Our 2011 Truck of the Year (and its GMC-branded sister pickup) can now be lifted thanks to Zone Offroad Products.

Zone Offroad's 5-inch suspension lift for the 2011 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra 2500HD/3500HD trucks with four-wheel drive includes all the parts needed for a reliable raise. For $1400, you get a pair of new crossmembers and CNC-machined steering knuckles which are supposed to help keep the revised suspension geometry as close to stock as possible.

Also included in the 5-inch lift kit are new torsion bar brackets for the front end, new anti-roll bar links to accommodate the added height, and 3-inch lift blocks for the leaf springs. Custom shocks at all corners help damp the ride while fresh stainless-steel brake lines and a differential skidplate with new support brackets round out the package.

Post-lift, the Silverado and Sierra HDs should be capable of clearing tires measuring up to 35 x 12.50 inches on 20-inch wheels. Spacers will likely be needed.
