update 2003 Z-71 BDS Suspension lift

I went and picked up my truck today from the shop and the new lift made a drastic change in the look of my truck. I went with the BDS suspension 6" and 16x8 Typhoon wheels with Pro Comp 315/75/16. I will post a before and after shot tommorow when I can get a picture its dark here now. I want to thank all you for the expert help in making a decision on what to buy, you guys really know your stuff.

Along with the pics, don't forget to give us a personal review of how it rides / handles / wheels / jumps... nah, forget jumps for now.

Awesome looking truck man. How do you like the ride and tires? Did you need to do any trimming to fit the tires?

Re: update 2003 Z-71 BDS Suspension lift

The tires are Pro Comp Mt's and no trimming was required
nor have I rubbed on anything. The shop owner told me NOT to run a 16x10 wheel because it would rub turning on level surface. To me a 16x10 would make your tire stick out a little further and you would put more wear on your cv's.
Over-all the ride is good handles very well and so far thumbs up for BDS Suspension, although this weekend I'll put it in the mud and see what she'll do
