    I have 7" of lift and 38 TSL's. Front fenders are trimmed like most everyone elses, and I will hack the back ones real soon. The fronts barely rub at full stuff. I'm going to a 39.5 this summer. Here's a link: <a target="_blank" href=http://coloradok5.com/gallery/album14>http://coloradok5.com/gallery/album14</a>

    Re: whos runnig 38\'s with a 6\" lift?

    I have 6" front springs with 5" long shackles (1" longer than stock) and run 4" rear springs with a stock shackle flip (stock bracket with hole cut). I have the new TrXus STS 38"x15.5"/15 radial and have trimmed my fenders quite a bit. I still rub at full stuff and plan to move the front axle forward, plus move the rear axle back 2" or so. I will also be installing a 2" body lift to make room for a doubler.

    WITH A 6IN LIFT YOU WILL HIT SOME BUT NOT TO BAD. WITH A NICE FENDER TRIM YOU SHOULD BE ALL OK. YOU CAN SEE MY WEB PAGE I HAD 38.5/14.50/15 TSL SX ON MY TRUCK WITH A 6IN SUPERLIFT. NOW I HAVE A 6IN SUSP. LIFT AND A 2IN BODY WITH 42/15/15 BUT I CUT THE HELL OUT OF THE FENDERS. HOPE THIS HELPS SOME.
