    I think you speek french to me!!! lol

    since you sound like you just are getting into the sport, it is best to start small.

    you could buy a truck, give it a large suspention lift, new tires winchs lockers, one ton axles, and all that good stuff just to find out you dont like the sport (not likely)


    I would recomend you find a desent truck and pay for the no rust ones here in canada, rust wll always follow you especely old chevy rust lol.

    a small suspention lift (2-4") can be had for cheap and installed your self with a few tools, or done by a shop. some small tire that wont call for gear changes just yet, and an investment in some off road recovery equipment is a must.

    some tow straps, good mounting points on the truck, a hi-lift jack,shovel ect.

    and some friends, people here will help you with any problem you have, but you need some people to go out on the trails with and learn a few things on hand.

    good luck

    I already had a 4runner stock and made offroad with it, it was so fun! hehe.. But i was involved in a onstreet accident and it was a total lost. Now i want a Blazer old years cause i like the power and the truck itself. I think 6 inch and 38 tire would satisfied me. Would i need other modification? Like the gear i think... what else is nessesary?
