    In another thread I've been considering putting a UTE bed on my older a Toyota 4x4 but the truck is a money pit. Vehicles always depreciate and soak up cash flow no matter what. My attitude when it comes to vehicles is generally buy them new run them till the bitter end.

    I'm not really a GM fan and I've heard lots of bad feedback about the old S-10 series. I'm not sure what to think of the newer generation Colorado/Canyon trucks. This week I hope to price out this truck shipped and delivered from a dealer.

    Payload is higher than the standard full size half ton trucks with this bed installed. I really don't want to get into a half ton vs. 3/4 ton debate. My business model is strictly smaller lawns keep the business essentially solo - limited seasonal help & typically smaller lighter equipment and I let the other companies chase after the bigger properties with more capital investment.

    I'm frankly concerned about long term reliability with this GM platform. So what is the word out there on the Colorado/Canyon platform?

    Input? :waving:




    Tack on Tail Gate ramp.
