    It totally depends on how you use your truck.

    I love the BFG A/T's because, while they're a solid off road and snow tire, they are a great on road tire as well. I get great gas mileage with them. So if your truck pulls double duty as both a daily driver and your weekend rig (moderate off road), I think the BFGs are great.

    On the contrary, I have heard the Duratracs kick ass off road and in snow, but that gas mileage takes a hit if you use them as a daily driving on road tire. Can anyone speak to this?

    I put the Hankook DynaPro ATM's on my Tacoma and I love them. Nice aggressive look, better than most all-terrains, but keeps a smooth quiet ride. They were also priced great

    I voted for the Duratracs, but i think you should look at the Dynapro ATMrf10's. I have them and I am very impressed having all over the South West and there a great on road tire and i have driven in some intense muddy logging roads and they have't let me down yet.

    i really like the nitto terra grapplers. i've put around 2000 miles on them thusfar and they ride incredible. some people have claimed to get over 70000 miles out of a set. anxious to see how mine perform after half that many miles. these tires are used mainly for street use with light off-road use once a week.(stream crossing and powerline climb then pre-cut double paths through the woods, nothing out of hand)

    the only reason im still leaning towards the procomp is because they have a 50000 mile treadwear warranty on them

    I had 18" Kuhmo KL21s on BBS when I got my truck, nice smooth ride but not so sure about snow so I went to a 16" Hankook Dynapro, the LT variety and love them.
