i heard on the fullsize fords you gotta mount the bumper an inch ahead for clearance .. well see tomorow, if they are decent shape ill pick 'em up either way and have 'em mounted for sunday.

l have 33 by 12.50s on my 90-f250 and dont rub at all.
l had a set of 38s on it once for half an houre and they only rubbing was trying to rip out the breaklines.



33s will be no problem

awesome good to hear, then i will hopefully be equipped with 33 m/ts on sunday.

ive got the i6 with 5speed as well, possibility of 4.10s cause i cant get much over a buck twenty on the freeway without maxing... so i think itll work out

i6 right on.
my truck is the 5.0L 5spd as well and with my 3.55s that is all my truck does to. 120 down hill hammer down.
you will have no trouble turning 33s. you will like em.

theres always a fuckin catch lol.
called the guy again, 3 of them are about 75-80% tread and one is about 40%.. he lowered the price to compensate.

wonderin if its worth it if i throw a lowball offer and pick up a different procomp mt down the road.

Ya i bought patch panels for my rusty box and then got two good trees with it so i bought a different solid box. First two times out = first two dents. [16]
I keep thinking i should do cab corners to take care of the rest of my rust but all that work and then hit a tree again.........................................
Is it really worth it?

thrillbilly
02-23-2009, 04:09 PM
