    I want to fit 38" tires under it. So would that be a 6" or 8" lift. Let me know.:confused:

    I had 10" of lift with no trimming and 35's and still rubbed.

    You could fit the 38's with 6" if you hack the fenders with a sawz-all :hack:

    if you want to be able to flex... and not have to pay for new driveshafts or anything of that nature. i would throw a 6" suspension lift and a 2" body lift.. that will clear 38's yet flex is limited without trimming the fenders. but as well as streetability. you should be fine

    i have a 6"lift with 35"s up front and 36"s out back and i got no problem, well maybe because i just go in the dunes and mud, depends on what you'll use it for.

    ...

    This truck is going to go every where, moab, muddin, sand, I want it to flex!!! Fender thrimming sounds good to me. Also it's not going to be my daily driver. (that's what my blue 90' is for).... so far the 6" sounds good to me. :doah:

    x2. especially if you want flex. Ive got a 6inch on my truck and hate the flex and some other issues caused by too much lift. Ill be takin 2 to 3 inches off of mine soon.

    here is my non daily driver 86 blazer..

    6 inch bds up front with a 1 inch zero rate, rear is just a tad higher if any, its an old springer set up.

    38's and if I wanted I could have not trimmed with the wheel and tire combo I have since they stick in so much...:p:
