Before I bought these tires I searched on TW and the interwebs and didn't find much of a review thread... certainly not specific to a 1st gen Tacoma.
So I figured I'd start one since I just put them on my truck. I will continually update as the mileage progresses, encounter variable driving conditions and go off road.

After driving to and from Discount Tire twice on them, for a total of 5 miles-ish, I can already honestly say these are insanely quiet tires. I've never experienced anything like this in any of my trucks or Legacy GT.
Since 1994 I've been running BFG ATs on my truck and Bronco so this is a new departure for me.
So far they are incredibly smooth and quiet riding tire. Vastly different experience than the BFG ATs.
I am about to embark on a 750 mile road trip so I will get a much better understanding on how they perform on the highway, etc.
I am also excited to see how they handle off road, how low a tire pressure I can run on the trail and see how they handle the rain and snow.
As for the latter I'd imagine it's going to be better than the BFG ATs just based on the tread pattern and how there is a cleaning channel on every outside tread. Every other outside tread on the BFG ATs was blocked and didn't have a channel for snow, mud, etc to self-clean/clear (I don't know how else to explain it).
