Yup! I did the same. Traded in my 9" lifted 1500 for a 2015 Z/28- I made sure there were already lifted trucks on their property as well before they gave me the runaround about how they dont want a lifted truck lol!
Im in a different boat here. I bought the 6.0 because all this truck will ever do is maybe tow one or two trailers-maybe ever. For example if we move across country and got to haul all over our stuff etc. The bed is primarily used most. I had a 2014 1500 prior but to me at least, it just felt too small and drove like a car. Call me crazy but there was just something about 1500s I didnt like. Very glad to be in the 2500 body style. The reliability of the 6.0 was a big factor for me even though my truck is about to have 37s on it soon so, we'll see ya mpgs. lol.
after toying with many different setups in my mind, between leveling and stock wheels, and or a lift with stockers. I decided to just do it right (in my mind at least lol) and lift and get wheels and tires that fit the lift. sooo, 8" lift and 37's are on their way!
The final step was to add on the 2016-2018 1500 LED tailights- no idea why we never received an upgrade (both for headlights and tails) but imo these really "refresh" the back end quite a bit. One day I may look to also update to the 2016-2018 SLT/Denali 1500 headlights but thats further down the road.
Next step was also to correct what I felt were, at the very least, a terrible problem- the factory tires. Went ahead and put on 275/65/20 Cooper STT Pro. No level, cranking of the keys, trimming, etc, needed. I did remove the lower valence but it was after driving around with the tires for a bit- if youre going down this road with these sizes, you do NOT need to remove or trim- I did it just as a personal preference.
