Behind the backseat is a 5-foot pickup bed with a three-section, lockable hard cover. Right there, it's a great setup. Then, quicker than Dr. Jekyll could change into Mr. Hyde, the Avalanche can be converted into a Chevy Silverado with an 8-foot pickup bed -- by yourself, without tools. With an 8-foot bed at your disposal, you'll be able to haul a lot of stuff. Big stuff, too, like a deer stand and lumber.
