    Okay, I know I want to run 35's on my 76 Blazer. I also know I'll need a 6" lift. Should it be a 6" supension lift, or a 4" supension and 2" body lift ??? Does either effect the way it handles ??? I don't plan on much rock crawling. I'm more into mudding. I also want to do some exploring on some old trails. Want to go check out some old goast towns by the old gold mines up inn the Black Hills.

    You should be able to fit 35''s with 4'' of lift if you don't plan on doing much crawlin. If later on you decide that they are a little tight in the wheel wells you could always trim the fenders or add a 2'' or even a 3'' body lift. Go with the 4'' now and see how it works for you, it may be all you need.

    my 35x12.50's rub with the 4" lift. I will be getting a 6" suspension lift all the way around. no blocks, better articulation, which is better even if you don't hit the rocks.
