    35\'s 6in suspension and 3in body how would it look???

    I have a 1990 Chevorloet K5 with a 6in suspension lift and 35 in ssr's when I go out on the trails I tend to rub a little. I am also a little worried about looks. I was thinking of putting a 3in body on but would that make my 35's look small? They fill up the fenderwells real good now. I was just wondering on some opinions or pics that anyone may have.

    I think it would look real nice. Give you enough room to put bigger tires also. /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    I have 6 "and 3" with 39.5. Might want to start saving for bigger meats.

    I have 5 inches front, 6 inches rear 1 inch body and trimming at the back ofthe front fenders. BFG KM 35's on 15x10 rock crawlers with 4 inches of back spacing. No scrub, inner fender in stock location. I used a set of 1 inch Zero rates on the front and offset the axle forward one inch to make it work. www.offroaddesign.com can hook you up with them. If your running all spring in the back with no block then just order two kits and to keep it even. if your running blocks in the back you could proably pull one leaf out of the front pack and even out to the 6 inches with the Zero Rates.

    I've got 6" suspension 3" body. Check out my pics to see the fit. The earlier pics are with 36s and the most recent with 38s. It will give you plenty of room. I can stuff the 38s into the fenders without them rubbing.
