i see your point, its a very good one, when i had my bfgs on my ranger i had them siped for that reason alone, i have done the same thing with my 37s on my f250 ... siping helped alot on slick roads, but those mtrs are sure great on road + the off road ... love the MTRS, my bfgs are awesome too but when i get my actual lift im going with the mtr!

They already have a new BFG MT design in the works, Looks very similar to the Krawler. Which if it performs anything like the krawler does,it will hand every other MT on the market their asses

They are progressive so the more they compress the stiffer they get. So just choose a size and weight that will work.

I dont know the front fenderwell but it is 32" to the bottom of the door. its roughly 2" higher than when i tore it apart.

it was 11 from the tire to the fender, so that is 46" some im gonna say 48-49 inches now ???

No im going to try and mount mine seperate from the coils. I did some looking around and i think im going to be using these.

A550-55 for the rear (double)
and
A170-55 for the front(single)

Im thinking of using bumpcans for air bumps to make them adjustable. would be pretty much exactly like this...
