Default how to fit 33s

Okay. It is my dream to put 33s on my 95 blazer SUV and also plow with it. What do y'all think. How much of a lift will I need. I don't mind cutting into the fenders. I was thinking a 2 inch body lift and or suspension lift and massive trimming. What will be necessary? Is it worth it? I'd like to be able to handle myself on most trails and get into some rock climbing. Is there a chance I can do this with 2" lift and t bar crank or will I need more?. What else will I have to replace? The driveshaft gear ratio transfer case? Would it be more practical to go a little smaller? Anyway some feedback would be awesome as to what y'all pros think. Thanks

think you could do 31s with a 2inch lift and a fair amount of trimming. Also wouldn't be to much of a strain on or drivetrain. My truck in the pic has a 2 inch lift and a 2 inch body lift with 31 x 10.5 tires

33's with low lift can be done, but you're going to have to do tons of trimming. IMO stick with 31's or smaller, the IFS on these trucks will thank you. 33's are heavy and will cause lots of problems... especially if you add a plow to the equation.

i had 33s on my 85 with no lift what so ever, just hacked up the fenders but thats a differnt body style. if its a old beater youre going to use just for plowing then go that route, saves you money and time.

Why do you need 33 inch for plowing?

I just want good tires with good grip. I don't need 33s for plowing I just want to be able to rock crawl and survive on most trails. I've got 31s on my Silverado and I wanted them to be bigger. But it sounds like 31s might be the best option here.

IFS and Rock Climbing do not really go together
