    Default Leveling kit installed! ~ 2" Rough Country on Silverado with Photos

    Just got a Rough Country 2'' leveling kit put on my Silverado and my dad's Sierra. His truck is a crew cab so the rake wasn't as noticeable. I think it really improves the looks of both. Now they actually look like they are 4 wheel drive. Up next is a K&N Intake and window tint for summer. I might get a set of WeatherTech or Huskey mats. I'm tired of cleaning out those grooves on the stock mats.

    Looks great! It sounds like you are now an expert on installing leveling kits.

    I didn't install it. No way! My neighbor was going to, but he decided it was too hard. I had a local shop do it.

    Ahh...saved yourself the headache, huh? And probably quite a bit of time. Definitely looks good either way!

    Truck looks great man! Some more aggressive tires would really set that truck off in my opinion. Maybe a bull bar or brush guard too. Good job!

    I'm looking at a bull bar right now and I will definitely get more aggressive tires when these wear out!
