S-10 / ZR-2 Help
I'm new here, but old to 4-wheeling. I built a killer CJ-7 (ARBs, TPI, Air Compressor, 35s, etc) that went everywhere in CA (Rubicon, Dusy, Hammers, etc.). It was a little overboard and a little too impractical (meaning, I sold it). I'm looking for something a little more practical, comfortable, and still with enough teeth to get me to a few of my favortie spots that aren't quite on the extreme side of things--I'm tired of a weekend of wheeling followed by a weekend of repairs.
I really like the ZR-2, but I want to fit 33s and run at least a rear ARB. I know the beast is different enough from regular S-10s that there's not really any kits for suspension lift, but does anyone know if it can be body lifted about 3" to fit 33s? If so, who makes a kit, or can it use a regular S-10 kit? Also, anyone with experience with ARBs in this truck? Is the rear the same as a normal S-10 (meaning ARB is available)? And, if I'm barking up the wrong tree, should I consider a regular (non-ZR-2)?
I hope there's at least a few guys out there that actually get their S-10s out in the rocks that know where I'm coming from. The Jeep guys are crazy, and I hoping there's a few here like that, too....
Thanks in advance.
