I purchased my 2016 Colorado Crew Cab Short Bed Duramax to build into an overland camper. Currently I have:
An ARE Cap
Adding a Baja Rack to mount to the cap for the RTT
The Icon Stage 2 lift has been ordered
4 275 70 17 BGF All Terrain K02s have been ordered
These modifications plus all safety, recovery and camping gear will be loaded for a few shake down trips this spring/summer and then a trip out to Ouray Co for the Alpine loop and surrounding areas, Moab and some of the other parks in Utah depending on the heat. Initially it will be focused on sight seeing (using as many dirt tracks as possible), camping, fishing, hiking, exploring ect. with my wife and two kids.
Later in the summer the plan is to add
Under body and body protection
I spoke to an ARB rep and a shop that sells ARB and the rumor is they have brought over the summit bar, sliders, body protection and a bunch of other stuff for the Holden Colorado and fit it to a Chevy Colorado. So, trying to get some early release ARB kit...hopefully they bring a rear bumper with a swing away tire carrier.
