Re: MORE S10 BASHING FROM PETERSEN\'S

This is all sh!t the S-10 in my mind is one of the best off-road vehicles around. For instance you take a short bed regular cab S-10 with the Zr2 package (which is no longer avalable in this model) But it would perform better off-road than a cj jeep. They need to look at some of the S-10's that are out there. If i could figure out how to attach a picture i would show you guys what my truck does.

Mileage, you have to make sure the picture size is less than 100kb. Make sure the file is saved as a .jpg file, which will make the file smaller than it would be if it were a .bmp... You click the check box immediately above the "continue" button and then after you have the box checked, click continue, and that'll take you to the screen where you preview your post and attach a file. Click browse and go to where the file is on your computer and select it. Then click continue or similar button, and it should attach it. If you have problems getting the pic(s) shrunk down, you can email them to me, my email address is listed in my profile...

Re: MORE S10 BASHING FROM PETERSEN\'S

I just got back from the Rubicon. I went in about 5 miles to Spider Lake and back out in my 2001 ZR2 Blazer. It's got a 2" body lift, 33s, 1/4" steel skid plates on the bottom, transfer case raised 1" for better breakover, a QuickAir II air compressor, and a rear ARB.

It did pretty good. It's no Jeep or Land Cruiser, but it did pretty good. I need another 2 or 3 inches to clear the frame (suspension lift, anyone?). And, it needs nerf bars or rock sliders to protect the rocker panels (I put a small dent in the passenger side, but it was so minor, I didn't need a trip to the body shop).

I had no problems with traction at all. I climbed like a mountain goat the whole time. The only problem was clearance, and no-one makes a suspension lift for it.

I had a lot of hard-core (trashed Jeeps) guys tell me I was f'in crazy for going out there. I made it in and out, and the only damage was a couple scrapes on the plastics flares (repainted with spray--looks as good as new), a bruise in the rocker panel (fixed at home), and scratching up the stock rims--this I expected.

Is the S-10 hard core? Nope. Can it do a respectable job with a few mods? The ZR-2 can. The regular S-10 can too with a suspension lift.

Just my .02

2000 ZR2 Blazer; 2 Inch Body; 33s; Air Compressor; Rear ARB
