Toyos get my vote. I love those and trail grapplers but think when it's time I'm going toyo. Just a hair more ba than the nittos. I like the bfgs and have run them before but I personally want a change. Haha my info has just made me realize I have no idea what I want. Good luck bro.

You thought about Mickey Thompsons? I have had both the MTZs and ATZs and love them both. I have the ATZs on my truck currently and have about 25k miles on them and they are even 50% worn yet. The tread is HUGE, looks good, works good, and lasts forever!

Then definitely check out the MTZs. They performed GREAT, but I can't really tell you how they last, as the truck was totaled with only about 4k miles on the tires. They still looked untouched and new, and I am not easy on my trucks

Try the Mickey T Baja Claw TTC's like me. They look mean as ****, wear really well, pull through ANYTHING ( A z71 with a 4 inch lift and 37 nittos couldn't follow me with my 2 inch level..) and have a really nice hum (not nearly as high pitched as mud grapplers, which suck). I've put 10k on mine and they still look fairly new. If you want something that doesn't wear as fast as a Super Swamper but will take you through basically whatever, this is your tire.

If you want hum, you won't get much of that from the Trail Grapplers. I think Mud Grapplers would look right at home on your truck.
