I recently acquired a '74 K5 in rather decent condition. Has some light (not even through the panel when I'm trying to punch through with a screwdriver) rust in the rocker area and one front fender, but haven't dug too deep at this point. After lurking around here for years and now that I finally have found a smog-exempt, decent Blazer, I'm trying to lay out the "Grand Master Plan". I know, that will change over time, but it gives me something to do. Initially I was looking at 33" tires and a 4" ORD lift with shackle flips and EZ rides. Maybe looking at crossover steering at the same time. Now, I'm looking at 35" tires as there just seems to be a better selection and, well, bigger is better, right? Brings me to my question: I was looking at the table that I found here and was trying to get some input as to how high I would NEED to go to get 35" tires under this beast without really asking too much from the D44 and 12B. My wife isn't too keen on my buying new diffs right now, so that's not a real option. Would I risk blowing them on a regular basis using it around town and moderate off-road with the 35's or would I better served with a 4" suspension lift and 33's? Or would I be able to do a 4" suspension lift, 1" body lift, and not have too many problems with 35" tires? Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
