    And have you lifted it?

    Do you take it on trails?

    Will a stock 95 S10 2WD hold up on easy trails or am I gonna break something just doing donuts in the grass at the local highschool?

    hmm hmm hmm?

    I have a nissan hardbody. it is a 4cyl, unfortunaely, but I have larger tires, gears, and a locker in the rear for messing about in the dirt.

    the locker helps out a lot, especially for climbing rocky hills. I haven't gotten stuck with it yet. I do want to test my truck out in the mud, but I had gotten my locker after winter...

    my truck is still in stock form, but I will get a suspension lift pretty soon. I have only jumped my truck once, well not really a jump, it was more like you go over a hill at a high speed, and the truck raises off the ground just a bit.

    one last thing, I dont abuse my truck... and I know its limits.

    the locker was about $500, and the gears I purchased used from a private seller. nissan doesn't have a big after market, so these were a little more expensive than for other makes.

    I had 14's so I had to upgrade to 15's. I got 15 inch factory alloys and some 30's...

    Nice.

    I was thinking of maybe putting a small lift on my truck. Suspension, not body. Just enough to put 30's on my stock 15" rims.

    I like the factory rim look, since it doesn't move the tire/rim combo outside of the wheel well. although, I don't know how the suspension lift will fair since I think it brings the spindle closer to the frame, maybe causing some tire rubbing

    i have a 2000 Toyota Tundra , 2WD but still bad ass.

    i went to some tuff trails , but it comes down to how big ur tires are , and how willing you are to throw it around to survive in some of the shit i went thru,

    and going on trials ur unsure of, bring a 4X4 buddy for assurence..
