    Just like to get some opinions on the Wheel Well Moldings and the LTZ Rims. I'm also going to install a 2" leveling kit. IMAG0017.jpg IMAG0015.jpg

    I think it looks good, especially with that dark blue.

    The LTZ wheels look really good. The chrome around the wheel wells is not my taste, but its your truck.

    When you do the level take the lower air dam off. It will give it a more beefy look.

    My thoughts as well. Beautiful looking truck [MENTION=62729]jeffsZ71[/MENTION]! Have you thought about removing the "Z71" decals to give it a cleaner look?

    Are they hard to get off?

    Shouldn't be. They are just decals. A heat gun or even a hair drier will help soften the adhesive and you just pull them off.

    I would leave it just as is. The chrome well well moldings look good on a dark colored truck like yours. Do you have the chrome tailgate handle as well?

    IMO leveling kits are not that noticeable in the 2", and they throw off your suspension geometry. So in the end you end up spending ~$200(kit + install + alignment) for very little to nothing.

    Kind of a moot point. The same can be said for a lot of mods people do to their vehicles. Plenty of mods are done "just for looks."

    I agree, but IMO a 2" lift is virtually un-noticeable. Spend money on mods that actually make the truck look good.

    The chrome wheel well arches on the OP's truck really popped, you notice them. I seriously doubt that anyone is going to notice a 2" lift in the front unless they are told that the truck has a 2" lift.

    It all depends on what you want to do with your truck... that 2"-2.5" lift may just be enough to clear larger tires without a full on lift costing thousands. I myself like the larger tires... but do not really care for a full lift. I'm getting to old to climb into a truck... and like the fact that I can still get it in the local automated carwash... especially in the winter....:)))

    The other thing to remember is that the truck's owner will know he has a 2" level in the front and that may be all that matters. Who cares what other think or notice?

    @jeffsZ71 what tires do you have on your truck? The make/model?

    i can almost always tell when someone leveled a truck. especially when one thats leveled is parked next to one thats not.

    i think it looks great!

    Once again the OP was asking for OPINIONS, I gave him my opinion. If my disagrees with others, oh well, feel free to ignore them.

    You are out of your mind. Any truck guy would be able to pick out a leveled truck over a stock truck a mile down the road. And give it up about the suspension parts wearing. Have you ever owend a leveled or lifted truck? What are you basing your opinions on?
