    Default Lift kit / type advice

    Hey guys... I have previously bought a black 2007 SIlverado 1500 Z71 4x4 crew cab. I am looking to gain some insight and knowledge about lift kits, wheel/tire packages, and upgrades to get the most out of my truck. Any and all info helps. I am looking into 4-5" lift kits and 20' wheels with 35x12.50 tires. thanks and looking forward to it..

    Welcome to the Club! Sounds like a good plan but if you want to ride on 35's you'll have to go bigger than a 4-5" kit. You'll have to look more to 7-9" lift or 4" with 2" body lift. But jump over the lifted and offroad forum to help out.

    What is "nnbs" ? I'm new to the lingo.

    I hVe thought about keys and blocks but I don't know how we'll the ride is or the damage it will cause

    If you have keys then its a 07 classic. Nnbs is the new body style

    Welcome to the GMTC
    As lingo goes NNBS means new new body style trucks from 2007 and after
    NBS means from about 1999-2007(classic style)
    OBS means from 1988-1999/2000(classic style)

    My Tahoe is a OBS, @SurrealOne's Sierra is a NBS, NNBS is what the new Chevy trucks are.

    1996 Chevy Tahoe LT 5.7L V8 4X4 205,000+ miles. Built proudly at Janesville Assembly in Janesville, Wisconsin
    Basic mods: Lights all over, bunch of electrical work, and a couple cooling mods.
