    Hey, that's basically the same lift/tire setup that i plan to do too. Search the forums, and you will find an answer to your body lift question..it comes up about every week...about the tires, they will rub A LOT unless you trim. 39.5s with 6-7" lift will require lots of trimming. Even if you don't drive it offroad, they will rub a lot if you leave the fenders alone...Oh yeah, check out the august 2001 issue of 4wheel&off-road..there is a blazer in it with 4" lift nad 39.5s...the june 97 issue of FOURWHEELER had a blazer iwht 39.5s and 6" lift...good luck, and take pics

    Yes they're going to rub terribly. My 4" and 3" is just barely enough for 38s. 6" and 3" will clear 39.5s.

    I have 6 and 3 and I clear no prob. My fenders are trimmed, but not by me, the prev owner had 40's on it w/out the bodylift and trimmed some. I presently run 38 swampers on 12 inch wide wheels w/ no problems.

    <font color=purple> Go to Espen's site...he has a complete write up with pictures that shows the whole process. He's a real nice guy who'll help answer all your questions ! He even shows how to raise the bumpers.

    <font color=purple> I also plan on doing a 2" body lift in the near future and will be taking a ton of pictures so I can place them on my web page and help others on the subject.
