Hey there guys, months ago (under bad advice from a friend) I did a 2" front leveling kit on my 08 VMax and when I got the money together I bought my 33s on 20s and swapped the TPMS sensors and everything thinking I would be ready to go.. Well that was totally not the case!! The big'ol lugs on the Nitto MudGrapplers absolutely Grappled my fender wells in the rear. I trimmed and I trimmed and then I trimmed a little more.. Finally enough was enough and I put the stockers back on. I decided I'd go with the Rancho 4" and I started again to put together more friggin cash to do this but in the meantime I think I have decided to go higher.. Knowing the 33s will look puny for a while I don't care.. The next set will be 35s.

-breathe-

So the question is.. Does anyone have any insight into this Rough Country 7.5" kit? I've looked at Superlift and Skyjacker also. I really like the price of the Rough Country but am I gonna get what I pay for? The RC is NOT a one piece subframe like the Rancho. I will obviously get the support bars from the back subframe to the frame but is that enough?

Any suggestions on 6" or bigger lifts for NBS 1500 Silverados will be greatly appriciated!!

For those that don't know.. The truck has a 6.0L with CAI, a beefier version of the 4L60E known as a 4L70E and factory 4.10 limited slip.. I think I'm good in the basics department. After the lift and exhaust are done I will calling out to Justin at Black Bear for the custom tune so that is also not a worry!!

Thanks!!

I just installed my RC 7.5 the other day. Decent kit for the money. I don't like the ghetto strut spacers that hang out, but it's a pretty easy install. There's a thread here with my truck lifted.

Another RC 7.5" kit owner here. Just put it on this past weekend. Like Jonyb, there's a thread with some pics.
