Been tossing this idea around in my head and would love to see what it looks like, having a hard time finding it anywhere though. Post some pics up if you got em!

This, Level + 1.5" BL is within 1-2" fender height of a 4-6" RCX. Only difference is the RCX has awesome angles at the same de-cranked height as a cranked level.

4" & 6" RCX are the same lift, only difference is rear block, and the amount of cranking on the TB's. 4" RCX, with de-cranked stock keys on 33's or something like a 305/55/20 would ride awesome, and your front end would thank you coming from a levelled stance. :imo

Stock keys can be had on ebay for like $40-50 bucks.

Otherwise you won't be able to go quite as low, fully de-cranked leveling keys are still indexed for more lift at low crank, so your gunna be around 5" at lowest.

the fact that the RCX only drops the diff 4.5", to get a true 6" of lift, its basically same angles as a levelled truck... So to fit 35's on aftermarket wheels requires trimming, no metal, but bottom of bumper and fender liner most often. Rear your fine.

What size/kind of wheels you plan to run?

The A721's look sweet!! 20x9 with -12 on a 305/55/20 would go awesome with 4" RCX, your keys de-cranked.

Back to the original question tho would it help if I did regear axles?
Height wise? no... (original question). But do you have factory 3.42's or 3.73's? 4.8L, 5.3L or 6.0L? You do highway, or town or both?

I've got a BL sitting here waiting to be put on top of my leveling kit on my RCSB ......

But, I keep leaning towards holding off until I could save up for a 4" RCX NTD.... 20s/33s. :thumbsup:
