Here's another vote for the General Grabber AT2. Much prefer them to bfgs they replaced.

^^ this. I have to AT2 just put them on about 2 months ago and I cannot complain about a thing. Also they have the white lettering. The grappers are so far excellent and they are one heck of an upgrade over stock.

I run Duratrac load range C in a 265/75/16. I really like them. Discount accidently but the Kevlar MTRs on in Es. I ran them for almost a month. Very aggressive and noisy. I beat the crap out of them on the ranch one weekend. There were not what I needed on a 2wd. Now 4x4 would have been different. I could have kept them at the AT price. It was tempting.

UCA, fenders, and most likely the cab mount. Even with a 3" lift people usually rub on those same places. A stock truck would be even worse.

Had the BFGs on my 02 access cab. They were nice. Got 54,000 out of em. However, I replaced them with the w/General Grabber AT2's (price difference, similar tread) and those were much better in my opinion. Got 93,000 out of the those, rotating every other oil change.

How about Mickey Thompsons Baja ATZ. They cost the same.
I just put on and they're great, good tire all around minimal noise.

thanks i plan to try them once i lift my truck and add spacers. fortunately a family friend owns a tire shop so he said he would let me try out some 285"s for a day or so then make the decision
