Re: Why S10 not commonly lifted??
I wanted to do a 2" body lift, however I found a 3" body lift someone had bought and never installed. He only wanted $50 for it. I don't regreat the body lift at all. It was extremely helpful when I dropped my tranny last time. I had tons of room to get at those top two tranny bolts, not too mention the tranny cooler lines. Without hte body lift those tranny cooler lines are a royal pain in the azz.
Sorry about that teaser pic not working. Check the first link and look for a red '92 S10 Blazer posing on top of some flatted cars, page 6. He is running 52" Michelin tires.
Your going to be hard pressed to fit 52" tires under a Wrangler without it becoming real unstable. A Wranger just doesn't have the wheelbase to handle that much tire. Common upgrade is to stretch the wheelbase to 100"-104". Stock 2dr S10-Blazer is 100.5", while a stock 4dr S10-Blazer is 107". In both cases anything over 33" tires and you should push the front axle forward at least 2" to gain better firewall clearance.
