I'm just curious where Hennessey steals the parts from.

The truck has the rear electronic locking diff and cruise control, both are a must. I don't care for the steel wheels and I don't care the the rear seats. There is a delete option for no rear seats but that would pretty much require placing a custom order. This will be a cash / paid in full purchase if I buy it. I'm more concerned about getting what I want and liking it. I will be test driving a Colorado this evening and will report back.

Have you considered a Tacoma? The TRD Offroad checks those options and even has a 6 speed manual option for roughly $35K. Not just recommending that because I own one, but I believe it would work for your situation. The seating position might not suit you though, it takes some getting used to.

I just listened to the new Autoblog podcast and they were talking about all the mid sized trucks after doing their comparison. Gladiator did well, as did the Ridgeline, they all generally seemed to like the Colorado better than the Ranger, and the Tacoma got placed last.
