Boosting Your Late-Model GM

If you haven't noticed yet, this issue is chock-full of all kinds of budget lifts. We know it's a tough economy so we're doing what we can to help you find bargains to get your truck performing better off-road. We found another great deal through Rough Country, a 2-inch leveling kit for the Chevy/GMC 4WD 1500 pickup that retails for under $200.

The kit consists of torsion keys, rear lift blocks, and shocks, and will raise your GM truck 2 inches so you can stuff larger tires underneath. This will give the rig the ground clearance it needs for more capable off-road performance.

We turned to the experts at T&J Performance Center in Orange, California, for assistance with the lift on our '05 GMC 1500 Chevy. T&Js technicians knocked this install out in a little over an hour. If you're more of a driveway installer, it should take about the same amount of time as long as you have the tools.
