My truck was purchased as an ALC package, so I have never driven it without the lift. I have a FlexFuel engine and run e85 almost constantly. Running ethanol I get about 12-14mpg, depending on my driving style. I have seen as low as 10 with a lot of aggressive acceleration. When I have ran regular gasoline, which I do during the winter months, I get about 16-17 mpg. I had a Sierra 1500 as a loaner and I averaged 17-18 mpg in it. The biggest difference is highway driving anywhere that has a 70+ mph speed limit my truck will barely get above 18mpg where as a stock truck tends to get 20-21mpg. Overall, I don't notice the lower fuel economy that much and I am willing to trade off a couple of miles per gallon for the looks and ground clearance.

Thats not to much to sacrifice for an awesome looking truck.

The fox was offered as an option with Zone. Zone only offers spacers or full Coilovers , not just shocks with stock springs and i didn’t wanna shell out the money for full Coilovers and i heard great reviews about the bilsteins so it was a no brainer lol

I can't find that option on their website. Did you call them and order that way? All they have for options is a skid plate.5b16e349244c0_ScreenShot2018-06-05at2_21_44PM.thumb.png.93fe52d1d94931610b40dd2fc45b6901.png

The fox shocks are a Zone option, the bilsteins are not. I bought them separately

I'd have to buy those separate from the lift kit though. I could't find where they offer the Fox with the lift kit.

The Fox 2.0 Shocks (984-50-759) should work with the 4.5"CST lift kit?  These fox shocks are designated for Chevy/Sierra 1500's with 4-5" lift.  Now that CST makes their own shocks I can't get an answer from them other than them promoting their product.   The 4.5" CST lift kit comes with 3" blocks for the rear so I'm not sure if I'm looking at this right.
