    Are there prefrabricated front fenders for a 1975 blazer to accomodate 35" tires. The truck has been lifted 6 inches and I don't want to make it any higher with a body lift. With the 35" tires there is no problem driving on paved road. I am really concernced about off-road driving as it is very likely that the fender will rub against the tire when I start having some fun.

    I wouldn't worry about it . I have 35's and 4 inches . NO rubbing at all with a stock 15x8 rim .

    I got a friend with 6" and 35's on his 84 blazer and rubs..

    No one makes precut fenders, but its very easy to use a cutoff wheel and trim where needed. Dont havew to cut as severe as i did on mine below, but you get an idea.
