    OK thinking the K5 is staying around so its gonna be my new off roading toy. So if I used a Skyjacker 8" kit what do you think I could clear? I'd like 38s wiht minimal trimming, I think this reasonable.

    you can clear 38s with 8 and fender trimming, hell you can clear 39.5s with 4" of lift and removal of 80% of the fenders...lol

    I've got 4" Rancho lift with 3" body lift on my 77 K5 and I can clear 39.5, but I get some decent rubbing. I can clear 37's no problem. All that without trimming.

    38's should clear fairly well with that amount of lift, if you cut the inner lip off the fender well and some off the front. Another easy mod to clear the meats a lil better would be to re-drill the spring pack pin holes in the front axle to re-locate the front axle an inch or so.
