    ive got an 03 s10 zr2 which is what got replaced by the colorado/canyon. i run a 6'9 fisher minute mount which weights about 470 my truck seems to hold it just fine. Im not sure if they changed anything in the suspension or frame to make it more light duty but id check that first

    i met a guy the other night with a new colorado, with a 7 foot blizzard plow, and he loved it.

    I've seen a guy around with a Fisher LD on a four door Canyon. I have no idea if he made any suspension mods though. My mechanic has a four door Colorado with a Fisher Homesteader and loves it. J.

    no, hopefully this year i will win the landscaping...Look at it when you get a chance, they guy last year put stone over mulch that was already piled up way to high. Now all the stone is on the sidewalk and you can see the red mulch through the thin layer of stone.

    haha yeah i saw that, i used to eat alot of taco bell, and my brother and i used to laugh all the time at how ugly it all looked. i dont know if i'd want that contract tho it looks like a ***** to maintain, it has that steep bank on the drivethrough side, that just washes out, and tons of garbage.
