Does anyone know much about the differences in spray in bed liners? I'm pretty sure I'm going to go with the Rhino Liner, but there are a few different brands of liners out there. Is there a "best" spray in liner?

Companies that make accessories are just like vehicle production companies. You'll find one person who absolutely swears by the first company and abhores the second while someone else swears by the second company and abhores the first.
The only way you'll find out what is best for *you* and what *you* like is by looking at the raw data from the companies individually. If you find one that better fits your needs or wants better than another company, be ready to hear from people who say you've made a good decision and others who say that you know nothing about trucks because of your decision.

I have a 1994 S10 SS and was wondering how popular they are. I will be selling it within the next 6 months because I need a V8 to haul my boat and i am trying to get an idea how rare this truck is. I know what bluebook is but thought it might be worth an ad in Autotrader.

...the cheapest, most basic work truck I can get. How much is the average price of the base S10? I've heard that the 4-cylinder engine is rather anemic. Is there any truth to this? Are there any incentives, rebates, leases, etc. available on the S10? I've seen the Toyota Tacoma listed on Edmunds for $12K. How does the S10 compare to the Tacoma, and can one really get a Tacoma for so little in the real world?

i was looking for a stripper truck 4 banger a few months ago. With incentives the best price i could get was like $11,700. I could get a silverado with a V6 for like $14K

I'm approaching 3,000 miles on my 2003 S10. It's equipped with the 4.3 V6 and locking differential. According to the owner's manual I am supposed to drain and replace the rear end fluid at the first oil change. Has anyone done this? Anyone know what I'm talking about?
#25 of 28 Colorado has Izusu roots?

I own an '87 S-10 4x4 extended cab pickup. 2.8V6, 4-spd auto transmission. 279,000 miles, original engine. It is my daily driver, I commute 60 miles round-trip per day. 17 to 20 MPG. I love this truck, it is the best vehicle I have ever owned! But this truck is getting tired, and won't last forever! So, when I first heard of the new Chevy Colorado I was excited. But when I heard that it is basically an Izusu designed truck with an American designed engine (the I-4, and I-5), my excitement soon melted away. Any truth about this Izusu connection? If true, then my initial impression and opinion is that the Colorado is no better than the fake S-10 Izusu Hombre (which is an American designed truck with an Izusu engine).

If you are looking for a stripped down 4-banger s-10 my suggestion would be to look used rather than new. I am not a fan of buying anything new in the car arena. Too much of a hit in value right off the lot. I would prefer someone else take that hit and then I will buy it from them down the road a few years.
I picked up my 98 S-10 4 cyl - 5 speed at a local auto auction for a winning bid of $3300 bucks. 60,000 miles and in great shape! I'll take that deal over new any day!

oh I decided against a new truck. I almost got a base model sierra but i thought long and hard and decided to put it off and drive my truck and probably get a new one in 06. I need to think about buying a home in the next yr. I dont need a car payment and house payment (my current truck is paid off)

Hello to all...I used to have a 98 S-10 LS ext. cab, V-6. I bought it used in 2000 with 90,000 miles. The guy that had it before me must have taken real good care of it becuase it had no major problems. When I traded it in, it had 105,000 miles and the only 2 problems it had was a fan clutch going bad and the 3rd door rattled. The only thing I had to replace in a year of ownership was the front brake pads, they were the original brakes! The rear brakes were still good.
I have owned 3 other GM's over the years and the S-10 was the best I ever owned.
