2.5" HBS Level and RCX 1.25" BL Installed
 
Hey Guys - I've been looking into lifting my truck and I decided to go with a 2.5" HBS Leveling Kit and 1.25" RCX Body Lift to get a total of 3.75" lift up front. I wanted to be able to keep the truck in the garage, and I couldn't justify the cost of a full suspension lift for what I use the truck for, so this route seemed like a good path to get a little more aggressive look out of the truck. So far, it rides just like stock and I'm loving the stance - they should have come from the factory like this IMO.

Below are a couple of before and after pics - I'll update soon as I have a new set of wheels and tires scheduled to be put on after Thanksgiving :)...

Looks sweet man! Love the Gray and the stance. I have a silver sport same exact style and I think I want to do something similar. Are those the stock tires on there?

Thanks a lot man...yep those are the stock tires...it actually doesn't look too bad, but I think the 35s will be better :).

Thanks a lot man...I decided to go with a set of Durun Terrain Grabber MTs. My local shop had them in 35x12.5x20 for under $1300 installed so I figured I would give them a shot. They look really nice. I'll post some pics once they're on.

Very nice , Ive been wanting to do the same combo for a while. Ive got the level just havent got around to the body lift , but your pics have motivated me. Did you do it yourself.

Looks awesome.
I just got my Bilstein adjustable shocks for the front and am waiting for my 1.25" RCX body lift. It should be here Monday. Dang Thanksgiving always messes up the mail.

Cannot wait to see it with the 35"s.
I am thinking of going with Toyo O/C MT 35"X12.5X20. Hopefully they won't rub.
Let us know if you have any rubbing issues once you get the new tire put on.

Thanks a lot man...it's definitely worth it for the amount of lift you get.
