qpholley13's 2013 GMC Sierra

Postby qpholley13 [OP] » Apr 16 2015, 8:39pm

Well guys, the time has come. After 2.5 months of 75hr weeks of night shift I finally have a handful of days to get atleast most of my sh*t in one sock.

Currently the truck has about 25k miles on the premium rcx 3.5" lift and overall I have been happy with the kit except for that constant nag in the back of my mind to go bigger and to get rid of the stretched level angles. I want this to serve as advice to anyone who's on the fence about going big or staying relatively small; if you have any inclination of wanting to go big, DO IT AND DO IT THE FIRST GO AROUND!!!!!! :headwall:

The plan of attack as of now is to start on my zone 6.5" lift install tomorrow morning and hopefully have it wrapped up by Saturday. (I'll be working by myself on jack stands)

Now for the goodies
I got off work at 0630 and had these bad boys mounted and balanced by 0930

Got the rear done after a late start last night. The pictures don't do the amount of rake justice, it's ridiculous in person. Don't mind the old square body making a guest appearance.
