    well ok more info eh... I am running a 4inch super lift springs all the way around. I have done tones of fender trimming to stuff the 38.5 by 14.5 super swampers sx's in without rubbing. My engine mods include a holley intake &amp; carb hedman heddars w/ wrap dual flowmasters. My interior is bedlinered EVERYTHING even the dash and doors, plastic race seats so i can just take a hose and spray it out, i rigged up all my lights switches on the inside of my dash (so no punks can flip my lights on) My rear is a 14bolt FF detroit locked and i just picked up a brand new dana 60 (right now i have a crappy ten bolt up front.) and i wont put it in yet cause im savin for....
    4in shackle flip in rear
    8in springs up front
    ^^^maybe i might just do some radical fender trimming instead of more lift.
    44in boggers
    full cage



    note: when i first got into this my truck sat on a crappy four inch lift (blocks) front &amp; rear ten bolts. I slapped on my 38.5's took it to a local mud pit and lost my rear drive shaft in the mud (LOST IT prolly still buried too) and the front one was blown too. well i learned that this is a very expensive hobby especially in college if only i woulda found a 87' k-30 first... :)

    I am in the process of doing the same thing you are talking about. Just got my 8" fronts and 4"rear springs and 4" shackle flip. Rebuilding a D60 I picked up and once that is done, rebuild my 14 bolt and then put it all under the Blazer[​IMG]
