    I'm going to guess something else is wrong. Cause there are folks that are running 6 inch lifts with no problems.

    SOmewhere else in the drive line there is a vibration or mis-alignment that is cause the wheel bearings to go out. What kind of rims do you have on the truck??

    well, the TOYO MTs are insanely heavy tires. They're probably 15lbs heavier than any other tire in that size. With that said, it should be easy to find a tire you like, just lighter. But I also agree that they shouldnt be causing that much of a problem. I know there are plenty of people running them without issue. What wheels are you running? A wheel that sticks out a lot is going to put a bunch more stress on everything, and maybe with the heavy tires thats where your issue is coming from.

    or another impressive TSB in the making if wheels are not super wide or have crazy offset.

    Oh, it is 4x4 or prerunner? Not sure if that would have any bearing on the bearings tho, lol.
