Fuel Vector D579 in 20x9 +7
Falken Wildpeak AT3W in 275/60-20 (33" tall)

Moved the fender waffles forward by about 1" by drilling new holes under the bumper. This seemed much easier than the method of removing material from the back edge. I do have some minor rubbing through the turning range due to the .5" of Chevy Lean on the driver's side, but it seems good everywhere else. The sway bar and frame rub at full lock, but staying a 1/4 turn from lock keeps it happy.

I'm happy with the look although I would like maybe another inch of height in the front.

*Update*
Unfortunately the 60s are too tall and I have a rub I can't get rid of, so I will be dismounting them and putting on some 55 series tires. The 60s are 33" tall and the 55s are 32" tall.

I got my bracket back from anodize and was able to get it and the can installed today, I just need to find the time to get it plumbed in. So far I am happy with how it has turned out.

So did you spray the fog light chrome surrounds? I am thinking about tackling once warmer weather hits Ohio!
No, I took them off and wrapped them with black vinyl. I have seen others who have sprayed them with Plastidip, though.

Just installed the same rims on my truck in last few weeks and love this look. I did not go with 20's as was not ready to spend dollars on new tires yet. Plus the cost of the leveling and rims was enough for this month

Looks great and like the route you went! Have a '17 Canyon with the Baja UCAs, Kings front and rear, 1" rear block and putting those black Fuel Vectors in 17's with Wildpeak AT3's on today. Waiting to see any rubbing but should be ok went with 265/70/17's. Looking forward to seeing what you do in the power department - thanks for posting photos!

ZR2 Rock Sliders and Tonneau cover are on. For the time being I went with an inexpensive cover off of Amazon that had good reviews. It ended up being Tyger. I am happy with it so far.

It's been awhile since I've posted an update, but there wasn't much to post. (Until now..)


I have recently installed a Phoenix Android Radio in the truck. I am still messing with it to get it how I want it, but it has some nice features.


I've also installed my DSP4 switch in the center console in anticipation of putting my Hackman tune on there and installing a stainless Flo-Pro exhaust. Hopefully I can find the time to get this done soon.


Also, I will be picking up an ARE Z Series cap in the next couple weeks, so look for some updated pictures of all of this when it's done.

That Phoenix radio looks nice. Makes me want to get one. Did you install it yourself?

Thanks. Yes, I did the install. If you can run a screw driver then you can install the radio, it is not difficult at all.

Sounds good, I found the thread that is specifically about this unit. Definitely interested in getting one but will likely wait for more feedback from guys that have already got it.

Updated the original post and will try to get some better pictures up when I have time to wash the truck, but I scored a good deal on an ARE Z-series cap and finally got my Flo-Pro exhaust and tunes on. It's a completely different truck now.

Great looking truck! the wheel and tire setup are exactly what i want. couple questions
1. did the switch from the 60s to the 55s on the falkens eliminate the rubbing completely ?
2. and was the 2" level necessary t ogo to the 20s?

thanks
