Very nice! You can definitely tell you're not from my neck of the woods because you wouldn't be putting on shiny new rims like that in these parts at this time of the year...

And best of all if you run into a "Smart" car with a parking spot you want you can park right over top of it. lol

Hey Clint, I see you're running 5k led foglights. Where did you get them from? Lumens?

The reason I'm asking is because I wanted to run the LMZ Platinum led kit from VLEDS.com, but on their website it states that the 5202 kit won't fit the 2014+ sierra. I'm trying to understand the reason why, and the only thing I think it could be is the backside of the led, the cooling fins, are interfering with bulb fitment inside the foglight housing. Please let me know if you or anyone you know are running this type of led kit. Thanks.

I've been thinking of adding a bit more lift. How do u like your body lift? If you had to do it again, would you stay with the 3" or go with the 1.5"?

I have the bds 6" & was thinking of adding a 3" body or 1.5" body and 2" level on top of my lift. I think I can add the spacer, since bds front is full strut replacement.

You truck is awesome man. Makes me happy to see a new body Sierra 1500 with a lift bigger then 6 inches and 35s like all the rest. How are you liking the 4.56s? Do you wish you would have gone with 4.88s? Also, how is the ride with the body lift and suspension lift? I'm thinking about going with McGaughys 7-9 with toyo 37s but stuck on going with the Maverick d260 10" wide with -13 offset or 12" wide with -44 offset. I just want to avoid doing a body lift right now and don't want to chop any of the bumper but don't care about the plastic valance. Do you still have your mavericks and if so are they for sale? And how was the 12" wide -44 offset fitment? Thanks in advance brother.
