I just finished a training course for their locking differentials. I can honestly say I am impressed with the options GM gave this truck as how it can use it's front and rear lockers. It doesn't look like a typically gimmicky option, it will make the ZR2 quite the formidable factory off-roader. I can however foresee the front locker becoming an issue for me as this truck will be put in the hands of the less experienced drivers who are going to try to turn sharply on a good traction rock surface.

A little ways out from MCAS at the Yuma Proving Grounds. GM did a lot of Camaro testing out there as well. LT4 heat soak testing too.

Glad this truck has the 8 speed tranny and here's to hoping it acts better than the 6 speed did.

Yah, lots of complaints from the V6 guys about gear hunting with the 6 speed... It's perfect in the diesel though

I think the new LGX and 8 speed will fix those woes. If it wasn't for the gear hunting issues many complained about in the 6 speed, I'd say the truck overall seemed pretty solid.

RIPP also does a supercharger and you can find a few post from installed owners on the Colorado/Canyon forums.

Price doesn't look too bad either!

I wish these owners would post some youtube reviews... if they have I can't find them.

If I get a ZR2, I'm thinking Extended Cab V6. Dream would be a Crew Cab Duramax but it'll be too pricey, plus I'm not sure the short bed will be big enough for me.

8 speed solves that. I have a V6/6 Speed Z71 and hate it for that reason alone. 8speed is probably in my future very soon.

I own a truck because I need it for hunting and it saves the SS from crappy Saskatchewan roads. I'm not a truck guy, that said, this truck has me drooling.

Checked with my dealership today; my ZR2 has been built and is "bayed" (event code 4800). It should ship fairly soon.

Before you do consider the Pedal Commander a try (or something similar). I bought a Canyon V6 in February and was turned off between the pedal lag and the gear hunting. The PC fixed both and its great now.
