I am a 3 month lurker. I've read all 303 pages of this section (some pages more than 2x, even 3x, so I can understand what I am getting into lifting my 17 GMC Sierra 2wd). There are a lot of beautiful trucks here and I'm jealous of many.
However as much I love my truck and how she rides (I'm coming from an old Chevy Colorado), my truck is used for my small business. Having a 3"-4" lift would be ideal but in all seriousness I think I would be happy with LT 285/70/17 tire setup. I currently have the Rancho Quicklift (2" lift), Bilstein 5100's in the back with Airlift Airbags. Why the ranchos? Well i got those and helwig rear sway bar for $100. I couldnt pass it up.
I also have the stamp steel uca. While the ride is very good to me, I still have the urge to go higher, like most have felt. also kinda sucks that I live literally 10 minutes away from Mcnaughy suspension but I have no desire to lift that high.
I am just rambling. I just wanted to post my first post because it literally took 3 months to read all 303 pages. Thank you guys...beautiful trucks.
