    Could someone who has some 44" swampers or boggers tell me what the actual height of them mounted on your truck is? Preferably on a 16.5x14 wheel. If not then could you tell me what wheel your using.

    Well, you'll have to figure that a regular 44 inch tire is mounted on a 15 inch rim, so with a 16.5 it's gonna be more like a 45.5" tire. Lol just kidding someone at work told me that one time. My 44" boggers on 16.5" rims measure just under 43", that is with 24 psi or so

    My 18.5 x 44 TSL's on my 7060 lb truck measured just over 43" at 25psi when they were brand new.
