3" Skyjacker?

Does anyone have any experience with the skyjacker 3" lift for 99-05 trucks? Im looking at installing one of these in my 2000 pretty soon and was wondering about any issues or things to know about them.

Also any ideas who might have these kits in stock? Most of the online sites show that they ship straight from the manufacturer and take up to 4weeks to ship. I cant really wait around that long since ...

New GMC Truck Leans to Left Side New GMC Truck Leans to Left Side

Hey all, I just bought new 2015 GMC Sierra SLT Crew 1500 and noticed after a couple days that it leans to the left side. The height difference between the two sides can be anywhere from 1/2" to 7/8" depending on how full the gas tank is and how level the surface is. Is this normal? I hope not. The truck was assembled in Mexico and had to ship by rail\truck for over 2000 miles. ...

I have an 03 extended cab 2 wheel drive silverado 1500 with a 2 piece driveshaft. I am experiencing a vibration that seems to be in the drivetrain that begins around 28 mph and seems to be gone by 40 mph.

Lift kit prices fixed?

Is it me, or do all the quality lift kits seem to have fixed pricing from the manfacturer? I've shopping around for a BDS 6", and almost everywhere I look, the price is about the same, with the exact price on more than a few stores sites... I noticed the same with McGaugheys kits...

I guess the maker sets a price and leaves no room for retail competition...

3.5in vs. 5in RC lift 3.5in vs. 5in RC lift

So I'm debating on which lift to purchase. I realize Rough Country may not be the best brand available but given my funds with the holidays and birthdays around the corner the prices fit my budget pretty well.

I've searched this entire website high and low and I haven't found many pictures with what I'd like to do. I'm a big fan of the lifted truck with stock wheels look. I've got an 11 z71 ...

Looking at lifting my '02 Silverado 1500

I have a 2002 Silverado 1500, I want to eventually lift it a little bit. I am looking at a 3/4 ton leaf pack in the rear end, which will lift the rear end around 2" I believe. Then I want to get new torsion keys in the front to even out the truck. My question is what shocks are good for towing and work? The reason for the 3/4 ton leaf pack is for ...

2014 Z71 Vibration Issues - possible resolution!!

So, I've chimed in on a few topics out here regarding the "smoothness of ride", or "2014 vibration issues", and after 3 trips to the dealer they may have it solved. Thought I'd post about it, since there's several here (and other places) complaining about the same issue.

I bought this truck new 1.5 months ago, and after a few days I started noticing the problem, I guess after the excitement of the new truck ...
