Default WOT Magazine Blazin Build

Hey guys and gals,

We are building a 1995 Chevy S10 Blazer to represent WOT Magazine (www.wotmagazine.com) in the offroading/trail community. You can follow along here or on our website as we do our build.

Some of the completed modifications so far can be found at the links below, we feel this is easier than posting a bunch of photos right now.

Y'all said the stopping powers atleast 3x greater? It might be in there somewhere but what size tires are y'all running on this rig now and what size is going to be on the final product?

Slotted rotors are great on street. Drilled tends to create cracks and warp easier. Neither are real great on 4x4s, mud and dirt get trapped in them and basically sand the pads down faster.

Yes I've tried them and won't be going back unless they are given to me free.

Well for me my truck doesn't go offroad. I've never actually "had" to use my 4x4. Now when I was doing my old bosses lawn Id use 4lo so I didn't tear up his grass pulling a trailer loaded with mulch.
