If you just want to kick up sand and run once in a while,put some Sand Tires Unlimited 20's. If you want to compete and have the horsepower you 'll need some Supper Scoopers, but estimating by looking at your pic you'll need somewhere over 500hp to move the Scoopers effectively on that Blazer.

i guess generally speaking about racing on sand and sand draging your right. but if were talking general sand driving in 2wd you might end up like this guy.

Here is my RAM making rooster tales with 35" Baja Claws, So you Don't NEED paddles to do it, Although I'm sure they would make a much larger "show" :)

That's what I run,that's why I'm going for scoopers next year,just check all my pictures and you'll see how I twist them good ,actually the rims are spinning inside I put a mark and I always see it all the opposite.I'm going to sell them so let me know.

Nice vid! Man your truck has a bitchin sound to it.

Maybe this is the type of rooster tail you want? Then you need alot more $ in that blazer's motor,
Dam that bronco is wicked! Plus 2WD i think
