I'd do the ready lift, and if you're concerned about the diff, order some spacers for it. Literally just 4 pieces of plastic spacers and longer bolts. Ordered some for my 16 when I did a 3" lift and worked great!
This was caused by a cleaner that developed a film over time. Nothing to do with the actual soft plastic material the cleaner was used on. I'm talking about actual scratches into the plastic caused by very minor bumps and scrapes. My 16 got some over time as well, but they were earned. Dragging tool boxes across the door panel, etc. The 19 is simply closing a door against a bag, or getting out of the vehicle and having a bag bump the door panel. These should never show signs of wear, I've even got a spot where I had some bacon in a plastic shopping bag fall off the seat and hit the door panel and scratch it. This is the softest plastic I've ever seen in a vehicle, by far.
When working on the line for GM, I know when we got a scratch on a plastic piece, we took a butane torch to it. Sounds crazy, I know. But I watched it and did it several dozen times, and was always amazed at how it came out. You just do it for a second or two and then rub it with your finger. 9 times out of 10, the scratch wasn't visible any more. This worked great on light scratches. The deeper the scratch, the more noticeable it was. Even after doing it to so many vehicles, I'm still scared to do it on my own. Didn't mind at all when it wasn't mine and I had plenty of replacement parts to pop in if it turned out bad. Maybe I'll give it a try this weekend and post some results.
I saw one of these on a Ford Raptor the other day and had to stop and check it out. This thing is aggressive like no other! I was highly debating on getting one on my new truck, but the price is steep to say the least. Anyone have any experience with them? Worth the price? 1600 lb weight capacity on the lid is pretty nice. $2k price tag... not so much.
I did the same exact thing on my 16. I actually like the look of the wood on the RST so I decided to stick with it. Plus my interior is grey and brown leather, so the black carbon fiber would look pretty bad. Great looking on the all black though. Nice job!
I haven't noticed this myself. I went from a 16 to a 19, both z71. I do recall the 16 snapping right back, but haven't noticed anything about my 19. If anything it feels much smoother, but I've never had to assist it getting back to straight. I've only had it 3 weeks now, so I'm still getting used to it also. I'll pay attention this evening and see if it's like that on mine also.

As long as the tire is holding air and doesn't start to bulge, you'll probably be fine. If you start to get a slow leak, you may have a cracked rim. If the side wall starts to bulge, Time for a new tire. Id saw at worst, you might need an alignment, or tire balance. But as long as you're driving straight and no vibration, I'd say your good.
That was my concern with this kit. I bought the 2" leveling kit from them but haven't installed it yet. I might look for a 1, or 2" block for the rear. I don't mind the rake, I want the extra room for 33's. Great looking truck!
Anyone else notice how easily the plastics inside the truck scratch up? My back doors have scratches all over them from the door being shut against a backpack with clothes in it, and the padded portion of a car seat. My passenger side next to the glove box has scratches from... Who knows what. The interior plastics are very soft...
