Here is my 2008 sierra with 2" RC level and PA 3" BL The level kit was easy to install less the 50 minutes to install, now the BL was a real bitch....the front and rear bumper were crazy to reinstall. But I am totally happy I made my own rear gap guards and the hitch will be modified to work with the rollpan I am installing, next is the running boards (want the Iron cross with drop step) and just going to go with 285/70/17 for tires as I do alot of driving almost 60,000KM per year....but yes go for the BL, everyone will tell you they suck, well they wont give you frame ground gains but you can run larger tires ....and thats all I wanted to do, I dont do any any if all off roading just like the look wich a bodylift can do!

Sophia - what is your wheel tire combo? I have a new silver crew cab that I am trying to decide on wheels and tires for. Yours look sweet.

I would recommend a suspension lift before a body lift but that's your call

I opted for a body lift as I drive my truck 70,000km per year and did not want my suspension parts wearing out any faster then they do already.
