You all know the scenario: Your new truck looks just like the one down the block and you want a little extra something for your weekend hauler. Bulletproof's new 8-inch kit was the thing to fix that problem on this '07 Silverado 4WD. Its kit is a little taller than the typical 6-inch kit, but it also looked very solid. We hauled the truck full of Bulletproof Suspension parts to 714 Motorsports in Westminster, California, along with an intake and exhaust from Volant and some brand-new rolling stock from Toyo Tires and RBP. Check out the install as the crew at 714 Motorsports got the truck in and out of the shop in one day.

From the Driver Seat
The guys at 714 Motorsports were very happy with how easily the Bulletproof kit went on. Since the suspension cage is one piece, there's no room for error. If it hadn't been a perfect fit, there would have been no way to adjust it. Thankfully, the welding jigs that Bulletproof uses are true to the Chevy's mounting points. The coilover drop bracket kept the price of the lift reasonable, but didn't allow for adjustment like the Fox Racing Shox coilover. On the other hand, it did save us more than $1,300. The 8 inches of lift allowed us to fit a tire that's truly 35 inches tall, all without rubbing. As for the Volant pieces, their installation couldn't have been any easier. Chevy 5.3L V-8s always sound better with a little better breathing, and the parts from Volant did the trick. Amp Research power boards were also added, but not included in this install.
