    So I'm in the market for a new truck. [haven't owned my own truck in 8 years now (Mothers hand me down s10, great first truck/car).]

    [First new Vehicle ever] I put some money down on a Canyon AT4, that being said. I am fully aware the AT4 is not the ZR2 everyone was hoping for. Its basicly the same capabilities/ trim as a chevy colorado LTZ with Z71 (a suspension package). I am having the dealer put on the baby leveling kit offered through GMC accessories.

    I am debating having the dealer install a complete lift kit, do I need it? No. Are there trails in my state to even go on? Not that I know of. Would I like it? Yes, yes I would.

    My questions are basicly, what would be going too far reasonably for a midsize truck of this caliber? And who makes the most comprehensive kits of good quality, so I can make it easier to talk the dealership into warranting the work/ parts installed as if it was OEM in their eyes.
    And at what point does lifting a vehicle start to effect its road manners and impede everyday use? I still want it to do well around town and the highway, lumber runs, haul my tools, etc. I've never owned a jeep but I've heard deathwobble horror stories that I can neither confirm or deny to be true.

    If the dealer is leveling it out...raising the front. I wouldn't mess with a lift, but that's me. :dunno:

    Welcome to the site! >I< would suggest leveling up the front (so it's more even with the back) and leave it at that for a start. If you decide you really want/need a full lift, you can research that on your own time and buy (rather than finance) the lift and either install it or have it installed.

    Congrats! Good luck! :cheers:
