Sadly this is the last year for the Avalanche.

I intend to live forever, or die trying. It Could Be that the Purpose of Your Life is Only to Serve as a Warning to Others. Join the Army, meet interesting people, kill them. All those who believe in psychokinesis raise my hand.

Why do you say, "Sadly"?

My brother-in-law very recently acquired one from a guy who' buying a new 4x4, 4-door Silverado and was disgusted at what they offered him in trade. He likes the Avalanche so far.

If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you. This is the principal difference between a dog and a man. (Mark Twain).

To me the Avalanche is

just a slightly improved El Camino, rides like a car, limited payload, (in my friends case) 20" wheels....It is not a 'hauler' nor an 'off road' vehicle (even though it has 4 low).........I think Vaquero has an Avalanche so I can't wait to get beat up on this subject from him......LOL

I was glad to have the Avalanche with trailer as apposed to the unlicensed, uninsured S-10....lol

I agree, the Kreg jig

is wonderful but when you have already 'kicked the shit' out of your budget, dowels and biscuits will do.....LOL!

some sorta red fabric or what.. thiers a product called "pacific cloth".. Women are familure with it, it's supposed to be the bomb for storing any type of silver wear as for some reason it stops any issue with tarnishing.. If it works on silver ware... yep.. anyway.. should be great, be neat to watch the progress.. You do get things done brother..

I got one

put all my drawers together with it too,once its set right,the process is pretty fast,and the dovetails square the drawer as you build them,minimal clamping time,say 15 minutes,then the glue is set enough to go onto the next step.
