    Without cutting the finders, atleast 8" or more.

    I'm gonna try for 38's on a 6" lift....but most of the guys who I've seen so far use an 8" lift in front, and 10" in the back. That seems to sit pretty level for the Blazers.

    You might try PM'ing tmanofcali.....he's got that setup, maybe he can e-mail you a couple pics for reference????

    might want to try a 6inch susp and 2inch body with and zero rate add aleaf in the front and a shakle flip with 4 inch in the back. look at my sight with 38's with 4 and 2 and zero rate with very slight triming of the front fenders
