Factory didn't give you exactly what you wanted? Discuss add-ons here!
#2 of 26 My add-ons...

Well, I guess I'll go first...
I had a Rhino liner sprayed in about two weeks afer I got the truck. So far it's great. Nothing sliding around in the back (even empty gas cans will stick on that stuff around corners). Also put a trailer hitch on myself. I ordered one from Etrailer.com with the wiring harness which made the electrical stuff easy. Also had Ziebart throw some molded mudflaps on to keep my paint from getting chipped.
I'd like to put an aux tranny cooler on it for when I tow my boat so I don't kill the tranny. I like the Hayden's OEM style with the stacked plates. I have one on my XJ and it works well and was an easy install. I just need to find out which is the return line to the tranny. Anyone know??

Does anyone have any experience with replacing the wheels/tires in a colorado/canyon? I just got a 2007 regular cab in Nov.

What wheels and tires do you currently have? I bought a 2005, 4x4, regular cab Canyon with the Z-71 package. The truck came with the "God-awful" 265/75/15 General Ameri-Trac tires. I have no understanding why, but they are the WORST tires I ever drove on. The truck was literally all over the road.
Since I primarily drive this truck in the winter, I installed a set of Bridgestone Blizzak snow tires on it within a week of getting the truck. Big improvement in ride and handling, even though the Bridgestones are "snow tires".
I do drive the truck in the summer at times, and Blizaks don't last too long in the summer, so I made a "performance upgrade" for summer use. I installed a set of 16"x8" wheels, and 245/75/16 Firestone Destination LE tires. They're the same OD as the 265/75/15s, and they worked out quite well. I don't understand why the factory didn't go this route...

i just purchased a 2007 gmc canyon and i love it but i was wanting to put a suspension lift kit on it. but one of my co-workers who puts on lift kits all the time said that i shouldn't do it because the suspension lifts that are for them are crap and it makes them ride like shit. so i was wondering if any of that was true that he said. cuz i was really wanting to lift it but i dont want to screw it up.

Anyone replaced the horn in a 2007 Colorado? I took a look at it and it looks like you have to disassemble the front grill to get to it. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
