    Re: Off Road Mirrors

    is there an exo cage to mount those on? or are you ripping the sheet metal off when they catch something?
    There are no problems. There are only solutions. It's your duty to determine the right one.

    would I be wrong to assume you either have an M1 Abrams tank or a Unimog rock crawler? Certainly heavy duty... Jim

    Off Road Mirrors

    I like that thereís some off-road enthusiast on here. Some one need to start a dedicated off-road thread on here. I have my f150 lifted with a camburg 2.5 lift kit, Fox shocks all around with a new upper a arm to take the stress off the ball joints. Rides like a dream.

    Every year we go to sliver lake sand dunes ( ORV park ). Lots of fun being right on Lake Michigan. You can play in the sand then cool down in the water.

    Nice. I had an F150 as a chase truck, but upgraded to a F250 V10. More power and such. A little background on my truck..2000 S10. Fully caged from the front bumper all the way to the spare tires in the back. All tied in, cab cage 360 welds, welded to the cab as it goes to the frame perches. I fabbed up a Custom "J" arm kit that pulls 15" travel while retaining the coil bucket. 3.5" over on both sides. As for the back, I cut the frame off right after the cab it is tubed chassis with bed cage. Deaver 67 pack in the back pulls 20" of travel. The engine cage, Cab cage and bed cage is all 4130. Within the next year or so I will cut up the front, eliminate the coil bucket, build a 5" over kit with Coil Overs and By-passes.
    Yes I concur on the Off Road Thread!!!!

    Here is ma baby in action. You have to show S10's a lot of love!! The chassis is actually a car chassis (Malibu). Very, very weak. That is why you don't see a lot of them built. To me it is totally worth it, you cant beat that 4.3lL Vortec!!!

    Thatís crazy what you did to that S10. I had two, a 1996 GMC extreme, and a 2002 GMC ZR2 (same thing as the S10) so yes, I can say they were good motors.

    Re: Off Road Mirrors

    My machinist friend has the extreme with the v6. He needed some errands ran and he let me use his truck. He actually lets me stay in his machine shop that’s a full blown automotive machine shop. Sometimes he does 10 engines at once lol. Any way I said I’ll go u stay. Lot of times I just stay but ran this one and it sure had power in that light little truck. Never opened it all the way up because it was wet out that day. I haven’t been there in about a month or more need to get over there!

    um... which generation frame are you speaking of? the first two generations where not car frames, they were fully boxed. Very popular to put a big v8 in them and drag them. can't speak for the 3rd gen.

    My problem with the 4.3L Vortec is the power to fuel mileage ratio :/

    Not sure, but yes at one time it was a malibu frame, Google it. It is only fully boxed from the front frame rails to just behind the cab..
