Re: 12 inch blocks??

whoa, what a can of worms, for 36's you sure don't need 12" of lift...that's #1. And you better make sure that you have the gears to spin these big tires. Power is where it's at in the mud with a fullsize and the proper gears will let you use the engine to its fullest potential. I personally wouldn't go over 35" tires with stock axles if you plan to 4x4 this truck hard. But for a bit of reference, I'm including a pic of my '79 Blazer. It has 36" TSL Swamper Radials and a 4" Tuff country lift. I'm still going to have to cut the fenders some and the truck isn't completed yet. But it will give you some ideal of clearances. I did 4" springs in front, and a homeade shackle flip out back. hope to help,

Bryan
