Here is info on how it works.

I'm currently using the Diablo 93 Octane tune (This is one of a few tunes built into the tuner) and only mod I added so far was for the larger tires. I plan on getting the truck Dyno tuned after I finish the exhaust.

Supposed to add 15 HP and also changes the shift points.
Sounds really interesting, I'll be checking it out - thanks!

I believe it would be for both as you say. There features vary on 2011 to 2014 as well so it is probably a compromise across the different models and then years available. Another posibillity is the overall design and appearance. Even bottom clearance front to back, the lower profile windows and sloping roof are kind of characteristic for the MFG and time period.

Re: RRO leveling kit give a proper stance?

I checked with RRO and they state that its impossible to make the leveling kit shorter due to the gap between the factory strut bolts and the bottom of the top portion of the spacer itself. I measured my 2015 GC Altitude and there is only about 1.5 inch difference between the front and rear. I'm certain that this would give me a 'nose up' look. I wish there was a 1/2 or 3/4 spring lift in the back available to use with the leveling kit. Any ideas?

It is possible to cut/modify the spacers (in a lift kit ) on the rear to do less of a lift there & overall lift & level it....

There are a few of us here with that setup who've taken photos for example.

Here's mine:

Re: RRO leveling kit give a proper stance?

Damn, I like that combo. Are you running factory shocks on the back with that? I would imagine that you would lose a lot of re-bound with that setup. Anyone running these spacers in the rear with the factory nivomat shocks?
