    Hello everyone I'm posting pics of my New old blazer! I just finished adding some lift (8" front springs, 4"rear springs and 4" blocks) Origanally had just 4"lift with alot of fender cutting.I also added a Dana 60 and 4.88 gears allaround. 44" Monstermudders on 10" rims carry me through the rough stuff.

    Looks like you got a lot more clearance but do you think you'll still rub?

    Oh and I envy that trailer :laugh:

    I don't think its gonna rub at all( I hope!) . That trailer was way overkill, it weighed more than my blazer and it was a b!tch to stop (NO trailer brakes!).

    Yes it was a 82 K5 with broken rear springs !! But now I have 77 K20 with a 2 yearold 16ft car trailer with trailer brakes. This truck and trailer combo pulls like a dream and I can stop it too!
