    I say start with adding some new front and rear bumpers. You will be surprised how that plastic shatters when you start to really hit the trails...

    Yeah, if you had a ladder frame under there to do a body lift I'd say to lift it first. Since you don't, I don't really think it will matter though. Are you making this more for show or go?

    I was at the local mall be me one day and drove past a local club meet n greet. They were a bunch of trailblazers. They all had 2-3 inch lifts and a few Custom bumpers. They looked good.

    search out Trailblazer on here, there are a couple of very nicely modded Trailblazers to give you inspiration
    '00 Dodge Dakota, modified gibson exhaust, AFE intake, Cobra CB, Astro Topper/Yakima rack system, Winch Ready front bumper, Milemarker E8000 winch, 4.10 gears, ssbc rear disc conversion, a few extra lights and a build that will never end.

    '00 Dakota

    New project, 2009 Kawasaki Versys, will be more of a street oriented expo vehicle, but it's still in the planning stages.

    I do have a ladder frame, I am btw building it for go just dont have that big of a budget to dedicated to the build the plan is 33"s 3 inch block up front 2 inch block and z71 tahoe springs in the rear then bilstein HDs all around wich i think is plenty for overlanding possible 3 inch body lift and 35"s after some armor. There are several trailblazers with up to 6 inch lifts and 35"s with stock axels and at least 3 sas conversions one on 44"s so there out there lol

    I love that you got the equipment to enjoy the outdoors before a lift and armor. Well done sir. =)
