New Colorado owner from Texas

Since I am getting old and shrinking I decided to shrink my 2007 Silverado 2500 LT 4x4 extended cab diesel down to a 2017 Colorado Z71 4x4 extended cab 3.6 gasser. I'll call him Junior.

Actually I just sold my toyhauler so I no longer need a diesel and since the Silverado was 10 years old it was time for a change. I haven't even taken delivery of my Colorado yet. All I will be towing now is a 5'x10' utility trailer with my Rhino SxS and generator on it.

Welcome to C'Fans
You aren't shrinking. It's gravitational adjustment.
Post some bits when Jr shows up.

I find having a smaller truck just a lot easier to deal with and her towing capacity is nothing to sneeze at...been very happy with my 2016!
