    could some of you post pics of your K5 w/ a 2" lift and 33's. ALSO, does the 2" lift change the drive characteristics of your truck. I have a '90 K5, all original, drives perfect. I have no problem setting the cruise at 70+ MPH and cruising down the interstate. I want to lift the truck 2" but I don't want my driving characteristics to suffer. Thanks for the help.

    This is my 1987 K5 with 2.5" and 33's. Sorry for the not so great pic. Just getting a picture with the top off last summer. (since it never comes off)

    Mine's the yellow truck, 2.5" Superlift & 33" Dunlops. The middle one is firefighter184's and he has 3" front, 4" rear with 33s; and the truck on the right is B_to_C's with 5" lift and 35s.

    I've been able to run 75-80mph on the interstate in the mountains. The only thing I notice is that there is a little more body lean in the corners, so I don't push it much over the recommended speeds for curves.

    I've had mine this way for over 5 years and have had no driveability problems.
