I just installed a set of Rough Country "rivet-style" pocket fender flares. I had noticed on the R/C site that they offer a black rivet kit as a replacement for the shiny metal screws (not sure if they are chrome or stainless?) but the black ones are actually plastic with a barb and a disc of 3M adhesive. I ordered them anyway to see what they looked like. I decided that I liked them, to keep a more 'monochromatic' look since there isn't much chrome on the All Terrain...

Looked and method race wheels uses a little plastic insert for raised letters and it had fallen out and was rattling inside the center cap. Checked and sure enough 3/4 wheels had the same issue. Their plastic welder must have been on the fritz the day they were manufactured. Took the wheels off, added some super glue, and put everything back on. Hopefully it holds up...

I had one the first night I was test fitting them. Took the wheel off and popped it back in place. A couple hundred miles so far and its doing fine.

ZR1 looking real aggressive. What's your wheel and tire setup? You running spacers?

Method Race Wheels 702 17x8.5 ET0 and BFGoodrich KM3 265/70/17. No spacers. Less backspacing on the wheels, so they stick out more.

No I haven't gotten around to it yet. I'm going back to the drawing board and buying higher quality LEDs and some real semi-transparent black paint to smoke the LEDs with.

My hacky alixpress LEDs and smeared black acrylic paint looked like ass. I still plan to complete this project soon. I'll keep you posted.

Looks good mate! Same model here . Will be ordering this soon once I get some funds ......seems like I'm spending more $$ on the mods rather than driving the truck. This forum is deadly for my wallet!

Same here! I spent $1039 in the first month! Bedrug, Tint, and headlight upgrades were the big ticket items that add up quickly.

I'm going to get the Hellwig sway bar and some Lamin-X headlight film in the next month or so and call Phase 1 done.

132,000 mile serpentine belt change. It takes about 3 minutes after you spend an hour trying to get the engine cover off.

And a special shout out to Casey's Frontier Chevrolet in Livingston, Tn. for leaving the rear 8mm bolt out and losing the side torx head bolt when doing my spark plugs. You idiots saved me 2 minutes.

Well, I used the Colorado to jumpstart my mother in law's '51 5-window chevy! Gotta say, chevy really upped their interior game since 1951, but somehow my 3.6l sounds anemic compared to her 350ci
Also swapped my WA plates for WI plates shortly after this picture. The clerk at the DMV mentioned with some amazement that I was the only person she had seen today that qualified for "Truck" plates in the under 4500 lbs category!

I went with the 265/70/17 as well.


I do a lot of driving so the lighter weight of the standard load tire works great for me.




I like the wheels you have on your truck. What offset are those?
