    Got a few minor mods done to the truck (window tint, floor mats, new grille, new front bumper, blacked out rear bumper and badges, tonneau, etc.), now wouldn't mind looking into leveling it. What is the general rule for leveling a 2016 CM? 2"? All I'm after is level and no lift. Also, what is the biggest tire size I can go on the stock rims (18") without any rubbing? Not looking for anything to really stick out on the sides either, basically just a level with larger tires to fill in the wheel wells and provide a more custom look. Gotta keep it fairly conservative, my garage door is not very tall and I haul the kids around in this thing too........

    Great looking truck! Tastefully modded so far. Cant wait to see the tires!

    Look into Bilstein 5100's for the front struts - adjustable and I think fully open (about 2.5") it gets it pretty level.

    having owned both, a good way to go for reasonably cheap would be bilstein 5100's, better still would be to go with 6112's. you could go with spacers like 90% of the trucks you see jacked up on the road but i can't in good conscience recommend that and would never go that way myself.

    Bilsteins mid to top setting and 275/70r18 would set you up nicely. 295/70's would be too stuffed in IMO and sketchy with stock rims.

    Like @PlatinumPro said, you could go the spacer lift, but not advisable. Do it right the first way unlike the idiot writing this post. :censored::censored::censored:
