Just purchased couple weeks ago and immediately dropped off to my alterations guy. Specs...
2022 RST Diesel
Wheels are Black Rhino Kunene 22" (offset 10, so it pokes about 3/4" more than stock wheels)
Stock tires
Ceramic coated (used local Ceramic Pro dealer) - this is a MUST for black vehicles IMO
tinted front driver and passenger windows to match back windows
tinted orange front fender blinkers
tinted taillights
Lowered 2" front and back using Belltech adjustable struts
Removed Tahoe badging from sides
Removed RST and Duramax badging from tailgate (left Tahoe badging under tailgate window)
Installed smoked black aero skin on leading edge of hood

Hey what’s the amount of rings did you use on the struts front and back ?

You can take a grinder to couple little welds that limit the turning radius. I did it and am happy with the results.

Really want some more companies to come out with a slight drop for the Denali with Mag ride/ no air ride, i think only one company (Maxtrac) does so far but not enough hard data behind the driving characteristics after the drop. Looks like only one guy here on this thread has the kit.

Looks great, how's the ride quality with the drop? You did the full 2" drop front and rear with the edgymods links? I was thinking of doing a 3/4 - 1" up front and 1.5 - 2" out back.

here's my wife's 2023 RST, 4wd, 5.3L lowered 2/3 using the Belltech Sport Performance adjustable strut kit. the ride is slightly rougher, but not anything worth writing home about.

Pictures of BellTech coilovers installed. Lowered approx 3 inches up front and 4.0 inches in the rear. Rides firm, but handles like it’s on rails. Part #15009 front and part #15013 for the rear. Super easy install overall, and nice to not have to mess with OEM strut/springs. Just rip and replace with the coilovers. View attachment 382006
Are you still able to mount curbs at this height? I often do some...urban offroading.
