    Finally decided to join the site and looking to do some mods asap. I bought a 2013 Barcelona red DCSB 6 Speed 4x4 sports package and i'm loving it. Sucks on gas though. Im confused on getting my lift. Im looking to do the Procomp but i noticed some have rear blocks (k5081b) and some have add-a-leaf rear (k5075b). I tried doing to searches but still a little lost on what's better. I don't think the 2013 changed from the 2012

    Hey welcome to TW :D about the lift, a lot of guys are going to tell you to stay away from pro comp, some say the ride is too stiff, some say its just bad quality, but you get what you pay for. Another thing to consider, are you looking at their spacer lift or coil/shock lift? Biggest thing here is to avoid spacers whenever possible, they can cause problems fast and are overall not a good idea. Same idea in the back, go with the add a leaf. Blocks can lead to damage and problems like axle wrap. An extra leaf will stiffen the ride a bit and reduces sag when towing. It would also help to know your budget and what you plan on doing with the truck if you want better more detailed suggestions.

    Thanks for the help. Yea, I was looking at the shock and coilover package. It's mostly just for looks with rare occasional offroading. I'd just like to know I can do it if the opportunity came up and also fitting a 285/70/17 tire.

    You will have to trim a bit for 285s but plenty of guys on here run them with 3 inches of lift.
