6″ lifted 2005 Colorado Z71


Thanks Edward!  Great post

"Well this is what you get when you combine a 16 year old jock with a stock Black 05 Colorado, time, and a good wad of cash. I'm Edward Hammond and this is my Colorado. Bought her stock in August of '10. First thing that happened was a 4" Tuff Country Suspension lift. Once I finished putting that in, next came wheels and tires. I'm running Black 16" Moto Metal 951s with 4.5" backspacing wrapped in LT285/75/16 Mickey Thompson Baja Mtzs. Next i removed the chrome letters on the sides of the truck. After that was completed i pulled off my taillights, sanded off the factory clearcoat and put on 2 coats of NiteShades tint. About this time i also painted my Bowtie grille icon Gloss Black. Then i decided she wasnt tall enough quite yet. i fabricated my own rear shackles to net a 2" rear lift and cranked the torsion bars up front to level it out. Stock these trucks are about 34 inches from ground to fender at the center of the tires. I'm sitting right about 44.5 at all four tires. She's my pride and joy and I'm happy with all the work I put into making it into what she is today. Thanks for checking out my work!"
