Lift kit advice?


Recommended Posts

I’m looking for advice on a 4” lift kit for my 17 Silvy, planning on a 17” wheel and 33” tire.  I don’t want the tires sticking out too far as I am not adding flares, the less they stick out, the better.  What offset do you recommend?

 

Fabtech, CTS, BDS, RC?

33’s don’t require a lift. I would just do a level

  I do not want to stress  out components with spacers,  not a fan of those short cuts.I want a tail up stance, so I can get a leaf added to the rear.

I had my 2 inch level on for 60k miles with no problems. I was mostly on the pavement, but I did do light “off-roading” when I drove in the pastures. I would be putting spacers on my 2018, but I’m saving for a 6 inch lift. Someone correct me if I’m wrong, but I think 33s are close if not factory size. You may not need anything to fit them unless you are going for looks.

Great first post Mike. 

You are just jealous your wife won't let you lift your truck. Either that or you can't afford it.

Head over to GM full-size. Lot of guys like you over there.

Im not sure if 33”s will fit without rubbing?  Im staying with 17” wheels, my tires are 265 70 17 which measure 31.6”.   My friend just bought a 2020 custom with 265 60 20 on it, they measure 33” tall.

 

Did they have a 20” wheel option on these trucks?  Maybe a 33” will fit.

A 4” lift kit on my 1500 will put me at the same height as a 2500HD.  Furl efficient?  I owned a 17 Ram hemi, that truck was a pig in town.  My Silvy blows it away in mpg.

Hey there Sammy boy, how about you posting a pic of your little truck and we can all post judgement as to your anatomy or lack of, oh come on, it’ll be fun! [emoji12]

So, I had both. I guess that means I’m confused.

Difference with you is that you’re respectful of everyone’s truck, being lifted or stock, stock engine or modified. There seems to be a lack of education coming from one that feels the need to enter a truck forum and show his/her intelligence or lack of.
