I was pretty convinced I wanted the 4.5 inch going into this process. The guy at the shop who did the work even sort of tried to convince me that I’d eventually want the 6.5 inch. For one, I was a little worried that it may not fit in my garage with a 6.5 inch (it would have), and second, my local dealer sells a lot of the trucks with the 6.5 inch lifts and they always seemed so high, I just wanted something a little different. With that said, I have spent the last couple of weeks debating on calling the shop to have the 4.5 to 6.5 conversion kit installed. My 33s have quite a bit of tread left, though, so I may run it until I have them worn down to the point where I can justify bumping it up to the 6.5 inch and 35s.

Yeah yours should be very similar to mine with the offset that you have. I seem to getting around 14-15 mpg now with the lift, with lots of stop-and-go and hills where I live. I felt like it was a little better before the lift (maybe 1-2 mpg), but it may just be in my head. Either way, it was well worth it, in my opinion.
FlipZ71, The steps are the Havoc HS2 steps. They were out of stock for the 1500s but the 2500/3500 model works for our trucks, too. I prefer the look without them, as well, but my wife makes use of them. They work well for getting in the truck but it’s a bit of an adjustment getting out and using them, coming from the full piece steps from GM. I’ve only had them for 2 weeks, so time will tell.
