4\" or 6\" with 35\'s??

I own a 89 jimmy 2dr 2wd. I want to put 35 inch thornbirds on it but want NO rubbing (its mostly for street and screwin around once in a while). if possible i dont want to have to trim the fenders. if anyone has put 35's on an 89 jimmy, any input would be great. Any input at all would be appreciated. im not sure what company makes lifts for my truck, but want a 4" or 6". cost isn't a real issue but i would like to keep it under $2500. im in Ontario so would like to order out of canada if possible, if not no big deal it's just easier. thanks

HHEHEHEHEHEHEheheheheHAHAHAHAHAHAHA[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]... Is that Canadian $2500 you want to keep it under??? Tires, rims, mount ballance are gonna be around $1000 (american mula) of that (add more if ya want a spare).. AND you want no rubbing and not cut fenders!?!?!? Tie both arms behind my back!!! [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]2wd hmmm, a 3" body lift is a start for around $100.. Add a suspention lift from Fabtech, Camburg, or whomever the other company was for upwards of $1000.. Not sure on exact price.. Oh, then there is install if you dont plan on doing it yourself.. Estamate half the cost of the lift for install..
Next you might want to think about replacing the 10 bolt in the rear.. Its the small one and not the same as in the full size.. That one time you go screwin around will break that axle.. A good cantidate is the F*rd Exploder with the 8.8 and disks..
I got one for you.. Why Thornbirds??? They really suck in snow and mud..

Sounds like bongman needs to lay off the bong! Really, 35's under a 2wd? I've got a 2" body lift and a 3.5" suspension lift on my pickup and my 29" 235/75/R15's still rub at full turn. To run that size I've already had to spend $2500. Basically 35 inchers aren't gonna happen. sorry!?
