DURAMAX DIESEL ZR2
This Chevy Colorado can crawl! The Duramax diesel motor paired with 4.56 gears and 35" Falken Wildpeak mud terrain tires makes this ZR2 an IFS monster that can crawl through some tough trails.
The 4" BDS lift kit retains the factory DSSV multimatic shocks / dampers that help in making the ZR2 a great high speed desert runner. With the addition of this lift, tires and gearing, this Colorado ZR2 can do both; crawl and run!
A weakness of these trucks, compared to a Jeep is the visibility from drivers seat. The long hood and low, slanted window make it more difficult to see your tire placement. To resolve this problem, this Colorado ZR2 has an added forward camera that displays on the dash.
Factory E-Lockers all around put traction at all four tires on this ZR2 at the touch of a button.
Keith is just getting started in this monster of Colorado, but has plenty of trails on his list to run soon.
