Default 98 Blazer Lift Project

Here is my 4x4 98 S10 Blazer LT. Bought it without a motor for 500 and ran from there. Sat stock for a few months until I couldn't bare it any more. I couldn't find any pictures of it at stock height. Here is a picture with the 2 inch body lift on it and roof rack.

I'm not sure why my pictures are posting sideways. But anyways, I decided to go for a Rough Country 6 inch lift and bigger tires. I decided on BFG All Terrains 32" with 10 inch wide 15 inch basic black rims.

Now I have a full spare on the rack and 4 KC's wired into a toggle switch panel that replaced the pre existing cassette player. I will upload good pictures soon.

Cragar Soft 8 Wheels. Basic and simple, but have been great for me so far.

They'll look good! They sell caps and lugs for them as well

Just so you know the soft 8's have about 2" less back spacing than stock. So your tires will stick out past your fenders and you will add strain to your ball joints. I had a set and I really liked the look, but they were bent so I got rid of them.

That is actually the look I am going for and that is just the price I will have to pay I suppose. But it is defiantly something to keep in mind and consider.
