    If you are wanting to hide you frame,I myself ( if I had the time ) would go for the Body drop. Body kits don't look that great, at least the 1st generation blazers. plus it shows that you put more time, work and effort than say bolting on a kit. but that is just my look at it.

    i also agree with blazinblue about this.

    which brings me to another question. are typhoon kits compatible with an s-10 blazer and if so would you think thats retarted to do it because it would be like a fake typhoon?

    I used to think that body kits were the way to go, they made the car appear lower, but at the same time you could maintain a closer to stock feel in your suspension. After a friend of mine got a body kit for his blazer back in high school, I never liked them. Wanted to tell him to rip it off of his truck. Well last week I bought the blazer off of him (will have pics of it up soon), and now I'm gonna do what I've always wanted to do! :D

    yeah, i agree. If you are going for custom, body drops are the way to go. Im going to do that to my BLAZER, and then sit it on the ground with bags. goin custom....

    !Body Kit!

    I for now will go for a body kit because i dont have a lot of money for a body drop but i do want a body drop in the future. and plus how much would a body drop come out for on a blazer?

    When it comes to cars I understand totaly but when English is used I'm LD. in other words I didn't get your "Q" MEX but I'll try.

    If your talking about money wise it will cost you about 2-3 grand at a shop or a few weeks or so at your hose if you are able to attack that kind of a job:eek: but as for how much to drop the body, I think 5.5 inches is a good standard to go off of b/c blazers have one big and ugly frame, its the only part of my whole damn ride I hate.

    :cool:A good looking frame, is one that is resting on ground.:cool:

    yeah, the only reason i want to do a body drop is because I want to be on the cover of magazines. If it werent for that, I would throw on a kit, lay the frame, and call it quits. because it is WAY too much work and money to body drop that damn thing. :)

    BlazinBlue said it! The frame is so nasty!! Everytime I see it I have to fight the urge to rip it apart and bodydrop it, because I'm to scared of totally fuckin up my pride and joy.

    Lightbulb BRAIN STORM!

    what do you think if you painted the frame with flat Black (like... 3 or more coats) or painting it with the stuff they use for spray in bedliners so it will look BLACK, CLEAN, AND NOT SO UGLY.

    Just an idea, whatcha think?:rolleyes:

    My friend did that for his full size lifted bronco :) I am not a big fan of the frame.

    His looks nice thou. 2 inch body lift, and 4 inch suspension. Fully painted undercarrage.

    Please dont paint your undercarrage
    haha :) We spent too much time with wire brush wheels getting rust, dirt and what else off.
