2015 LML Denali with 10 inch lift and 38" tires

OK, not yet but in a couple of weeks. This is my first diesel truck. I had an old Dodge with a 6 inch lift and 35" tires previously but this time I want to go bigger. Got a new GMC from a good friend who owns the dealership so I got the "preacher and brother-in-law" discount. He jokes a lot and sent me a text saying "I'm glad we finally unloaded that truck with all the trouble we've had with it." I responded "I'm glad I finally got to use that last stolen check."

Anyway, I am getting the Bulletproof 10 inch lift and 38" tires on 20 inch wheels. I must be an old fart (at age 40) because I'm not a fan of the bigger wheels. I still like the look of the trucks I grew up seeing with 15" wheels and huge boggers. The stock gears are 3.73 and I'm swapping to 4.88.

I am already thinking about going up to 40" tires when these wear out. But I already paid for the 38s so I'll start there. I'll put up more photos when it's finished in a couple of weeks.

It's taking almost a full month to get the lift mailed in to the guy doing it. Kinda frustrating. He already has the wheels, tires, gears, AMP power steps, etc but just waiting on the lift. I am dropping it off Friday and he estimates 10 days to get everything done. I am out of town the next week so it will be the first week of October before I get it. I'll get lots of photos for you guys since we don't see many 38s on 20s.
