I recommend doing a spindle lift whatever kind of lift you go with. BDS and Cognito are both spindle lifts and best for GM/Chevy. Cognito 4-6" will clear 35's with a fender mod, same with BDS 4.5" kit. Those kits will clear 35's for your 2007.5. If your just looking to lvl it, go with Cognito UCA level kit. Quality comes with a price and with a HD truck its worth it.
IMO rancho and rough country are junk, some have good luck with them, others don't. I'm one of those that have seen nothing but problems from those brands.

OK, now don't laugh..... Yes that is a pic of a 2008 Tahoe Hybrid..... Bought it this year with only 8,000 miles on it. I am originally from Texas so I was embarrassed as hell driving this thing after trading in my '07 Avalanche for something with third row seating..... Made that decision after having to drive two cars to get everyone to the lake. However the reason I bought this one was that all the "SUV" vehicles I test drove (took the boat with me to the dealer for tow tests) this one towed better than my Avalanche and the others with the 5.3L and got better mileage while doing it. I couldn't beleive it, but it has a full sized 6.0L V8 along with the electric motor. I still can't believe how well it tows. I have averaged 16mpg towing at 65mph. Anyway just wanted to share.

08- I like it! The Touareg doesn't get the greatest gas mileage so I am all about saving in that dept. 16 on the hwy while towing is fantastic. I believe mine gets around 10-11 while towing on the hwy. But then again, it only gets about 18 on the hwy to begin with.
Zegm is getting better gas mileage in his diesel though.-Mark

my truck claims it gets 10 mpg while towing on the hwy but i think it is lying 25 gallon tank x 10 mpg = 250 mile range. i barely get 200 miles per tank. it also says i get 19 on the hwy not towing but everything im manually calculate it at the pump its more like 16-17David

I was trying to find a diesel that had third row seats and was big enough to tow, but no luck. They don't make the Ford Excursion or anything like it anymore. The only other problem with diesel in NORCAL is the price. Gas here is around here is about $3.80 per gallon and diesel runs just over a dollar more about $4.86 and most stations don's even carry it.
