I went to some tire shops around here, and they said I wouldn't be able to fit 32's without any lift. The highest they said I could go was 31x10.50. I thought I was able to fit 32''s stock? Also, If I were to get my torsion bar cranked, would the ride be any different?

the ride wont change that much if you crank em, do about 3-4 turns to level em and you can fit 33's stock. they tried telling me that and I told em to try it, they were amazed lol then I told em I had 5 inches of lift and they kinda looked down... dumbasses... tell em to do it anyway, its their job

Is it really necessary to have 3 threads about the same thing? Plus more on another forum? How many different ways do you need it spelled out? THEY WILL FIT. PERIOD.

Noobs...

Search first. Contain questions about the same problem in one thread after a thorough search has been completed. Go into the shop having knowledge about your vehicle and you will make them look stupid and not the other way around. They will fit, if they dont want to try, take your business and money elsewhere.

Yeah they will fit. Just tell the shop to give it a try, you know multiple trucks that are running the same thing.

The shop said the same thing when I put 32s on my Ranger and the same thing when I put 35s on my 150. Fit everytime

I've never done one and my dad and I did it. Took us a weekend and didn't really have any problems. If you can read and turn a ratchet, you can probably do it.
