Default Tbar crank+shackles?

Was just wondering if i could get enough height in the front off a tbar crank to add shackles to raise the rear? If not what should i do in addition to the tbar crank in the front?

ok thank you for that info


if all im going to do is crank the tbars- would 30x9.50 or 31 10.50 be a best bet for a daily driver

I'd go 31x10.50 or a max of 32x11.50. 32x11.50 was AWESOME looking and got AWESOME mileage on my 4.0 5spd.....but I had 4.10's. I'd still do 32x11.50's.

What's your current tire size?

Yeah, 31's may be best, but I know alot of folks run 33's with 3.73's and some even run 35's too. That 4.0 OHV can overcome larger tires alot easier than my 4.0 SOHC.
