A buddy of mine has an OBS 3/4 ton truck. He put 285 Hankook Dynapro M/T's back in the fall of last yr. He cranked the bars up pretty much all the way b/c the truck has a plow on it, and when he'd use the plow in the winters it'd rub. He complained alittle about the ride, saying it was harsh and all, but dealt with it. Now, last week, the rear leaf spring on the pass. side broke at the front hanger eyelet. So he wants to lift the truck alittle more while replacing the rear leafs. He's been asking me about keys up front or new t-bars.

What keys could he run up front to allow more cranking??? Ford keys still, or not?? And, if not keys, what bars could he run on the 3/4 ton, Rough Country 1ton bars??? Keep in mind the truck has had a plow for some time now, he bought it that way, and they obviously have sagged over time.

What are his options?? He doesn't like the idea of BL's on OBS, b/c too much frame shows. And, doesn't want a full susp. lift.

Just looking for some info to pass on to him.

Thanks,
John

thanks.

Alright, I can pass that info on to him. I figured 1ton bars were probably his only option. How about any types of keys???? I know he'll ask about them, b/c he mentioned them before. Any thoughts?
