Finally Cranked the T-Bars!

Had a nice afternoon, and cranked the t-bars today. I love the results, but may have to go a little more. Wound up doing a total of 3.5 turns.

Thanks, guys! I'm thinking I have t go with the 32's now. Haven't spent much time looking at tires, but plan to now.

The ride is sweet. It's shocking how much difference that little bit of lift on the front end makes to the entire truck. Not sure about how long till they sag. I got the type 1, so I guess we'll see.

Again, thanks!

Looks much better! Michael. Make sure you take the seats in her Mountaineer and put them in your truck.
