I ordered a 2017 Denali 4x4 diesel. Stinking $49K list but I'll get about $4K off. RC is updating their lift, fixing some issues and it should be available very soon for the diesel. Zone is also talking about building a less extreme lift with some affordable reservoir shocks to boot. I'll decide which lift to go with once the truck arrives in January '17 but right now the RC 5" fits my needs and importantly, the right look for me.
I don't know if you noticed but the production Denali wheels look MUCH higher quality than the proto wheels that were shown. I just don't love 20s on a truck, but who am I kidding, I'm a mall crawler. I want my lifted truck for ski trips, muddy job sites, and dropping boats in the water. I don't intend to take it for any real offroading.
It's your truck, your money, so get it the way you want it. I'm with you. I like the look of a factory only slightly higher.
