    If I put 33's on my blaze what size lift should I put I don't want a body and a 4inch would look funny with those 33's and a 4 inch or I could put 35's ,but afraid it woulden't take the abuse.

    Why wouldnt it take what abuse? 33's and 4" don't look bad, go for that or 35's with a tad bit of triming if you flex if you just do mud and street then you can do 35 and 4"

    Well, I have 10-bolts front and rear, with 4.56 gears, and full detroits in both axles, as well as 35 BFG MTs with 4" suspension and 1" body lift. My rig takes the abuse quite well. Spent quite a bit of time pulling vehicles stuck in the mud up to their frame this past weekend. So, it will stand up.

    However, if you only want 33s, I would suggest a 4" lift. It is the only way to go and guarantee no rubbing under flex. Plus, you will have room to go taller later, which you will.
