Courtjester, what's that color called? I've never seen it before but it looks great on that truck.

I think it's called bronze. I figured it was more of a $hi# color. I'm not real cracked up with the color personally. Considering contacting Snickers to get a few stickers and charge them for advertising. It was a left over 2011 model with 18 miles on it. Apparently it was ugly enough that no one even wanted to test drive it much. But with an original sticker of 54k and a get-it-the-hell-off-my-lot-price of 38k, I couldn't argue. It's starting to grow on me though.
It is the best truck I've ever owned by far. Leather, heated and cooled seats, remote start, back up camera, voice activated navigation, reads my text messages and e-mails to me while I drive with a robot chick voice, sun roof, blue tooth calling, and I can plug in a flash drive and play my own music and even pick the song or artist I want by pushing a button and saying it.
Still looking for the blow job button. It's there, just not found it yet.

I drive a 1990 f150 xlt 4.9 inline six with a 5 speed. It is a proven drive train as good as any and better than most. I paid 1400.00 4 years ago. Spent a couple hundred on shocks, master cylinder and few other minor repairs. We pull a camper 5 hours to NW Arkansas 2 times a year with it. I am looking for a 16-17 foot boat to put behind the camper. We won't go to NW Ar. pulling both camper and boat but I plan on jumping on I55 and going up to 100 miles to some of the area lakes. Those inline 6 engines will pull more than they can stop.

Also my truck note is 0.00
insurance liability and unins is 167.00 every 6 months
Tags are 30.00 yearly.
Mpg is 14/17

I am probably going to replace it in about 6 years. I might buy something built in this century. I'll be watching the 3.6 v6 ecoboost to see if the twin turbos hold up or are problematic. I like the fact they have as much torque as the 5.4 v8 and get close to 25 mpg.

Wow that's alot of cool gizmos and dodads, mine doesn't have all that stuff, just the XLT.

If it had that mystical button I'd have found it already.

Is it a 5 cylinder engine? I love the Colorado but have heard some not so pleasant things about the online 5. The 5.3 version would be pretty bad@$$!
