    trade your 6" lift with brand new 35/12.5/15" procomp xterrins on procomp steel wheels for a 10" lift and some 2 1/2 year old 38.5/15/15" mickey thompson bajas on american eagle racing rims?? the rims are 6 lug. the dude that is trading with me had his truck sitting dorring the week and raced on the weekends. the tires are in good condition. i am mostly concerned with my 12 bolt axle. :confused::confused: it seems tooo good to be true!!

    Well, it all depends on what you`re using it for. This your mall crawler? mud bogger? trail rig? If its your trail rig, I say 6 to keep the COG down

    nO WAY don't do it for one your tires and wheels are worth way more and two 10 inch lifts suck for anything but a mall wheeler trust me on this one

    Stiff is good for making girls boobs bounce but otherwise it sucks stick with your six inch lift and 35" tires it's a very good combo

    if a 6" lift isnt enough. do what im doing. some zero rates and a 3" body lift. still have flex.. have room for forties. and the beauty is... it's less than $180 for the lift. <---- think about it. besides why buy another 44? make yours stronger!

    4"-5" is plenty of lift for 40's...

    I have 6" lift and 1" BL and 40's and am seriously considering removing the 1" body lift.

    although i would love to just cut the hell out of my fenders and all that jazz. im still in high school. i have spent all my money on this suburban. it is in fairly good condition except for some dents. although i am a wheeler... im planning on doing something crazy to this sub and buying a 80's s-10 to beat the hell out of and swap me 3/4 ton under the s-10 this summer when i get back and get a job. im not putting 40's on... just some 38.5x11r16's this summer. i have some 37x13.5r18 nitto's. but they are going to rub the hell out of the fenders... thats why im doing the lift.
