Checking out the previous months I don’t know if I can compete with the other trucks but here goes anyway!

I have a 19 Colorado LT with the V6. In no particular order the mods go,
Lockable Trifold Tonneau
Black rear bow tie emblem
Front glow emblem in black
Weather tech front/rear splash guards
Running boards in chrome
3/4 lights on running boards
Tow mirrors with accent/reverse lighting
RC 2” Level kit
Interior LED accent Lights

My favorite memory with my truck (I call her The Blue Beauty!) is hard to pin down there’s so many! One that sticks out at the moment is when I finished playing basketball with a few buddies I hadn’t seen in years, the didn’t know I was even here since they didn’t see my old Nissan. So when we finished up it was dark and as we walked away I said, let me show you what I drive! The oohs and ahhs when all the lights came on was awesome and it was a great time getting all the compliments haha. When I do the remote start it’s just my amber LEDs on and the glow emblem and I love the way it looks against the paint in the moonlight. This truck is my home away from home and I couldn’t imagine driving anything else right now!

2017 Z71 Midnight Edition
OEM floor liners, step rails, and bed cover
10” shallow mount powered subwoofer
Brushed metal vinyl wrap on some interior trim
Matte black on mirror caps, door handles, gas tank cover, grille, wheels, rally stripes, fog light bezels, badges, and emblems
LEDs for the cab and ditch lights
Front air dam delete
1.5” leveling kit
1.5” body lift
1.5” wheel spacers
255/75/R17s

Gotta say my favorite aspect is that I did all of these mods myself and on a low budget. Super proud of myself as a first timer. Even though there are some imperfections and things I would do differently, she is one of a kind.

My favorite aspect of this truck is the nimbleness and size. Being able to get into tight spots and maneuver tight areas compared to a full size truck is excellent. It also is the perfect tow vehicle for my family’s Clipper pop up camper.

2020 colorado wt 4x4

1.5 inch body lift
2 inch wheel soacers
17x9 +18 offset slingshot wheels
285/70/17 ridge graps

Best part of the truck is capability. light as hell and fast and can get through anything in just 2wd honestly. i’ve only had to use 4wd once or twice. this thing is just a beast and it looks great with some mods all done in my driveway.

Hard to list my favorite thing about it after going from a base model bone stock single cab Sierra. I'd say my favorite thing is all of it.....the little things that you usually only get with the Silverado/Sierra.

Tyger steps eibach pro trucksprings and shocks 2019 18x8.5 wheels 285/65/18 Michelins low profile tool box. Trifecta tune soler throttle controller. Thing I like most about it is of course the looks and way it drives. Sounds weird but with the steps it makes it easier for my elderly mom to get in than most vehicles. I get to take her to doctors on regular basis 🤪

Mine actually prefers going in “Fred”. My trucks name lol. She says it’s easier for her to climb up and in than to get down into her beetle. She has massive back problems.

I have always owned a truck ever since I was able to drive. I have had all the major brands at one point or another. Then I went a few years with a car, a Camaro to be exact. While the Camaro was a fun car I really missed having a truck. The kids are grown and the truck would be just be my daily commuter. The 2nd Gen Colorado just appealed to me. The styling and size of the extended cab while keeping a functional 6ft bed are great.
