    How much lift for 37\" tires

    How much lift do I need to clear 37"x12.5x17 BFG Mud Terrains on my 72 K5? Without trimming my fenders

    I plan to use a 17x10 or 17x8 inch wheel...

    If I were you I'd do an 8" lift!

    I've got skyjacker softride 6" front/8" rear springs.
    My 35x12.50x15 BFG muds just barely rubbed in the front.
    I replaced all the body mounts and went with a 1" ORD body lift and it doesn't rub anymore. Now i could probally put some 37's under there with just minor rubbing issues up front again. I'm gonna bite the bullet and trim a little bit when i go bigger.

    If I remember right (one of your guys told me this once), your gonna want roughly 8-inches of lift.... a 6 inch with a 2" body might work also.
