What's Up? New Guy From OHIO

Recommended Posts

Defnitely not new to forums. We purchased our Torrent GXP 3 years ago when gas prices forced us out of our Avalanche. Although we miss it we still love our GXP. I hope to get some knowledge on modding this beast and where to buy parts. I play with my minitrucks and sure that the wife would like some custom bits here and there for the GXP. Thanks for checking out the post. Look forward to chattin.

Welcome to FP!

There's a decent amount of potential with that LY7 under the hood.

colorado is long gone...... and added more chrome before I traded it...I am never truly finished with a vehicle. I believe in constant evolution

If you've got the cash, get OEM size Brembo blank rotors. They're known to last 80K with resurfacing.
