    Very nice looking Blazer. I see you are planning on a 6" Superlift suspension. If you haven't bought it yet, I'd recomend Either BDS or Tuff Country 6" springs up front and ORD's 4" shackle Flip + 3" springs for the rear just because I belive it'll give you a better ride. With a Blazer that looks that good, I'd want too be driving all the time, and I like the a quality ride.

    Nice ride, I have 6" on 35's and its perfect and if your going to tow that camaro it works just fine for me towing.
    I like that amp set up I just put mine under the front seat standard spot I guess.

    personally i think 8" on 35's is too big, but someone on heres got 35's on 10" and he loves it.

    i'd reconsider going w/ a 15" lift. it takes alot of expensive driveline mods to make it work, especially on a blazer. if you got lots of money to burn, be my guest. but it'll probly handle like crap.

    Yeah, i think 8" and 35's is not the way. 4" and 35's. When you get into lifts over 6", you are gonna have alot of other things to work on. Driveshafts, steering angles, and pinion angles are all gonna need work. Also, you are gonna end up needing gears and maybe better axels. It can all get VERY expensive. My "big" truck has 9"suspension, and 3 body. I run 44's. My 89 is on no lift with 33's, but will be getting 4" and 35's. Lift is in garage, looking for tires, But gotta wait till it gets painted before I can lift it.

    /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gifIt does seem that once you have gone past the 6" zone the other mods start multipling. Its a very nice looking truck I would go with the earlier dude 6" springs up front and the 4" shackle flip w/ 3" or 4" springs, on most chevy's you got to go 1" or 2" higher in the rear to get it level. How do you plan on driving it, what type of terrain? It looks Nice /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
