Anyone with a Trail Boss or AT4 want to sell the factory 2” rear lift blocks and Rancho mono tubes? Figure there are some guys on here that lifted and have these laying around. Preferably something with low mileage. Pm please. Thanks

I have Zone tapered 2” lift blocks with the U-Bolts I’m trying to get rid of from the lift in my 2019

Does your truck have the AUTO 4wd setting, and if so, can you still use it with the lift?  I've read elsewhere that you shouldn't with a lift.  I live where we get snow and the AUTO setting is very useful in my 2020 RST.

I’ve used 4WD Auto a few times with no issues whatsoever with a 6” BDS lift.

I've used Auto 4WD on my 2013 Silverado with a BDS lift and had no issues as well. As for this 2019 Silverado, I plan to use it as well. BDS pretty adamant about you being able to throw whatever you want at this suspension and it will take it. I'm sure Auto 4WD will be fine.

So I have a LT Trail Boss as well, with the same level kit (1.5" Rough Country), and was thinking about getting the same tire in the same exact size.... Great minds must think alike.

 

I do have 1.25" BORA spacers, as I was concerned about how close wider tires would be to the upper control arms.  How close are your inner side wall to the upper control arms?

 

Also, at full lock how close are they to rubbing?  I know you said you have no rub right now, which is good, so its got me wondering if I could fit a 35x12.50 (really 34.5"x12.50). So about a 1/4" taller and 1/2" wider than the 295/70s.  If you can could you take a pic at full lock... You think the extra height/width would fit.... Maybe with the spacers I have on???  Thanks for the pics.

Did you have to cut studs for the bora spacers? I had them on my Dmax and had to cut the tips off.

No, 1.25" will fit behind the space on the TB wheels.  So, you can either go up to 3/8" for hub centric, or 1.25"+ on the TB wheels.  Anything in between will need the studs cut to fit.

I will get some pics later, it’s Super Bowl day in KC! My tires are probably less than an inch from the UCA’s. Spacers would help.

Yup it is. BDS even says on their website the 4” for the TB/AT4 is similar to the 6” kits for the standard models.

      Hey all,
       
      I have a 2016 Silverado Midnight edition. The factory size of my tires are 265 65 R18. I recently put on 275 70 R18 and 2” rough country spacers. I’m getting a little rubbing on the insides of the wheel wells when I turn my wheel fully. The fronts barely clear. What’s the best way to fix? I could just avoid turning the wheel all the way but I don’t really want to go that route. Would a lift help? Or maybe cutting out some of the plastic? Or should I just deal with it until the tire wears down some because they are brand new?

      Hello, Looking to upgrade my 2017 Silverado 1500 LTZ 4WD. I am set on the 4" BDS Lift kit with the Fox shocks. Is there any benefit to the BDS Recoil System Traction bar upgrade?  Or any benefit to the Rear leaf springs upgrade instead of the 4" blocks?
       
      Secondly, I am deciding on whether I should get 33" tires or 35" - Any suggestions. Don't want 33's to look small, but don't want 35's to look to big or not fit. 
      Wanting the Nitto Ridge Grappler Tires and Fuel Rebel 8 D679 20x10 Rims.
       
      Any suggestions on the BDS upgrades or Tire sizes is greatly appreciated. First time lifting a truck. Thanks!

      In case anyone else out there is looking for a winch mount, but can't seem to find anything for the 20's yet.
      We went ahead and ordered the Rough Country EXO winch mount specified for the '11-'19 GM and it ended up mounting with very little modifications to the brackets.
      The frame spacing was nearly the same as the '18 that we have so we figured it was worth a shot.
      The hole which has to align with the tow hook mounting bolt had to be slotted to match up, and we used a 1/2" SS extension plate to bolt to the bottom of the bracket and into the bottom of the frame rail since the frame is not boxed all the way to the end.
      The Warn winch install was a breeze as to be expected.
      We are very pleased with how it turned out for the most part, but would have liked to be able to order the mount without all the light openings as we already have a Whelen work light package.
      (Don't mind the poor picture quality, I'll get some good photos uploaded after it's cleaned up)

      Good afternoon all,
       
      am pricing out a lift for my 19 4WD RST. Looks like BDS has them for just over $2000, and a dealer can give me 10% to order. So, around $1800. However, that’s 2+ hours of driving to go get it.
       
      LiftsKits4Less.com has the same kit but with free shipping. Anyone done business with them? Assuming I won’t get a surprise on anything. 
       
      anyone else can point me to a website to purchase from? Every dollar helps right now.

      I installed a 3" Rough Country life kit with the a-arms on my 2019 Silverado 4x4 a couple days after I bought it new.
       
      It's OK, but, and I should have known this, the truck still has the "snow plow" front rake.
       
      Was curious if I can simply add the 1" "ring" to the top of the coils to gain a more lever look.  Am thinking the a-arms will permit the additional lift.
       
      Has anyone tried this?
       
      Thanks.
