    i cranked my t bars up on my 2500hd. definitely helps during plow season with front end height, but your going to lose the ride quality. cracks in the road felt like small potholes, bumps felt like i was running over cinder blocks, and so on. made me crazy. my advice is to go with the leveling kit.

    I have the same truck w/285's also. My tires rub a little too, I did a little trimming and it got much better.

    looks more like 2-3 inches of squat. unless the newer chevys are always raked out like a drag car.

    Looks great. Why did you only go with a 7.5'?

    I went with the 7.5 because i was on a budget and it was in great shape so i realy couldnt pass it up. Even without the plow on it the front seams like it is always squatting pretty low I dont know if this is typical of the year or what not but seeing these pictures realy makes me relize how bad i gotta get that front end up. I also have a custom black bear tune on the way so that should help move some snow around. Also looking for some towing mirrors not a big fan of the small ones on my truck now. Would like the OEM ones with the turn signals any suggestions?

    you'll wish you got an 8' for that. Look on CL for just a blade. You should be able to find one for around $400. Nice truck.
