      Well almost. 97 sport. Stock, not even a TT. 32 11.5 15's bridgestone deuler MT's fit perfect. had to cut one square inch of plastic. I don't have a digital camera so unfortunately no pics. But if I did have a pic, you probably wouldn't notice a difference. ANyways. tires work great so far. I had crap before for tires so can't give a worthwhile comparison.
      I will plan on doing the TT with shackles, jusst so there will be some clearance for snow and dirt.

      Thanks for the feedback.

      With my 1.75" TT and F150 Leaf mod plus a 2" BL, the 32s should not be an issue!.

      No rubbing or anything when turning. Although I hit a very large depression at about 70 and there was rubbing. But well, I was doing 70.

      Oh I have. The only thing that rubbed there was the plastic body gap cover. No big deal there. just push the plastic pins back in.
