Thread: Help Fine Tune My Lift Plans
04-18-2012, 10:07 AM #51
Your post reminded me of a bumper sticker I saw one time that actually made me laugh out loud while I was driving. I'm not sure I should post it though as some might not appreciate it as much.
That being said, I'm still leaning toward the nerfs mostly because I don't want to hide them. I have a friend back home who has the automatic ones and they are kind of cool to see come out when you open the door, but just not what I'm going for on my truck.
To Be Completed (Eventually):
6" BDS Suspension lift | KingShocks Front and Rear Coil Overs | 4.56 Gears | 35" A/Ts (TBD) | Cervinis 07-12 Silverado Ram Air Hood | Fab Fours Front Winch Bumper (CS07-H2051-1) | Fab Fours Full Size Rear Bumper (CS07-W1850-1) | RX-2 Series Main Grille (Black) | Line-x Bed and wheel wells | Skid Plates | Rizor Automated Tonneau Cover | Custom Bed Insert | RBP RX-3 Series Nerf Bars | Kenwood Excelon DNX9990HD | JL Audio Stealthbox (2x500RMS) | JL Audio HD 1200/1 Class D Mono Amp | JL Audio C5-653 Components (Front) | JL Audio C5-650 Components (Rear) | JL Audio Slash v2 300/4v2 Class A/B Amp

I lifted my truck to keep the fat chicks out? Cuz that's on the bumper
Bit I understand what your saying, the right nerd bars give your truck the right look but my think is I want as much ground clearance as possible in my silverado, it won't be anywhere close to the cummins in size2009 chevy 1500 z71 4x4

That'd be the one. Though the one I saw said "because fat chicks can't jump". Either way. And I've thought about getting it, but my wife already has this idea I wouldn't love her anymore if she got fat. That probably wouldn't help the complex.
And the clearance vs look is what I wrangle with. Basically, my end goal with my truck is to prove function and form and co-exist well. It does mean I have to sacrifice one somewhere and the other somewhere else though.

I know this thread is a few months old but if your looking for a quality lift, I would look into Tcs custom suspension. Ive been talking with them for a little over a month now and They offer a stage 2 7"-9" lift with rear blocks and all bolts for right around 2000, it comes with kicker bars, bilistein front replacment struts and rear shocks. You can upgrade to kings for an extra 2000 and even get rear traction bars for another 500. I would personally look into these guys, They are outta Cali. They offer great prices on rims and tires as well..
Here is there website: http://www.titscustomsuspension.com/ (not much on there for products but they do have contact info)
and if you have facebook here is there link: http://www.facebook.com/TCSuspension

I was trying to look at them a while back as I've heard a lot of good things, but on this government network, it was blocked. You can probably figure out why that might be. That being said, I finally broke down and bought myself a laptop, so I can check it out from my room.
Never mind. Just tried the link and it's not blocked anymore. Now if they'd just unblock fantasy football and gmail chat I'd be set.

They look really nice. I'll have to research the lifts themselves and see what they can do when I'm ready to buy.
