I have been running BFG AT's on my F250 FX4 Supercab for the past several years. I have been very happy with them. I think they perform well on the highway as well as off-road. They have a more aggressive tread than the stock tires that came on my FX4. As soon as I wore the stock tires out, I put BFG AT's on it about 100,000 miles ago. I had ran BFG AT's on my previous 1/2 ton pickup and on my Jeep Cherokee before that. Always had good experiences with those tires.
I have BFG AT/KO on my wife's FJ, I also have had them on a Willys Wagon and a CJ.
I was all set to put them on my Tundra about three years ago and the salesperson at Tire Factory talked me into Goodyear Durotrac.
After about 10K I was so impressed that I put a set on my daughter's Z71 Silverado.
I have run the crap out of my truck during the last three years to the tune of over 25K per year.
The tires have about 80K on them with regular rotations and one repair.
I will not need to get a new set until right before hunting season and that should be at least another 15K.
My kid has not faired quite so well (not rotating them as she should) but I haven't heard anything about new tires.
I will be getting the Duros in the fall. The AT/KOs on the FJ are original as well and they are at 60K so both are pretty good tires.

I had dura tracks on a 3500 cummins that did pretty well. A lot less road noise than the Toyos. But not quite as meaty. I remember ripping a few treads off in the rocks. But a pretty good tire and cheaper than the Toyos.
I have Cooper Discoverer A/T3's on my powerstroke rightnow that I have been real happy with. I have run BFG A/T's and been happy with them too. My girlfriend has Toyo A/T's and they have been good too. All are good tires. If your towing alot you might want to go with a 10 ply (load range E), otherwise an 8 ply will be fine.
"Now two flags fly above my land that really sum up how I fee. One is the colors that fly high and proud The red, the white, the blue. The other one's got a rattlesnake With a simple statement made "Don't tread on me" is what it says and I'll take that to my grave. Because this is me. I'm proud to be American and strong in my beliefs. And I've said it before but I'll say it again 'Cause my family's always fought and died to save this land. And a country boy is all I'll ever be."
Her- " babe, I don't need mud terrains on my car, I don't go off-roading like you do"
Me- "but if I do ever get stuck, your first on the speed dial. I need you to have tread".

I had the Michelin LTX AT2 on my truck and really did not like them. My last two trucks have had Goodyear DuraTrac and they have been awesome. Highly recommended.
I forgot about the duratrac tires. Had those on a gas engine 2500. they were wearing pretty good, but they have a lot of noise on the highway. I also noticed that if I didn't run the tires full I could feel some "sway" on the highway. I'm guessing running high pressure helps stiffen the sidewall, but I hate running my 10 ply tires at 80 all the time. Other than that they were pretty good
Now therefore, please take your weapons, your quiver and your bow, and go out to the field and hunt game for me.
