There is a slight rub on the plastic guard under the front bumper ONLY when i back out of my angled drive with wheels turned. I think i am leaving it alone as it will let me know if over time i get any closer to the METAL part of the bumper. 

Thx!

Right on man. I was thinking it would rub on the inner back. Have you done a norcal? Could you fit a wider rim or larger tire if so?

Have not done a norcal, but i will look into that if something starts to droop. I would bet u could go slightly large if u did though.

leveled now but still seems like I’m in a low rider

If you have the Magnaride, I think Fabtech makes a 4" lift that is compatible.

I have a 2018 silverado 2wd.  I want to lift it in the very near future purely for looks as my truck will not be going off road.  I am debating on what to do since i have limited options being a 2wd.  I know that zone is always recommended but i was wondering how it compares to mcgaughys lift?  Do they both widen your stance?  I want to run 35's so ill have to lift 6+ inches from my understanding.  My biggest concern is the wheel width / offset.  I personally do not want my wheels sticking way outside of the fenders.  I do like a slightly aggressive stance but i want to avoid going overly wide.  I was looking at a few 22" Hostile wheels and trying to decide on 10" and 12" wide wheels.  Any thoughts and opinions are greatly appreciated!

We should have more pics of lifted 2wd.

I have a 2017 GMC Sierra, 2WD.  It is currently at Fearless Gear here in Fresno getting rear differential changed to 4.56 and getting universal joint replaced. I could go 35's but I plan to stay at 33. I will post pics when truck gets back, hopefully Friday. I have appointment with Linex at 10 am. 

 

I lifted mine purely based off of looks, never offroad - tbh, I just got tired of the 2500's, etc, sitting taller than me on the road - thats it.

 

In the front, I went with a MaxTrac 5" knuckle lift, Bilstein B8 6100 set at 0" (I didnt want to to go higher than 5), Cognito UPC (not needed but I did it anyway because of the better ball joint). I also had to replace lower control arm because replacing that lower ball joint was a pain and I ending up buying 2 LCA at O'Reilly's.

 

As far as the back, I put 3" rear block..I also have Airlift air bags and I had to buy 4" spacer as well. Also have Hellwig rear sway stabilizer. 

 

The knuckle lift will space out your tires out some, so to some, it will look out of place in comparison to the rears. You can add spacers to rear but i chose not to.

 

You can go mcGaughy's route..I live in Fresno so you will see alot of their trucks around here..I really wanted their front crossmember but that's about it.  I will post pics most likely this Friday. Good luck

Beautiful truck!  I am considering this lift as well!  How do you like it?  Any negatives worth mentioning?  I am looking at this lift mainly due to the front track width not changing.

Got invited out to the McGaughys compound this weekend. Such a rad time with everyone. Got to tour the shop and they shot a ton of promotional content. Here’s just a little teaser. Also I want to say this, I was extremely happy with my McGaughys system already but now meeting the family behind the company and seeing the state of the art facility I am blown away. Customer satisfaction as far as production, quality control and ease of use is their driving force. I absolutely cannot say enough about this company and I will recommend them 10 out of 10 times to anyone I talk to.

No ******!? You’re out there in Fresno huh? It was a cool spot to shoot. We were out there for about three hours shooting the three trucks.

Yes sir! The direction towards the DMV, not the Tower Disctrict...and btw beautiful trucks!

 

You'd  figure living in Fresno, I would get Mcgaughy system like everybody else, but I can't seeing myself throwing 35's on a 1/2 ton.

 

I'm happy with the 5" lift and 33's

To each their own, we all have different types and styles. Great looking truck also! I already knew their equipment was top-of-the-line but now interacting with the actual people behind the company I am thoroughly impressed all around.

If I didnt have weight in the back of truck when its fully loaded, I am do down for McGaughy's. When I ever do upgrade to a 2500, actually if it's even possible - a fully customizable flatbed is my dream then I'll look to it.

Currently on my Sierra, even upgraded to a 4.56 gear ratio with locking diff..I'm still on the fence with 35's.
