Voiding the warranty never stopped me :LOL:

All kidding aside, I do wonder of the kit leaves any "trace" if it was removed. As long as nothing is drilled out or tapped, one could take it off and nobody would ever know it was there. Watching the video, I don't see that anything is permanently altered that would be a telltale.

True that’s why I will get a new filter cap and a new fill cap. That is after I check to see if there is enough meat to hold a tap in line for the bypass.
That way I can put the OEM back on.
I been ignoring the latest recall because I don’t want to have to remove my crank case vent to atmosphere mod. Plus I want to see if GM has screwed this regen update up by watching the forums and see if anyone has any issues.
Going to do some egr test mods over the summer.

Only thing that slows me down is I use the truck to pull my RV in the summer and I keep thinking an issue with a sensor or what have you and needing to go to a dealer for warranty while away from home would be a pain in the asssssssss...

The one thing I like about an older vehicle is no warranty.. Call me crazy but I never leave anything alone so a warranty is a pain in the ass.
But in this case considering the crazy price of these trucks, 47000.00 before tax, I can’t afford to loose it just yet.
In another year im sure I will have voided the warranty.....

I really like this truck. I had 4 Rangers before this. All 4x4 2.3, 3.0, and 2 4.0 liters. All manuals. Had no major issues with the Rangers. But this Colorado blows them away...

I had a '91 Ranger with the 4.0. It drank gas, but that engine was rock solid. It is not uncommon for those to go big miles. I had 225K on mine when I sold it. The engine ran like new, used no oil, never had a trans issue, and to be brutally honest, I did not think to change it's fluid - oops! LMAO. Speaking of oil, the valve cover on the 4.0 was leaking on the "pain in the ass side" where the A/C plumbing was in the way, so I left it. Had a an '02 Tunda, that truck was not too different in size from my Canyon Long Box. The Tundra drank gas too of course. I called that truck my "Lexus with a bed". It was smoooth...

Love my Canyon, all the old stuff seems crude in comparison. Of course the new truck costs a lot more. Be that as it may, it is amazing to drive around in a 4x4 long box truck that weighs 4,400 pounds and easily break 30 MPG on the highway. Saving at the pump is nice, but what I really like is the range. Being able to drive from Denver to Moab with dirt bikes in tow and still have plenty of fuel left over is awesome. All my other truck driving buddies have to stop and refuel, I just pull off to the side and wait, because I can do it later in town and not pay highway robbery prices :cool:

Yes the Rangers were very thirsty..
im in Canada and fuel prices here run around double that of the USA. Although gas and diesel are about the same price.
So the diesel has been absolutely amazing on fuel.. I keep reading how it’s not worth owning a diesel because they don’t get much better milage than a gas truck. Not sure where these people get there info.. I have a little Ford Transit at work with the 2.5 gas. It’s front wheel drive . This thing is tiny. My Colorado get way better fuel milage.
I wouldn't want to pull my RV with the 3.6 . I would be in the poor house.
