    My son and I made a quick trip to a local creek bed to see if we trimmed the fenders enough, and take a few pics after we got the Sliders installed. The rear seemed to flex okay for 6" springs, and the front would have flexed a lot better if we had remember to pull the pins on the disconnects.

    That's the look I'm going for. Good job. The bio says 6" lift, is that all spring or blocks in the back. Nice flex, what shocks are you running? I just bought a Blazer with eight Rancho 5000s. It's beating me to death, need to change them. The 37"s look great and they seem to clear with your trimming. Can you help me with a pattern or pictures to see how much I should cut to get them under my truck? Thanks

    Rebel, I did pull the moldings off, and to my surprise the paint underneath was in perfect shape.

    Horsepit, I am running 9012's in the rear and 9005's in the front. I would recommend losing about 4 of the 5000's. I ran 4 with my 4" lift and they are a little harsh. The 6" and the new shocks ride 100% better.
