    I have been told by many of you that I should run a 4" lift, and I want 33's for many reasons, so I will not go bigger, but, does anyone have ANY pics of blazers running 4" lifts and 33s?? I am really interested, because I don't want a huge gap in the fenderwells, but I don't want to rub at ALL!! Thank you for everything!

    Mine has a 4" lift too and 33x12.5 Goodyear MT/R. I had a problem with rubbing, however my swaybar is diconnected. The fenders have since been cut, and I have no more rubbing so far.

    Here's a pic with the same lift except 2" add-a-leafs in the rear to even out the height and a set of 36x12.5x16.5's under the K5. Notice that there isn't any fender trim.

    HEY GANDOF, HOW DO YOU LIKE THE RANCHO LIFT? IS IT JUST SPRINGS AND BLOCKS? HOW MUCH DID YOU PAY?

    I have springs and blocks, and they were already on the Blazer when I bought it. Everything functions fine but it's my daily driver and it rides a little too stiff for my liking. I have RS5000's, which are pretty stiff on compression, so i'm going to replace them with 9012's, using F-350 shock towers in the front, and a custom bar in the rear. It will also get BFG KO 35's. If the front is still too stiff after that, I'll swap out the front Rancho springs for T.C. EZ's, BDS, or Nationals. The rear is getting the ORD flip.
