    The camo truck is a M1008 CUCV with 10" lift and 395/85R20 Michelin XMLs. The blue truck is a 79 K10 with 8" lift and 19.5x44-15 Boggers. Believe it or not, when the CUCV is finished, it will be my daily driver. The blue one is for offroad.

    Them Michelins look taller than 46". Look at the side by side pic of the two trucks and you can clearly see the Michelins are at least 4" or 5" taller than the 44" Boggers. :thinking:

    you can literally walk out onto your trucks roof from the 2nd story window. that is simply awesome...

    btw, those 46s do look much taller than the 44s... the 44s more than likly run smaller than 44" tall, but maybe the 46s run a couple inches higher...

    I noticed those tires are off of a military LMTV, so while i was down in the motropool i grabbed a messuring tape and messured from top to bottom, it comes out to 48 inches. Crazy, looks nice man!

    Thanks to hurricane Katrina, I've worked the last 2 1/2 weeks straight with no end in sight so the truck isn't finished. The gatorade bottles are zip tied to the brake hoses that I took loose to catch drips. The hard lines coming through the frame have the same thing on them. Also, the 44's on the blue truck are on 15x10 Allied beadlocks and measure 42 1/2" tall mounted on the truck with 12 psi. The 46's are on 20x9 Procomp 1079's and measure 46 1/2" on the truck with 20 psi.

    That CUCV is nothing short of sick. Hope you get some time soon to finish it.

    What does your truck weight? do you think your bearings will last? I have been thinking bout some for my blazer but I am worried about the bearing. Lwt us know how they ride.

    The truck weighs about 6200 lbs. I really don't think these tires will be that bad on bearings since the wheels have zero offset. I'll update on the ride later, but the 11.00R16 Michelin XLs I ran before rode smooth and I expect these to do the same.
