Got my Rebel back from the shop after getting the RC 5" lift kit and AFE shorties installed. I haven't had a chance to drive it due to recovery from a ruptured Achilles--unfortunately, I have to wait another week until I can put weight on my left foot. So I don't have anything to report yet on performance gains with the shorties or how it rides. I do think it sits a bit higher than I want due to having leveling links installed on both the front and rear. When I'm able to, I'm going to lengthen the front links back to factory specs (82mm) and shorten the rear just enough so that it sits almost level. I'm thinking those adjustments should knock about 1.5" off its current height.
Hmm, can't see the shorties in any of those pics, so did it really happen? ;)

Did you post pics of your truck after the reverse level? I can’t seem to find any.

Thanks for posting that. Great looking wheels! Is it pretty level, or is the rear lower than the front? (Can’t tell from the angle of the truck)

Also, looks like those wheels are somewhere between -10 and -20 offset from what I can tell. Did that affect your gas mileage any? I guess I should ask the tire size also.

I’m just full of questions today

They were off my Silverado. 20x10 hostile havoc, -19 offset. 295/55/20 Toto open country tires.

Mpg went down a little, they stick out a little, no rub.

The rear is about .5in taller than the front

Got my tires in... Two weeks ahead of estimated Backordered ship date. Definitely more aggressive than they look online. 2wd, stock size.

Install Saturday!

Put 1" Motofab rear spacers in. Left factory shocks, seems to ride the same. I have bilstein 5100's set at 5 and it looked nose high sometimes even though it still had a 1/8" rake now has 1". I have 285/45/22 falken at3w's on it now. Would like to upgrade to 285/55/22 Nitto Terra Grappler G2's or Toyo at3. Any thoughts on ride comfort between the two? How much will the ride suffer compared to these which are p rated vs the LT's? Thought having more sidewall might counteract the stiffer tire?

as long as you can put weight on the right foot, you're good to toy around! haha heal up soon man!
