The new generation of midsize and mini-truck are changing the face of show trucks. GM's new midsize trucks, the Colorado and the Canyon, have some very cool body lines that look sweet when laid out. Starting at a little more than $15,000, the Colorado and Canyon are sure to become a force in their own right. Shops all over are seeing more of these midsize trucks for modification.

Many truck builders are being asked to give the Colorado the ability to lay frame. The Colorado is one of those trucks that can't tackle this task without relocating the transmission crossmember. Thanks to John at Clean Cut Creations, getting your Colorado to scrape frame can be accomplished with the addition of his bolt-in tranny crossmember on any frame-laying suspension setup. Even if you just want to static-drop your Canyon, the additional clearance is good. The clearance gained by relocating the crossmember will give back some driveability by allowing the truck to pass over obstructions like speed bumps with added assurance. We asked Clean Cut Creations crew to show us what's so special about their Colorado/Canyon tranny crossmember. What they showed us was pretty cool-the mod is simple, clean, and easy for a mid-level tech to install.
