    I'm looking for pictures of Blazers on 6 inches of lift with either 37x12.50 or 38x12.50 tires. I tried that gallery but got tired of trying to guess how much lift was on each truck /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    That's my plans also. 37's with 6" lift front/7" lift rear, and some fender trimming. So I'd also like to see some pics.

    Thats nice looking. Now I'm getting really excited about ordering my suspension parts and lifiting it. I'm going with an Echobit flip in the rear with an ORD zero rate, and Tuff Country 6" front springs.

    Since that pic was taken, we have added 1" zero rates, and a 1" body lift, the 37's are starting to look a little small. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    I'm figuring about 670 for parts, hopefully my rear springs arn't sagged too much in the back so I won't have to buy new ones. How much does it generally cost to get the stock shafts lengtened?

    I haven't decided my front springs yet but I am going with a homemade flip out back and zero rate, combined with the heavy duty rear springs I have now this should be 6-6.5" of lift. I think I am going to get 6" superlift kit, and just use the steering arm and springs. Some procomp braded stainless lines too. All in all I am expecting/hoping to come in under 450 before shipping.

    I'm liking the 4" and 37s. How much fenderwell rub do you have? how about the rear tubs? Wow your truck is exactly how I want mine to be except the slushbox.

    yes but, gearing and inner fender wells are an issue, I run mud a lot so I need those inner fenderwells and can't afford spending the cash on that regear job, as well as can't afford the tires /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif.

    Yes, 42s would be nice, but wider wheels, biggers axles and lower gearing are not in the immediate budget /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif Heres what the 37s will be going on. I've already cut the fenders. All I need is the lift now. [​IMG] /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Yeah I hear you guys on the money, I rolled on 3/4 ton and 38's for a couple years while I saved my pennies to go bigger. I just wanted to show you guys that you can stuff a lot of tire under a 6" lift /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
