Kaiser's Red Rock
I never did a new member thread or anything and had my Colorado for several months now so thought I would start a build thread and show everyone my, what I think is pretty cool, truck.
Picked up late April/early May.
2016 Chevy Colorado Red Rock
LT v6 4x4 crew cab and short bed.
Only package I got with purchase was the towing.
Drove it home from the dealer and immediately left for over week vacation and returned to drive a 400 mile each way miny roadtrip to Vermont to see my brothers graduation.
Lived just outside Boston, Mass when I got it and now moved ~40 miles away to central Mass. Still work just north of Boston so have a 45 miles commute each way plus go to class at night couple days of the week. Racked up over 11k miles already!
Coming from a small, standard, sports car, it's much nicer driving in traffic now and being able to use the vehicle for so much more. Used it extensively while moving and also helped both siblings move. Camping and other activities are much easier now as well. Also going to be towing my parents 25ft pontoon boat soon as they don't have a vehicle able to tow it.
Overall getting mid 20's avg mpg which I'm pretty happy with. Excited to have some fun with the eventual snow and being able to handle it better!
Anyway, started making my mark on it as soon as I got it. Started with the easy stuff, removing the stupid dealer logos and upgrading the head lights with some Sylvannia Ultras low and high and added a K&N drop-in filter. Also put some LED's in the reverse, cargo and license lights.
Next I added some protection to the door sills with some of the stick on saftey step stuff. Looks almost factory imo and adds some protection from shoes and everything.
Changed out the arm rest with the leather Canyon cover.
Put a roll-up tonneau cover on with Dee Zee bed mat and factory tailgate protector. Also added some bull rings to help with cargo.
Plasti-dipped the emblems and soon will wrap the bowties.
Most recent was Westin steps that I like and help with my girlfriend getting in and out.
And by far the best mod so far is the Trifecta tune! Such a different vehicle with it and boy does the Colorado need it. Very happy with that.
Coming soon some Husky floor mats Done
Also soon will be wrapping interior trim to a CF look
Change the front grill and possibly head lights.
Add some small LED units front and rear. Done
I like the aftermarket tail lights but not a priority.
Eventually some different wheels will complete the look.
I'm sure there will be multiple small mods in between.
When I first got it.
