I installed the 1.5" zone body lift. I had it installed by myself in a few hours. Very easy to install. Only issue I had was one body mount bolt is still broke in the body.
Update on the truck and life.
Right now I am having some OD shifting issues. Truck wont shift into 4th gear. Im going to be swapping out the 2 solenoids and pulling out the servo to clean in that area. I am wondering if the trans got some debris in the 2-3 servo and 4th gear hold servo when i changed the trans filter, pan and cooler. I hope this will fix it.
I wasnt able to take our planned Moab trip due to starting a new job soon. I hope to go next march, or sooner. I will keep updating this thread for my build.
Right now I have picked up a few other items waiting to be installed..High lift 48" extreme and some hi lift accesories, Midland 75-822 radio, winch bumper, front hellas, back up lights.
I will keep updating this thread for my build.

Fixed the OD issue! Changed both shift solenoids and stroked the servo a few times. I dont know if it was debris or what, but i have 4th gear. I will be swapping out the servo with the better "vette" servo in a coupel weeks. I hope to install the bumper at that time and take some more photos.
Hey nice truck, giving me ideas for mine. I have a 2002 Ex cab Z71 like yours in gray. So far I put a bigger transmission cooler, KYB steering stabilizer and did the suburban brake upgrade too it, I also have a set of GK torsion bars which should give me a bit of lift. Keep the pictures coming!
The SUV's have dual piston rear calipers, I believe. Also the 05' + have a large front brake setup but you must ahve a 17" wheel. The SUV brake upgrade is on my list. Google search " Silverado rear suv brakes" and "silverado budget brake ." Id post the link to the other site, but being that it is another forum, i am not sure if that is appropriate.
Nice truck and love the bumper!
Bumper looks awesome! Hope the Midland is treating you well
