contact patch has nothing to do when ur trying to slow down and stop heavier tires.

be weary of accelerate ball joint and general front end wear with a t-bar crank.

i feel ur pain though, cant decide what size rubber to run on sarahs truck. 32? 33s? 10.50? 11.50? 12.50? lift it? t-bar crank it? aaahhh

but yes, BFG ATs do last unless u like to do burn outs and off-road the hell out of them. mine lasted around 20,000 miles with the rear being 1/8 tread left and the front with 3/8 tread.

dad had a set and got 50,000 or so miles but remember im talking about fullsize f150s and not a ranger so ur milage should be better. he just got new meats put on and makes me regret gettin the mudders some time

I think It looks level: it rubs only if the wheel is at a certain angle and your hauling *** into a driveway. But I have had them on for 20,000+ miles and no problems

If you want other pictures just ask and I can take em for you

LIL BLUE has BFG 33 MT, they do not rub and the t-bars were never adjusted
nothing like stiffer torsion bars right out of the factory
woops... I could have had a Level II
get the 285 or 33 inch tires
worst case you have to trim a bit and crank the torsions
it's not as if it has not been done 100 times before
