On the front tires, would it be better to have a little toe in or toe out? Or would completely straight be the best for anything above a 33" tire. I thought in one post one guy had toe in and the other had toe out for larger tires. I would think straight is what the alignment shop would try and do. Any ideas?

You will definately want toe-in. Toe-in helps prevent death-wobble, among other things. Haynes manual has the amount of toe-in requuired. For 33" tires, you may want to overdo it slightly. I set mine to spec with 33" tires. Runs great at all speeds.

Toe out is what I have now and it definatly is darty and twitchy... I will Check the amount tonite and do the toe in. Where is it in the HAYES manual, I have looked, but can't find it. Should be under the steering seciton right? Anyone have the Specs? I will try the 1/8" in.
