Body lifts on the GMT-900's looks great. They show probably less frame than the stock 2500's do and as long as you use some type of gap guards and raise the bumpers (which most kits come with all necessary parts) it's difficult to tell that they're there. I removed my spare and my hitch, because it's extremely rare that I tow so there really aren't any blatantly obvious indicators that I have a body lift.
Aesthetics aside, a body lift leaves the factory suspension completely untouched, which in the grand scheme of things is good. Especially when comparing it in terms of price and quality to any of the 3" "suspension" kits out there. Kits like the RC 3" and the Ready Lift 4" are incomplete and a waste of money IMO.
As far as the RC 5" kit, it's the best thing RC has going for it. I wouldn't buy it because I have been burned by RC's lack of quality and customer service but I think it's an okay kit.

I only leveled the front to fit larger tires with out the big cost of a lift kit. When I hook up to my trailer now or have a few hundred pounds in the bed, the truck looks weak. Putting some blocks in the rear will help with some of the sag from the load. Yes, some of the rake will be back but not like from the factory. I got closer to 2.5" of lift from the 2.25 level kit and the rear blocks are just 1" larger than factory rear blocks.
