None of the shock companies we have mention the Xtreme Colorado trucks.
So at this time, we do not have any information on what partts might be compatible with those.
The height of a vehicle is generally determined by the springs. A strut or shock would not have any effect on height.
(unless it was specifically manufactured to change the height, with something such as a spring perch re-location).
The Bilsteins we show online for a stock Colorado would be the same dimensionally on the outside as a stock Colorado O.E. unit.
Your best bet would be to set the suspension / height where you want it, then use the appropriate tire rim size to get the maximum handling and control out of the setup. (rather than setting a rim/tire size, and building the suspension truck around that).
