    most manufacturers offer 1983-2004 s-10 blazer/pickup lift kits.

    Superlift, BDS, Rancho, etc

    BDS and Performance Accessories also offer body lift kits, you can get a 3 inch body lift kit for your SUV.


    check that out. it will give you an idea where to start.

    Google is your friend.

    (I have a 2 inch BDS body lift on my 2000 S-10 ZR2...I like it. I can clear 31's stock, and 33's with the body lift and MINOR trimming of the wheel wells.)

    I have a 94 S10 Tahoe LT 4dr 4x4 and It has a 3" body lift and a 2" superlifts suspension lift.
    You want bigger tires, what size tires do you want to run?
    Is your truck a 2 or 4 wheel drive?
    if its 4x4 you can crank your T-bars for a little front lift.
    what gear ratio are you running?
    what do you have for an engine 2.8?
    I'm running 31x10.5 R15 but i would try running those with a 2.8, it takes alot of power to turn those tires.

    body lifts are nice because it doesn't raise the center of gravity as much as it does when you do the suspension lift.

    But you can run 31's with just the body lift and a turn of the t-bars.
    and to lift the rear end a bit I would just go buy some air shock from autozone the gaberials have a lifetime warranty. and they seem to hold air very well.
    it you do a rear axle flip it's going to be to high.
    I think my body lift took me about 8 hours to install.

    you can get 4"-5" out of them for the back.

    I have a 1937 flathead ford V-8 in the back of mine,
    Plus alot of scrap that I'm waiting to trade in.
