Find some nice wheels and tires and maybe drop it a few inches. Another nice thing I've seen are xtreme's with shaved bumpers. I've seen some real clean xtremes, just make sure you're doing it right the first time and not trying to cut corners.

The Xtreme blazers have the best suspension geometry of all iterations of the gen2 Blazers. Use that to
Your advantage. Tighten that up with some urethane bushings, lower it ever so slightly and put some Camaro or Corvette rubber underneath.

its alive and well i plan on putting a posi rear axle in and most likely flaring out the fenders so i can put 295's in the back and 255's in the front. giving it a wider stance.

As I understand the way Blazers handle it is probably wise to mount the same size tire and wheel front and back.
