Question about 2007 Isuzu i-290 Extended Cab
Can you use parts from a Chevrolet Colorado or GMC Canyon on an Isuzu I-290?If a part I'm looking for isn't listed for the 2008 I290, should I just order it as a 2008 Chevy Colorado and know that it will fit.
Example: Want to replace the bucket/bench seat in my I290 but companies don't list the seats and brackets as available for it, but do for the 2008 Colorado.
Most of the manufacturers give different trade names for their products in order to distinguish them from the crowd(most occasionally they may be the same parts).so there is no problem in interchanging the best suited parts.so you can use the thing you preferred .thank you

They come off the same assembly line, they are for all intents and purposes the same truck, just different names. read attached.
A: The parts sure better be interchangeable, seeing as how all of those Isuzu pickups roll off of the Canyon/Colorado assembly line. In truth, the Canyon/Colorado is actually based on a jointly-developed platform that was originally sold overseas as the Isuzu D-MAX – however, on the version that was later built here in the United States, General Motors swapped-in their own engines and restyled the body… but the platform itself is virtually identical. Due to something called the Chicken Tax, Isuzu sells the GM version here in the US (rather than their version that is built in Thailand). Basically, it is far too cost prohibitive for Isuzu to sell the D-MAX in the United States – so, to save themselves the tariff, they simply slapped an Isuzu emblem on the domestically-produced Canyon/Colorado instead.
