Awesome! Bomber, were you the one who recommended Blistein shocks to me in my Improving Z71 Suspension thread? I'm thinking about going with those shocks. How is the ride quality? And with 2 inches are they clearing 33's? I guess they should.

It is subtle-doesn't jump out at you like the 6" lifts do. It kinda looks like it could have been stock.
I'm not a fan of huge lifts- they ruin the mpg and make the trucks less useful as an actual people ,dog,cat and stuff hauler.
A 2" lift won't hurt the handling much to speak of, won't hurt the mpg much and won't impair functionality at all-might actually improve it if you live on a crummy road and need the extra clearance those bigger tires will give you.
LOOKS COOLS ALSO!! Very nice!

Looks good. To me thats the right way to level a NBS 1500 truck.

Thank you so much for all the great comments.I had all the work done at TOYS'N TIRES in Elie Mb and they did a great job.They charged me $330.00,my dealer wanted 700.00 for the same job.Elie is 30 minutes from Winnipeg and the shop has been specializing in lifts for over 15 years.Im going to be purchasing my 33"Mickey Thompson rubber from them in the new year as they have promised they will beat any price i can find ANYWHERE!Great guys that deserve the plug i'm giving them here.
