    I have learned over the years tires make a big diff. with the Blazer. The hood vents are off of a Z34 Lumina, they just fit right in there nice.

    I agree with the tires thang! I always have to make sure the air pressure is not a even bit low or the truck starts to feel like a tippy canoe! I have pretty meaty tires, but nothing like yours. I wish I had the grill with lights set up that would be sweet.

    My ZR2 has a Tough Country 2.5" lift in it, and 32's. It actually rides very nice and is responsive thought the ZR's have huge front and rear sway bars, and I'm pretty sure that contributes a great deal to the stability. I had always wanted a push bar for the front and had never been able to find anything that looked mean/cool. I was in the store that sells us our emergency lights at the fire department and I seen a Crown Vic police push bar in the corner. He sold it to me for basically the price of scrap steel as it was not usable (older model part) and I modified it to go on the front of my truck. I love the pre runner off road look so I had to ad more lights than I will ever use on the front, well.....cause 'Merica:D

    me too, as long as not too much camber. Only first gen though,I hate the second get. The smiley face front is just dumb.
    Was looking at a mazdaspeed, but they're pricey. They're fast, but at the end of they day its still front wheel drive...

    I think I'll be going back to a truck or awd car.
