UPDATE: Well I'm now 0 for 3 on trucks. Looked at UPS Brown one, looks like they rubbed a pole on the rear quarter passenger side, just above wheel. 3 foot long deep scratch and it was "Fresh" and into the metal. Stopped last night to talk to dealer about it. They fixed scratch...and very nicely done, but they took off the "Good" tires and alloy rims and replaced them a size smaller tire and Black steel spoke rims...It looks like Dog Carp. Found a 2018 Colorado with 4606 miles on it...Demo. Beautiful Cajun Red, go look, find someone backed into something hard enough to bend the rear bumper and mounting bracket underneath. Maybe deal and get it replace. Go last night to look at 2018 Long Box Colorado...Extremely Rare here...Gorgeous BLUE...Goodyear Kevlar tires, Tow pkg, Bose system, bed liner. Open hood to find a coating of old oil up both sides in the inner fenders, across the cross member and sprayed about 3 feet to the back. This thing must've blown a seal on the crank shaft or something and they didn't get all the oil cleaned up. Bottom line............STILL LOOKING !

Sorry, but the weight police will tell you that this truck has no payload capacity since it is stretched and a SRW truck.

I have seen stretched Ram Mega Cabs that have been around for sometime. One of the companies that will stretch a Mega Cab truck also offers this in a DRW truck.

I don't know what you are towing, but if you have been using a 2500 series truck, you may be disappointed in the tow performance of a Colorado.

Picked up the New replacement last night. Cajun Red 2019 Chevy Colorado Z71. Should handle my 36' Cherokee just fine.

Kidding folks. Big Cherokee is going bye-bye and I've downsized.

Blew coffee on screen from that one.
Biggest thing I'll be towing now is a Utility trailer with a Polaris 400HO on board. Assorted building material for doing some additions to our cabin in Missouri. Since we got the cabin last fall, the Cherokee just kinda sits in the driveway. Haven't used it at all this year.
