I have done every competetion with the z71 colorado my ranger kicked its ass off roading with weaker tires I beat the colorado in flex and clearance not to mention he bottomed out and got stuck way before I had any issues. In speed the 4.0 eats the 3.5l chevy alive esp when you throw in a 4.10

That being said who cares wanna know what can outrun a ranger and a colorado? A fucking pontiac ecotec sunfire. If you like colorados cool beans for you but as far as small trucks go I will walk before I drive one. The s10 was a grave loss in the shadow of the colorado long live zr2 and down with the fake z71. Its sad when a truck converts a chevy guy into a ford one.
Sure about that?

Pretty sure the Colorado 4 cyl. is quicker than the Ranger 4 cyl.

Don't get me wrong, I really like my 2.3. But the Colorado I drove was quicker.

Why? He is doing nothing wrong, you guys are just jumping on him. I'm not going to ban another member, who is abiding by the rules, because certain members can't constrain themselves.

"trucks must be fairly equal" and they compete for time. Fairly simple IMHO.

They never said anything about lifted trucks. Regardless, it would be "fairly equal" trucks so its a moot point, lifted, lowered, stock, sounds like it doesn't really matter.
