Suburbans and even Excursions. We always here about how "Big" an Avalanche is. Not really. Heavy, yes. Wheelbase is over a foot shorter than a GM X-Cab pickup, or a Dodge Ram Quad Cab, which makes them much easier to manuever. They are a little tall to step up in to. My Wife and Daughter took mine to Colorado shortly after I got it and loved it. The Chevy Avalanche Fan Club has many Women owners and drivers. Go for it, you won't be disappointed.

Avalanche is not big? Maybe compared to an Army 5 ton truck it isn't. Look at what other people in the world drive.

Up at my summer place in Alexandria Bay NY I spotted a 03 Av with NO cladding or fender flairs. It was black and looked awesome!
I thought w/o the cladding they at least had fender flairs from the pics I have seen. I couldn't talk to the owner to see if he took off the flairs. Anybody know ?................geo

the Fender Flares and Side Molding is a $250 option package. BTW WBH = Without Body Hardware.

Yea, It did have the body side moulding ! But NO
wheel flairs. Wish I could of talked to the owner.
Maybe he took them off like I did on my 2500. It
was the first one I have ever seen that way.....geo
#1995 of 2035 Could be they added just
May 12, 2003 (6:51 am)
the molding. A few have added Suburban or Crew Cab moldings. Mine, being the Pewter, just begs for molding. The lighter colors do look pretty plain. But the Black and also the Dark Gray look really good without needing anything added.

#1998 of 2035 painted body hardware
Jun 05, 2003 (1:45 pm)
I was wondering if anyone has seen or have painted the body hardware on the AV. I like the way the Escalade EXT looks with the full paint on the cladding, but like the pricing of the AV.

I have seen a new black AV in my neck of the woods without cladding or the flairs on the wheel lips like the 2500 pickups have. I couldn't talk to the owner to see if he removed the flairs or if it came that way. Looked good too!...geo
