Default Mmmrodge's 2000 Jimmy

I'm new to posting around here but I have been creeping for a little while. Here is my quick dabble in S-series trucks.
2005 bought a 95 Jimmy for a winter beater. Brakes were so bad the front calipers were wearing against the rotors. Did exhaust tune up, fuel pump, spideys and swapped in a 2000 blazer leather seats, new carpet and drove the **** out of it. here she is

bought some Z28 rims and figured they would look better with 33's on them, so I ordered Rough Country 2.5" lift and Performance Accessories 2" body lift and began wrenching

saved for pictures of broken parts, empty wallets and stories of how I wished I wanted to be like everyone else and buy a Jheep

They will rub big time on the front!

See here;
https://blazerforum.com/forum/tires-...er-pics-71189/

I am currently running 33x10.5's and I have built up the steering stops with a 5/16" piece of round steel and I still touch the frame. I have my fenders trimmed significantly and I still rub the fender at times. I have the 2.5 " lift on order bit it will only gain me another 1.5" on the front. Basically the RC lift will level out my blazer.

If your blazer stays on road you might be fine.
