    6\" w/ 38\"s

    I need to see a pic of a K5 (or truck) with a 6" lift and 38"s. I need to see if much fender trimming was required or if you could get by with just a little. All help is appreciated [​IMG].

    Go to http://jeremyb.coloradok5.com Go to the photos page and you will see my old red truck. It has a three inch body lift and a 6 inch lift suspesion lift. But, before I put on the body lift I had to trim the front fenders slightly. You can see the front fenders trimmed in the picture. It had on 38.8" x 16" wide on a 15 inch rim.

    Zepplin,
    Did it rub much when you just slightly trimmed the fenders? I don't do a lot of crawling around here.. mainly just mud and trails. However I do try to flex a little bit.

    Hi.I run a 6 inch lift with 38x12 swampers.The rear should clear fine i have mine trimed because of rust.In the front you'll have too trim the rear of the fender alot if you flex it up.
