4Wheel & OffRoad Mag test drives the BDS Colorado


Verne Simons from 4-Wheel & Off-Road Magazine got his hands on the keys to our 2015 Chevy Colorado Z71 while it was on display at 4 The Truck Customs in Henderson, NV and hit the the road/trail for an Ultimate Adventure inspired test-drive on his way to Arizona. He plans to get the truck on-road and off, hitting several trails, 2-tracks, and high-country terrain as he tests out the capability of this new breed midsize truck. Stay tuned for updates from 4WOR throughout the week and look for a future test drive story with the BDS Colorado online and in the pages of the magazine.

The BDS Colorado is unlike any currently around, after picking up the truck less than a month before SEMA, the BDS’s engineers tore into the truck to designing, engineering and testing a number of new suspension products. The standard 3 month production time was cut down to 3 weeks which gave the guys time to outfit it with a few accessories to get it show ready. The truck has a prototype 6” suspension lift with Fox 2.5 remote coilovers, the new 35” Nitto Terra G2 tires, a custom drilled set of 20×9 AE Alloy 012 wheels, a flush mounted 30” Rigid RDS light bar, prototype set of N-Fab wheel-to-wheel nerf steps and an Extang SolidFold tonneau cover. We gave the truck it’s initial break in with a 2000-mile road trip from Michigan to Vegas with a trail ride detour through Moab. We’re excited to see what Verne and the 4WOR crew thinks of the BDS Colorado. Stay tuned to find out…
