  1. Looks great installed 2012 Silverado Ext. cab LTZ - Posted by: Tony (8/4/15)

    Shipping was extremely fast. Received mine the next day. I did the majority of the lift myself but needed help aligning the front bumper. The install wasn't that easy on the cab part of the truck. The driver and passenger side cab mount bolt that's under the seat on both sides gave me a fit. The weld on the nut that's inside the chassis broke loose at the weld. You have to access the nut from under the carpet above each mount. Luckily mine had access plugs to each bolt. It was still a pain to break loose. Had to cut mine to get them out. Be careful on that bolt on both sides. Also my steering shaft wouldn't slide back down in the sleeve after I lifted it. The shaft is prone to "seize" inside the boot at the firewall. It's supposed to telescope. I had to clamp mine with vice grips and tap it down/out to get my bolt to go back in. The rear portion is a breeze.

    I had already installed the 2.5 " level/lift and wanted a little more height. I'm very satisfied with the look of my truck now. Good luck and I hope you don't have the problems I had.

  2. overall the product looks great on my 2011 gmc - Posted by: bspeirs (7/27/15)

    Looks great added to my 2.5" leveling kit I already has installed. Only issue is that it is still rubbing when I turn sharp. That's with 285x70x17 duratracs. But the look of the truck is awesome.

  3. Subtle lift, extra tire clearance that was needed. 2007 GMC Sierra SLT 2WD - Posted by: Carl (6/3/15)

    I agree with Owen's review. Be sure to watch the video RC provides for the installation. The only thing they should have mentioned was the removal process of the plastic panel that wraps between the front bumper and grill around to each fender well. There are two screws on each side in the wheel well and two bolts(10mm) you will need to reach from underneath with at least two long extensions. Once you get this panel off the removing the grill gets easier.

  4. Great look - Posted by: owen (2/14/15)

    This lift looks good. I didn't want alot of lift. The detailed instructions were good and precise. I installed the lift by myself but would suggest you get an extra set of hands for the bumper installations. The install time of 1-3 hours is with help. If you install alone, expect about 8 to 10 hours. All in all a great lift. Love the look it gave to my truck. I already had the 2" leveling kit installed. If you don't already have yours leveled i would suggest the 3.25 lift kit. You can't go wrong. Thanks Rough Country,
