    THis summer i am going to try to get money to either do a 8 inch lift and 38 ground hawgs or a roll cage and a soft top. which one do you think i should do. i will probably end up doing the softop unless this pool job pays perrty good.

    I say do the roll cage first then go from there as money permits. I wouldn't want 8" lift and 38"s without a good cage.

    i take back what i said before.the truck will look nicer,but i guess in a rollover you would probably want the cage to wheel anether day.i dont know how sturdy the front windshield piller is to save you in a rollover.ive personnally never been in or seen a rollover from a first gen blazer.i hope i never do.

    Roll cage, Safety first. If you do the meats and lift you may not have anything left to work on after a roll.
