Planning on leveling my 2018 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE with the 3” front 2” rear MOTOFAB leveling kit. Currently have stock wheels/tires on it which are 255/70R17. Thinking about jumping up to 18” wheels instead but wanted to know how much of a difference the 17” to 18” jump would make in appearance. 
 

I was able to find plenty of pictures with 18” wheels but are there any photos out there of leveled /lifted trucks with 17” rims?

the difference is negligible. the only noticeable difference that you would notice would be the tire size if you went with a plus size tire taller sidewall wider footprint

I don't suggest anything over a 2.5 inch level. Especially if you're sticking with stock control arms. It's rough on ball joints and the expensive electric rack. My truck has coilovers so I can't say exactly how much lift I have since it's controlled via preload ,But it's somewhere around 2 7/16. Just shy of 2.5 on 285/70/17.

I have factory 17" rims on my truck with a 2" front level.  I prefer more rubber than the skinny rubbers!
