    Hello all!
    I'm a long time Chevy owner who has finally seen the light. Just got myself an 05 access cab SR5 wich I already like and look forward to learning about. One thing I noticed was that the hub for the cooling fan is pink.:eek: Anyone know the reason behind this odd color choice?

    I have heard that some models come with different color- not sure why. Maybe different fan clutch in some models? Mine is pink too (2009 SR5).

    Added extra awesomeness to its original awesomeness.
    You chose to paint the fan hub pink for your first mod :facepalm:



    Kidding, seriously though, I have wondered the same.

    Welcome from Minnesota!

    Not 100% sure this is the case but my truck has the pink hub as well. When I purchased the truck I noticed it and asked the salesman. I was told it has to do with the truck requiring the pink antifreeze.

    One thing I have noticed about this forum compared to a Chevy forum is that in this one, most people discuss maintaining and building their trucks, detailing, and a few minor issues. In the chevy forums, most of the discussion is about transmission problems, serious engine issues, and various other things I hope to never deal with again. :cool:
