Default offroading capabilities

My 2000 blazer ls has 31 inch tempra trail cutter m/t's with no lift. I am just curious how good it would be offroading. Thinking maybe someone here had a similar set up

If you had a ZR2 you would have no problems offroading with 31's. With a non-lifted Blazer, I'd stick to the parking lot yet stay away from the speed bumps.

Not trying to be sarcastic in the least but plan on a LOT of rubbing when you flex the suspension.

It will definitely do better than a car and probably alright on some logging roads. Chose your route carefully thats all.

Well my tires say 31 only measured up to about 30 and even on some pretty solid bumps have not rubbed yet

go on ebay and look, I got mine from a company called WARRIOR. They extremely well made and powder coated as well. I had them installed within 45 minutes with an air hammer.
