2000 s10 body lift

hey guys just wanted to let every one know, b/c there have been some questions about this in the past...

i just got a 2" body lift on my 2000.1 2wd s10 with a set of american racing rock crawlers and 30*9.50 BFG MT... any how ppl have been wondering if the tires will rub... well yes, at a full lock the tires to rub, which is expected... but trust me the tires more than make up for it in the mud!! i should have some pics of the truck soon....

Re: 2000 s10 body lift

Are those Rock Crawlers the NASCAR looking black powdercoated ones? Are they pretty heavy? I love the look of them, but was concerned with the weight compared to an aluminum wheel. I really need some 15x8s on my 85. The sidewalls bulge too much on the 15x7s! Are the centers of the wheels pretty thick? Post some pics when you can, we'd all love to see it, sounds cool!

Re: 2000 s10 body lift

yeap those are the ones

not sure on the actuall weight.. they are heavier than aluminum though.. the weight of my truck (or lack of weitght) makes up for it though..

the off road shop that did my work recommended the wheel b/c 1.) i was on a budget, and its a good wheel for the money.

the centers are pretty thick.. im not to familier on what a good off road rim should have though...

personally i love 'um..

hehe .. pictures are on the way... i dont have a scanner so they are being developed to cd as we speak.

Re: 2000 s10 body lift

Yeah, on a 2wd, your front bearings can handle the weight better, and if not they're fairly cheap to replace. Cool, I know we're all just waiting to see a 2000 2wd lifted! I may hold off on them until I get the Dana 30 front on the 85 though, as I don't need to replace $150 wheel bearings on the IFS. They sound like a great wheel though. I know when I ran a Street Stock car on dirt, Bart wheels were what we ran with an almost 1" thick center and 1" diameter long studs, and they were beat severly, but never bent or broke. Ahh, those were the days! Anyway, thanks for the info. My next wheels will be AR's.

Re: 2000 s10 body lift

yeah bud, get those pics up. i put the 2" body lift on my 2000 2wd a few months ago and do to an unexpected expense, i havent been able to do the tire/wheel thing yet. so im still running on the 205's (looks sorta funny). i was thinking about going with bfg 235's, do you think those will rub? they should be 1" smaller than the 30's. HURRY WITH THE PICS, I WANT TO SEE!

How noisy are those new BFG MT's on the highway? I've been thinking about getting a set.

road noise is minimal.. windows roald up and radio at a low volume you can hear a low hum... tell you the truth i love the way it sounds.... i have had the tires for about 3 weeks now.. drive the freeway atleast 4 times a week and it doesnt bother me yet....
