    sooooo....out of shear boredum we took a chevy colorado and tricked it out...now as much as I hate these POS trucks....this one actually turned out pretty cool. We took a 4" Tuff Country lift, 17" ProComp Wheels, 33" Kumho Tires, PIAA 510 lights, T-Max Winch, and of course our bumpers and made it look like a real truck....what do you think?

    I'm also not the biggest fan of those trucks, but what you guys did, it looks really good. Nice job done. I read your text before looking at the pictures, and was curious to see your Colorado bumper, but was plesantly surprised how well it looked. Wheels aren't my favorite, but over all, I really like the stance you gave it and the look of the truck with all of the items you added on.

    The wheels weren't my first choice but they were a last minute item so I dealt with what I had available...but I do appreciate the kind words...


    I'll keep you in mind...don't think it will be for a long while though....lol ):h

    The 5.3L they are going to put in it this year, will really help it out. That I-5 they had in it was a dog, on the power side, but a fairly reliable engine. The V-8 is the same one you'd find in the 1/2 tons. A very solid engine with a lot of power, and plenty of things to play with to make more power.

    I'm pretty impressed with the lines of your front bumper, it follows and match's up to the body really well. Good Job.
