What to Do With Our 2003 Avalanche Project Truck - Four Wheeler Network

Back in 2003 we built a Chevy Avalanche for the Ultimate Adventure. At the time we thought an Avalanche was pretty crazy to build into a wheeling machine (notice how tame it looks in that first photo. We started with a bright red 2003 Avalanche 2500. Yes, they made them in 3/4-ton versions. We fitted the big truck with a solid axle swap kit from Off Road Unlimited and built a custom steering rear axle to help it weave around trees and rocks on tight trails. The big truck had custom bumpers from Trail Ready and Poison Spyder Customs. The Avalanche had then-new 39-inch BFGoodrich Krawler tires on 17-inch Walker Evans Racing beadlock wheels. The truck was fun to wheel and had plenty of power, though it was pretty tall and wide on tight Jeep trails. The big Chevrolet Avalanche has been used, abused, repaired, and parked. What would you do with a beat-up old Avalanche that still needs lots of work. The Avalanche still has that Dynatrac 60 up front, but now the rear end is a tried and true Corporate 14-bolt and we dropped her down lower and she’s shod with 37-inch General Grabbers.
