased. Not being much of an off-roader, what is the general thought on which option to get?

Disclaimer: I own an 03 Expedition, not a Yukon.
I was looking at the Yukon with Stabilitrac and my Expedition with AdvanceTrac as Ford calls it. The stability control system on my vehicle is darn impressive. I am very glad we got it. On the Ford at least, when you get the stability control system you can only get the open diff's. But you also get a traction control system that can apply power left to right, thus mimicking a LSD. If you don't venture off road much, my opinion would be to get the Stabilitrac. I don't think you'll miss the locking diff.

Beach15 - Thanks for the info. on the new Tahoe. I was under the impression that there were going to be major exterior changes in 2004 - I am personally glad they have kept it the same. I don't think I could stomach a Tahoe that has the same front end as the new (03) Chevy pickups.
I was interested to see that the 04 Tahoe will come standard with the 16" wheel that was standard on the LT pickups up until the 03 model year. That wheel was discontinued on the pickups and replaced by a similar wheel that does not have the two raised-ribs that give the appearance of connecting the spoke with the outer rim.
I think I would have preferred that Chevy not put a wheel on their new Tahoe that is old news to every 99-2002 Chevy pickup owner. On the other hand, I think these new wheels will look better than the old ones. (I recently replaced by Tahoe wheels with the new-style 03 pickup rims - and I like the way it looks.)

front end to show up on Tahoe and Suburban this year.
FYI, I'll soon be taking off my 16", '03 Avalanche wheels if anybody would like them for their Tahoe or Yukon. e-mail me.

FYI - if your Avalanche is an 03'- I think it has 17" wheels - not 16" wheels. I'm not absolutely sure - but you might want to check!

No, it only has 17" wheels if it has the Z66 or Z71 package...otherwise 16" wheels with Firestone tires are standard, and too small IMO. We have a 2002 Z66 and the 17" wheels with OWL Goodyears look quite good and ride like silk.

Very interesting - what do the 16" wheels look like. Are they just like the Tahoe wheels? I really like the wheels that I see on many new Avalanches (5 spoke with a dimple at the end of the spoke) and I would like to put a set on my Tahoe-if they are 16" wheels. However, I have always thought that they are 17" wheels.

Anyone here have an aftermarket DVD system in their Tahoe/Yukon?
