Thank you TACOMABOSS,
I'm not sure if its European or Canadian (the dealer said the truck came from Canada) or Lebanese since it was driven for a few years in Lebanon (Middle East) before I got it.

Naturaly, the next step was to test the thing, nothing too extreme, just some soft offroading:

I was hesitating about which tires to get.
I was thinking first about the BF Goodrich KM2s then I heard that they did not perform well on snow, and i just could not afford to build a monster that would let me down on snow :S
So I went with the STTs , since I was advised that they would perform better on the diverse terrain that we have here; rocks, snow and mud.
I like them till now.

I was told they preform the same. I was looking at the km2s also but went with the STT because of the price.

She has been around :S 196,000 miles , this is what is not conforting me the most.
Its my first truck, so I'm not sure how long their engines last.
But I know that I will only be buying tacos from now on and that all the mods on her will move to the new one, (years from now I hope)

Around here both are aprox the same price, I even got a slightly better deal on the BFs.
What I meant is that I have installed the tires only last week and till now they are performing great on asphalt and offroad.
