    Hey, I’m on the hunt for a new suv coming from an 03 Denali with 300k miles. The reliability of this truck till it crapped out is what makes me want another one. I am trying to find threads on people who lifted the AWDs but the details are limited. Im not trying to do anything monsterous just want to a 3 to 4in lift with 33s 20x12 daily driver.
    Looking for a clean setup like Isidro’s Tahoe


    If it’s really not worth it I’m looking at a couple 06 Tahoe Z71s, just trying to figure out concrete information before I pull the trigger. Thanks in advance.

    No one in the infinite expertise can attempt to answer this? I’m open to all answers I just need to understand

    Not really the help you're looking for, I'm sure, but 06 Z71 ftw.

    Might see if BDS makes anything for it.

    the Custom Offsets gallery on their site will have thousands of pictures to get an idea of what wheels/tires/lift to run. From their youtube videos BDS is the best bang/bug ratio with Fox shocks. Not sure what models in the NBS era came with air suspension vs which ones didn't, but avoid it. I think Z71s didn't? Not sure.

    20x12s will speed up the wear life on front end components, AWD would not help the situation. A clean setup would be a stock vehicle leved with some nice ATs, and you’ll keep most of the GM longevity.
