Any other Red Hot owners out there?

Would love to see some other Red Hot Colorados out there and the options you went with. I made a couple of few subtle modifications with a 2 inch leveling kit and larger more aggressive tires. Only thing left to do is a spray in bedliner.

Very nice! Like the extended cab version too. I have never owned a red vehicle before but something about this shade of red just pops. I actually had to see the color of it on a car as my dealer did not have my Colorado in on the lot. When they showed me the color, I immediately said order it. Very cool color.

Awesome man! Congrats. Looks great!! My first choice was Metalic silver but when I saw this color of red I was hooked. Compliments just about everywhere I go. Only bad thing is I can't sneak anywhere with this color lol. Hard to miss haha!

I'll get mine posted tonight if I can get around to it..are the Fender Flares you have stock with the car? Not custom size or anything? Also do you have the stock mud flaps on yours too? Couldn't tell.

They are factory flares. To use with stock mud flaps, you need to cut the flares to piece them together. Or use universal flaps without cutting.

Thanks for the info. I have stock mud flaps now..and thinking of ordering Factor Fender Flares. Trying to get some pics of how the Fender Flares look, Dealership is charging $105 to install the flares. $275 for the Flares it's self. Flares might be what I do.

~$200 off Amazon, and install yourself. That's how I did it, just need to drill 2 holes in each rear wheel well lip.

They are factory flares. Came stock with the truck as well as stock mud flaps. I also have the black bow tie option. The black contrasts nicely with the red hot color. You will like the flares.

Enjoying the ride of my life!

Smile My Cardinal Red Canyon

Some great looking trucks in this thread so far! Here are a couple of me & my Cardinal Red Canyon. It's nice to finally start seeing some owners enjoying their trucks and personalizing them to taste. It seems like yesterday when GMC CS said I was just the 3rd person to take delivery of a Canyon in North Carolina back on Dec 12th of 2014. It was an exciting day to say the least!
