    Default Mild Lifted 09 Silverado

    I know there are a lot of nicer and crazier lifted, mod Silverado out there but I guess I can just throw the pic of my truck online for suggestion or criticize ?
    It's 2009 Silverado with 3.5 Doetchtech Spindle, 1'' spacer. 3'' rear block. 17x9 Procomp. 285x70x17 BFG AT. Chrome grill ( don't feel it, looks kinda weird, maybe it's just me). I'm planning to add the intake but not sure what else. Open to suggestion

    Looks good and I like your grill. Like others have said, it looks like a good height.

    Is your truck 2wd? I am looking on their website and it only lists spindles for 2wd not 4wd.

    Thanks guy, I thought of going higher and actually put on the procomp 6'' before. However, it's not very practical since it's my DD. but over all, I enjoyed it, I gotta say GM made a lot better truck than Ford (had a F150 before) or Toyota (my friend owns a Tundra and it's a piece of crap).

    Yup, it's 2wd. I think Doestchtech made the lift kit for 4WD too, but I'm not sure, you may need to call them.

    Sorry but I'm not sure what you meant by Fender measurement?

    For the fender measurements just measure at the center of the wheel from the ground to the fender.

    Your truck looks great! Since you are planning to add an intake, may want to think about an exhaust.
