parts question

if I were to get an s-10 blazer, one of the older ones like a '90 or something with the 4.3L would it be worth putting a couple bucks into, and what do they make for lifts and stuff for them? anything? or should i set my sights on something different.

The S10's frame is alot more rigid than the fullsize frame, its boxed in the front half compared to the fullsize which is all C channel. IMO id keep the engine, tranny and t-case...swap in a solid front axle and bigger rear axle and you got a decent rig.
