So i put my RC 2" level kit and Toyo 295/55/20's on this weekend. Install was simple, just like on my 2011. It definitely helps to have an extra set of hands when wedging that spacer in there. 295/

Thanks. Here is one more from yesterday. Considering we're getting 8-10 inches of rain the next two days, I won't be taking any better pics soon.  

Mine is finally done! After months of research I went with the RC 2.5" level kit front only, stock rear block. 20"x9" Fuel Nutz w/ +1 offset, 33x12.50x20 Toyo M/T tires. No rubbing, No trimming, yet a

So i put my RC 2" level kit and Toyo 295/55/20's on this weekend. Install was simple, just like on my 2011. It definitely helps to have an extra set of hands when wedging that spacer in there. 295/55/20 are right at 33" and approx 12.3" wide. I have ZERO clearance issues. As a matter of fact you can EASILY run 305/55/20's all day long with no rubbing issues...and this was on my 2wd SLT. Kinda wish I got the 305's instead but oh well. Truck looks awesome and all it needs is an alignment. So far it drives better than my leveled 2011. I did have Nitto Trail Graps on that one and went with Toyo Open County MT this time.

Anyone done just a RC level on the front and kept the stock tires? Any pics? Should be doing mine this week, not messing with the rear. Wondering how it will look. Plan on testing it out for a few days and see if I like it before I get it aligned.

Any of you leveled guys notice a different in handling. Granted I still need to take my truck in to get the alignment done, but when driving, i did the ol "Nascar keep the wheels warm" swerve thing. It felt like the truck rolled very heavily side to side. Not tight at all. I'm hoping that's because it needs to get aligned.

Anytime you change the geometry of a truck (level kit, life, etc) you are going to change the ride, handling .... how much depends on how high you went. And the change is always generally for the worse.

Of course that goes without saying. I had my 2011 leveled and didn't notice this much of roll side to side. It's probably because it needs an alignment.

7473330315x65.jpg How will a leveling kit do with these factory 22" GM wheels with 285/45/R22's? I want a more aggressive off road tire that has more sidewall, but not sure what the best size would be for the 2" level lift. Any advice is appreciated!post-124428-0-50815600-1380244080_thumb.jpg
