Post couple shots from this week

Been trying to get out a couple times this week, to get familiar with the difference of the blazer being lifted. hit some local trails. Did get into a pretty hairy off camber trail, definitly a wake up. feels instantly like it was going to roll. take some time to learn that one. During that time was real close to a tree, and hit a decent size bump to slam the side off tree. not too bad. wing window was open and slammed it closed and broke the handle.


Just Posing..lol


Made the wife do this a couple times, she gets real nervous when it is even a little tilted

does the superlift perform good offroad? or is it more for looks? lol I'm afraid my blazer is going to flip over when I'm offroading I'm sure its a lot more scary for you haha. looks like you had some fun. you and me should meet up sometime and do some wheeling, those trails kind of look familiar where did you go?

Yeah nothing to crazy. alot of tight corners and 3 point turns..lol. definitly scenic. The place we go is old access roads for the railroad and water authority primarily atvs run it. That sounds like a plan Benedict1337. are you familiar with sugar run? thats where the pics are from. were searching for more places to go. were headed to the poconos and jersey this weekend, try to find something to get in there as well.

so far the lift is good, we heard alot more stuff nailing the bottom before. Only real downfall and its not so much the lift per say. having the torsion bar drops and the superlift bracket being lower in the middle of the frame, i can see us getting hung up on it eventually. Eventually well have to go with the bigger tires and different wheels to widen stance a lil. she definitly feels top heavy at times...lol

thanks. putting the first couple dents into it on this run, was a little emotional..lol. Alot of whats left here are access roads, alot of them puddles have rock base to them not real chance to get stuck. We have a little more exploring to do, so far maybe about an hour and a half of wheeling. we dont have them down yet so we end up alot of times where we start..lol goin to start taking the bike in so i can go thru it faster and try to find more.
