Well, I got my tires today. I had already decided against any type of MT. I am off the road with this truck very little, and when I am, its not in anything where an MT would be anymore beneficial than an AT. I did see a set of Dick Cepek FC II at the tire store today that I liked, but they were up in the same price range as the BFG, and they didn't have them in stock in 18". I went with Toyo 275/70 18, Open Country AT.
As I said, MT had been ruled out to begin with, too much road noise, and I don't put this truck in terrain that would make them a benifit. The Toyo, isn't quite as aggressive looking as I would like, but the price difference was enough to offset the pros/cons. I saved roughly $70 per tire, and thats enough to cover a big chunk of the Bully Dog downloader I am planning on getting. The Auto Spring lvling kit is already on order. Also, for some reason, my truck didn't have nerf bars on it when I got it. Don't know if it just didn't come with them, or if the previous owner took them off. So I want to get those on there soon too. After the Bully Dog of course
I do have a truck I am going to put MTs on. '88 F250 4x4 w/351. Will probably be looking at Maxxis for it, and a 3" lift. It has leaf springs front and back, so not sure what the lift will require for it. Its a hunting/play truck tho, so its on the back burner for now.
And I will post some pics when I get the leveling kit in hand, and installed.
