    Out back I have the 4" ORD shackle flip and worn out 4" springs. Up front I have 6" Super lift and ORD heavy duty shackles. And if they ever show up (they are paid for they just have to get here) I will have 37" SSR's.

    Well, Ive got what appears to be a 4" Superlift and 36" Swamper TSL's. I havent done any fender trimming and everything seems to work allright. I bought the truck with the lift so i dont really have any idea what it really is. There are pics on my page.

    4" BDS lift with 35" tires... no trimming so far, but I'm sure I'll have to do a little when I get off-roading a little more aggressive (and wear out these tires so I gotta get the 37" ssr's like I want)

    I'm running 4" Rancho susp lift (too stiff for my liking) a 1" ORD body lift and 36" TSL's on steel rims. I cut my fenders fairly agressively because i don't runa front sway bar so the tires will shred the fenders when I get all twisted up...[​IMG]

    Here's a pic just before my accident in April...

    Thought you would like to know Rancho doesn't make a lift bigger than 4". They don't offer anything bigger because of liabillity concerns per there tech people.

    I have a 2 1/2 lift and 32" tires. When I removed my running boards, and put on rock sliders I will fit 33" no problem. I have the GM saggy butt so I am either going to with a shackle flip or the 1" add a leaf from ORD, and I'll probably put the extended shackles in the front and go with 33" BFG muds. I haven't cut my fenders, and don,t plan on it.

    Tuff country lift. 4" in the front, 6" in the back (so when the top was on it sat level). 35x12.50r15 Goodyear MTRs. Ne cutting, just let the tires clear the fenders. t only rubbed for the first time I went out then went away. The tires just pushed the fenders in a little, but didnt ruin them.
