    It's about time to start one.

    Rules

    1. Post pics on level ground, suspension at ride height

    2. If you have a flex shot showing clearences, post if you feel inclined.

    3. Any lift is ok, just post what it it (shackle flip, blocks, springs, zero rate, longer shackle...)

    4. Post tire/wheel info aswell (wheel width/backspacing if you have it)

    5. Members please link your pics from the photo gallery so all can see:D

    Ok not a Blazer but same deal. 4in Tuff Country lift, 3in body lift on 35in BFG All Terrains. I could go bigger on the tires, but I don't want to have to get bigger axels.

    Stats: 4" rancho front springs(well broke in) rear 4" block. 36X12.5R16 TSL Radials on ford rims... This combo requires fender triming. not much but some. at full fles with the tires turned completely srtaight they will not touch the fenders, however if they are turned even slightly they will hit the rear lip of the front fenders. in the fist pic the tires are turned slightly to the right giving a false look at fender to tire clearance but still showing the stance. In the second pic you can see that they are close VERY close. I have not trimed my fenders yet so i rub when i hit driveways and mall entrances. well blah blah blah heres the pics.

    Both of these pics are with the same 10" lift (Dodge lift springs and custom mounts) one with 38" TSL radails the other with 39.5 Iroks, the trim is to fit the flex. Front axle is 5" forward, rear is 3" back

    Top is..... 4" lift with 2" body and overload springs in the rear, sitting on 36"x12.5" swampers on 15" x 10" rims.

    Bottom is....... Same lift with no overload springs (saggy but) on 36" x 14.5" PJ Dirt Grips on 16" x 10" wheels

    For the STREET I needed to cut the corners off the bottom edges and remove the front mud flaps with the 14.5" tires.
    I am gonna do some major trimming here pretty soon so I can play.

    Keep in mind width and back spacing play a huge part in if a tire will fit. Just turn your tires and look at the clearances and imagine adding inches to the width. I could get away with taller tires if I got them skinny and mounted them on thin wheels.
