it looks pretty cool, not sure how it will do offroad though. I am planning on lifting the durango 2" with 32" or 33" it wont see much wheeling mainly to and from hunting areas and the ocaccional two track.

Ahh, I finally found it. I posted in his introduction thread about a company that at one time made a 6" lift for the envoy and trailblazer. I finally found their name again. Unfortunately, they quit making them, or more likely never mass produced the kits because of low demand.

Do a search for custommotorsports.com envoy lift. They offered a 6" suspension and a 3" body lift. I believe their kit included brackets to drop the front diff and axles below the oil pan eliminating the interference issue. Like I said, I don't believe it ever made it to production. They had a picture on their site at one time, but I couldn't find anything...

Yeah that kit never took off because i belive it didnt work. 6" body lift wouldnt work just because of the fact that there is about 3 1/2" of play in the wireing and the brake line would have to be cut and have extensions but on. And yeah the CV boots would be getting replaced every 5 miles if there wasnt a kit for the oilpan.
This is a pic of the biggest know trailblazer/envoy. 3" custom body lift and 3" suspension with i belive toyota Tacoma coilovers

I think it was just ridiculously priced. The front suspension would have worked pretty much the same as most independant front lifts that are on the market. Other than having to pull the axle shaft to install it. I think they were asking $3k for it. and their kit's seam to consist of spacers. So, for 2 spacers for the rear, spacers or relocaters in the front, a bracket to drop the front cross member, and some misc. hardware.....


I want to keep mine now and lift it up just to do it.......
