    Okay. I have been contiplating which lift to go with on my build. I would like to run between 35 and 38" tires and have plenty of room for flex. I am leaning towards a 4" lift and maybe some fender trimming. I don't want the tree tops scratching my roof. I have been on BrandonC's web site and like they way his old blazer is set up. I just don't see 2" being that much of a difference.

    if 38's then 6in if 35's then 4in and you'll probally need slight trimming with either if u want alot of flex at least on the front the back will be fine

    Werd. If you have 3.08, 35s may be too much.
