I'm slightly considering ditching my RC 3" for the 5". No not for the standard reason of I wish I would've gotten more lift, but because the 3" kit doesn't allow proper alignment which is lame, I've heard the 5" kit is better and now cost $850. However I don't want to buy bigger tires, I'd really like to see some pics with 18" wheels on 33's, but I'm interested to see whatever RC 5" pictures anyone wants to post.

Search and you will find pics. RC 5" is a great kit. Flat angles and looks great with 33s. Just do it.

Where can you get it for 850?

THANK YOU! I think I'm going to put a jack under my truck and lift it up 2" to get a good idea of exactly what mine will look like, that's presuming the RC 5" is exactly 2" higher than the RC 3". What size tires are you running? Any complaints with that lift kit?

I really don't want to go much higher than where I'm at, but the RC 5" kit is cheaper than all the 4-4.5" kits out there.

Look at member Chris15706. He's running 305/55/20 with the 5" kit along with the zone 1.5" BL.

Chris I'm in love with your truck! haha. That's why I'm copying it. I'm hoping to have my gmc 20s sometime later this week. Then tires, then I'm gonna drop down to the 5" kit.

X9 or x10 wheels? I assume you are running the 325/60's as well? I'm thinking this lift is the ticket on top of my Zone 1.5" BL. Looks good Havoc!
they are x9s. and yes that is the tire size

no real complaints. my rear shock bushings squeak a little. but aside from that the kit installed easy and drives great.
