I'm a new TB owner and this is the first chevy I've owned in over a decade. My last 4 trucks have all been Ford Powerstrokes.

Coming from a lifted, deleted/tuned F250 to a 6.2l Trail Boss LT is a big change and I need a little help from you experts on making this truck fit me.

I'd like to add a little lift and the biggest tires I'd want to run would be 35s. My truck came with the 18" wheels and I actually like the look of them so I'd like to keep the wheels.

I've been eye balling the Rough Country 4" lift with the UCA add on. Any experience with these lifts? Is lifting the truck and going bigger on the tires going to void my warranty?

IMO it depends what you are going to use your truck for. Any serious off-roading I would stay away from Rough Country. Past experiences (another thread) would lead me away from the cheaper brands. If you want 35' with no issues go with BDS six inch lift. Might cost more, but the warranty is lifetime. I've had mine on now for over half a year and had no issues. Drives straight and I know I don't have to worry about broken suspensions parts. Just mu opinion.
 
I went with the BDS lift with Fox shocks, ride quality is actually better than stock in my opinion!!! Cost more than RC, but lifetime warranty and definitely better quality..

Did you buy the 4” bds lift package with fox shocks and coil overs? Where did you purchase it from? How much was it?

Yes I did, I love it and this was the cheapest and best place I found to buy from.. Correct it’s a 4 that equals 🟰 a 6 inch lift.. very fast shipping to…

I absolutely agree these trucks look totally awesome/badass lifted and with bigger tires. What confuses me though is why spend the money on a Trail Boss only to rip out all the Trail Boss components and go with aftermarket. Wouldn't it have been a lot cheaper just to buy a regular Silverado, black out the bumpers, grill and door handles yourself, then spend the cash on a lift kit? Wouldn't you have saved thousands of $$? After all, once you tear out the suspension components, the only thing left making it a Trail Boss is some blacked out parts and a sticker on the bed side, although many peel that off too.

I do think every Trail Boss could use wider tires. I have the original 20" rims and tires and they just look dinky. The matter was made worse when I put 1 1/2" spacers behind the wheels to fix GMs tucking tires under the wheel well too far problem.

To each his own. These trucks look badass lifted more than the factory 2" lift and when I see one going down the road I turn my head to get a better look. But I still think it's a bad financial decision to pay a premium for a lifted truck only to remove and discard the lifted components you paid a premium for.

Speaking of bad financial decision, I'm thinking of putting a super charger on mine. Looks like I can hit 650hp with a bolt on supercharger. Well then, who am I to preach. Let's jack up them TBs boys!!!! 😁😁😁😁😁
