It's kind of like when they announced Pluto wasn't a planet anymore. Everything you thought you knew just got thrown out the window. Now next time someone asks what the max tire size is on a stock 1st gen, we can say we know of a guy who stuffed 33's on his....
I was checking my fluids today, and went out of the garage for a breather.
Well, when I turned to go back in, something caught my eye and said "HEY! Look here and think for a second!"
Four0Sport's post about the 4" lift popped in my head, and I realized.... If I did lift her 4", She wouldn't fit in my garage! Oh how her new shoes propped her up enough to make her a BIG GIRL! They grow up so fast....
WOW, I might try dropping my body lift and run my 34 x 10.5's on only a 2" suspension lift. If you can stuff 33 x 9.5 with minimal rubbing I should be able to trim to fit some 34's with only a 2" lift.
I said "factory modified" not "factory lifted" They could have very well put larger tubs on some. Who knows? Ford is very sneaky like that.
I'm hopefully getting a job with a local dealership so I should be able to start modding/repairing the EX again in a few weeks. First mod it gets will also be a repair and that's going to be Off-road Performance shocks. The ones on it CAME FROM FORD! I noticed the ford stamp on them when I was under it the other day.
Now I'm rambling so I'm going to shut up and go find something to do lol.
