With the struggling economy and relatively high fuel prices, a lot of HD truck enthusiasts have been dialing down their original plans for giant lifts and monster tires. We're seeing many more sensible 3- or 4-inch lifts with 33- or 35-inch tires, and the bottom line is that these trucks look great and most definitely perform better than the teeter-totter rigs that are falling out of favor. We wanted to see what a 3-inch lift kit and 33-inch tires would do for a Chevy Silverado 2500HD, so we turned to Skyjacker Suspensions.

Skyjacker is a company that's committed to serious off-roading. Since the company's pioneering days in the early '70s, Skyjacker's field-proven expertise is suspension systems: lift kits and systems along with all the necessary components and accessories needed. Skyjacker likes to say that throughout the company's 35-plus-year history it has never backed down from its dedication to the pure passion of off-roading and never will. Located in West Monroe, Louisiana, Skyjacker is proud of the fact that it constantly tests its products in the harshest terrain.

So it was an easy decision to select a Skyjacker lift kit that included Nitro shocks and add in some Jesse James wheels and BFGoodrich tires. Take a look at how the lift kit is installed.
