Have you looked at a front leveling kit and a body lift, I'm not ususlly a fan of body lifts, but I'm looking into the possibility what it would look like on the Colorado.

I'm looking at this kit from Rough Country (http://www.roughcountry.com/gm-combo-lift-kit-924.html). Its a 3.25" lift with a 2" leveling kit and a 1.25 body lift. The kit includes relocation brackets for the bumpers to be moved up with the body lift and a spacer to tie the bumper to the hitch. Again I'm not a huge fan of body lifts, but this one has me rethinking that... I'm not quite ready to purchase the kit just as yet... I'd like to see pics from all sides of the vehicle to see how much of the frame is exposed.... but it's got me thinking...

I just went with rough country's 2in level kit for $60 and I think it leveled it perfectly. I even added running boards just to make the climb up a little easier.

This looks really damned good! Anyone got any experience with their stuff? I have been out of the lifted truck/Jeep game for a long time. I don't remember these guys at all.

I just bought a 3"front and 2.5" rear block kit and installed them and had a front end alignment. I notice a vibration now at 20mph so now I have ordered a sway drop kit, diff drop kit, and rear shim kit. One of the three hopefully fix it. Just 2000 miles on the truck so far.

Make sure you have not accidentally put it into 4wd auto. I have the 3"kit and thought it was vibrating but was actually in auto. Once I was in 2wd It is smooth as silk.

Wow!!!! $4,147.08?!?!?!?! That seem a bit excessive!!! We have people here that put 4" or 6" lifts on for under $2,000 (installed with alignment)

B.D.S. Top of the line kit is around $3,500.

Rough Country kit is $999

2016 2wd? Didn’t know they made those. Why are you having trouble finding lift kits? Is it becuase your truck is 2wd and the lift kits say they for 4wd?

Could there be something differing in how everything mounts up without all of the linkage and such on the front end for 4x4 models?

I believe there is a difference in kits for the gas and diesel models too.

@Rockcrawlerdude im in CA and i spoke with RC staff and they also were surprised at that but i guess CA received this set up one way or another and RC also confirmed that there is no body lifts for the diesel models. But to answer your question yes due to 4wd also, does that not matter?
@Burgess159 I believe so, thats the only thing i can think of which makes sense i guess.

I’ve never been under a 2wd one so I can’t tell you for certain. Probably not much difference, though

I have 18x9 with 20 offset tire sits just outside of the fender. See the wheels and tires sub forum thread called fixing that offset
