Pretty Sweet, but I don't know the brand too well. I know if you don't get rim protectors integrated in the tires you can't go near rocks W/O gouging those lips!

In-case your new, you can only lift the Truck up to 3in W/O getting into too much money/Customizations., which means up to I think 33in tires.

Ya I am sorta new to the whole mod thing lol got to start somewhere. You were saying sometires come with rim protectors?? Ya I read that they everyone on hear was trying to get a diff. company besides BDS to make a 6" lift that would be nice but I guess if all I can do is 3" thats ok.

The rim protectors are just a Raised Ridge of rubber around the lip where the tire and rim meet, so if you scrub the curb, you have a better chance of not hurting the Lip of the rim. Kina like a bumper for your rim.

As for the Kit for a 6in lift, It won't come for a while and I doubt it won't come at a high price because of the linkage or Mounts going through the Tranny or Engine Components. I'm sure the more Seasoned TrailVoyers will give you thread links to what I'm talking about.

You can go with the smaxx spacers 2.5 inches up front and z71 springs and shocks in rear with/without a spacer, or a full 2 inch bds suspension lift front and rear, and on top of the bds or smaxx suspension you can go with the bds 2 inch body lift. So with that you can get atleast 4.5" inches of lift from that then you add bigger tires then you add a little more to that.

I was looking at Dizzlenator's he just got his done "My lift consists of the Smaxx 2.5" spacers, Bilstein HD fronts, 09 Tahoe Z71 rears, 1.5" spacers from Fred @ wheeladapter.com, and 255/75/17 BFG Mud Terrains." it looks good nice and even. If I go with 2.5" in the rear as well would it make it on even??

If you go with Z71 springs and shocks on the rear with the 2.5' up front it will make your tb level. Mine sits pretty level and thats the setup i have. I would go with a small spacer which will give a little rake.

Yes a 2.5" with springs and shocks on the rear would be way uneven you would be nose down in the ground and i dont think that would even be safe....

check out the directionsl General Grabber UHP. I have them and they are really nice tires besides having the lip protection. Out of 19 tires on a list they were 2nd only by a hair for all aspects of perfomance and price. I have 275/45/20 on my TBSS.
