Default My 99

Just bought this 1999 Blazer 2dr 4x4 170k miles 6 days ago, paid 2500 for it.
So far I havent done anything to it yet, plan on lifting it 2.5" with some decent tires for some off road action.
Any ideas of what to do, feel free to give me your input.

Yup ZR2 soos its already lifted. Its built for off road. $2500 you came up. Use your money to restore the truck not to modify it!

the wheel flares make it zr2.
in the glove box door there is a RPO decal with what your ride has. it will tell you gears, limited slip and it will have ZR2 on there as well.

good find, looks to be in good shape.

Well ill be dammed it is!
Yeah this thing is mint, I am second owner on it. Previous owner was an old couple that never took it off road or towed anything.
The only thing it needs are some new tires.

Tires look undersized, should have 31x10.5r15 stock. small lift and some trimming and you can run 33's.

Nice score on the Z!

Should be good for now to do some offroading, going to get some new wheels and some 31'' tires in the next 6 months or so when I get some new shocks put on it.
I definitely think the wheels are way undersized.
