Went with the 1.25" kit from Zone since I occasionally tow a boat, I was concerned I'd squat too much with the 2". My installation only added 1" and while it looks great with the slightly bigger Falken Wildpeak AT3W 265/65R18, I think 2" would have been better. May upgrade at some point. Here are the before and after pics.

How do you like those Wildpeaks? I have the same lift and have been looking hard at those or the KO2s. The KO2s are just sooo expensive.

Looks great! Any rubbing? I have a ‘21 Z71 and I did the Zone 1.25”. I also only got an inch of lift from it. I have 17” wheels and looking to upgrade the tires in a similar diameter very soon. I’m between the AT3Ws and Grabber ATXs. I’m thinking about upgrading to the RC 2” leveling struts.

I have the same Wildpeaks on two different Canyons that I have owned, and the KO2s on our Suburban. I would never by the KO2s they are ridiculously noise to the point it gives me a headache on long drives, where as the Wildpeaks only are only have a very slight noise at very low speeds ( less than 20km/hr) when turning, other wise they are almost silent.

Are you rubbing with the wild peaks? I too am considering going with some wild peak at3 but don’t know if there would a be a lot of rubbing I am putting a 2 inch RC leveling kit on my truck. By the way your truck looks really good!

Just installed a 1.25” level kit in the front and Falken Wild Peak AT3W 255/80R17. True 33” tire. No rub and they ride so much better than the stock duratracs.
Also removed the heat shield and was able to fit the new spare in the original spot with no issues.

I have the ko2's on my Colorado. They look fantastic but yeah, they are loud. Might get the wildpeaks next time.

I love the Wildpeaks. I had Hankook Dynapro ATMs on my 4Runner and the Wildpeaks are much more aggressive looking. But as quiet on the road as the stock tires. Took me awhile to sell the old tires, only got $200.

I have the slightest rubbing at full lock sometimes. Nothing I'm even slightly concerned about. I just bought the 1" RC pre-load spacer for $10 and was going to take it to 2" total. But the guy at the shop talked me out it, said it may be a tad high in the front afterwards and will definitely have a noticeable sag while towing. He thought it looked great as is. His phone had a level app and he showed me how the frame is almost perfectly level. It's the slope of the bed that tricks the eye. I'll sleep on it, but he may have saved me $300+ in labor.

Yeah, I didn't want a loud tire. That's why I waited for a High Elevation vs getting an AT4. And now that I have nice tires and blacked out the GMC emblems, I think it looks even better than an AT4.

Let me know about how yours sits after the 2". Maybe a pic too. I'm still not convinced 2" would be too much on mine. After the Zone 1", I'm still 1/2" and 3/4" short up front when measured at the wheel 8wells.

There are times I can clearly still see more rake than I want, and other times it looks perfect. I think in these two pics you can barely tell it still has rake. Bottom line, you can argue about 1" vs 2" but the stock rake sucks so at least 1" is a must!
