I used the very bottom one. i'll get measurements asap, gonna ride it out tomorrow and let it settle.

and for time, the keys took about an hour a side bymyself and the shackles about the same , more like 45 min with my bro helping me....grand total for everything, about 220 bucks.....thats with Number 1 bars.

33x12.50 will never fit 'comfortably' on a stock truck. Cooke15 was running stock 08 torsion components, cranked bars, shackles and 33's....He reported no rubbing on 15x8 rims.

eh.....idk about those. I had a set in 31x10.50....HORRIBLE hydroplaning issues on the freeway at high speeds(70mph). Scared me to death. They were sipped from the factory AND siped from the tire shop. My un-siped Good year MTR's and BFG M/Ts were FAR Superior to the toyo opencountrys. And M/T's have a bad rep for being aweful in rain.
