Here are a couple of pictures of my 2011 sierra that has been my work in progress for the past year.

Nice truck! I noticed your wheels come -12mm offset. Do you get any rub?

 

I have some Pro COmp with -6mm offset and with a 2" level i cannot fit 285/70/17 without major cutting. Do you think the 1.25" BL will fix that or should i go with a larger suspension lift (I assume i will still need to cut some, but with the current setup i would have had to cut metal)? I want my 285's back....

 

What lift did you end up putting on first?

Right now im only running 265 70 17s. at full crank i still have some room. if i do rub, i dont believe it will be much. I think the 1.25" BL would help, for sure. I had pro comps on my last sierra with approximately 3" of lift in the front, it was an 08. My 285s on that set up rubbed very little.

 

my first lift i had installed on the truck was RC 2" leveling kit. then i added the 1.25" lift. at 3.25" of lift, it looked good but i wanted more. not listening to anyone on here about the RCX 3.5" lift i ordered it right up. i have been very happy with it.

 

now, if i had to do this all over again for cheapest route, i would go with either the 1.25" BL or zone 1.5 with a 2.5" leveling kit. OR stick with the 2" leveling kit you have and order up the 3" BL.

 

If you want a decent REAL suspension lift and money isnt tight, i keep eye balling Zone 4.5" lift for just under 1300.

 

Thanks for commenting keep em coming

 

one way you could test if 1.25" more lift will help is to measure fender measurements, and jack up another 1.25" and then crank the wheel. you should be able to tell then.

thanks for the comments. this is my daily driver to and from work. im self employed and do carpentry. i have had numerous people at the lumber yard tell me to buy a full ladder rack. with the short box i needed the rack. thanks for the comment even though it wasnt all for it.

 

all i know is, my truck looks much better than the day i picked it up from the dealer :)

so i finally got some Cooper ATP 285 70 17's installed ony my truck. looks much better than the 265's. they only rub on the front mud flap where its screwed to the truck. im almost feeling like i would like to swap out the RC 1.25" BL for Zones 3" BL...

 

as stated before lifting is addicting

i live on a dirt road, and travel a long ways to pavement. so removing the mud flaps is a no no for me. the rubbing doesnt bother me at all. my 08 rubbed so bad it wore through the mud flap and then ripped it off the truck. this is very minor in comparison.

 

I just have the itch to go up a little bit more. i will post pictures with the 285s soon
