    You sure about that because....you have to adjust your linkages on the tranny and t-case. Your bumbers sit lower and look stupid. Your steering shaft has to be extended. You're fan shroud won't line up right. The torque rods in the talgate may cause trouble. There's probably some various things I'm forgetting. The higher you go the bigger PIA it is. The body lift would be for you have a 6" suspension lift and to go higher.

    I got my 3" from Warns. They where allright and came with a pretty decent instruction manual.

    Dependent of how much salt your Blazer has seen installing a bodylift can be a weekend jobb or a 2 week jobb. I took some pictures while I was innstaling mine. They also show how I made brackets to raise the bumpers afterwords.

    They are at:
