Super Swamper tires

I found a good deal on a set of 38.5" Super Swampers, what do I need to do to get them to fit? :raspberry:

Or.....

The email that I just sent to Autoprosoffroad.com may help as well. :undecided:

You're testing my new site resolution to be less snarky, aren't you?

I may actually buy them for my Burban if they are for sale after deer season. I plan to get it back out. Got the transmission sitting next to it on a pallet and it is in the barn for winter wrenching.

I did actually post this just to see if I could produce a Rodie aneurism. :raspberry:

Are you gonna buy a really big hammer?

The email certainly wasn't about buying the POS that is for sale. He is only 45 minutes away from me, and I will have another daily driver in the spring. :whistle:

I am running 35s on my SS with no lift, only had to trim about an inch out of the main frame rail for clearance at full lock turn..
The TB has less fender opening than the Envoy..
So you should be good..

I think your backwards there Mark, the Trailblazers fenders are open more then the Envoy's. I had to cut two inches of fender to fit my tires that a lot of TB owners report fitting even without the body lift.

I can only raise it as high you give me the tools to do so.

Are you and Mark working on a six inch body lift that you haven't told us about? j/k

HELL NO. There is no way I would do over 3. Not safe. Would love to help him if he does a diff drop suspension lift eventually.

:offtopic:

A diff drop will need some cut/weld to happen, mostly on the UCA side of things. Building a bolt-in bracket to relocate the LCAs shouldn't be too bad. Relocate the alignment plates, build a support for the diff/splined disco out of 1/2" plate and tube and bolt it in. The "HA1" front driveshaft has enough in/out play to move down a few inches and clocking the front diff slightly would help as well.

All of my front end strengthening was in preparation for building one of these. Before I "gave up" at least.

Who's going to pick up the torch?
