What's up crew - I'm Mike --

I've got a 2002 Crew Cab 4x4

Looking at Rough Country 2.5 lift kit (#242N2)

15x10 wheels w/ 3.75" backspace
33x12.5 Pro Comp A/T

OR

15x8 with 31x10.5.......... (probably more realistic)

Also had a custom rear bumper built and will be making a front soon and rock sliders and maybe a roof rack.

Looking for any advice, I've read some about the t-bar cranks and MML... not real clear on the MML though. Also would i need to extend brake linrs or anything if I go with the RC 2.5? And what about re-gearing?

Welcome!

Would be real interested in seeing what the rear bumper you fabbed up looks like.

As far as regearing on your crew, first I would check to see what gearing it came with stock. If 3.73 you could get away with leaving it with 31s and be alright. That is what the stock ZR2 trucks came with.

If your truck came with 3.42s you might want to drive it and see what you think. Might get into more downshifting on hills than you like. It'll also depend on it you tow much as well. 3.42s will leave the truck underpowered most likely.

Good luck with the project and check in with pics.
