Just finished installing this on my 09 Z71 and install was pretty simple. Took maybe 2 hours. Jacking the truck up and taking and reinstalling tires was the majority of it!

but a pry bar, impact gun, jack, jackstands, few wrenches, and a allen wrench are all you really need for a at home install. I had a body lift just put on and I did this just to help clear the wheels. But the front sits at 42inches and the rear at 41 roughly at the fenders. Gained 3 inches up front just from the leveling kit

if anyone needs a leveling kit, check them out.. install is a breeze! Instant results LOL.

now hostage wheels go on tomorrow!! MUAHAHAHA

haha i hear ya... will have some up tonight but it doesnt look great without the wheels on yet.. still stock 17's and 265s lol

I honestly wasnt expecting to see a big difference with leveling kit. As soon as I lowered all tires on the ground you could definitly see the difference. You can feel it inside the truck also. Lays you back in the seat more now. Dunno why I waited this long to do a leveling kit

Ya man that bl doesn't look bad at all. Atleast not in those pics lol, I think the steps hide it pretty good. Did u get gap guards also? I'm kinda thinkin of putting the 3" bl on mine now lol.

looks good, very tempting to do but i can't stand seeing the frame show. Even with steps you can see it. would drive me nuts. But can't wait to see how it looks with new wheels!

Once you clean the frame up, it really doesn't look too bad!
