looking at the picture thread

i think it would be just fine. my toyota has about the same wheel base as a blazer (108") and slightly wider axles (69"). it fits fine except if i try to go up the center of winch hill 3. i have seen many people get wedged in there in a bad way, me being one of them. i'd say give the trail a shot. it is a great trail and i hope it stays that way for a long time.

Full size Blazers can fit but it really helps if you have low gearing so you can crawl the tight spots otherwise expect to hit some stuff. I have and have cut off the stuff I smashed. Here's the result:

I have taken my full bodied blazer thru that trail several times. I do have rocker sliders and some body protection and still took a little damage, though it was not bad at all. I tried many of the harder lines and got rejected at the squeeze. Tried a few lines but did not feel like floping or dragging it thru on the roof
