Re: Body Lift
Thank you J.R. By the way, the body lift I'm considering is from Rough Country, not Rancho. I just want to add a bit of body clearance for an inch larger tire, thus a bit more ground clearance. I considered suspension lifts, but don't want the expence nor the possible suspension side effects. When it comes time to replace the truck, I will definitely get the Z package Chevy offers for the S-10. I like to explore the desert/mountain country I live in, plus I'm an author and researcher of regional history, so I often find myself in some interesting off-roading situations. I cringe everytime I find myself having to traverse some nasty terrain, for there is an awful lot of alumninum under the truck. To Chevy's credit, everything is well tucked up between the frame rails. I don't have skid plates (another procrastinatated purchase), and often worry when traversing such terrain, waiting for a loud crunch with oily results. I've smacked bottom a number of times, but so far have been lucky and the frame rails have taken the brunt of the hits, along with a couple of dings in the rocker panels.
