    Well hello everyone, My name is Heath and im from New Braunfels TX. I recently bought an 08 GMC Sierra 1500 Vortec Max 6.0L Crew Cab Z71 4x4.

    If threre is any performance info yall have on the 6.0 it would be greatly appreciated, Im not familar with the 6.0.

    Also im looking to go with some 33x12.5. OR a simalar size as in 295-205 or whatever. What would be the best way to fit them? Leveling kit or 2-3 inches of suspension, preferably the cheapest, but not a cheap product, know what I mean.

    When I got this truck it meant I got rid of my 98 F-150 4x4 with 6" suspension and 3" body, sitting on 38x15.50 Kuhmo Muds on 18x10 067 series Eagle wheels. It was hard, but it was time to be a little more ecomomical!

    So I got the approval from the wife to make my GMC sit and look better, but can't do anything like before. So ill have alot of questions for you guys, and cant wait to get started.

    welcome to GMTC. As with all motors the usual cold air intakes, headers and cat back exhaust are always a good place to start for performance. Installing a hand held tuner or a custom tune will bring everything together. The leveling kit will be the cheaper option to fit 33s. there is a ton of info on lift kits on this site. just search the threads for "lift kit info".
