    I am looking into buying a set of these and just would like to see pics of them mounted on 10" wide rims and possibly a K5 or GM truck just for comparison. Give me your lift specs too.

    Thanks In Advance!

    Ken,

    I have the new 38" TrXus STS on my truck currently. Just want a more aggressive tire since my truck is Trail Only these days. I do drive the truck on the highway to and from my wheeling trips, but I drove on Boggers for over a year, so surely these 38.5s would be roughly (no pun intended) the same. Anyway, looking to go with these tires and wanted to see pics of them mounted.

    See the for sale boards for my TrXus tires.

    Mudzer yes he is running the 12 bolt rear and 10 bolt front, he has Warn shafts in the front and is looking at getting some ctm joints untill we either get Dana 60 fronts or say hell with it and get 2.5 ton rockwells front and rear.
