  1. I finally up graded my suspension lift on my truck to a 6" RCX lift in conjunction with a 1.25 RC body lift. so in total im running 7" of lift on my 2009 Chevy silverado 1500. i would like to run 35" tires with 18" wheels. i currently run 34" on 20" wheels and dont like how thin they are. im wondering about back spacing recommended to do this. im already planning on trimming some off the front and doing the "NorCal" fender mod. im new to worrying about back spacing so all knowledge and recommendations are welcomed. Thanks! pics of the lift are not up yet pics on my profile are outdated
  2. Hello! I this past Friday I picked up my new truck, coming from a 2014 Silverado in similar spec, I am quite impressed with it. I have been searching around the forms for days now and couldn't find a picture of a k2 running 28570R17 terra grapplers. If anyone runs a similar setup I would love to see pictures. ​Looking forward to a extremely mild build. Thanks! rm
  3. Hi there, this is a two part post, so please bare with me, First, I'm wondering what everyone recommends for lift/level on a 2013 Siverado. It is a Z71 4x4, and the previous owner had installed Monroe shocks and struts. There is 1.25 inch blocks on the rear leafs (leaves?), but I can't tell how much lift the front shocks gave the truck, and what it would look like when I take those out and put a new lift/level kit in. Second, I'm wondering whether this setup is considered a level, and if that's the case, how can I gain as much more ground clearance as possible without stressing the driveline and axles too much. I currently have 265/70/r18 tires on the truck and I know tires are what give the truck ground clearance so I guess bigger tires is what I'm really looking for?Any inout is very much appreciated!

    Just walked passed the window and thought it'd make a good picture
  5. Hey everyone, I'm not very familiar with trucks or mods, but I do want to lift my truck a little bit, or maybe at least even the front out with the back. I was hoping I could get some information on what the best way to go about doing this would be. As in what brand ect... Also how high to lift it, and if it cancels the warranty? Or should I have the dealership do it? Any Pictures would be great!! Thanks
  6. I am looking at a 2016 slt that I know my local dealer needs to get off the lot before the end of the year. It has a lift kit and some other custom work already done to it. They are listing it as $19,450 add on. I am trying to get an idea of what the real cost of the add ons are. Description: SCA true 6" suspension kit, SCA pocket style fender flares, 35" BF Goodrich all-terrain KO2 tires, black 5" oval wheel-to-wheel side steps, stainless steel dual performance exhaust, SCA engine management calibration, 20" Black Widow wheels, SCA brake caliper covers, Black Widow custom stitched headrests, red LED interior lighting, Black Widow badging, Black Widow "puddle" projector lighting.
  7. I just bought a 2014 Silverado 1500 Z71 Crew Cab and I'm loving it. I want to level out the front end, to fit a little larger tire and make it look right, but I don't want to go with a spacer kit. Looking to improve the suspension travel and overall ride both on & off road, so I was thinking of going with an adjustable coilover (ie: Fox, Fabtech, King) to get 2"-2.5" of lift, plus add new uniball upper control arms. Has anyone gone with route, without going up to 4" plus of lift? I don't want to add that much lift, but want to improve ride. The road live out is a single lane, private road and has a bunch of speed bumps. I want to be able to cruise right over them (at around 10-15 mph is all) without having to slow down, hence the set up I'm considering. I used to have an '11 F-150 FX4 with Bilstein 5100's, but I felt like it didn't improve the ride when put under even mild wheel travel situations. Hoping others can vouch for a better experience going with a coilover system.
  8. I am trying to figure out what is the largest tire i can put on my truck is, its a 2000 silverado 1500 , the truck will have. A rough country leveling kit with new keys and shocks as well as blocks. Currently i am running 2015 silverado wheels on it (18s) i am looking to get new tires in the future after the leveling kit along with 2" hub centric wheel spacers. I would love to run 33x18x12.5 but i am concerned about rubbing. I am not affraid to get in there and do some trimming as long as it is not a ton. The tires i will be getting are atturo trail blade mts, has anyone had any experiance with this or issues or reccomendations, thanks
  9. Looking for any information / advice on lift vs level for 2017 gmc sierra 1500. Spoke with RC and they said their kits were still in R&D for 2017 model gmc trucks.
  10. I bought these for my K2xx but never installed them. They are brand new, never used. This kit was $150 new (PA) $100shipped
  11. I have a 2014 silverado 1500 with a 2.5" rough country level and I'm tired of the terrible ride quality. Every bump is very rough and rattles the whole truck. Is there a best shock option I can buy to combine with this level and get better ride quality? I have looked at coil overs but I don't think I will be happy with amount of lift. Any advice or recommendations will be appreciated.
  12. Forum lurker turned forum FNG, so first question posted. It seems that some are able to do a 6" lift and run 35x12.5's without having to trim anything while others end up hacking the bumper and fender liner. I am going with a simple Zone 6" kit. The "Important Notes!" say "To reduce trimming on new body style HD's 20" wheel with 5 3/4" backspacing recommended." This has me confused since the wheel and tire sizing chart lists different wheel options with a max tire of 35x12.5. What gives - are they saying that what I really need is 5.75 back spacing but the only way I am getting it is with a 20" wheel? Seems odd any way I look at it. http://zoneoffroad.com/zone-offroad-products-5-6in-suspension-lift-kit-chevy-gmc-avalanche-pickup-suburban-yukon/c4 My plan is to run 35x12.5 Pro Comp AT Sport tires on 18x9 0 Pro Comp Series 32 wheels, which is about 5.25" back spacing. The "actual" tire size according to Pro Comp is 34.6" high, 11.8" section width, and 9.7" tread width. Do you think they are going to require me to trim the bumper and/or fender liner?
  13. my 2015 serria 1500 has P285/45R22 A/T tires i want to get some mud tires P285/55R22 to do this i need smaller rims or lift i wanted to add 4 inch lift front and back but looking at the truck if i add blocks to the springs i dont see how it would effect the drivetrain or warrenty for that matter. does anyone have any insight? i was thinking somin like this: http://www.motofablifts.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=CH-3F-2R&gclid=CNPjwLjF_s0CFQIRaQodraIODw
  14. Hey everyone, i'm new on here and made an account to ask about recomendations for a leveling kit for my truck. This is my first truck and I don't know anything about what kit to buy, what brand, whats a good price, what exact kit I need for what I want to do and so on. My truck is the elevation model so I think it's alittle higher than normal sierras' in the back. I know they all have a standard rake to them I measured mine and it seems to be about 3 inches. Basically all i want to do is raise the front 3 inches to match the back because I hate how it currently looks. I already have a guy installing it who knows what he is doing, SO what do I buy..? looking to spend up to 250 300 max on equipment and Im willing to go expensive because I love this truck. Thanks for the suggestions. ( image is the same as my truck for reference)

  19. Putting a 6 inch lift and 35's on my truck. I notice it says you need the hypertech programmer to calibrate the tires for larger size. A buddy of mine Recently put at 7.5 inch kit with 325/65/20 on his truck without the programmer and every time he takes a corner, His traction control goes off and doesn't let him accelerate because it senses he's slipping. Does the programmer fix this as well? and does anyone know what size tires you can go up to without needing the programmer?
  20. Anyone know of a reputable shop in the Fort Stewart/savannah GA area to have a lift installed. Found a couple shops off of rough country's site, but they act like they don't want the business. Any help would be great.
