    you could do 6" and 38s... its been done.. but you would have to trim... there's guys on here with 4" and 38s... lots of trimming.. only question is "how much do you like your body"

    I have 5" of lift plus trimming and 39.5s... no reason why you cant fit 38s with 6" + even less trimmin that this...

    5" lift + trim + 39.5s

    Re: lift q\'s

    ok, pics posted in my pre-BB buildup album on webshots (link in my sig)... should be the last 3 pics in that album. I did one overall from the side pic like you asked, but its hard to see how much I trimmed because of the lack of contrast. At any rate, I took 2 closer up ones, one of each fender, hopefully they will make things a lil more clear. Like most ck5'ers I will prolly trim more in the future. At this point though, without removing the inner fenderwells entirely, there isn't much point in further trimming...
