2014 GMC Sierra Lift and Tire build


Recommended Posts

Hey ,

 

New on here and am looking for information regarding a lift I am thinking of doing and potential engine, exhaust, intake and rim/tire packages.

 

I currently own a 2014 black All terrain 5.3 CCLB and love it. I am looking at a Camburg 2.5 factory kit, I am wondering if anyone has any experience with this kit and the tire sizes that are able to fit under it. I am not looking to go too much larger just 1-2 sizes.

 

I have also looked into exhaust/fuel/intake setups. I am looking for Mid tone, just a couple Db over stock. Any suggestions?

 

I have ordered the RX CC and will be installing it when it comes. This forum has a great write up on the necessaries, but I am looking for help on these items.

 

Stock tire size is 275/55/R20. Is there a rule of thumb when increasing tire size?

 

Also one other niche question... the Camburg guys mention that if my upper a-arm is aluminum the new a-arm will not fit. Does anyone know how a guy could tell other than taking a magnet to it. I am not near the truck a the moment to check but I do have the Vin number.

 

Thanks in advance.

You should be able to fit 33" no problem and possibly up to a 34" if its not too wide. Also depends on your rims.

 

I have a Jones turbine 3030xl with the resonator removed and the exhaust flapper help open and it sounds great. There are a few option for quieter mufflers, you could go with an 18" magnaflow as well.

 

Most people get away with running up 285/60r20 with approx 2-3" of lift. Any wider and you will most likely need wheel spacers/offset rims.

 

You can tell if your a arms are aluminum if they look like they are aluminum, they will be grey in color instead of black. You can also try sticking a magnet to them, if it sticks they're steel. Being that you have a crew cab long box I would guess they are steel. GM was weird about what trucks got aluminum and what trucks got steel. My crew cab short box has aluminum.

Wow, excellent post. Thank you for the feedback.

What does everyone suggest for a semi aggressive tire. Best of both worlds kind of tire. I hear people like the BFG All terrains, have people liked the new K02 version? Do they turn to hockey pucks in the winter time?

 

Thanks,
