    Just want to get some opinions should I get a 6" lift for my blazer for my 38 boggers or keep my 4".If I remove the 4" and go with the 6" ill put the 4" in my suburban since it has a 2" now.I currently have a 4" sus. lift with 2" body lift.

    I would think to run 38's you are going to need 6" minimum unless you are going to shave some sheet metal. Any less of a lift and you will be bendig sheetmetal with even a little suspension flex.

    It will mostly see mud and trails no rocks.I think ill go with the 6" lift and put the 4" in my sub.Im looking at the tuffcountry hd 6" springs for the front and dyi flip with 6" shackles and add a leaf will that give me 6" in rear.I dont really want to buy 2" springs for rear how else can I get 6" in back.Thanks:D Sandawgk5 thats a sweet blazer I just dont want to cut that much thanks for the pix.
