i know this has nothing to do with the thread but i was wondering your opinions on yukes truck, i have pretty much the same truck except mines the 4.0 but anyways i want the same amount of lift his truck had but should i go for 33s like hes got or 35s? i like the look of both but cant really decide. goin 33s would be cheaper from tire price and gears but......... well 35s are just bad ***, even though that truck is just as bad *** with 33s. cant decide

I don't like them on any trucks, they look dumb IMO (don't take it personally anyone).

Mudrangers (sp) looks good on his truck. Thats about the only one I seen I really liked. But if you want one, then get one. Dont let us decide what you like and dont like.

i have a choice of 2. one rusty black one and one rusty chrome bar. the chrome roll bar would be free or cheap and my dumb friend said the black one would be $30. both will have to be sanded painted and shortened. the thing holding me back from it is i probably wont be able to put the 4wheeler in the bed. it wont hurt to try i think. i could at the worst make my money back and sell it here.

if you get one like mine, the back 2 bars are held in with one bolt on the main hoop, i dont even bolt the back 2 to the bed so if i need to haul anything i can just take them out

id get one if i didnt run a cap. ive seen one once that could fold out into a ladder rack, i wouldnt go with big tires myself, it stresses too many thing, like ball joints, wheel bearings, ect. and to do it right you need to regear, it would cost me over 1,000 to do that in parts and tools alone, it just wouldnt be worth it to me. sure it looks cool, but that much money spent on something thats going to cause premature wear issues had better well have a purpose/be worth it. for what i do the stock tires and gearing do just fine. your results may vary.
