Did you have to add a leaf to get the rear even with the front? Looking at getting this lift. Truck looks good. 

No, used the lift blocks that are included with the lift kit.  Ad-a-leafs are good, but also tend to stiffen up the ride too.

Add a leaf definitely stiffens up the rear. My lifted Chevy rides firm like a 3/4 ton. It also won't let it sag. I've loaded 25 -40 lb bags of salt pellets and it hardy went down.

Now that I have gotten my lift installed,  I am looking for honest opinions on tire size. I own a 2014 GMC Sierra crew cab with a ZONE 4.5" lift running on the stock 20" snowflake wheel w/ 275/60R20 K02's tires. Needing a set of tires and trying to decide on a tire size while keeping my stock wheel. I have narrowed my choices to one these 2: 275/65R20 or 285/65R20.

My truck is a daily driver that I lifted mainly for looks and will not see heavy off road use.

For reference here's my truck with the Zone 4.5" lift set around 5" with 275/65R20s. I'm looking to step up to either 285/65R20s or maybe even 35x12.50R20s -- but seems as though some people are able to fit the latter depending on the UCA type they have (??)

Do you have any issues with rubbing?

So I have a 2018 z71 and I want to put 37s on my stock 22s what’s the lowest lift I can get without going crazy high? I don’t mind a little trimming but don’t want to butcher the truck. Thank you!

Not sure it helps with your ask, but im running a 6.5" lift from Zone on my 2017 Z71 and the biggest i could go is 35's on my stock rims, with a 1/4" spacer.

Hey guys brand new to the forum so forgive my ignorance please. Didn’t want to make a new topic so I’ll post my questions here. I’ve got a 2017 GMC Sierra slt z71 package with the ranchero shocks. I do about 90% of my driving on road. I spent some time on this site and came to the conclusion I wanted to purchase a full set of fox 2.0 to level the truck. Right before I hit the checkout I started to think that maybe Due to the price of leveling just spend the money on a 3” lift. I’ve never lifted a truck before so all of this is new to me. What is the recommended kit that will allow me to have a leveled 3” lifted truck that will allow for 33-35” tires without rub or modifications to the fender well? I would like to achieve the same level of on road smoothness that a fox 2.0 would bring just a tad higher. I feel like I’m at the point of information overload. Any advice or information on the topic would be greatly appreciated.

I think it's a matter of preference..for me personally, I started at leveling at 2 1/2", 5 now 6 1/2"..ya I know the weird height difference but my truck is unusual. 

 

Sorry for bad pic..it's quite hot out here

I think I've posted this about 5 times now.
I went with a 3" Motofab level, a MotoFab UCA and 1-1/2" Zone rear spring lift, as well as a 1" MotoFab rear block lift.Also, I did a 1-1/2" Zone body lift and a 1" bilstein shock lift.
35's fit fine.
I'm thinking of going to a full 8" lift and 37s but, for now, I'm happy with what I have.
BTW, stock 18" rims though upgraded to black polished ones.
Why would I want to go bigger? this is my old C-10:

@SwisherSweets @MikeBMW thank you for the information. I am looking at starting off with the life I linked below. I’m having trouble finding any reviews on it. Not sure if anyone where has used a similar kit. My biggest worry is I spend the money on the kit and absolutely hate the ride quality.

That kit should be fine. However, I would, also, get a rear 1" or 2" block lift.
