I have been looking at automatics.. via 4 5 or 6 speeds... going for performance and handling and yet looking for gas milage just to do it... any idea's greatly welcome... o and pics of the truck will be up soon

Welcome 'Easy'. I think you'll find the Colorado group very friendly and helpful, albeit rather quiet. We'll chime in whenever we can be of help, or you need an unsolicited opinion too!
