    Get more leaf springs put in instead of body lift, the body lift will cause a unusual looking space between the body and the frame. You can buy something to fix it, I forget what its called though. That's just my .03 cents worth. Wait till someone more experianced posts. Nice pic by the way, and welcome to CK5! /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    Looks like a good Blazer to start a prodject off with /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
    Just a bit of advice. Fill out Your profile so people know what You have (year engine tranny lift ect) also location is good for locating parts clubs and wheeling locations. With out any info it's hard for people to give out advice. Hope this helps You out and welcome to CK5 /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    Profile looks good. Trust Me it will help out in the end. Befor You decide on a lift check out the site for a while a get some oppions on what might work best for Your Blazer. If You do plan on buying parts from ORD and such a CK5 membership will save You a lot of money with the members discount and You get a lot more access to info on the site. My membership saved Me $15 on My last purchase /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Does that Skyjacker lift have blocks in the rear? If it does I say pullem out and go to a homemade shackle flip. If 37"ish is your eventual tire goal, I suggest looking into 36x12.5x16.5 Goodyear Wrangler R/T IIs (aka Hummer biasply). They are military surplus and can usually be found for pretty cheap (I bought 4 with AT LEAST 70-80% tread for $100). I like them alot better on the road than TSLs, they are obviously cheaper than Goodyear MT/Rs or other 37"ish tire . With these tires I also suggest going to an 8lug wheel (possibly the hummer beadlocks, also extremely cheap, for being a beadlock) and upgrading to 3/4 ton axles. Just my 2cents. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    Looks like it's time for a Mod to step in......

    The way I read it, Corey is just informing you of the rules. Because you have only a few posts and only registered here 6 months ago, he pointed out that selling things is reserved for members in the proper forum. What's wrong with that?

    It looks like YOU should go and have a chat with your mom about manners. /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif

    In the future, please refrain from acting like an asshat.

    /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gifThe skyjacker is just springs no blocks. The axles are 10 bolts and have been upgraded to 30 spline, I think. I like the 37's and I dont plan on doing any major offroading any time soon. Do you think the axles will hold up? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    [/ QUOTE ]

    Up to 35's with light wheeling they should. Some of us , myself included , are still running 1/2 ton gear. If you put 37's on there you may break easier. When you went 30 spline did you use used axles , or new carriers/spiders and shafts? How about a locker in the rear? You can try the 37's , but keep in mind if you get on it crossed up or stuck, something may let go. Go wheeling with others and never alone. Hope it helps /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    Yep, as long as you don't beat on them too hard and they are unlocked.
