  1. There is thread on this forum for suspension lifts, but not body lifts. Also noticing a lot of people posting up requesting for pictures, info, etc. So lets get a thread started for body lifts. Remember to post the brand and size also!!! Preferably pictures of the sides, front, and rear, GO!!!
  2. I'm new to the forum. I've been pouring over quite a few of the level lift threads and I've decided on the rough country 2.5 level lift for my 2014 Gmc Sierra 4x4 crew cab. I traded the factory 18s for a set of stock 20s off the All terrain editions. After reading a bunch, I've come to the conclusion I'm getting either a set of 275/65r20 tires or a set 305/55r20. I've seen a lot of good pics of the 305s bit not a whole ton of pictures of the 275s. I like the fact the 275s seem to fill the wheel wells better since they are taller, but I'm worried they won't look as good since they are a bit thinner tire. Anybody on here ran both sizes or seen both in person or have friends running these setups? It's a big purchase and I don't want to regret it afterwards. Opinions and pictures would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
  3. I'm looking at a 2015 1500 with a 4.3, 3.42 gears. I would add a leveling kit with 33x12.5s. What should I be expecting for gas mileage? Would a 5.3 get better MPG with the lift/tires? What is your current tire/lift/engine/mpg? I tried the search feature but couldn't find a ton of what I was looking for.
  4. I am in the need of new tires and currently i have the stock 17 inch rims and stock tires. I am going back and forth whether i should level it or lift it and get 33's if level or 35's if lifted, or just get 275/65 18 with new wheels. The cost is just quite high and i don't know if it is really worth it to level or lift it. Quotes Leveling 2.5 in with 33/12.5/20 Toyo RT is like $3800 5 inch lift with 35/12.5/20 Toyo RT is $5000 or just get Toyo AT and 18 inch wheels is like $2100 I just don't know if can/should justify either the level or the lift. And would love to hear anyone's thoughts on the matter. Thanks
  5. Hey guys, I have a 2006 Suburban LT with a 6" lift installed and 295/70R17 tires. We bought several years ago with the lift installed. It's a nice truck but it is a chore to drive. It doesn't handle very well and we have to take turns on the slow side since it leans alot. The factory sway bars are connected.. When there are bumps in the road it seems like the tires bounce make us the drivers have to make corrections to keep it on the road. Not sure what to call it but when the road has been traveled a great deal and the asphalt has tire ruts, but it seems like the road steers the truck and there is an awful lot of continual steering correction to keep it going straight. I am comparing the drivability to our cars. I know the lift isn't a great lift. Who ever lifted it did it for cosmetics not for off roading. I recently had new tires installed with an alignment done with some repair work so I know everything is in order. The truck drives great cruzing down the highway or town driving but if there are hard bumps or asphalt ruts the truck isn't enjoyable to drive. Recently I was thinking about upgrading the front and rear sway bars to improve driving while turning to reduce the truck leaning. Would better shocks help keep the tires on the road when driving over hard bumps. For example railroad tracks we better slow down compared to the car. Some of the roads are in need of repair out where we live and hitting pot holes better have both hands on the steering wheel. In the car no problem. I sure would like to improve the road handling in the truck. Any suggestions would be nice
  6. I just bought a 2015 Sierra Denali and I would really like to lift the front end to level the truck out. I’d rather not drop the rear end. I have scoured the forums and the Internet, looking for a leveling kit that works with the Magnetic Ride Control. Has anyone successfully installed a leveling kit that works with the magnetic ride control? I assume the kit would have to include some sort of relocation brackets for the sensors? I saw someone said the suspension maxx kit works with the magnetic suspension, but I did not find any information to back that statement up. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks!!
  7. Just bought a 2014 sierra 4x4 and ordered the 2" kit to level it out. On rough country's website they say that this kit only allows for up to a 32" tire, and I am looking to put 33s. I am new to GM, what's the biggest tires that I can fit?
  8. Good Morning Gents Bought myself a Bday present last week. 2017 Silverado Crew Cab Z71 Dealer had done a bunch of things to it listed below and kept dropping the price after they couldn't move it for several months. Finally had to pull the trigger. Rough Country 7 inch lift and step bars Paint Matched Fender flares Moto Metal 20's Nitto Terra Grappler M/Ts 35/12.5 Dealer removed the factory cloth interior installed custom road wire leather interior Back to my Family Chevrolet Roots from my 2015 Ram.
  9. I want to lift my 2017 silverado 1500, any thoughts on 7.5" lift from rough country??? Reviews please thanks guys!!!
  10. Hey all, SO let me start by mentioning I changed out my stock lower ball joints to Moog lower ball joints on November 5th, 2016. This being said, I removed the stock LBJ after 40k miles (20k on level w/ stock tires, 20k on 6" RCX knuckle and spacer lift w/ 35x12.5 tires and 20x9 rims @ 0 offset), and it looks like I am needing to replace them AGAIN! Barely even 10k miles later I am seeing the same irregular wear pattern as when I had the stock ball joints. I greased them when new and at oil change (every 5k mark). I got the vehicle aligned the following day after I installed the new LBJ btw, and I also changed the UCA to cognito arms at the same time. What I am curious of is if the issue is lying in the stock rancho shocks and the spacer lift maybe being too rough on the LBJ on the truck, this being said, does anyone else with more knowledge/experience in this area have any advice or other possible causes? I have searched the internet and haven't found anything really definitive so Im at a loss. I am at 50k right now and will have the truck at the shop within the week to get the alignment checked as well as other routine maintenance performed. I am just at a total loss and don't want to run through these new tires nearly as fast as I went through my old ones (barely even 25k miles before the edges were at 10% tread remaining at best) The rear tires are wearing beautifully but the fronts are wearing from the outside, in. The outer scalloped edges are all even and smoothed out, whereas the interior side of the tire still has extremely defined edges that look practically brand new I'll get photos and attach for reference. Thanks in advance for any help.
  11. As the title states, I'm starting to research some lift kit options for an old 2003 Bow-Tie. It's an extended cab stock z71 off road package with brand new BFG 265/75r16 tires. What I'm attempting to get out of this forum is discussion from owners of similar models that have gone this route and can give me some personal experiences. There are many options for lifts, but my preference is to lift no more than 4" and most ideally, just a 2" or 3" lift. I don't really want a leveling kit, but am open to suggestions from all areas. If I were to rank my vehicle knowledge, I would place myself as a 4/10. Possible lift options Zone 2" lift Rough Country Leveling Kit I'd also like an explanation on torsion keys vs suspension lifts (I don't plan on doing a suspension lift) so that I have a better understanding of what to expect to be careful with. I know torsion keys are going to extend the depth of the suspension and cause the shocks to not be able to travel as far, but I'd accept a rougher ride as a sacrifice for running bigger tires and having higher clearance. Here are some pictures of the truck I've bought (no I didn't pay the sticker price). Thanks guys

  13. Hey guys, Just wanted to see what y'all thought about this price I've been quoted for a 6.5" Zone Lift for my 2015 Silverado 1500, 20x10 -12 offset Maverick Wheels and 35x12.5 Cooper S/T Maxx Tires. Total cost for all of it including mounting / balancing tires, shipping costs, and lug nuts all for $3700 even. Brand NEW! Let me know what yall think. Should I pull the trigger?
  14. Hey guys im new to this forum and i signed up because i needed help decided how high i should lift my 2017 silverado black out edition. The highest i think id go is 6 inches but rough country only goes up to 7.5 and the next highest is 5 which i might do. fabtech has 6 inch kits but i really dont know how good they are compared to rough country. Anyway all feedback is appreciated let me know your opinions and show me pics of stock vs 6 and 5 if you have it thank you all for reading
  15. Gents I'm a newbie, I currently have a 2015 6.2L 1/2 ton Silverado Double Cab that I'd like to lift but am having a hard time deciding between: BDS / Pro-Comp / Zone / Rough Country I'm choosing to go with a 6" lift and have been told Rough Country is pretty much bottom of the barrel. I really like their price and am curious if anyone has ever had any issues. I've always been known to go with the best of the best and I understand BDS is pretty much the best. What's your opinions? I would appreciate any helpful knowledge from you guys. Thanks!
  16. Hi all, Still relatively new to the site, so please excuse me if this is a duplicate post of sorts. I am looking to eventually do a lift/level on my 2017 ATX. I would love to keep it as stock as possible... So.. my question is, can I swap stock suspension for stock suspension... I have a 1500, can I take 2500 or 3500 suspension to bump it up noticeably with out modifying severely? Open to all and any comments! Thanks!
  17. I’ll try to keep this short and sweet. I have a 2014 Sierra 1500 4x4 (Crew Cab, SLT, Z71, blah, blah, blah) with 3:42 gears. I’m running stock rubber. 275/55 R 20. I believe these are 31.9 inch tall tires. My plan is to lift my truck and tune it as soon as I hit 36,000 miles. I want to run 35’s after I get my 6 inch lift installed. I found this calculator. http://www.4lo.com/calc/geartire.php I’ve been pretty obsessed with it and the numbers it’s giving me since I found it. If I want to run a 35 inch tire, my current tire size is 31.9, and I have 3.42 gears front and rear, to keep the same gear ratios, I’d need a 3.75:1 axle ratio. Which is pretty close to 3.73. Catch my drift? I know I’ll never get the acceleration and fuel economy back after taller and heavier tires, but shouldn’t my truck be pretty close in drivability and at least in the same ball park with stock fuel economy and acceleration if I were to install some 3.73 gears at the same time as I installed the tires? Someone out there has to have done this same swap with this setup. Just curious about the results.
  18. I finally up graded my suspension lift on my truck to a 6" RCX lift in conjunction with a 1.25 RC body lift. so in total im running 7" of lift on my 2009 Chevy silverado 1500. i would like to run 35" tires with 18" wheels. i currently run 34" on 20" wheels and dont like how thin they are. im wondering about back spacing recommended to do this. im already planning on trimming some off the front and doing the "NorCal" fender mod. im new to worrying about back spacing so all knowledge and recommendations are welcomed. Thanks! pics of the lift are not up yet pics on my profile are outdated
  19. Hello! I this past Friday I picked up my new truck, coming from a 2014 Silverado in similar spec, I am quite impressed with it. I have been searching around the forms for days now and couldn't find a picture of a k2 running 28570R17 terra grapplers. If anyone runs a similar setup I would love to see pictures. ​Looking forward to a extremely mild build. Thanks! rm
  20. Hi there, this is a two part post, so please bare with me, First, I'm wondering what everyone recommends for lift/level on a 2013 Siverado. It is a Z71 4x4, and the previous owner had installed Monroe shocks and struts. There is 1.25 inch blocks on the rear leafs (leaves?), but I can't tell how much lift the front shocks gave the truck, and what it would look like when I take those out and put a new lift/level kit in. Second, I'm wondering whether this setup is considered a level, and if that's the case, how can I gain as much more ground clearance as possible without stressing the driveline and axles too much. I currently have 265/70/r18 tires on the truck and I know tires are what give the truck ground clearance so I guess bigger tires is what I'm really looking for?Any inout is very much appreciated!
  21. Yeah

    From the album The Replacement

    Just walked passed the window and thought it'd make a good picture
  22. Hey everyone, I'm not very familiar with trucks or mods, but I do want to lift my truck a little bit, or maybe at least even the front out with the back. I was hoping I could get some information on what the best way to go about doing this would be. As in what brand ect... Also how high to lift it, and if it cancels the warranty? Or should I have the dealership do it? Any Pictures would be great!! Thanks
  23. I'm looking too lift my 2016 4x4 3.5 inches. Will a 33x12.5r18 fit without rub? May trim liner back but no metal as the truck is brand new. If not what is the largest alternative size?
