    I have a 90' Big Boy Blazer with 38s as my fun toy, but a 85' stock as my everyday driver. i want to know the easiest way to put a 3 inch lift without buying a lift kit or a body lift. i have a warn classic bumper with a winch so if i get a body lift it will look stupid right? or is there some way to fix that. add-a-leafs only come in 2 and 2 1/2 i think. if i can find a 3 inch suspension lift i will probably do that. but if yall have any good ideas, please tell me. i want to run 35's . on road only so dont have to worry about flexin. Thanks, Cameron

    You don't want to go cheap when your messing with your trucks center of gravity. I don't really like body lifts, but that would be the easiest and least expensive.

    Even without flexin, are you sure you can run 35's with just a 3" lift? I think a 4" lift and fender trimming would be necessary for 35's. I know that with a 4" lift my '90 Jimmy wouldn't clear 35's without the aid of a sawzall.
