    I don't how much lift, but that was a Ramcharger in the 37" Bogger article! Looks like a bit of fender trimming...

    It might just be me, but I don't think this is a ramcharger...

    I think Kpanza is talking about the article in the 4wheel mag and not the one on this site.

    I thought I was wrong once,
    but I was mistaken

    The K5 on the cover is running 39.5 Swampers on a 4" lift.
    The Ramcharger on the 37" Boggers had a 6" lift.

    my truck's not dirty, it's earth tone paint

    Yeah the Blazer with the 39.5" Swampers looks like it has 4" lift springs, extended front shackles and a 1/2" thick plate between the spring and spring perch. This in additon to the higher spring perch of the Dana 60 is more like 6" of lift on a 1/2 ton axle equipped K5. This and the sawzall is plenty of room for 39.5" Swampers.
