Default 2008 Chevy Colorado - "Bad Decision"

Hey there everyone, my names Josh Newsom and I'm from Ortonville, MI. My truck is a 2008 Chevy Colorado called "Bad Decision". The truck runs a 540 BBC with a 250 shot of NOS, Turbo 400 trans, NP241 transfer case, Dana 60's fron and rear with all 35 spline upgrades and 70 shafts in the rear. Suspension is a mono leaf setup with coil shocks out back and a full leaf spring and coil shock setup up front. The frame and suspension is my old setup that I had under my last bog truck that was a 2004 Lincoln Avaitor that had a 427 BBC. Heres a few pictures from the start of things to where we are now:


The Avaitor - "Hot Rod Lincoln"









The Colorado - "Bad Decision"





























I've got tons more pictures and video, I'll post more up later tonight. Thanks for stoppin' by!

Is that a Ford 60 front turned upside down or are my eyes messed up?

I run the coil springs and leaf springs because it allows me to stay in the stock 44 class or Class 3 for some of the clubs we run with and then I can run the higher classes also. Just gives me more options when we go racing.

Nope, its a Dodge Dana 60. Just got it in the truck over the winter and im really pleased with it. Got sick of breaking axle shafts in the old Dana 44, so it was time for an upgrade.
