Ok here's some solid information. Mark's 2 1/2" front lift with new bilstein HDs and 2" rear spacers with stock springs and shocks (new bilsteins to come). Chrome Gunner 6 17 X 8 X +25 offset wheels (stock wheels are 17 X 7 X +50 offset). The wheels give an additional 12 mm inside clearance. Cooper Discoverer ATP 265/70 17 tires. No spacers, no cutting, no other mods. About an inch upper ball joint clearance. At most I may have to shave a quarter inch from the lower front bumper but so far no rubbing at all in turns or over bumps. It's close but works.

I like the look of all of these rigs and the different equipment levels and mods. Des anyone know what High Voltage was running on his truck in the winter pics he had? I am wanting to go for that look, but cant figure out what he was rolling on. Any help would be greatly appreciated! The 2006 TrailBlazer Ext is coming ot me soon and I want to figure out what all I need to do soon, so I ca n not drive a weiner dog too long! Thanks, fellas, awesome looking trucks!

Thanks guys for all the help and a great weekend!


I'm sure you can find more specifics over there. Now that I think about it, isn't there a bunch of pics of his ride next to Hardtrailz?


Edit: I see Hardtrailz posted. He should know!

Don't I know it. Must kept coming back to these. Gave the wife n couple others my choices and these kept getting picked. I still think painting stock wheels looks ghetto but the black n silver look sucked me in.
