    Undecided if I'm going 4" or 6" - want 35's and no fender hacking, not gonna be flexing this thing up so not sure if the 35's will fit on 4" of lift.............

    If possible, pics of your Burb with lift in inches, tire size, IF it has a body lift (I will not do that but it's important to know if your rig has one for comparison purposes). Brand of lift too.

    Thanks........... /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gif

    Click link in sig.....4" Rough Country system (it's a big 4" lift), 33" BFG all-terrains (I'll be stepping up to 35's this summer and most likely won't have to do any trimming), no body lift. If you don't do a lot of flexing (like me) you can put 35's on a 4" lift.

    Here is my '81 Suburban with a 4" lift and 33" tires.

    And here is a picture of a '76 Suburban that I took the motor and lift out of to put under my '81. It had 35" tires.

    The lift is a Tough Country EZ ride 4".

    No, that one's 6" Suspension, 2" body, and 38's. The folders with 6" and 36's are Ocotillo Wells, flexing the Sub, and Tiera Del Sol.

    go with a shock relocation kit, puts the shocks on the inside of the spring packs and will give you more flex /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Really...I guess I didn't know my stiff Rough Country springs could flex so far. Thanks for doing the "field testing" for me /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
