Offroad Trailblazers and Envoys

What struts to buy...

Trailblazer and Envoy related, but not off-road related...

and another reason why i dont post on here very much at all.. just because someone doesnt go out and thrash their ride like you do isnt no reason to dismiss them or their questions.. some of us dont have "trails" to go on.. and yes some of us are out for more looks.. either way we all are apart of the same family and we should respect and help each other out even if we have different goals..

Especially since the platform is at least 7 years an older, there will be quite a few newer owners who may not wanna sacrifice luxury and form, but still want capability and function..

not saying you meant anything by it.. but it just comes across that if we are not down for any hardcore wheeling then we shouldn't be here..

just my .02


Let me lead by saying this, I'm no big shot here, not in charge of anything, and my opinion is worth exactly what you pay for it. :cheers:

If you don't want to go out and "thrash" your ride, there is a specific site for you, GMTnation. I don't go on Chevy forums and ask how to build my F100, I don't go on Pirate4x4 and ask about Trailblazer struts. I go to the appropriate corner of the web and research, read, then ask my questions if needed.

So, if you don't want to "thrash" your ride, and don't want to sacrifice luxury and form, this specific site isn't geared towards helping those people. Because thing's are a trade off, and my Trailblazer isn't as low, easy to get in and out of, doesn't get as good MPG, etc, as it did when it was stock. I have compromised the OE design, I've skewed it in favor of something that works for me.

I welcome everyone to come, see what thing's are about. See what kind of thing's a Trail/Voy can accomplish with a few mods. I'd welcome you to come on a trail with me, ride along, even let you drive.

But don't expect me to get on board with post's about how to fit 24's, add thirteen amps, put LED's all over everything, "stance", or how to make the thing ride like a Cadillac. That's simply not what this site is centered around.
