Nice...gotta love a muddy truck 8)
Do tell me what the difference is. I'm gonna venture a guess and say VORTEC is involved.

some differences are rims, tires, fender flares, bigger stance and they sit higher....i'm sure i'm missing a lot so, ooberdoob, could you name the rest?

Its not just a sticker!!

What Makes a ZR2 Different From a Regular S-10 ?

If you are wondering what makes a regular S-10 a RPO ZR2, the following is the list of the factory modifications:

*RPO ZR2 only full ladder-type frame with modified suspension mounting points which provide:

*100mm wider track (3.9 inches wider than regular S-10)

*Three-inch suspension height increase

*Enhanced front (7.25" ring gear) and rear (8.5" ring gear) axles w/ 3.73:1 rear-axle ratio

*Larger wheel and axle bearings

*31 x 10.5R-15 LT/C black wall off-road tires (BFG A/Ts on pickups and BFG Long Trails on BlaZeR2)

* 46mm gas pressurized Bilstein Monotube shocks

*Rear axle track bar (pickups) / rear sway bar (BlaZeR2)

*Wheel flares (black on S-10 pickups and BlaZeR2 / body-color on Sonoma pickups)

*33mm (early model) / 28mm (late model) front anti-sway bar

*Skid plates (Aluminum before MY99, Composite MY99+)

Is there any difference in the engine? Like a VORTEC 4.6L V6 or something like that?
How much better/worse does it handle than the regular S-10? I would tend to think better because of the suspension and wider stance, but it is a 'bit' taller.

well... i have limited expirience with other s10s, but i know it would out handle my dads 98 4cy reg cab like a champ. the engine was the same 4.3L vortec, but because of the ring gear changes it was easily as fast as a 2wd 4.3L.

it was really fun to drive, and somehow those tires lasted through 4x the abuse these have.
