Would like to introduce myself!

Just picked up my 2019 Colorado LT in Pacific Blue Pearl tonight.

Traded in my Jeep Wrangler for this beauty, after a three week hunt for this color and configuration. Went through several dealers to find one, none wanted to work with me or were getting crazy deals worked up.

Found a great dealer who was willing to make fine one I wanted (not push their own inventory) and do a dealer trade and we made it work for everyone!

I’m in love!!!

I also had to search out for my Pacific Blue. The dealer I was going through said there wasn't one in a 500 mile radius. Told me they had one coming in in a few weeks. I happened to go on Auto Trader, typed in what I was looking for and bam, found one about 200 miles from me. After a couple of e-mails and phone conversations, I worked out a deal better than the local dealer. I couldn't have been happier.

I love it! The dealer I used wasn’t one I normally would have used, but, they were fantastic!!

Where did you get the bed cover?!? I need one.

I got my Tonneau cover off a guy on Ebay "got chrome" is his name. It's the Truxedo Pro X-14 it was listed at $539. A fellow on this website said to offer him $500 with free shipping. I did and he excepted my offer. Two days later I had it and a Bed-rug sitting on my front porch. I'm thinking about doing the Rally Strips in Silver on the hood and tailgate. What.do you think? Then that's it I'm done with the modifications! 😉

Congrats on the new ride and Welcome to our happy little corner of the net, and to Colorado Fans. There is a BIG fridge on the back porch with anything you can think of in it...help yourself...of course only take what you can LEGALLY have. Make yourself at home on one of the big fluffy couches, kick your shoes off, put your feet up on one of the tables, yes we are allowed to do that, mom's, wives’, husbands, girlfriend’s and boyfriends here don't care....and take it easy.



oh...btw....every once in a while a food fight breaks out...so you may not want to wear nice clothes here.

Welcome!!

2019 LT, Leather Interior ,Nav, Premium Sound System, 17" Wheels, Rhino Lined bed, Ceramic coated, clear bra.

I assume you mean Pacific Blue Metallic since the premium blue was available last year.

That's the color of my truck, and I really wanted a red but it wasn't available at the dealer (the only ones I found in the trims I wanted were GMCs costing about $6k more). It's really grown on me though and I've gotten a few stray compliments on it--something that I don't remember happening with my past vehicle colors.

If you mean some other color---nevermind.

Yep, I meant Pacific Blue Metallic. I know they had the Centennial Edition Blue last year, but I wanted a ZR2. The blue for that was a lighter shade than this one.
