Tires

My bronc is an ex Levee Patrol Truck, when I look at it it looks higher than my roommates '90 bronc. Does ford offer a package that sends them out raised for parish use? I can't see anything ie. bodylift or suspension lift on the truck? Also, can I fit a 33x12.50 15, using AR15x10 rims? Some people tell me yes, others say no? And What gear ratio shoud/do I have? It's an '89 bronc 351 and c6 tranny?

Re: Tires

The only special suspension offering I have ever heard of before the "Off Road" one was just the heavy duty (about the same) with quad shocks in front. I don't even know if the trucks set at a different hieght in 89 for this (maybe someone else knows). I do know you will whack your fenders with 33x12.5 tires on 10 wheels. If you try 8 inch wheels you may have less rub on the fender, but, more on the radius arms. This info is based on keeping the stock backspacing with a stock suspension. The gears can be checked by looking at the tags on the diffs. A number like 3 08 or 3 55 (sometimes an L inbetween if limited slip) will indicate 3.08 or 3.55 gears. If you have 3.55 gears you should be okay for 33 inch tires (loose a little on take off and low end). As far as the controversy on wether or not you will hit or rub depends on how hard you drive-jump it or go fast on trails and you will hit-stay on the street and you may only get a little radius arm rubbing. Hope this helps. Laters.
