Oh and I have the duramax tuner also, waiting for the lift and tires to plug it in due to the fact they programmed it for all the mods.. don't want to chance anything

its proper in the rear its lifted a little in the front until I save the money for the honey badger bumper and winch should settle down a bit with the weight.. didnt want to have to pull the coils back out to adjust them.. thanks for the compliment...

and these gmc are horrible for rubbing so far none.. but when i take it up to colorado ill see the truth on the trails and when that weight sits on it that might change it too.. if it gets to bad ill take it to a body shop and have them cut in and concave the fender reweld it and paint it for rust reasons. I didnt pay all this dough for the right gear to not get all the flex ya know... also plans for atlas 4.5 in the rear when i get the truck complete and have a extra grand to spend..
