    There used to be a kid in a lowered Tacoma that would drive by our 4x4 truck meets wearing "TRD Off-Road 4x4" stickers on the bedsides of his truck, Pissed a lot of guys off.
    I met the kid one day at an auto parts store, the funniest part was his truck was a 4x4 that he'd lowered.

    That is funny :) I still like the idea of the magnetic decals for 4x4 and Z71 on a 2wd that is lifted..... it would mess allot of the people up cause the only way to tell if it really is 4x4 is to get under the truck.

    lol, True. Everyone asks me if it is a 4x4. When I say no. They are so surprised.

    ^^^^There I fixed that for you!

    Here is what a 2wd Silverado looks on 3.5" Rough Country lift on 265/70/17 (1st pic) but you can run 295/70/17, no rub (2nd & 3rd pic on stock rims)

    I like the 3.5" lift but I want bigger. Possible?

    Yep! I just looked at it. They have a 2.5", 3.5", 4.75" combo body/suspension, 5", and a 7" for the 2008 and on 2wd GM trucks. If it were me I would go with the 7". You don't have to put 35's on it but can if you want to in the future. The only thing that concerns me is that it says it uses a 6.5" anti-wrap block for the rear. That is a huge block. Actually, that size block may be illegal in Michigan, I would have to check the law again, but I seem to remember the limit in block height being 4"

    Go big the first time, because as soon you put 4" you'll be saying, damn I should have gone higher :lol:
