Hi all, new from NJ and literally just picked up my 2003 trailblazer an hour ago :cheers: I’m looking for some ideas on a cheap 2-3” lift and a larger tire for some mild off-roading. Looks like I found the right place!

Hey, welcome!

I’ve been using the 2inch rough country leveling kit and z71 springs in the rear.

You NEED spacers if your going to run a tire more than 30.5

I’m running 32s.

Yep got the TB in the driveway. Also ordered the spacer lift (3" front/2" back) for it and found a set of lightly used mud tires for it for cheap on Craigslist. Can I use the existing rear shocks or do I need to get longer ones? I'm ballin on a budget right now so if I don't have to replace that would be great and maybe early next year I can make some upgrades.

Rear shocks do need to be replaced, your fronts are fine.

Did you pick up wheel spacers?

Thanks, the tires I got are only slightly bigger than stock 245/75/16. I could have gone bigger but got a smokin deal on these
