    First off I'm sorry if this has been asked before but I don't feel like going through 10,000 posts right now,I like to use the search but not right now.For my first question,can I cut the fenders to fit bigger tires like 35's and 36's without a lift?My 2nd question is,after I cut could I put some kind of fender flares to make it look better?

    Thanks and sorry if this is old news :o .But I gotta go! Talk to ya later.

    yes you could fit 36's with alot of fender cutting, i think some guy on here is running 40's with no lift but with an insane amount of fender trimming. id try it if i had money to burn right now.

    they make fender flares for blazers but nothing probibly as big as what you would need, might want to check for different applications. fender flares are cheesy though and break off easy.

    on top of fender triming you will probably need to clearance the firewall with a BFH or use a zero-rate to move the axle forward. If you want your fenders to still have some sort of finished look you could weld a piec of 1/4" round stock to your new opening

    Grab a JC Junkyard...er Whitney catalog. They have cheap rubbery flares and nice Bushwhakers. You could do 33's with just some trimming but the 35's or 36's will need a little more persuasion. A 2" lift would help alot but it can be done with just a saw and sledge.

    Thanks guys for helping me out. There is alot of good lookin' rigs on this forum,and I think I might just put on a 2,3, or 4" lift with some trimming.For right now I'm going to be running 33's with no lift because I'm not going to be doing any major rock crawling or any thing,so next I'll put on maybe a 4" lift,some trimming and maybe 36" tire's?? :thumb:

    Thanks again guys!!
