Finally!!! *Pic heavy*

Well it has been a long time BUT I'M BACK IN 355!!

For the past 6-8 months I've been hunting for a replacement truck and while there were a few that fell through I finally got one.

At the end January I found a truck on craigslist... in Texas, so I called the owner told him I was interested and that it was kind of a odd deal because I live out of state and was financing the truck, and he was a blessing very helpful and understanding through the whole process on Feb 14th we got all the paperwork done at the bank and I technically owned the truck at that point. Jump 3 months, one payment and a missed flight later I caved and had the truck transported (I wanted to fly out and drive back) 2 days later it arrived this morning.

Quick Specs
2007 Regular Cab ZQ8
3.7/4L60e
3.73 rear non posi
K&N intake
Throttle body spacer

Here are all the pics the PO sent me of the truck.



















I've Been obsessing over these pictures for 3 months.

And let's go thru my day

A Wild Colorado Appeared!


Gas station Pic Right after picking it up


Dropping off the GMC (don't mind the missing hood doing some engine work)


TPMS light is on so I went to discount for some air did not solve problem.

and another I think this was with my iPhone


Stopped to get lunch just outside of downtown (caught the wife)


I can't tell if its been lowered or not other than these block's it feels a lot lower than my old truck but it also has bigger tires 235/55/18


and the fun begins


Started with the wheels


Money shot


*cough*sponser me*cough*

Filthy and I forgot my foam cannon


This worked better than I thought it would


I don't have a drying process so truck's still a little wet









The truck came out really good but there are some issues

Deep scratches behind driver door on cab


top of pass fender between hood I've never seen anything like this before


console clip broken



other than that it's real nice, interior detail tomorrow not nearly as bad as the exterior was but I'm gonna tear it apart anyway, paint correction later this week.


wife wanted starbucks took a pic


Last pic before heading home Babies R us parking lot



So far I love this truck I really missed driving a mini truck.

and I'll end this with my immediate plans of action
remove red bowties
replace little bowtie on tailgate
swap roll pan for regular bumper
130MPH speedo with red needle's
Z71 flares
2012 C6 steering wheel

and a LS swap starts as soon as I get a deposit on the drivetrain.

Thanks for reading please follow me on Instagram:ZQ8inCO

Re: Finally!!! *Pic heavy*

you lucky fucking bastard. That truck has the ebony interior and the nice door sills! Fuckin A! That is a hell of a find, like a hell of a find. How much did you end up buying it for? I'm actually really jealous right now.

Re: Finally!!! *Pic heavy*

Welcome back to the party

1. Have you confirmed the 130mph speedo works with an I5
2. The C6 steering wheel? Bolt on and what are the plans with the airbag?

7K plus taxes and thanks it's almost perfect for me I just wish it was a stick with the hyper silver wheels but I've been looking and I couldn't find one lol

And I hate rollpans always have so it's gonna go as soon as I find a decent bumper to put on I'm just glad it's not welded in

Have not confirmed but I thought that the only issue was that the older trucks didn't have TPMS and the light stays on?


And I do not believe that it bolts on so either cut/weld new shaft or swap if they interchange, and I'll probably put the colorado airbag in a C6 airbag cover

Re: Finally!!! *Pic heavy*

Well this morning my GMC got stolen...

Colorado wasn't tho, Adam's was having some event so me and the misses headed up there and I got a bunch of goodies.

nothing happened on the truck yet I'm just really enjoying it, but I think the front coils are cut the ride is terrible and the bump stop's are pretty banged up I need to order some QA1's ASAP but I'm qurious is the rear height adjustable I know the front is


Nice find I found one at a JY out of state for $100 just waiting for pics to confirm it's 130MPH

Re: Finally!!! *Pic heavy*

well about a week ago I hit my truck rear ended another truck because the brakes are garbage


Sucks... so I ordered new headlights from amazon all 4 for $120 not bad truck needed new ones anyway old ones were very foggy


I couldn't salvage the grille so the truck sit's like that until the new grille arrives at the dealer

I ordered spark plugs, supersparkz, thermostat, oil filter and the resonator box to valve cover hose, and I ordered seat bolt cover's, battery terminal cover's and throttle body bolt's to remove the stupid TB spacer. still waiting for the transmission fluid and filter, engine oil ,diff fluid and dexcool


and today I got the 130MPH speedo

and scored on some Z71 flares for $50
they aren't too bad I'll probably have them repainted when I get a new fender and rear bumper

also I like this pic


Roll pan is starting to grow on me.
