    The 2018+ trucks have a 4WD indicator light in the gauge cluster, you don't need the ZR2's Off-Road pages to know it's in 4WD. 2017 and older models, like mine, only have the indicator on the 4WD knob. On to my review. I bought my 2017 Canyon Denali CCLB 4WD with the 2.8 Duramax new a little...

    Best Bronco for overlanding

    If you don't think the Bronco offers anything over a Subaru if the base ground clearance is similar then I think you need to do more research and get some more experience under your belt. They are wildly different vehicles with very different capabilities, base ground clearance is just one spec...

    Best Bronco for overlanding

    I think if you’re planning on it being a daily and driving it, not trailering it, to far-away locations I would avoid the Sasquatch package and stick with a more streetable setup. Just my $0.02. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Colorado slide in camper build

    If you’re not sold on a slide-in and want a clean slate to start with, basically building the inside however you want, check out the Four Wheel Camper Project M. That is likely where I’ll be headed in a few years or so. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Will I Fit into any Midsized Trucks? Tall People Problems...

    Other than it being too wide for various trails and no room to recline the seat...yeah, ok, no compromises...and not what the OP is looking for. ;)

    Will I Fit into any Midsized Trucks? Tall People Problems...

    Subject of the thread is asking for mid-size options and the OP mentions wanting a smaller truck for the trails they run, Tundra is a full-size truck. Not sure how that's the solution...

    Will I Fit into any Midsized Trucks? Tall People Problems...

    I had a chance to drive my wife’s cousin’s F150 super crew with the 2.7EB and 10-speed on some trails in Colorado this summer (they were going on an overnight backpacking hike and her truck got a puncture so I dropped them off at the trail head and had her tire replaced). The 2.7 and the...

    Will I Fit into any Midsized Trucks? Tall People Problems...

    I included my inseam for a reason, being 6'4" tall doesn't mean everyone that's 6'4" will have the same proportions. Some are longer in the legs and some are longer in the torso, there are people 6'4" with a 32" inseam (short legs), there are some with a 40" inseam (long legs). So thanks for...

    Will I Fit into any Midsized Trucks? Tall People Problems...

    I’m 6’1” (wear 36” inseam) and 215LB, love my 2017 GMC Canyon. No problems with anything, never bump the switches on the dash with my knee (still can’t figure out how people are doing that). I’ve put 53k on it so far with many 12+ hour driving days and I was plenty comfortable. Sent from my...

    Colorado/Canyon Duramax Diesel DEAD in 2023

    Not that I care, but funny how a thread about the baby Duramax trucks turned into a Ford vs Toyota thread and they're not even diesels. :D

    Colorado/Canyon Duramax Diesel DEAD in 2023

    Those images aren't showing instant MPG, they very clearly show the avg MPG for the trip meter mileage shown. So, not sure what you're going off about with that comment.

    Colorado/Canyon Duramax Diesel DEAD in 2023

    Well, the original post and video were based on assumptions that at this point seem to have been false. GM has said they’ve secured a continuous supply of the 2.8 for the foreseeable future. GM was also awarded the contract to supply the military with a light ISV which is based on the ZR2 and is...

    Is there no one building a Titan Diesel?

    Yeah, the 2.8L DMAX is an interesting engine. It's based on the VMM engine but GM has made changes to it and GM builds it themselves in Thailand. It has solenoid injectors instead of the typical piezo injectors of other modern diesels, I think they made some other changes but am blanking. The...

    Is there no one building a Titan Diesel?

    I'd be interested in hearing why folks aren't checking out the Canyon/Colorado with the baby Duramax when shopping around, is it the size or...? Honestly, I didn't consider these initially when I was looking either as I assumed that because they were mid-size then their towing and payload would...

    Is there no one building a Titan Diesel?

    The Ram 1500 EcoDiesel runs a 3.0L V6 made by VMM in Italy, it’s not a Benz diesel. It’s also shown to be problematic due to oil cooler failures resulting in oil contamination in the coolant. FCA has been replacing engines under warranty due to this issue. I was also looking at a Titan XD with...
