    Hey guys... I have previously bought a black 2007 SIlverado 1500 Z71 4x4 crew cab. I am looking to gain some insight and knowledge about lift kits, wheel/tire packages, and upgrades to get the most out of my truck. Any and all info helps. I am looking into 4-5" lift kits and 20' wheels with 35x12.50 tires. thanks and looking forward to it..

    Welcome to the Club! Sounds like a good plan but if you want to ride on 35's you'll have to go bigger than a 4-5" kit. You'll have to look more to 7-9" lift or 4" with 2" body lift. But jump over the lifted and offroad forum to help out.

    If your truck is a nnbs then you can fit 35s with the rancho 4 inch kit

    If you have keys then its a 07 classic. Nnbs is the new body style

    Welcome to the GMTC
    As lingo goes NNBS means new new body style trucks from 2007 and after
    NBS means from about 1999-2007(classic style)
    OBS means from 1988-1999/2000(classic style)

    My Tahoe is a OBS, [MENTION=50075]SurrealOne[/MENTION]'s Sierra is a NBS, NNBS is what the new Chevy trucks are.

    haha Gotcha I have the NNBS (see photos) i am looking for the look more then anything. im not going to be off-roading more then needed and I dont have the cash to damage anything so I want the look more and performance more then durability.
