Everything went great! I ended up having a local shop do the complete install for me. By the time I would have gone out and bought the tools I would need, plus the time and the blood, sweat, and swearing, and gotten the alignment done, it was actually cheaper to have the shop do it for me!

Thanks to Mark for all the hard work he put into putting this kit together! And thanks to everyone for your advice and input!

I think it turned out great!!! :woot: This is how the GMT360 SHOULD have come from GM! I can tell the ride is not as "cushy" as it was, but it's still not bad! The mountains around here I like to play in are STILL getting snow, so it may be a month or two before I can really try it out.

-Mark's 2.5" kit and Bilstein HD's in the front,
-Z71 shocks and springs in the rear,
-1.5" 6x5" to 6x5.5" wheel adapters (78.6 mm CB on the hub side, 100 mm CB on wheel side),
-Hummer H3 6-lug wheels
-BF Goodrich All Terrain T/A KO in 265/75/R16
-PCMforLESS Tuned PCM (Tune for 89 octane, tire size recal, #2 shift firmness, remove speed limiter, tuner's choice rev limiter, reduced torque management)

Mike's aluminum skid plate will be put on when I get some time.

I just put the tuned PCM in this morning, and holy &#^@ what a difference! I can definitely tell that they shifts are quicker and more firm than before! Having the torque management reduced is awesome! Power just pours out of the motor when asked, whether at a stop or doing 65 down the freeway! :woot:

Sorry nephew..
Makeing the lifts was a last minute thought, as you know i have
had to put in some long hrs to put this all together..but worth it all!
Everyone here now has an affordable high quality lift..
Maybe i will send you a kit for your next truck....

Me as well I would have waited too. Just by looking at what mark is making I'm sure it's a great product. I'm sure if there's a problem with anything he will indeed fix it. Nice guy the kinda person you want to do business with:thumbsup:

Sweet man, those H3 rims are really growing on me! With the lift and Z71 springs, BIG improvement! And a tune, geez man you went all out on this one!

If you can make it, check out the NW meet on May 16/17th in Seattle. Links in my sig, know its a drive from Odgen but it'd be awesome if you could come!
