Straight swapped my 4wd wheels/tyres for these 22" x 9.5" wheels with low profile tyres. They're a bit too wide so not sure if they'll stay on long term but I like the look better.
Yep. Took a pic of the bed too.nice. An 08 with v6?
Thanks! What differences have you noticed? I know the front end is different and we don't have the rear suicide door on the extra cab. Other than that I thought they were pretty similar.Nice ride!
There certainly are some distinctive differences between the Chevy and Holden Colorados
It's a V6 out of our Holden Commodore. It's only a 3.6L. This is about the most high performance version we get, other options are 2.4 litre 4 cylinder or a 3 litre turbo diesel. We get those engines in our SS Commodores but none of our trucks have V8's, even newer models. No idea why.So, what kind of V6 does Holden put in their Colorados?
Is it like the GM 4.3L V6?
Did they also have a 5.3L V8 option?
I hear the Aussies are pretty wild down there, so what there a 6.2L V8 option?
I agree it isn't that much, my S10 Blazer has the 4.3 and 160,000 miles and is way healthier than my Colorado. These engines are known for timing chain issues and sludging up. I've only owned the car for 6 months and I've pulled the rocker covers and flushed the engine twice. There will be an LS swap in this trucks future.125k miles is nothing.
I normally get at least 250k out of my engines, but then again I like to tinker with my vehicles and keep them in good shape.
Yeh we do, I've had some close calls but never hit one. They are especially bad at night, there's always dead kangaroos on the side of highways from trucks hitting them.So, do you guys have like kangaroos that jump out in front of cars sometimes as they are driving down the highway?
Here in the southern part of the US, we have cows that do that sometimes and it can total a vehicle depending of course on how big the cow or bull is.
I always heard in Australia they had a lot of jumpy kangaroos
Great idea on the gas tank. You should be able to get a pretty big tank, or at least larger than stock!
Yes, you can. There are so many they are classified as a pest, you just need to apply for a permit and there's a limit to how many each person can shoot.Man, my dream would be to put in like a 40 gallon tank!
That way I wouldn't have to stop fo petro as often on road trips.
kangaroos make me jumpy
I guess you can't shoot them to thin out the herd?
Are they protected by the gubment?
