Do you have any pics of the striper?

You know that tire up there on the roof rack is just killing your fuel economy. Do you have any pics of that blazer up to the windows in mud that would be cool.

I use the trailblazer. It's all I can afford right now, but then again it can tow 6600 lbs easily. The I6 in it is a powerhouse, 275hp and 275 ft lbs of torque. The tire was down under the rear which killed my approach angle when offroad. But it doesn't seem to make too much of an impact on my mpg. As far as up to the windows in mud.. No I don't however I do have some muddy pics of it. It's actually a 2wd, but I get around offroad.

This was from my last camping trip, nothing too rough but still had fun.


This was probably one of the muddiest I've gotten the trailblazer.


flooded trails? Not a problem.


up creek beds? Yep, can do that too.


I make do with 2wd.
