    fitting 33\" tires

    Does anybody know what brand a 33" tire would fit on a stock 71 blazer? I'm thinking of putting on 2in leafs in all the corners. What does all this envolve? longer shafts? dropped transmission support, longer shocks, i need all the details. If i do this what would be the biggest tire i could put on?

    With a 2 inch lift there would need to be no modifications to the drive line and such. You can put on any 33 inch tire but it depends on the backspacing (less the better). You can fit up to 37 inch tires probaly but it would take Serious trimming [​IMG]

    I can't wait til you get a Blazer young grasshopper! It looks like you've learned a ton here and will probably avoid the many mistakes and pitfalls most of us have had to live with...
