2\" body/31\"tires on 95 4dr 4x4 blazer???

I plan on putting a 2" inch body lift on my 1995 4 door 4x4 blazer. Then Im going to put some 31" bfgs on the stock rims. Will this work? I want to avoid a torsion bar crank and addaleafs. From what I have read on the internet this should work but I want to absolutely make sure.
Any other comment would be helpful because I have never done anything like this before
Thanks

My 31's fit good with out a body lift and not cranking the torshon bars up. They how ever did rub on the frame at full turn. This was with my factory rims. After getting 8" neutral rims a 3" body lift still had to crank the torshon bars and am still getting a very little rub from the front rear fenders when I am turning and flexing at the same time. 5" susp. is next and 33" tires with 4:10's to pull them of course. Rambling aren't I. Sorry!

Re: 2\" body/31\"tires on 95 4dr 4x4 blazer???

Im kinda in the same predicament. I have a 2000 blazer 2dr that i want to lift as well. My question was pretty much the same as yours. From what i have been told 31's will fit with a 2" bodylift with stock rims but the tires will rub at full lock. By changing to a rim with a different offset 31x10.50x15 should not rub,just coming up with the proper offset is the tricky part. any off-road-hy-po shop should have that information.If you crank up your torsion bars about 1.5" and put a 2" shackle in the rear you might be able to fit 32x11.50's or maybe 33x12.50's with the proper rim offset which i think would look really frickin sweet. If you do manage to shoehorn 33's be prepared for some rubbin action to happen at full lock-craig

33x12.50's would be a very tight squeeze without an additional suspension lift. I am running 33x10.50's on my blazer with a 5" suspension lift. Both front (on frame and what remains of inner fender) and rear tires (at the front) rub during serious off-roading, even with fiberglass on the front. I run stock wheels, but more offset will not solve all your clearance problems.

By lookin at my blazer (2000 2dr 4x4 with 2inch body lift) there is no way 33's would fit unless you can get about 3.5 inches of lift from the t-bars, just dont see that happening...unless Hey Weazle, if i were to put on the SAW t-bars which you say give about 2inches of lift anyway, and then brank them you think it would work??? Man i hate when good ideas come to me in the middle of typing a post, lets see where this one goes.

NOOOOOO WAAAAAYYYYYY..... [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]Hahahahahahah[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

I have 2" body, 3" suspension and 2" from the bars AND frakenstein fenders to fit the 33x12.5's.. 3 3/4 back space rims and I still rub the frame at full lock..

You can realy overcrank these bars but the CV angles become a problem.. I had about 2 1/2 but I could feel and hear a slite clunk so I lowered (can I say that on this list??) it 1/2 inch..

What about cutting a lot of fender? I haven't tried it myself but I was considering cutting to fit 33s with my 2in body
