Please post again once your SAS is done then maybe you'll actually be going "hard" lol
He didn't choose the hard life, the hard life chose him lol. I'm sure he'll go real hard with that d30

You don't need anything more than stock to run your truck hard. Oh wait, this is ranger-forums. The forum of morons and idiots. I almost forgot.

Yes, my blue rims look stupid as ****. I don't deny that at all. But function over form. Steelies were rusting. All I had was blue, so I did what I had to.

All I'm saying is I tore through bfg's. I used but love them. Then I tried something different, and was blown away by how bad they really are. Most overrated tires out there.

But you guys can keep living in your dream world. I won't try and wake you up anymore. Carry on.

But you havent run the new BFG A/T so you shouldn't have an opinion on them. You are that guy that owned a 1980 F-150 that broke down all the time and now talks **** on all F-150s

You're right, but its basically the same tread pattern. Which also sucks.

And killing tires because their rubber compund is junk, and having a lemon f150 is completely different.

You mean another forum with the exact same members and sheep as this place? No thanks.

I also love how you guys all gang up on someone simply because they give facts on a tire that you all think was sent to earth by god himself.

Wake up and maybe you'll realize there are better options out there. I sure did.

Lol. This whole thread is way off topic so I'll put it somewhat back. Lol.

I wanted to get some Firestone mts but my local shop doesn't have them so I ended up getting some really aggressive off brand mt. 33x12.5 15 I will get pictures Monday when they come in.

And btw. Bfg km2's are bad *** my dad use to have them on his jeep he rock crawled and never had a sidewall issue.

The best thing we can do is to just ignore him. He's the biggest baby on this site.

For right now I'm getting 33s. Going to wait for warm weather and sunshine to do a body lift and then I'll get some 35's ordered. So in the meantime for something else to do I ordered a 40" light bar.



Pretty pumped I only paid 110 for it so I'm hoping I like it. Still debating on how to mount it. Above the windshield, on top front bumper, below front bumper. Any thoughts/pictures?

Did you get it off amazon? If so, my buddy has one of those and so far it's holding up well and it's pretty damn bright

What part are they having to seal? Where the lens connects to the light housing?

Well if you do run into that problem, it probably wouldn't be too hard at all to fix. And the price isn't bad at all

I bought a 50" curved one on Amazon last month. Haven't mounted it yet, but it seems really sturdy. I plan to run a bead of sealant around the lens/housing seam before I mount it up. I bought windshield mounts from mcmfab.com

For a 40" bar? Seems kinda big for a bumper mount.

There's no way I'd mount a bar like that under the bumper. You're just asking for it to get ripped off.
