Default Need help/advice

right now i have a stock height 93 s10 4x4 and really enjoy offroading. i really really wanna do some riding but im afraid to go to some big trail ride or anything and hold up a group of people cause i cant go through certain things or have a harder time getting through it then other people. just dont wanna be an inconvience. but were can i go to play around. or anything like that. im hoping soon to throw a small lift on it and some 31s or 33s and then i wont mind going out and riding with a group but need somewhere for a stock vehicle but still can have fun and push her to the limits and see how far i can get.. thanks in advance

all three of the private off road parks are open for wheeling on weekends. Twisted trails, Rocks & Valleys, and bundy hill dont have an event every weekend. Silver lake, mounds, st helen all are legal areas that a stock rig can mess around on.

You will have a blast in your stock s10 at any of the parks,especialy if you are with a few freinds in case of a break down/stuck.
I would look for cheap xj if you want to lift something.
Nothing against s10s,ive had at least a dozen,some with small blocks in them.they are great stock and hold up really well but unless you put a solid axle under the front your limited to about a 32" tire and you will be replacing ball joints often,and i blew up a lot of front drive shafts.
Take your s10 to any of the parks,see what its about.then start saving your money for some sticky 31s for your s10.

ive always wanted an s10 so now ive finally got exactly what i want except for all the rust that comes with a michigan vehicle. and if i had the cash i would buy an already lifted jeep or whatever and be good to go. but i cant afford it. so im hoping to just pick up a small lift and slap on the 33s i have sitting in hte garage and i plan on keeping it stock driveline and all. i dont plan on doing any crazy climbing or tweaking just a little fun for right now. later down the road i might upgrade but for right now shes perfectly fine lol just want somewhere to play

Make sure you have good/easy to use tow points. Recovery is just half the fun.

haha thanks. there are little points up front but i think im gonna get some large shackles and through them up front and at points in the back. or bolt/weld something inside the bed so if i get really stuck i can climb in the bed and hook up and get pulled out. i havent really pushed any of my vehicles hard enough that ive needed to be pulled out of anything...... (knock on wood) so im hoping when i do get stuck it wont be to bad lol
