They did amazing on my truck (was unstoppable)...no idea on a Jeep (much shorter wheelbase, lighter weight, etc).

Have heard they suck in the mud...never tried it myself. They'll last a heck of a long time...mine barely looked worn after 20,000 miles.

I have a set on my truck ('99 4x4 F150). With 30,000 on them, they look like they should last till 50 or even 60,000.

With all the siping, the tires do great in the snow/ice! And yes, they do suck in the mud, even when aired down. The best thing you can do is keep them spinning as fast as possible to help clean out the small lugs/shoulders.

And I will say this, they're the best A/T's I've ever run, period.

I have run BFG AT KO (and before they were KO) on every truck Ive ever had.(quite a few)

they won me over when the first set I bought lasted FOREVER.

True statement that they arent the best mud tire... but keep em spinning as mentioned and they work OK.

I would recommend them on any 4X4...

However...

they are LOUD and after about 15,000 miles they develop this recycling "howl". this is consistent in the 6 sets Ive owned.

Its fine to me because they are alot quieter than the Boggers I ran on my last truck, and I know the value of a AT tire... My wife had them on her durango and the only complaint she had was the noise.

Snow and Ice are no problem for these tires.

I think you'll be happy with them on a Jeep

I have these tires on our 05 Rubicon and love them. Traded a set of wore out TSL Super Swampers, these had 312 miles on them. He said he missed the roar of Super Swampers. Here in Tn you have mud, rock, sand, stumps,and roots and they are an excellent all purpose tire.

I have 31s----so not sure how relevant to your situation------I am on my 3rd set.

The original tire on my '04 was a Good Year--they were wore out at 25K. (I bought the Jeep with about 20K on it)

I installed BFG's---the jeep is at 145K and change for mileage now--3rd set has been on there a year and look great. I have never got stuck in snow that I couldn't drive/rock myself out of the mess.

For mud---"the skinny pedal on the right is my friend" ---but feel most tires are like that in the mud---- wheel speed is critical.

I keep buying them because I like them. my .02

Ive run them on an '89 Ranger (33s), a '95 Grand Cherokee (31s), a '97 Dakota (32s) and now on my '04 LJ (31s). Never had problems with snow.
The BFG A/Ts wear like iron. My Dakota had 215k miles on it when the tornado destroyed it. I bought it new and it was only on it's 4th set of BFGs.

I had three sets on my Nissan Hardbody 4wd with 145k when a lady t-boned me at a light. The BFG AT's didn't last as long, even with regular rotations and alignments. I might have just got a bad set because prior to that I got 40-45k out of them.

My jeep is at 34k miles and I know that the previous owner did all the mods before it was at 200 miles. They still have plenty of tread left, and they're probably the best all terrain tire around.
