Needs more UP

Any reason you settle on those tires? Or just needed a more aggressive replacement?

Understood.......Also, I would avoid the keys. From MULTIPLE threads on this forum and others, the replacement keys put too much stress on the bars and can cause sag to occur if over tightened. Stock keys can give a 2" "safe" lift without causing excessive wear on the torsion bars.

It's a topic that has been debated many times before, but I just torqued my stock keys and gain a 2" lift. Slightly stiffer ride, but I have Goodyear Duratracs on too, so they are stiff to start with. Look around the site and read into the pros/cons of using keys vs just torquing the stock ones. You should be able to find a lot.

He has an 08 with the lower indexed keys. older torsion keys will get him up level with our trucks.

I just put BFG ATs on last week and like you pulled off Wranglers. I like the look of the solid white letters and the tires in general. Snowed here yesterday its nice to be able to at least move in 2wd. Its my 4th set of BFG ATs although first on the Ranger. I wish you could get p loads though, Rangers dont really need LTs but they should wear good on a little truck.
