    How high do I need to lift my truck so the door window bottoms are 6 feet high? My blazer has been broken into twice now and now I am pissed. This time they destroyed the vent window frame. So anyways, what size lift and tires will I need. Also no cutting, to pretty of a paint job.

    Umm.... a lot. I can't imagine that would be street legal, either. There must be some other alternative. Alarms, booby traps, etc?

    Checked your Webshots... that is one fine Blazer you have!! Very nice! And were those goats in one of the pics? I used to have a little farm here /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif until I decided I'd rather do the truck thing exclusively /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    It has an alarm, so that is why I still have it. I am just mad that I finally have a really clean blazer, and people wont leave it alone. It is show quality with a 3 stage pearl white paint job. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    Man, I would hafta say 8" susp. + 3" body at the least. Add some big ass tires to that equation as well. Just takin' a shot in the dark....

    I leave my windows open all the time, all people have to do is look at the K5 and they realize theres nothing worth stealing. And mines nice.

    My K5 sits in the yard year around (because I am a looser non-wheeler these days) with the soft top removed - rain, snow, sleet and hail. It is never locked.

    My advice: Become a Hick, Move to the Country! "Aint got none of them there alarms". /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Start parking the Firebird outside and the K5 inside. It will be hard to find sympathy with soo many cool toys you have!

    if he parks the bird outside I will personally go smack him upside the head with a tire iron. Then break into his K5... Yeah nothing says "stay away" like a few motors, transmissions, and various piles of junk(few junk cars too) sitting around your home.

    Can't figger why, either.

    /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    Actually I worry more now that I have some goodies inside. However, with a soft top there is no good way to lock it. I'm just thankful to live in a town where there's not much crime. The local teens all think the truck is "cool", and they would be the ones to cause the trouble most of the time.

    The other Blazer, the one I worry about:

    Good luck with that. It's rotten that you even have to worry about it.

    That really blows.

    If you need any parts, I have a couple driver's doors and a passenger door for parts.

    Thanks on the offers of the doors, but my insurance company is covering it all under my glass coverage, so I dont have to pay /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif On another note, a buddy of mine thinks he knows who it is(stole his anp and subs), so I need a couple of parts of another projerct /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    I have 6 and 3 and 38s and my windows still probably aren't quite 6 feet off the ground. I'd say you'd need 12" and 44s to get it that high.

    I can see why they woulnt touch that thing /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif Anyways, everyone around me thinks my truck is cool, and I always get compliments on it, so I dont know why someone messed with it. My burb never got messed with in my area, but got stolen at a buddies house. I use to leave the windows down it the burb, not lock it, or sometimes leave the keys in it /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif
