    6" lift with 35's is a good looking combo IMO.

    Show us more.

    proportionally the 6" lift and 35's looks the best. And probably the cheapest too. Seems like the 35" tire has so many brands and models to choose from.

    what lift did you use? i have a set of 35x12.50 baja claws that i want to put on my new 72 but since this is my first k5 I am unsure of how to achieve the proper lift to clear them.

    Any 6" lift would be great for clearing those. Lots of people like Tuff Country - I run Skyjacker - Superlift is okay - whatever you can afford will work out great - oh and I see you are relatively new - welcome! :D

    thanks for the welcome and i can allready see that I am going to love it here. i have always had samurai's and tracker's as my offroaders but I am ready for some horsepower and since someone just gave me a 72 blazer I figured why not build a nasty rig out of it. I have a crate 475hp 406 on the way for it.:D

    well since i am new to these full size rigs I am unsure but I think I will keep the axels for now and swap gears with some lockers get a good lift on her and get it painted. it was given to me with no motor,trans or interior also no tailgate or top but hey the price was right FREE:D, i will be caging it and it will be used mostly as a trailrig but it will hit the road sometimes.

    you might think of swapping at least 3/4 ton running gear under it. Pretty easy swap and the strength you'll gane will be worth it plus gears are easier to setup in a 14FF and a detroit is only like $325 for it.

    yeah mostly bolt in on the front. Rear if a 3/4 ton will need to move the spring perches in an inch per side. I used ruff stuff perches and worked really nice. Also depending on the shaft you use might have to run a hermorphidite u-joint from 1310 to 1350

    thanks for the info, the rear is a 14 bolt so i will order up some perches when that time comes and as for the u joints I will be ordering all new shafts anyway.what t case is in this beast? its an auto with a small block.do you know what gears will be in the 3/4 ton gear, it is out of a 87 with a small block auto. thanks again for all your help. I hate being a newbie but if you ever have or know anyone that has a samurai or tracker then maybe I can return the help.

    hard to say what setup is in the truck. Pull the diff cover and on the edge of the ring gear you will see some numbers. the last couple numbers wil be like 41 10. Divide the numbers and 41 10 would be 4.10 gears, etc. Also make sure it is a 14 bolt full floater.
