    Looks very nice.

    Canyon and Colorado could use more towing capacity. Is a clean diesel being considered?

    I have been seriously considering buying a 2007 Canyon, but it needs better towing capacity. Not much, say up to 4,500 lbs. Also concerned about gas mileage. A clean diesel could help in both areas.

    I expect comments saying I should consider a larger truck if I want to tow more. However, I am like many people who want a truck for occasional towing of a entry level boat and don't want a big truck for everyday use.

    Re: Colorado X-Terreme

    Rex,
    I like this quite abit. Though can we see it in say a royal blue metallic, please? How about a black one too & an SS model too? If its not asking too much.
    This chop is very well done. Great job!

    How much longer til voting will be taking place? One or 2 more weeks?

    IF It's A Chevrolet & RWD, Don't ride in it!!!

    ALL Chevy's NEED to be FWD/F-AWD!!!

    If it's a Toyota/Lexus/Scion, Don't ride in/drive it!!

    SS would be good, but the back looks way to high and bulky.
    Ive never even used photoshop, so i'm sure its hard, but just an idea.

    Don't care too much for the vehicle, but sure is a nice piece of work.

    Re: Colorado X-Terreme

    Amazing chop, Rex. It looks weird, though. Good idea! I'd just make the back a little lower, maybe continue it flat from where the roof bubbles-up.

    And one other idea for you, Rex. Can you do me a favor and combine an Avalanche and a Colorado? I want to see this be done so badly, but I'm...let's just say inept...at PhotoShop. Thanks!

    its kind of ugly, maybe if the rear door window was the same size as the others.

    Re: Colorado X-Terreme

    I like the idea of it, an Xterra based on the Colorado.

    The rear window is bigger on purpose, to make it more Nissan like. If I made it a straight SUV, it would defeat the purpose of the contest.

    Nice Work!
    I dont like the mix, I think that the Colorado alone looks a lot better, but without any doubt, its a great chop work!

    this one fits together a lot nicer than the 350z06, but the wheels are a bit blurry and the shadow of the mirror would make it hard for the passenger to get in.
