This 'Aint Your Dad's Compact!
By Hammerhead3812 on
2005 Chevrolet Colorado 4dr Crew Cab Z71 LS Base 4WD SB (3.5L 5cyl 4A)
I have the 4DR extended cab, Z71 4x4.
It has plenty of leg room.This is no
compact. The truck handles very
well,and brakes equally as well.I also
have the 3.5lt ebgine w/200
horses.After the cold intake is
installed(approx.$350)The horses go up
to 235-240. It get's 275-290 miles per
Tank.More on road trips.That is w/the
A/c running. It also has 15" rims(not
bycycle tires).4 wheel drive on the fly
comes in handy, especially in the
desert.4drs w/no seats are nice for
fishing,hunting or just keep your tools
back there.It is not a fullsize bed,but
then you won't have to move your
friends. It still has enough room for
medium size jobs.
My favorite features have mostly been
listed above.You got to love a 3" lift
with nice ground clearance.I have to
mention the 4dr rear cargo space again.
If you get the Crew Cab w/ seats make
sure the kids are small.
I would like to see this Truck Offered
W/ a small block V8.While the inline 5
is nice make sure you take it out of
overdrive going Up steep hills.It would
be Nice if you could put a lift kit on
it also. The best you can do is put
33's and crank the torsion bars.
