I don't mine road noise either but the ones that are louder such as swampers will last about half the life of other mud terrains. Check out cooper discover STT's also. they're the same as a toyo mud terrain

I'll never run anything other than a mud terrain on my truck

You don't need torsion keys to fit 33's. Just max your torsion bars.

aight, so heres my situation with my ranger. i got a deal with my grandad, sayin that if i can find him a 98-01 f150 supercab, hell gimme his 89 f150 5.0. i LOVE v8s, but i dont wanna ditch the ranger. my ranger gets right good mileage in my opinion. with the ranger, all i wanna do is fit 33s or 285s (32.8in) tires under it. but if i get the f150, i could give it slight lift, 33s, tru dual flowmasters or strait pipes, and that bitch will ROAR. wat yall think i should do

well ive decided to keep the ranger. now back to the age old question: how to F'in lift the mo fo. I hate torsion bars cuz theyre such a pain in the ass to lift. Superlift only makes it for my year truck and its 1700. thatll burn a hole in my wallet haha
