See I'm the opposite, I can't stand the look of rake. I think these trucks are some of my favorite IMO. Nothing against anyone else's because there's a lot of great looking trucks in this thread.

5" with 33s on factory 18s




7.5" with 33s on factory 18s



I know this is about 3 years later, but I'm wanting to swap out my 295/70R18s for some 35/12.50s. I have the stock 18s and a 5" RCX as well. Just wondering how you got those to fit. I was under the impression that I would need at least a 1 inch spacer up front too keep the tire from rubbing on the suspension? I don't want to have to trim my studs unless it is minimal.

Minor trimming in the fender well

I am very happy with how it came out. The tires poke out about a couple inches! My set up is the 5" with bilsteins set at 1.77"

i just purchased a RC 5" for my 2016 Silverado, my only concern is how far the wheels are gonna stick out, i also have on the way Hostile Alpha 20x10 - 19, so my question is how far do you guys think they will stick out?, I'm ok with 1-2 inches . Is there anything you can do if its to far for someones liking except less offset? I also have 1.5" spacers for the back wheels to match the front

$40-100 for the shackles depending on what you buy and where you get it, I would do it myself not sure about a shop. Local guy vs dealership etc.

Rough Country assumes that everyone likes the stink bug look...on my old Chevy, I put a 2" leveling kit on the front with the lift to add another inch to it and make it level.

i actually just measured it and there is 1 7/8 inch higher in the back , so i could just get a 3 inch rear lift block to replace the 4.5 inch, how hard is it to replace the lift block on your own????

Any 2014 GMC with 5” rough country lifts? Had it on my 08 a few years back and it had a super aggressive stance. Got rid of my 14 Silverado with 7” rough country, I’m looking to do the 5” on my truck now so it’s more family friendly just don’t know what rubber will fit decent and not be too aggressive. I have in mind 20x9 +0 offset and a 305 tire but I’d like to fill out the fender well more anyone with a 295 60 20??? Pics? Also I have stock Rancho front struts anyone heard any issues with this making the lift higher? Or any other issues?

Sooo...I just ordered the rc 5” lift for my 07 4wd, I’m planning on buying new upper control arms to throw in at the same time. Is there any benefit to buying the rc upper control arms for 2-4” lift? Or will these give the wrong angle as they are meant for the level kits? In which case should I just get another set of stock uppers?
Any info would be greatly appreciated. Random question I know.
