Hey all, I did some research but just wanted to confirm with this knowledgeable group of humans! I am seeing (from messages in this forum) that a stock 2023 LT TB has a 2 inch rake...can anyone confirm that? THANKS!
 
The TB has a 2in lift over a standard Silverado 4wd. The Trail Boss and a regular Z51 Silverado will normally sit about an inch high in the rear to accommodate for a load.
 
thi is a 1.75" front only lift ( level) and the truck sits dead flat at the rockers. the ground is slightly sloped, but you can see the intent. i hope to be fully done correcting the paint and coating by Sat. morning. if the weather is nice...i will have way more, better pics

THANKS A TON! So I am hearing 1 inch and 1.75 inches....I also reached out to my dealer to see if they know.

I am of course trying to google this but cannot find a definitive number thus far. If anyone knows for sure or can provide a link I would greatly appreciate it!
 
Reverse level is also an option. A lot easier if you just want a level truck (just switch out rear blocks). I would only end up doing it if I bought some timbrens to help out with load. Leveled trucks look stupid if you actually, you know, put something in the bed.

you will never get a static number answer. NOT EVERY TRUCK is the same. my suggestion in your case, is to look for a level kit that has adjustability.
some have top shims rather than a static spacer, or do a 1" top and play with the lower (easy to install) once you decide...align and enjoy.

bellybuttons... i love my leveled truck and it rarely has anything in it. the utility trailer sees most of the larger items.
 
Thanks again for the advice. One final question, is there an accurate way to measure this myself? From "top of the tire tread" to the "top of the wheel well" on front and back and the difference would be the rake?

Otherwise, great advice and info per usual, I greatly appreciate it!

Use a level on the truck bed or on the truck frame to determine if it is level
 
EYEBALL it to your liking.
But the bed rail or rocker is the best bet.

that stance is perrrrrrfect!!! do you have a wider track and larger tires? looking to level out, widen from +25 to -12 but keep tire and rim size. just worried about potential rubbing.
 
so my track is wider due to the wheel offset. and a slightly wider tire
