    Default Hello new here and got my first truck

    Well I just turned 16 and my oldmans giving me his 2004 Silverado 4wd 2500HD crew cab. Its got a 6.0 with flowmasters and some 34's I think. But I want to put a lift and 38's So I was wondering how much lift it would be and I will do body but not more that 3 inches.

    We are the Borg. Lift your vehicle and surrender your keys. We will add your biological and technological distinctiveness to our own. Resistance is futile. Erm, I mean ... welcome to GM Truck Club!

    6" Lift + 3" Body lift and you can put some 37's under there. Don't forget that as you upsize your tires you also need to move to shorter gears and you have to do both diffs since you're in a 4x4.

    So I am looking at the 9 inch CST lift. If I do that and a 2inch body I should be able to get 38's under it. what do you think.

    Reasonable as long as you regear to go with those 38's. What ratio are you running, now?
