Sorry to drift off topic, but I'm liking the Warthog - that is on beast of a bird.
I'd say go with the Swampers [Interco = American, based in Louisiana], but you may be pushing the side clearance limits with a 13.50. You may also want to take a look at similar purpose tires from General, Good Year, and Cooper as a few other American brands (though hardly any of the stuff is produced on our soil). I'll also admit that BF Goodrich KM2s are solid [French: Michelin].
I'm on the Jeep Forum and lots of guys over there run TSL Swampers and Thornbirds - cousins to the M16s and I hear nothing but positives regarding sidewall durability and traction, though they are not cheap and are supposed to be relatively loud on the highway. Interco claims that it rides like an A/T on the freeway, but I've never known their lineup to be decsribed as "smooth" - I'd be interested to hear how they actually ride on pavement.
