Hello everyone!

Ive bought a 2011 GMC 2500HD SLT Duramax and thought id start to change things up on it..

So here it is on the day I bought it.

Tried to buy some 20x10 Novakane and they were gone for 2-3 weeks! Everywhere!

Next in the process is some Cognito UCAs and a BDS 6.5.. well.. its actually already in the shop for it!

I went with a 4" block instead of 3, or a 5..

anyways.. let me know what you guys think!

I gotta thank WildChevys! Very helpful dude with things! and JWC about trimming!Heyyaa

Got on the Cognito UCAs and Fox 2.0s. Great ride for sure.. Couldn't be more happier overall with the lift!

Except now my rear, because I put a 4" block in the rear the shop installed a bigger spacer for the Airbags I have in the back, they sit kind of high and push the truck up in the rear to have a 1/2" rake.. My dad said the Airbag spacer is supposed to be equal or shorter than the lifting block height..

Anyone have any input on this?

Thanks!

Here is a picture so far of everything
-Debadged
-Removed the chrome nerf bars
-BDS 6.5" lift with 4" Rear block
**I might be buying a new 4" rear lift block and bringing it to work and shaving it down in my CNC Mill. I wanted a 3.5" block but they said they didn't have one.. So that's what I'll probably do if the BMF 20x10s fit with extra room.
-AMP power steps with LEDs



I just ordered some Xenon HIDs and black mirror covers to replace the chrome ones now!
Wheels are still 2-3weeks out..

Thank you!

I just got done putting in the airbag spacer for the rear.

Mirror covers and HIDs should be here today.. But the snow just started coming down like crazy so hopefully they come today.

Well some updates..

HIDs still not in.. Been extremely busy at work doing some machining for a rig that rolled out on a job.

Got my black mirror covers and was going to put them on last night real quick, and noticed I had a giant ding in the tailgate... Wow.

Called up a body shop I always go to and got a new one today and getting the mirror covers painted white too..

I have no idea how it got there.

I'll have pictures when it's all bolted back on with the new mirrors!

Well here you guys go!

20x10 Novakane wheels in the Death Metal finish.

I also replaced the chrome OEM mirrors with some white ones I got painted.

Sorry for the crap pictures. I was in a rush, I'll get some good ones soon!

Haha. I just didn't have a picture of that yet.
