The Colorado’s double-walled bed is as as the obelisk in 2001. Tie downs? We need no stinkin’ tie downs! of course, you do.) In any case, our cab provided a 5’1” bed.

If hauling is your thing, the Colorado#39;s bed extends a foot delivering deeper storage and overall payload than its Both beds offer cargo loading and tailgates are both lockable and removable#8211; but not at the time.
