    I want to lift my jimmy but I cant decide how high to go. I would like to stay with 33" or 35" tires. Would a 4" lift accomidate these? What mods are needed for a 4" lift other than the steering arm? I want to do this as cheep as possible, but I wont settle for a body lift, or cut my fenders.
    Thanks

    I have a 88K5 with a 4" springs in the front, shackle flip in the rear & 33" bfg m/t's & with the sway bar disconnected, the front hits. THis is with no fender trimming.

    Others may argue, but I've got pic's. Oh, they also hit the rear inner fender's.
