Thanks guys. I recently ground down the paint off the front bumper and filled in the weld gaps then repainted it. The rear bumper is done and complete, painted, and mounted. The roof rack is completed as well. I just need to grind it smooth and paint it. Then onto mounting it onto my roof

Just got the Rancho 4" lift with 7000 series shocks on my Avalanche. Wheels are 18x9 Moto Metal 962's and the tires are Cooper Discoverer ST Maxx's in 305/60/18. Love the new look and stance of the Avalanche. Only drove about 70 miles on them but the Maxx's on-road manners have been pleasantly surprising. Noise is not bad at all, very minimal and tolerable. Ride is a little harsher but I'll have to play around with the pressure to find the most comfortable ride. Could also be caused by the new shocks too.  Here are some pictures for you though. Enjoy!

Very nice looking @kuyawil I like the overall look of it. Use some Plasti-dip to do the sails and really make it all flow nicely. I did mine, and it's night & day.

Did they trim differentials for your superlift?

Did they have to trim the differential for your full throttle lift? I have a dark metallic grey 2500 too. Like the lift. I am looking at a different tire and rim set up. No 20's for this guy. But what did you do for gears  after the lift? I was thinking of solid axle swap Dana 60 full float 14 bolt rear NP241 case swap.

And how does it ride? Huge plus if it doesn't break off road and rides better than factory lol

7" McGaughy's Autoride lift. Factory 20's with 2" hub extenders, on 35x12.50 Toyo MTs. I still had to cut about 1.5" off of my bumper and black lower air dam, and the front side of the factory running boards. Over all the lift and tires have me about 11.5" higher than factory.

Not much.  All I've done so far was trim the little plastic pieces in front of each tire and the inner fender well to match.  I've got some obvious rubbing on the nerf bar trim so I'll trim that.  Trying to avoid trimming the bumper but I think I've got rubbing there when turning in reverse.  I'm trying to keep it as clean as possible so it doesn't look like a hack job.

That's where i'm at right now. I'm at a point where I only rub at full lock in reverse. I think I'm good without rubbing at full lock forward as long as I don't hit a dip or bump, lol.
