    These pictures are taken a in the Dunes close to San Luis Rio Colorado which is about an hour from Calexico/Mexicali. You can drive all the way from there to the Golf Coast, it's a huge area, I almost felt like I was in the Paris Dakar rally :laugh:

    For a Blazer I would recommned minimum a 4"lift, rear locker and 33" tires to feel comfortable. Also, don't go alone, if you get stuck or break down it could be a while before somebody comes by.
    It's a cool place, I recommend it.

    Well as you can tell from the pictures it's actually not that heavy anymore since I took off the top, doors, tailgate, bumpers, interior is stripped and I have the super lightweight high dollar aluminum drivetrain(350 tranny with NP208) :rolleyes: :D

    Besides that I run only about 6 psi in my tires, I have 35/1250 BFG's mounted on narrow stock steel wheels and so far I have not had any trouble with loosing a bead, I just try to not turn too hard at high speed.

    By the way,I sold the Blazer that is described in my signature if you wonder why it doesn't match what I just wrote above.
