    heres a pic of my rig with 4" springs, shack flip, zero rates, 1" body lift and 35s...
    35s

    and here is the same rig with the same suspension on 39.5 TSLs...
    39.5s

    37s would be somewhere in the middle. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    cool thanks. The 39.5 look a little bigger than i want, and i want 35's but they arent usually true so a 37 i think will be just what the doctor ordered. nice lookin rig. i like the dirty pic better. it looks better in its naturaul enviroment.

    Re: 37\'s and a 6\" lift

    You forgot "sheetmetal trimming" to add to that list. At least some of the areas prone to bite the tires.

    I have 6" front/8" rear springs and 35's and I can get the tires to hit at the limits of my suspension

    nice blazer! that looks like what i want to do to mine. how true did your tires measure mounted up?

    I am trying not to cut my baby. i may have to but it will be minimal. i dont rockcrawl so i rarely compress my suspension. maybe i can get away with it.

    thanks

    They are True 36's parnelli Jones makes them. I didn't do any trimming. I get a little rubbing with compression and full turning. My lift is BDS so I think I got a little more than 4 inches out of it.
