Ok well first I'm 16 years old and my dad is a manager for a car delearship, basically meaning I can get what I want for my first car pretty cheap. Anyways I was thinking about an 05 Colorado Extreme so if you could tell me some good and bad new about that truck and some sweet upgrades that would be great. Thanks

get an 06 to 07 though. then you have less chance of have the head issue. No chance if you get an 07. There kinda hard to find unless theres one at your dads dealership. I love mine.

if his dad is the manager at the dealership I could think it would be safe to assume any head problems would be taken care of. As far as upgrades you can find anything you want whether its suspension, wheels, cold air kits, exhausts and stereo........you came to the right place. Oh and by the way will you go buy that truck already.

Thanks for all the comments back, Yea my bro had a Colorado for his first truck(which he totaled, loved the truck, but I guess that's what you get when your showing off for the ladies) now he's got a Camaro Z28, cant wait till I can bring the Rado back in the family. Going to get it next week I'm not sure If I want all black or red and get a black or carbon fiber hood on it, well see. Thanks
