    First you might want to fill out your profile so we know a little bit about you. Next you need to give us alot more info ie. what kind of wheeling do you do, do you like or dislike body lift's or shackle flip's. How much are you planning on spending. Are you willing to cut your fenders? If you give a little more info you'll get alot better replies. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    At 6 and 3 I was close. I just went up 2 more inches for a grand total of 11 inches and I dont think Ill have a problem w/ hitting now.

    Alot depends on if your willing to cut or not. Im at as tall as Ill ever be now. If I go 44s Ill break out the Sawzall. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I have pics of my Blazer at 9 inches and a few of it at 11 in my photo album if you want to take a look. Link is in my sig.
