I've had 2 sets of Brigestone duler REVO's on my old truck and loved them. Not very noisey, great for the trail riding (mild off roading) i did and really well manared on the road. They get excellent ratings at tirerack also.

BF Goodrich KM2 not loud at all and gives it a great aggresive look

Went from BFG's to the Nitto Terra Grapplers. Not as loud, and I like the ride quality on and off road.

If I was buying tires based on your criteria (I can't believe some suggested M/T's for you!) - I'd probably get the Bridgestones people have been suggested because you can get them at Costco (which I like to get my tires at, except they no longer carry the BFG A/T in my area). The Nittos mentioned would be good too - they're quieter than the BFG's....

yes, and go with the certificates you'll be glad you did. I'll be replacing my BFG A/T's when they die in about 60k, and putting on the BFG KM2's

I drive an 08 4x4 Rugged Trail. I just bought General Grabber AT2's and I really like them. They seem to stop just as good if not better than the stock Rugged Trails and are significantly quieter. (could be placebo, but I am fine with that)
