Can you do the mud pitts with a stock S10blazer? I want to go but dont want to be stuck the whole day. My buddy wants to go and watch, do people actually do that?

Thanks

Ya, you can roll around at Stave stock. For the most part you can avoid the bad mud and just sit back and watch the big boys play. I don't care what gets said about Stave, it's still fun to go watch.

nope this isnt lawrence, but i think we may go and watch one day, probably sunday(hoping). We'll be in my buddies truck brown jimmys15 with the wood on the side. Hasnt takin the wood off yet or painted it(summer). But hey it's a 4x4, thats all that matters.

Yes a stock S-10 Blazer can do just fine out at Stave. I was out there with friends and that is what they drive. It actually got stuck less than my truck. I guess geing lighter helps a little. Just stay out of the really deep stuff and you will be fine

Getting stuck is less than 1/2 the issue.

How high are the diff breathers? Anything else that needs attention to keep out the mud/water? Auto tranny?

Mud will be the death of your drive-train and bearings if you don't clean up and lube properly afterwards.

Gee, am I sounding like a Dad, or what? Sorry. Have fun playing in the mud!

I have only gond and played in the mud once and doubt I will do it very often. It is fun, but cleaning the crap out of the drivetrain after is a giant hassle.

not really hard, just anoying. Depending on where your dif vents are you may have gotten water in the difs, so the dif fluid might have to be changed. Wheel bearings should be re-packed(mud gets in there), drum brakes have to be cleaned, I have drums on all 4 so I pretty much loose all my braking ability when I go in mud. all the u-joints and other greasable things under your truck should be greased, rad sometime needs to be cleaned(mud can clog it up so air cant flow through it) engine needs to be cleaned(mud cakes on the engine and can cause overheating, the underside of the truck should also be cleaned so you don't drop chunks as you drive down the freeway.....

anything I missed?

That's about it. The mud is fun, but I wouldn't want to go there too often.
