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.
Finally got a decent day to clean up the truck a little bit. Here's my 4.5" Zone with 33x12.50x20 Toyo R/T and Hostile Sprockets. Pretty happy with how it turned out. I will be ordering 35x12.50x20 Toyo A/T2 Extremes and Fuel Blitz wheels as a summer setup.
Big thanks to Chris. I was able to get my Denali cluster installed into my 2015.5 Silverado this week. Super easy install (pgamboa’s video was very helpful, as well). Chris was very patient answering what seemed like a ton of questions back and forth as I had an issue initially because the eBay seller sent me a different cluster number from what was actually listed. My advice to those buying from eBay, make sure you leave a note to the seller so that they will actually send you the cluster that you think you’re buying!
Hey guys, if anyone is looking for a cluster, I have a brand new Denali cluster for a 2015.5 truck that I already have shipped to Chris. This cluster is metric, so it’s probably better suited for a Canadian or exported truck. I bought what was supposed to be the correct cluster off of eBay (verified by Chris), but the eBay seller sent a different cluster and I shipped it to Chris before I even realized it wasn’t the same as the ad. If someone is looking for a 2015.5 cluster (WiFi in your truck), I will sell you this one for my purchase price of $250, and you don’t have to mess with shipping it to Chris. Chris if you aren’t cool with this, I’ll be happy to delete. Just trying to save us shipping the cluster back.
To those of you that have done this, I have a question (or Chris, if you’re on). I found my specific cluster and spoke with Chris yesterday during business hours. He said to go ahead and place the order for the quote he gave me via the custom programming link on his site to get an order number. Once I fill out the form, I only get a “notify me” option and nothing to pay or receive an order number. Am I just looking in the wrong spot or does this process only apply during his weekend hours, as well? Appreciate any guidance! Edit: I got it taken care of...Chris updated the link on the site so I could place my order. Shipping the cluster to him today in hopes that it gets there this weekend.
Just received my new setup this weekend and I really like it. Shoutout to Custom Automotive for a great deal and a couple other members on here with very similar setups. 33x12.50x20 Toyo R/T with 20x9 Hostile Sprocket Asphalt with +10 offset. No trimming but I did have the carpet zip-tied back from a previous setup.
I am also running 285/55/22 terra grapplers on factory 22's. Surprisingly it only rubs at full lock in reverse right where Treys pic above is showing. I pulled the liner back with a zip tie and it helped slightly and probably would be fully fixed with some minor trimming of the carpet. Not bad enough for me to care, really. I have a 2.25 inch level, by the way. I'm hoping to clean it up real nice this week and will try to post some pics after.
