    Default 2.5" leveling kit & new tires on the Z71

    Was going to do wheels at the same time, but just couldn't swing the money with the big move/new house and all that expense right now. So I'll just have to live with the stockers for awhile.


    TGC 2.5" leveling kit, 285/65/18 Nitto Terra Grapplers... really happy with how it rides/feels/looks. After going from lowering everything to this I feel like I'm a mile off the ground now LOL.

    Looks great, I was torn between that size tire and the size I went with when I bought new tires. I like your rims too.

    Thanks! I like them much better on your truck... on the silver they just blend in too much... I'll be going with something chrome when the time comes.

    I would love to trade! Haha, I've never been a big fan of the 20 inch+ wheels. I only bought this truck because it was a Texas edition 4x4 which I never see around here and I liked the options it had over the Z71's that were on the lot. Only downfall is I don't have off road tires for it to give ya so i'm sure I would personally feel obligated to give ya some cash since you got tires on yours.

    Set them up with some 33" Nitto Terra Grapplers and we'll work it out. I've only put about 500 miles on mine so far.
