    3 inch lift with 33\'s

    Do yall think a 3 inch body lift with some 33's would make my 87 K-5 Blazer look that much bigger than stock or should I go with a 4 inch with 35's

    You should go with 4in and 35's cuz I mean... it's going to be big but after a while you're gunna get used to it and want biger and biger. So start big i guess lol. You might have to do a lil triming if you do any flexing or sharp turns

    You will need to trim, definitely.

    My tires rubbed with a 4" suspension and 35s.

    I have a 4" suspension and BFG AT 35's. They rub under high flex and if I hit a bump when turning sharply. It definately needs to be trimmed! Other than that, the gears should not be disregarded when lifting and going to bigger tires or you might end up putting more $$$ in that was planned. Just someting to consider before beefing up the tires...
