    Like I said, my friend just picked up a 1991 S-10 Blazer, he wanted me to post a few questions. I tried using the search but it takes sooo long to pull up answers.

    From what I have read, you can fit 31's stock, right?

    He wants to add a mild suspension lift, to better handle the 31's, which brand would you guys reccomend for a good on road ride, but one that can handle the trail well? Where can he buy the lift kits, and who offers the most complete kit?

    Also, where can I find a website that has installation tips?

    Crank up the torsion bars and put a rear shackle lift and he should be able to fit 31" tires. As far as lifts go, I've only seen Superlift and Trailmaster offer an S-10 4x4 lift kit. Superlift has a 2" for something like $635 and the Trailmaster is a 5" for about $1100. Both are kits that don't affect on-road ride because they contain lowering brackets for the suspension parts. IFS regardless isn't awesome on the trail, but I think these kits give you an extra inch or two of travel. He can mail order them or go to 4 Wheel Parts and get them ordered. Either one of the lifts are a good kit that are very complete. For more info, go to and talk in the 4x4 section of the forums.
