Going On A Ride Through Rough Country: Total Auto Pros Takes a Different Approach to Lifting the New 2014 GM Trucks

Harley CamilleriMar 26, 2014
If the adage, “There’s more than one way to skin a cat” ever held true, it’s in the truck and SUV aftermarket. With so many choices for every part you might want or need, it can get quite confusing to the consumer. Suspension systems are definitely deep with options so we dig through them all to showcase everything from mild to wild. We do our best to show you a little bit of everything to help spotlight the different approaches manufacturers take to lifting and lowering your ride.
Total Auto Pros checked in with us about the new ’14 Silverado and Sierra lift kits from Rough Country suspension. The Rough Country 7-inch lift system embraces GM’s suspension geometry and is designed to retain the stock track width. This allows your truck to clear 35-inch tires with an extensive choice of aftermarket wheel offsets that will fit. Rough Country’s lift takes a different approach to creating an aggressive stance for the ’14 trucks, so in this article we’ll hit the highlights for you. Capping off the new ride height, 20-inch BMF R.E.P.R. wheels were bolted on with 35-inch Toyo Open Country M/T tires. A black truck with black wheels is nothing new, but with BMF’s milled designs and accents, the R.E.P.R. is the perfect addition to the ’14 Chevy’s new sheetmetal.
