    What year of K5? I have an 89, cut away maximum amount all around withoug disturbing body cross members supports. I did cut out some of the support behind the front fenders, then welded the inner fender back to it. All in all, I am pretty happy with mine. Check it out on members' rides.

    If you ain't hurt, you ain't playin' hard enough.

    With 7" lift you will not have to trim as much as you think.

    Start small, you can always take more off. It's hard as hell to put it back.

    Lift It, Lock It, LIVE IT!!!

    My friend ran 4+3 and 38.5s with no trimming and they hardly ever rubbed. You shouldn't have to trim much.
