    I have a 1986 tuned port fuel injected 350 with a 4" lift on 33X12.5 15X10" rims, whats the biggest tires i can get with that lift and those size rims? My lock rite has gone out in my rear end i need suggestions on whether i should replace them with a new locker or just put the spider factory gears back in?

    If you don't do any hard core 4 wheeling, you can get 35's on without a problem. That's what I'm running and havent had a problem yet.

    85 Blazer on an 82 chassis, 6.2L Diesel, ORD flip, 35's with no cutting on a 4" lift.

    I have 36" Swampers with a 4" lift, 1" ORD body lift and some moderate to serious trimming...[​IMG] for a pic just check out the "Blazers can fly" post, the first pic is my truck.

    36's should fit but you could get a 2 inch body lift for like 150 bucks or less i am not sure. you could even probably sweeze bigger than 36 if you dont offroad.
