I want to start a topic of what size lift(s) you all used with your tire combo

I really don't want to buy bigger than 33" tires but love the look of the 6"-7.5" lifts, wondering if anyone has a 6 inch lift or bigger with 33" tires

I had a 2" Zone level on my 07 Silverado and 33" tires but I want to go bigger lift with my 2010 Sierra, hopefully 3.5-5" or larger RCX or Zone

I have been on here almost 2 years and I have seen hundreds of pics now but I haven't really decided which lift I want this time

Lets see your pics

what lift will also depend on what wheels you wanna run also. Like you i am running 33's with only a RC level kit. I will be installing the RC 3.5" lift with UC arms once i get some time. And since i am not gonna be running big offset wheels it will be perfect. Some are still rubbing with same lift and 33's cause of wheel offset. I think a 5 inch lift would be the limit to still run 33's without looking like you could not afford bigger tires but i still prefer 35's on a 5" lift. But with running 35's most will regear also and thats an extra grand minimum.

I had the 2 inch level and stock tires it just wasn't enough lift for me. I opted for the RC premium 3.5" kit this summer and couldn't be happier. It still keeps the truck at a useable height but gives it a noticeable lift. I have it with 285/70/17 Cooper STT tires.
My god. gorgeous truck.

Im gona be getting new 33" goodyear duratracs for my RC 2.5" leveling kit and if this topic is still active ill post pics

Thats exactly what i am running 295/65/18 duratracs. They will rub though in reverse until you do fender mod

This isn't my truck but love the look, this member is running the RC 4.75 combo lift with 33's. I like that there is a little more space in the wheel well so it gives the "illusion" that there is more lift.

Nice trucks everybody :cool:

I was leaning towards the 3.5 RCX already and it looks good but now that I have seen this truck I may have to go with a 4.75 combo or a 5 inch lift, only problem with the 5 inch RCX is it will push the front wheels out 2 inches on each side so the 4.75 may be the better way to go for me. :cool:

This lift will definitely make my nfabs look necessary

I do love the looks of that truck with the 4.75" suspension/body lift combo running 33's. I however am not a fan of body lifts. If i was willing to spend the extra $$ i wold go with the 5" suspension lift and add some fender flares. Maybe that will be an option for me in the future.

How much and where will i have to trim the fender? Im new to adding larger tires so i have never messed around with trimming and such.

And i wish i had waited to have neough money for the 4.5" combo kit but i wanted larger tires for this winter so i went with the 2.5" kit with 3" rear blocks. It provides a decent amount of clearance and allows me to run 33's so im happy with it. For now ;) :twisted:

I'm running the 3.5 " RC lift as well, with 285/70/17's on a -12 offset rim. They rub a little backing out of the drive way, that's one of the reasons I'm thinking of upgrading to a 5" RC lift next year, that and I want a little more height and to run 33x12.5x17's...

Having a problem posting pics right now, so see sig, I'll try again later...

See, im planning on running 285/70/17 Duratracs with my 2.5" kit on stock wheels. I am really hoping that i wont have to trim anything. and hearing that the same size tire, with different offset, rubs sorta freaks me out a bit... :shock:

You wont rub with stock wheels. I am running 285/65 r18s on stock wheels with a 1.77" front and 1" rear lift. I don't rub at all. I may do a 3.5" kit some day but I do like the way the truck sits now.
