pretty much anything will be better than those crapyears. i hate those tires with a passion. Im a BFG guy and the AT is an awesome tire but i have a set of Firestone destinations on my F-150 that are also awesome and alot cheaper than the BFG's.

the newer Rangers (I don't know how new) can be adjusted for like 60 bucks at the dealer by doing something in the computer. I was gonna put 33's on my 2010 and they said they could adjust the computer for the tires and calibrate it or something.
