    Before I start the other side, is this enough hackage for a 4" lift Blazer with 36/13.50 IROK's?

    Looks just right. Mine are trimmed the same way, I'm runnin 2.5 inches in the front and 4 in the rear, with 35x12.50, no rubbing to speak of.

    You MAY want to look at cutting the front about and inch under the side marker lights.

    Looks good to me, I'd find a rock or a concrete retaining wall to drive up and see if it touches.

    So, an inch horizontally below the lights, then angled down?

    you probably wont need to cut the rears
    just find a rock wall or a loading dock and flex it out and see what rubs and what doesnt thats the only way to know f you cut enough

    Doesnt look like enough to me. I am running 37's on appx. 5-6 inches of lift and I had to hack into my inner fenders. The rears on mine required a little as well. What are the specs on your lift to see how flexy it is?

    Flex it out to see if you need more trimming. I have a 4" lift and trimed quite a bit so my 36" swampers don't rub. I also trimed the rear fenders inner fangs cause the first time out with the new rubber it slit all the lugs on the rear tire. Take a look in my gallery theres a picuter of how I trimmed the front fenders.

    It's got a set of Rough Country :D springs in the front. The rear is Pro Comp :D springs and stock shackles. I know, I need work in that area too, but for now it's what I got. One thing I know is that it flexed enough in the front to break both shock mounts on the D44 because apparently my shocks are too short, even though they came with the front spring lift. Anyways, I've got a lot on my list left to buy and fix.

    Hopefully I'll get to the flexing next weekend. This weekend is devoted to finishing up the steering brace upgrades, I was just hacking while waiting for the welding.

    What do you mean by inner fender fangs?

    Here's a picture to show you what I'm talking about. It's all I have at the moment.
