any good lifts for a chevy colorado? I've been looking around but still haven't decided... hoping that some one can make a recommendation or give me some ideas on brand and size.. (I'm thinking 4"-5" maybe 5.5" but no more than that) hoping to fit a 33" tire inside those square wheel wells also. thanks !

Im waiting for the ZR2 1.5" body lift to come out from GM. Supposed to know more about it soon. Currently have a 1.25" leveling kit sitting in the box waiting to be installed. Pics will be uploaded

Well, they don't have any body lifts for the Diesels as of yet. (not that I'm aware of anyhow) Due to relocating the turbo's. Apparently there's not an easy way of doing that.

If the turbo is the prob then it Probably could be done with custom intercooler pipes, should be the only thing that’s standing in the way. The afe Pipes would work you would just have to shorten the leg that goes down to the intercooler. Effectively the intercooler would be raised up 1.5” with the body and the engine and turbo will stay where they are.

Really the best thing to do is stay away from body lifts. Far away.

That and the cooling fan possibly... It would be nice going to an electric cooling fan though.

Nope... Haven't heard anything rubbing at all. Could be because of my offset of my wheels.

what is the offset? I plan on doing the rough country lift as well but keeping the stock rims and tires (I have the midnight edition with the z71 so they come with a mud tire anyway) how is the ride? and mpg?
