The Story

I got my colorado in 2013 for $18,250 as a more fuel efficient daily drive option than my 1990 K1500. It's a 3.7L inline 5, two wheel drive automatic weighing in at 4280 lbs with me in it. My long term plan with the truck is to create my take of a GT truck that can be used for road trips, backroad drives and still keeps the versatility of a truck intact. So far the truck has had some minor modifications made to it mostly for comfort or for or drivability including FATMAT matting on the front and rear doors, BFG All terrain tires, Lightning audio 1000 watt capacitor, Pioneer 820 watt amp, hifonics Zeus subs, all new pioneer speakers, pioneer double din touchscreen headunit,  bug guard, undercoating, and some regular maintenance parts. The long term plans are to buy a donor 3.7L to build as a stroker engine with a single turbo somewhere in the 58mm-88mm range to put the horsepower in the 500-700 range. I would also like to install a posi rear, custom exhaust system, full interior sound matting, custom foamed heated seats, paddle shift, and some more sound system upgrades. The truck will be a work in progress over the next five years since at the moment it is still my daily until my K1500 project is complete, i will try to keep my parts, pictures and information as up to date as possible.
