    Should I get an 8" BDS Lift Kit or a 10/12" Skyjacker lift kit?

    I would like to put 38's Boggers on my '86 Blazer and I do not really want to trim the fenders.

    Any thoughts?

    Remember the taller you get the more tippy you get. I have an 8inch lift with 38s and sometimes wish it was a 6inch. I also trimmed my fenders a little.

    i would get an 8" superlift but get the non soft ride...i ran 39 boggers with that combo and i didnt have any troubles

    i am guessing you are getting the 38 x 11's since i dont think the 38 15s are out yet. they are quite narrow so you should be fine with that lift

    Later

    [/ QUOTE ]Yes, the Sawzall is your friend. 10-12" Susp lifts will brake your back. I love my 6" very much. I hated my 10-12" (front 12, rear 10).
