Finally installed, truck needs washed but I snapped some pics anyway. Still has a slight rake in the rear, which according to the BDS direction is the way the lift is supposed to be installed. I might level it out a little bit later, just depending on how the CV angles look just adjusting the torsion bars. But anyway, here she is:







Gonna get my AMP power steps installed Friday. Cant wait, its hard to believe how big the truck is without seeing it in person. The pics just dont do it justice.

pictures never do lol. My rig looks low as crap compared to how it actually sits.

Looks extremely good though man! Any thoughts on taking off the z71 stickers?

Thanks bro, I thought about taking em off, but those stickers cost me like $300. haha I bought the truck brand new and it had the Z71 package which I really didnt need since I was going to be lifting it anyway.

Looks awesome. I'm wanting to do the same lift on mine(have to pick it up from the dealer first since i bought it when i was out of town and am still out of town). How is the ride? Do you think there would be enough room for 37s? Again awesome truck.

Honestly, to me the ride is better than stock. Stock my truck had a real stiff and nervous ride, especially over really rough roads. The back end would literally hop. Now with the lift and Fox shocks, the truck rides great. Very smooth on the highway and feels like it has a lot more wheel travel over the big bumps. Now dont get me wrong, it still rides like a truck and not an escalade, but to me the ride is improved over stock. There is definately enough room for 37s. I opted for 35s because I still want to be able to tow with the truck, you can tell a differance in the power of the truck with the larger tires. Its not sluggish at all but the stockers are a lot light lighter in weight and rolling resistance.

Wow, that turned out nice! I love that look...looks tough as hell!

The ride drives my wife crazy. She hates how bumpy it is, and it's tempting to invest in a suspension, but mine is 2WD, so I would want something more performance oriented for the street.

Love it. Can't imagine dumping 60k+ though.

Either way, nice truck!
