    Don\'t know what to do...

    I have a 6'inch on my k5 blazer right now. I'm wondering if it would be best to either buy a body lift or get an 8'inch lift? I want to clear 38 inch super swampers.

    <font color="green"> Buy a Sawzall. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif I cleared 38s for 2 years on a 6" lift with only very occasional rubbing. The rubbing I had was pretty minor, only when it was really twisted up with the wheels turned to the lock. </font color>

    trim fenders. I have 38.5s on my Burb with 4" lift. I cut the front fenders back 5", and trimed the rear out a little.
