    For off the shelf springs I like skyjacker softrides. They have worked well for me for general truck abusing.... mudding, trails, street. In the back do a shackle flip and either a 2" add-a-leave or a block.

    Can you tell us what drivetrain combo you have?
    engine/trans/t-case/axle ratio

Which i have a feeling that my fronts where too soft for the way i drove when i went wheeling and now thier beyond flat haha but yea i might just go back to soft b/c im thinking about stop wheeling for awhile since its the only truck i got

    Found this for sale in the classified section http://coloradok5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=173955

    I don't know the guy but it looks like it would suit your needs allright. Rancho's tend to be stiff and a 4" lift will clear 35's so you don't really need to go any higher.

    thanks i might use him as a last request i have been told that i shouldn't use blocks in the back. B/c one of my friends owns a 90 model 2-door Thaoe sitting on 37's TSL with a 6" lift no blocks man i could say that thing looks Good. but i haven't seen him much to get the info i need from him
