ok here is my issue. i have some 33/12.50/15 tires on 15x10 rims. the R front tire rubs during hard turing. but not the left. tread is the same on both so i didnt know if it might have be just a bad shock on that side. well i figured to just go with a four inch lift with my 33s but found a great deal on a six inch lift and i would save a bunch of cash. But i dont want to go to bigger tires yet. not untill i can afford to get new diffs for the front and back. Would a six inch lift be to big for my 33s? does anyone run 6inchs of lift with 33s that has a picture so i can get an idea of how it would look. I dont want my truck look wierd with a big ass lift and small ass tires. thanks

Terrs will probably look small.

mine has that - but I bought it like that - 6 seems a bit high (not for tire size) just not to my taste.
I have a 6 inch lift with 33 inch tires.

33 inch tires is just about perfect for gas mileage. I have 3.73 gears with a TH350 3 speed transmission. So I think I'm going to keep what I have - just drop it down to a 4 inch lift on the front - that way the ass end sag will be gone.

Wont be too bad, should still look good until you move up to a 35.

There are other cheaper options than all spring lift. (wish I would have known about them before I lifted my 86)

Check out shackle flips, cheap and give a better ride.
You could also just go with an easy inch from DIY4X.com. $80 for the inch and $100 for all new u-bolts and you're done. Don't have to start worrying about brake lines or drive shafts, keep your stock shocks... and you'll be into it for $200.

AND if you do the easy way you could fit 35's in the future with minimal trimming on the fenders, so minimal you probably wouldn't even notice it.

I'm still not sure if I have a 4 or 6 inch lift but I have 32's on mine. Just right for my taste. Never been into the big balloon tires, no offense to anyone here. I'm sure with that 6 inch lift on that badass Blazer no one is gonna dare laugh at your 33 inch rubber.

x2 and that way when you get 35's your truck is going to be ready for bigger tires

thanks for the site but the six inch lift that i found is almost new and never been offroad for under $200 so i cant pass up that idea. after looking at stompers 77 blazer not worried about the hiegth to tire size ratio.

Yea can't pass that up. You'll find 35"s someday for cheap on craigslist I'm sure.
