I was debating over the rough country 2" kit or the readylift 2.25" leveling kits. I ended up choosing the readylift just for the fact that it is aircraft aluminum and not polyurethane type stuff like the RC is. The install was fairly easy and the truck looks awesome. Ride is the exact same as factory. The truck sits almost perfectly level, with only .25" of rake. Pics below are before and after. I also took off the factory running boards and the front vailance.

Looks Good. I have the same truck & did the ReadyLift as well, but added the rear blocks too.

Congrats!

Looks good man, It never ceases to amaze me what a difference the leveling kit and removing the valance makes on these trucks

Thanks guys! I am extremely happy with the outcome. Ill be happy when I can get these bridgestone 265's to wear down so I can throw on some larger BFG's or nittos haha. I've had the truck for 3 days and couldn't be happier with it. GM trucks are by far the best built trucks on the road!

Very nice, been debating this for a while now.  Looks like I'm going to go this route with rear blocks and same size Duratracs.  Great looking truck!

Thanks Man.  They are great tires and REALLY make a difference in how the truck looks.  
Although you can hear them a bit the tires aren't TOO noisy at hwy speed, I don't even notice them anymore.  Mud & Sand traction is GREAT!  Haven't had them in the snow yet, but looking forward to it this winter.
