    No trimming, 6" lift. Minor trimming, you could probably get away with 4". 2.5" of lift or no lift if you are good buddies with your sawzall /forums/images/graemlins/hack.gif /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif

    I like the way that rjfguitar's blazer looks, I'm not into fender trimming on shiny stuff. My old junk gets sawzall'ed to whatever extent is necessary to fit the tires that I have.

    On my K20 I have 9" of lift (6 susp. and 3 body) with no fender trimming running 36" swampers and the last time I was out in the mud the tire mashed the fender pretty hard.
