Whats crackin everyone? I bought a 02 2500 series avalanche and want to run 37 inch tires on it. I have been lookin at cst, whiplash, fullthrottle, etc has anyone here lifted an avalanche to this size or bigger? and which kit did you use. I am against body lifts so it has to be all suspension. Any help would be great.
P.S. I already tore that ugly plastic body cladding off and taped over the the holes and line x the body. some what not as ugly now

i have same kit as sevenfold with a body lift. As he said, i don't think i could be any happier with my lift. I have had it for less than a week and already got alot of comments. (this is area full of big trucks so it means that much more)
Any lift from a 10" to a 12" would be perfect for 37's. I'd recommend cognito or full throttle.

Yah get some pics of what you did...i cant picture it. If i were you, i'd color match those moldings. I think avalanches look sweet as hell lifted with color matching

I was looking at them this past weekend. They are a very practical/versitile (sp?) vehicle. Here is my favorite AV of all time.

Ill get some picks when things start shapping up. With the stock ride height it isnt lookin to good. I got the idea of the line x from the petersons off road and there avalanche at last years offroad expo at pomona.
For the front and rear I thinking about building a prerunner bumper that will house a winch for the front. I was looking at the road armor bumpers and Im not going to spend that much for a bumper. How much did you guys pay for the cognito 10"-12" lift? What gear ratio are you running? I have stock 4.10 but I was thinking 4.56 might do it. What do you guys think?

Oh JLA the 7-9" kit, will the tires clear the fenders or will I have to pull out the hammer for them to clear?
Thanks for the help
