    Hello everyone,

    I just bought my 2011 Chevy Silverado in Feb. and I'm looking to do some mods to it in the near future. I want to be able to put 35"s on it with some offset black rims. Right now I have a red pin stripe and painted stock rims, I'll be sure to put some pictures up later. I am also looking to put a bed liner, exhaust, headers, tint, fender flares, and some more lights on it. I haven't decided on which parts yet but thats going to be the fun part. I'm open for any ideas
    Thanks,
    Nate

    Do most Lift Kits come with leveling kits as well?

    The only one that I know that uses a leveling kit with suspension lift is RoughCountry and they have had issues. Go with one of the companies I mentioned above.
