Default Re: Minnesota

it comes out to 31.8" I believe. I wanted black out because when I'm up at school, I won't be able to clean it as much or the way I want to. And no BL in the future. I actually don't think I am going to lift this truck. It already has stock 2in blocks and after a tbar crank it will be good.

Steering and front wheel alignment are two different things.
When u say steering, I think u mean ur steering wheel isn't straight when ur wheels are straight.
Front end alignment fixes the angles of the tires, not left/right turning.
U don't want ur tires to have an angle like this \ /.

A good alignment will cost about $49-69.
And if u got your tires locally, the shop that sold them to u may give u a discount.
The Goodyear I got my duratracs gives me $20 off their listed price of $69.95.

Duratracs are amazing in snow. And I've.
Highly recommended tire for those of us who deal with snow
