    I think the Dune Grapplers are more designed for "sandy" conditions offroad. I can't say on snow since I don't get any, but the Terra Grapplers are great on all the other surfaces I have around North Georgia. I remember checking Consumer Reports before I bought mine and they were rated very high with the Toyo Open Country right behind them. Good looking and a good price. I'll see if I can copy the CR rating from my online account and post it for ya. I don't know if the Dune model made it on the list but it should be the same.

    Here is the latest Consumer Reports ratings for AT light truck tires for what it's worth. I remember now, I chose the Titto's over the Toyo's or any other that made the list because they looked more aggressive IMO.

    EDIT: (The report got all jacked up when I posted it, I'll print it out then scan it and repost.)

    I had to replace them about 3 months ago or so...

    I miss the hell out of my coopers though and when these wear out, I'm going back... :D
