    Ok this may be a dumb question but I am just getting started into the 4 wheel world and I thought what better than an 89 k-5. But here is the question or questions. I am wanting to put 33's or 35s on it. Would a 2 inch lift work or would I need a 4". and where is a good place to buy the kit that dont cost an arm and a leg. ANd the other question I had. DOes anyone have a wireing chart for the blazer. I went to put a tach in and the fuse box is full of wires goin places I don't know. Like if I disconnect on wire my radio, my parking lights and my one interrior light stops working. If someone could help me it would be great.

    Do a search. Everything about tire fitment and lift heights has been asked and the answers are out there.

    As for wiring diagrams, go find yourself a Haynes manual down at your local auto parts store. They should have the diagram.

    Did you bother to search??? You should find the answers you are looking for on the tires.

    Buy some manuals to start out with.... always good to have them around to read and just get general knowledge of the truck. You should be able to get the diagrams you want in them as well. You can fit 33's under a stock K5, but if you flex it up, you will rub. Most people will tell you 4" with 33's is ideal for someone starting out. Do a search and look for pictures of trucks with 33's and see what appeals to you, then go from there. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    well if the you get the fever, you'll want a min 35" at some point so go with the 4". The rough country lift goes for a good price.
