I humbly submit my quite modest build:
Evil R2D2
ZR2 Sliders
ZR2 take off wheels and tires
Eibach Explorer 2.0 kit via Mike Peak
Tinted fronts to match rears and a little strip across the top: here she is today as is just rained on and covered in pollen
409300

Here she is earning her new wheels (wife bribe)
409301

And here is the Evil R2D2 I love so much. It’s still my favorite thing because I get in and smile every time I see him. He’s become my little copilot.
409302

My favorite part of this truck is how well it replaces my 2002 avalanche and my sports car, both of which I traded on this puppy. My favorite memory is getting into it at the dealership and within 30 seconds saying to out loud to myself “&@$k yeah!! This is mine now” kinda loving running her around with no topper right now...

Stubby Antenna
BakFlip Trifold Bed Cover
Smoked Spyder Taillights and 3rd Brakelight
Muffler Delete
Window Rain Deflectors
2" Bora Wheel Spacers
6" RC Lift
275/70/18 Nitto Ridge Graps
RGB Rock Light Underglow

OEM Fender Flares
Baja Designs 30" Amber Light Bar, SAE Foglights, and Ditch Lights
Bison Grille
Air Designs Hood Scoop
2 Rockford Fosgate 10" Subs, 4 6.5" Door Speakers, and 2 Tweeters; all to 2 Amps
+ a few more that I figured were too small to count

2 Amber Chaselights, Rocky Road Sliders, and Multicam Black wrap are on the way

Really love this truck and I look forward to finishing this build!

This is Nyx (Greek goddess of night) 2016 z71
Currently on a 2in level, RTT, hidden light bar, skid plates for front and oil pan. Still a work in progress. I love that she has done almost everything I've asked of her, on road or off. My favorite memory was the day I got her. I always wanted a 4x4 S10. Finally got what I wanted but better.

I have many memories that I share with this truck. The countless hours I've worked on it and the new problems popping up every week are a pain, but I'll keep this truck till the very end. One of my favorites was when I was with a couple of buddies from school and we were driving down the highway and a guy in an Audi flew by us. We get to the next light and I floored it. I gapped him and the look on his face was hilarious. He then accused me of spraying XD.

Wish me luck on the lift kit! I also have to put new axles in (again) since the cheapy lift kit puts too much angle on the axles. Can't wait to see the other entries :)

I never considered owning a truck, about 3 years ago I saw a black Colorado with a lift and method rims. Since then I've been saving pennies and establishing credit to purchase this 2020 Colorado. Her name is Lucy, have more plans for her, fiberwerx glass, long travel suspension.
What I love is that I can go trailing on my off time, load up the back for family camping, and enough power to get me to work on time. The wifi is great for long hauls with my daughter.

I’ve owned this truck for almost 5 years now, bought it off the dealership in fall 2016, so obviously choosing my best memory with it is gonna be hard. There is nothing I haven’t done with or in this truck! 😅 I really like it cause it’s easy to drive and park in the city, even fits in almost every underground parking, it turns heads everywhere I go, people don’t believe me when I tell ‘em it’s 5 years old and has over 150 000 km’s on it lol, and it’s capable enough to get the dirty job done during the weekend, whether it’s driving to my remote cabin in the woods, hauling the sleds all the way up the mountains to find some fresh powder or simply going for a long drive and doing it comfortably and with great fuel economy! As of right now I cannot think of other mods I should do to it, except replacing the stock shocks with Fox 2.0’s when they wear out and then maybe increase a little tire size.

Good luck to every one, I see plenty of awesome rigs out there!

This doesn't seem to be the correct place to post my entry, but after clicking the enter "HERE" URL which led me right here, so here it goes, my 2007 z71 Colorado has been a beast thus far, bought October 2018 with 55k miles, z71 3.7 i5 now has 104k miles, work for the county assessor, driving all conditions in Nebraska, in town, outta town, county gravel roads, and minimum maintenance roads from loose gravel to snow covered clay, 4wd has been amazing, just put on General Grabber ATX, best tires I've ever had.
