Off-road capability now comes in a smaller package.
The Chevrolet Colorado pickup truck is offered in a variety of off-road trim levels including the Z71 package, ZR2, and the more hardcore ZR2 Bison. These trucks will handle even the most grueling trails but you'll have to pay almost $50,000 if you want the Bison. If this is just a bit too expensive or you already have a Colorado that you'd like to take off-roading, Rocky Ridge Trucks has you covered.
Rocky Ridge is a popular custom truck builder that offers lifted versions of the Nissan Titan and Frontier through Nissan dealerships. The truck builder has just announced a new K2 package for the Colorado, which will offer extreme off-road capability in a smaller package with a more custom feel.
The package includes a ton of performance upgrades including a six-inch Rocky Ridge suspension system, nitrogen-charged performance shocks, heavy-duty skid plates, heavy-duty steering knuckles, front and rear cross members, front performance struts, and anti-wrap rear blocks. There are no changes to the engine, so you'll get either GM's 3.6-liter V6 with 308 horsepower or the 2.8-liter turbo-diesel with 181 hp and 396 lb-ft of torque.
On the exterior, the package adds body-colored fender flares, off-road side steps, black ceramic exhaust tips, body-color Bowties, K2 door emblems, a Rocky Ridge tailgate emblem, and Rocky Ridge windshield banner. Inside, you will also get leather seats with logos on the headrests.
The K2 Colorado rides on 18-inch black off-road wheels wrapped in 33-inch Mickey Thompson ATZ P3 tires. Rocky Ridge says customers will also receive a four-wheel alignment, road force balancing, and Hypertech system calibration. All of these additions carry a three-year/ 36,000-mile warranty, giving owners peace of mind. As additional options, Rocky Ridge will also offer a spray-in bed liner, a Vengeance front bumper with LED lights, a Vengeance rear bumper, and a matte or fade exterior.
