Not very familiar with that song other than the Rage version. That said, Tom Joad is still one of my favourites off of Renegades. Their MC5 cover stands out in my mind on that disc too.

Its not just about having an engine sized space under the hood & between the fenders. To add the 3.6 to the Silverado you have to design the truck to accomodate a 2nd engine family. That adds cost,...

Where do you get the idea that there is only a single reason (fuel economy) for using the 3.6 instead of the 4.3? The Silverado & Colorado each have their own requirements. Some are directly related...
