    Just found this site. I have a 2003 Trailblazer that I'm looking to put about a 5 inch lift on (2inch body & 3 inch suspension).
    Will be using as a DD, but also plan to use on trails (not rock crawling) and some muddin'. I'm basically looking for any suggestions.
    I'm farelly mechanical but lack the terminology, so bare with me if I ask a lot of dumb questions.

    Welcome to the site! I don't think I've seen any "lifted" TBs.

    Welcome to the forum! I agree, I don't think I've ever seen a lifted Trailblazer. Post pics when you're done!

    Welcome to the site

    I was doing some searching and it seems that the trailblazer is not high on the priority list to make lift kits for. I did find one so far here is a link. It is not much but you can get probably 2" over stock tires under your Trailblazer. The listing says up to 35", but don't be fooled this is meant for truxxx lifts across all truck makes and models as the maximum achievable lift. I don't see 35" tires fitting under a trailblazer with only 2" of lift.

    Found what might get you close to where you want. It is 2" spacers front and rear and 2" body lift. Total Price around $900.

    Here's the link

    Default Thanks for the welcome

    The BDS body lift is the way that I'm going go for the body lift. That will get me 2 inches. I just need to figure out the suspense lift. The rearend shouldn't be too much trouble. It's the front that is going to be the headache. I've thaought about going with coil spacers, but that will only give me another 2 inches. I really need at least the full 5 inches. I'm also going to have to modify the front fenders to stop any tire rub. Also, anybody got any suggestions on bumbers. Going to have to replace to add a winch.
