      i know the trend is the biggest tires you can fit with the least amount of lift to clear them.... but this is rediculous

      i like it though, id take it.

      It's be cool if you could actually take it off road without those rediculous tires ripping your fenders right off. What's with the Avalanche sticker an the back?

      Man, it just looks small from the lack of fender well, until you go back and read that it has 46's on it!! WOW.

      Avalanche probly built the truck... Looks to me off hand like Michelin XML tires...could be wrong, but i think that's them... and my guess is Avalanche is using that truck to show of the new Trail Ready 20in beadlocks, which i believe are fairly recent, to come out... They list them as their own beadlock, but they're really Trail Ready rims... ALOT of their products come from other companies, but are rebadged, and upped price only to have the avalanche name...

      Oh, truck does look good though!

      BFGoodrich is probably just a sponsor.

      That truck was built for Petersons ultimate adventure of whom BFG was the official sponsor. The truck had alot of its fab work done at avalanche. The avalanche I believe is plasma cut into the rear pannel protection, not a sticker. It is running on michelin XML tires which are used on big military trucks. During the ultimate adventure it broke the front bumper, damaged the pass door, broke an axle shaft and the steering box had problems. It did trails in Cedar city, UT, Moab, UT including the helldorados. Also did the Alpine loop in colorado and montrose trails. It runs a dynatrac front pro rock 60, a dana 60 custom made for hi clearence competition applications.
