nice truck.. is that a plastic bedliner?? looks like it but maybe not.. wow and another ranger with KM2's... they are like dirty shirts, everyone's got them. i've seen them up close on a big *** early 90's F350 with a 460 in it, in rock creek BC. talked to the guy and he likes them too.. i personally want TSL's or something similiar.

Truck looks sick man, but I like it with no niteshade on the tails...a little bit of contrast back there does wonders

the AT's I had on before were terrible. They had gone thru 2 different trucks before they came to me so they were hard to allign and balance. They were bald, vibrated my whole truck on the highway and tracked all over the road. The km2s are way nicer so far. They are perfectly alligned and balanced and only have minimal tracking on the road (to be expected from a 12.5"). There pretty quiet and smooth for a MT..at slow speeds you really notice that there muds but once im moving they seem fine.

nice and clean!!! looks great!!

have you had a change to test out the km2s at all?? flawless preformance!! and yea like you say .. a bit of road noise at slow speeds but nothing too major once you get going..

as for your torsion bars.. you could definatly go a little higher.. i believe even maxed bars shouldnt have a problem with cv angles and whatnot.. only thing youll start to lose when you crank more is a bit of ride quality...

either way.. looks badass!!

any idea what backspacing you have?? truck has a real nice stance to it!

thanks man.. glad you like it. I have a 15x8 rim with 3.75" BS. I have the fabtech 3" spindle lift so that also pushes the tires out more. And I think Im gonna crank up the t-bars a little more and put a 1.5" shackle in the back

whats a recommended psi for the 33x12.5 mudders on a 15x8 rim. Right now im running around 32-33psi (cant seem to get the same result from the different gauges im trying) and it still looks like the outside tread isnt in contact with the road

thats the "recommended" tire pressure.. drop it down a couple psi's and see what if the outside is touching the road.

Needing an opinion!. Im not really liking how low the truck sits right now. Rather than cranking the t-bars and putting shackles in the back i was thinking of uncranking the t-bars 1" to match the rear and putting a 3" body on. I plan to eventually put 35's on but that would be awhile down the road when the 33 km2's wear out. How do u think it would look with the 33's and double lift? Since its an 08 and it already sits low im thinkin it will still look pretty proportionate with this set up.

OPINIONS??
