t bar crank and 32" tires

i have an 06 fx4 and was wanting to level it out with a t bar crank. if i do a t bar crank do i need to get my truck aligned? also how hard is this on my front end? i have the alcoa rims with 31's and i was thinking about putting 32's on it. has anyone else done this without lifting your truck? will they rub?

thanks for all your help in advance!

I have 32s with no lift and its fine, no rubbing. Trigger01 and RangerJustin both have 32s as well. Get your alignment checked after a tbar crank, just in case. Do it!

I have 32x11.50's with a t-bar crank, but I maxed mine, I also added aal's and shackles in the rear to make the truck a little higher all around. They say cranking, especially maxing out, you t-bars will wear them out quicker and cause them to sag, but I am willing to take the chance.

Yup, I have an 06 with 32s no lift no rub on day to day driving. Obviously it can when offroading.

Difficulty = Adjust two bolts, use a breaker bar if you can.
Alignment = Debated back and forth. Since I knew I would be keeping my truck a while I opted for a firestone lifetime alignment.

Jack up the front of the truck when you crank your t-bars and squirt the bolts with WD-40 and you'll be able to crank them pretty easily and shouldn't need a breaker bar.
