Default 2000 ZR2 1st Time Offroading

This was shot by my father with a GoPro last weekend. I just threw together some shots to show off my adventure. There were many other things I tried and failed at, but don't have them on video. The vehicle is pretty mild, with 33x10.5R15 BFG AT KO, an Airaid air intake and 2" shackel lift in the rear as the only upgrades. I was very pleased by how it all went.

33" BFG AT KO on '97 Blazer wheels. Only a 2" shackle lift in the rear, no torsion crank. Had to trim the fenders a bit, but I like the look of a low riding truck and large tire combination.

looks like you guys had some fun, camera guy did an awsome job. You sure those are 33's? looks more like 31's to me, but I like the rig and you have some nice trails out there

My father shot the video with a GoPro. And yes, I'm sure they are 33" BFG AT KO. I put them on myself. I took off the 31x10.5R15 Timberline II AT tires and ditched the stock wheels due to looks, and used the sandblasted and clear coated 15" wheels from my '97 Blazer because I like the look. I can't wait to go out again!

That's odd. I had 31" tires on my stock '97 2dr Blazer, and had to trim, but it worked just fine. I had no issue with the 31" which came on this ZR2, and I only had to trim the fenders to get these to stop rubbing. Although it was more in front, when turning that I had issues. The rear with the 2" shackles solved that rubbing issue just fine.
