    Well just so you guys know they don't hit anywhere we have flexed it out on a ramp on some ruts etc. the leafs are on the bumps in the front and there is plenty of room even with the wheel turned. In the rear it amazes me how much room there is they are on stock wheels so they tuck into the wheelwells not much uptravel on a stock blazer and yes we have flexed it with the swaybar removed it doesn't hit. Only been wheeling with it once but that involved throttle bombing through some deep snow ruts that were frozen. Just for kicks and giggles I hit a curb going about 10 mph to see if I could get the front tire to hit so I could trim more, it doesn't.

    It shouldn't hit anywhere. I run 37 x 12.5 15s on my stock 90. The only modification is fiberglass front fenders that are comparable to the trimming he has done. It has been wheeled hard, jumped and crossed up on several occasions. The rear clears just fine, in stock form.

    Not too hijack, but where did you get the fiberglass fenders?

    Looks good. When I first bought my K10, it was all stock. I didn't have any money left after buying it, but I managed to roll enough change for some used 36x12.50 TSL/SXs. I gave $15 for them...boy were they used. The ones I put on the front you could see where the tread used to be. The ones I ran on back only had tread left on the sidewalls. I trimmed the front fenders some in front of the tires. I was running stock 15x7 alminum bullet hole wheels and it only rubbed in the rear when it really flexed. That's where the SX sidewalls helped me out.

    If they dont rub then thats awesome. I guess you got luckier than me. I put 37's on mine with a 6" lift and they still rubbed. Not only on the inner fender wells, but from front to back they would hit the fender if I would pull in or out of my driveway.
