Default Lifting 1987 k5 Blazer

Hey guys so I just bought a 1987 blazer k5 with 66000 miles really clean truck .. I want to purchase a 6" Rough Country lift w/ 52 leaf . Transmission drop bracket. Dual steering stabilizer. Drop arm for the steering. New shocks. Also add a 3inch body lift .. So you guys think this well clear 38 13.50 r17 with some spacers? Keep in mind this is a weekend truck to have some fun and pull the jet ski

abig84 will become famous soon enoughabig84 will become famous soon enough

i owned a 85 k5 blazer with 38 12.50 tires on a 6inch body and 2 inch body lift and it cleared for the most part. very rarely like if i was taking a turn and hit a big pothole or flying into the driveway would it hit. hard to tell what those spacers will do though. gonna be close but if its mostly a street truck it should be ok.
