2011 6.7 Pics with Leveling kit, Bilsteins, BMF Novakanes

Here she is. I know black on black isn't for everyone but it's my first. Overall, I'm extremely happy. The Bilsteins are night and day difference from the stock shocks. The leveling kit is the perfect height for me as I'm coming from a 7in BDS on my 2010 Duramax. My wheels are BMF Novakane 20x10's on 35x12.5x20 Toyo's. My original plan was for Nitto Terra Grapplers but they stuck out a little too far for my taste. I think I'm pushing the limits here with backspacing(4.75) and offset(-19mm) on the 20x10's. You'll see what I'm talking about in the pics. I also installed my AMP steps last night, not seen in pics.

When I bought the truck it already had 35% tint and I wanted somewhere around 15-20%. So when I got the lift installed I had them re-tint it. They ended up putting 30% over the original. Not sure where it puts me now but it doesn't look legal. I had 5% on my last truck and never got harassed.

It's raised 3" in front with a polycarbonate spacer(Daystar) and has an added 1 1/2" block in the rear with longer U-bolts. The Bilsteins are the 5100 series. I think the lift is Daystar which obviously doesn't compare to icon or the other leveling kits on the market but it had a lifetime warranty and cost 5x less. For the money you can't beat it. The ride and look is significantly better than stock. I'm not planning on doing any serious off roading so it serves it's purpose for me.

I'd get some fender flares or Flaps ASAP to protect the paint on the sides!

Truck Looks Great Bro!

I agree with Lead might want to look into something for paint protection from the tires though.
