Default Back in a 4x4 finally

So I went out with my tax return and got a 4x4 again.


Chevy Colorado Z71 LS




It seems to be lifted. The guy that sold it to me said it was a 4" lift, but I'm not quite sure on that with how the back end looks. But it is riding on 275/65/R18s and has about 10" of ground clearance so it'll do haha.

Took it for a quick spin in the snowy-mud. (Had the kids and wife with me so I couldn't do a whole lot of pic taking)


Feels good to be back in a truck again.

You picked a great color. The snirt ( snowy-mud in Mich.) matches the paint.

3.5L I5. It would do a bit better, but with 4:10s in the diffs, I still cruise at 80mph at 2500rpm. So it doesn't like 65 to 70mph much. The trans is geared way too low.

On a side note,
I bought a cheapo LED bar for the roof and got it installed today. (minus wiring)
