    Re: What size lift and tires is this?

    I would have to bet the suspension is 8" front and rear springs because you can see the rear springs on the first pic and there are no blocks.

    I also see a 3" body lift because you can see the gap between the rear bumper and the bottom of the bed on the first pic too.

    Tires are around the 39" range, IMO.

    Before you go buy the stuff, PM the owner of that truck and see what he says.

    I could be wrong on the opinions.

    Why not wait and see what others on the site think about the amount of lift and tires, too?

    red is all over that
    but the 39.5 always looked skinny to me and those dont
    might be the 38.5/16/16.5(or 15)

    That is NOT4SHW's blazer. It has 8" superlift springs front and rear. A 2 1\2 shackle flip in the rear, Hill 4 wheel drive shackles in the front and a 3" body lift. He runs 39.5 swampers and 39.5 boggers in the rear now.

    Thanks!

    So does he have 6 inch springs then in the back?

    I really like the looks of the poportions of the truck. I think I'm pretty set on a simular setup for myself.

    Does a shackle flip add lift (I was under the impression that they did)? Cause it didn't look like the back end was jacked up more than the front.
