Lift Kit how to fit 38/15.50 tire

Postby LSFREAK [OP] » Jul 02 2013, 3:11am

I am in the market to buy a lift kit and unsure on how tall ill have to go to fit a 38x15.5 tire under it. I own a 2003 sierra 2500HD 4x4. It doesn't bother me if I would have to cut some off the front valence. I also don't know what company I should buy from. Any help would be awesome and maybe a couple pictures if you have done the same thing. Thanks a lot! :)

Do it right the first time with a set of Rockwell 2 1/2 ton axles and don't look back.

The Dana 60 kit isn't to bad of a price at all. I figured it would have been more. I'm going to look into a solid axle seap

For that height, I would definitely do a solid front axle conversion. About $1500, minus shocks, donor Dana 60 front axle (width correct width), re-gear both axles, potentially needing new front wheels to match hub pattern on donor axle, plus misc brake line and steering linkage parts. And then the tires...

Somewhere around $4-5,000 for everything, minus labor if you're not doing it yourself.

if you want to keep the ifs... sadly in reality a SAS is more like $10k when all said and done--between driveshafts, transfercase parts or clocking, axles, lift, conversion parts, cross over steering etc...

McGaughy's makes a large lift that's decent quality. your probably going to be in the 10" lift area... While a solid axle lift is the best route. your IFS can do it.

Superlift can help you

Cognito, CST, Whiplash, Bullet Proof....they can all help you

3" body lift with some major trimming should do it.
