I'm currently running 33x12.50x15 Baja Claw Radials by Mickey Thompson. I'm going to down grade to a 33x10.50 for a better ride. Personally I want a deep all-terrain tire with Kevlar. I'm clueless as what to get. Give me all the knowledge you guys have and post some pics to make this thread more interesting. Thanks guys! All input will be appreciated.
IMO for what you are looking for thee only choice is the BFGs....I ran 3 sets on my TJ.....and never an issue.
But last OCT I went to The Duratracs in 33"s x12.5" x 15"s...and as good as the BFGs were, the Goodyears are that much better!! Don't get me wrong I liked the BFGs but I heard so much good about these Goodyears for so long I had to try em.
Now I am also aware of a "weak" sidewall but no issues yet.....the other concern is wear and balancing so far so good but it has only been about 6 months.
But again I think the BFGs are where you want to be!!
Maxxis Bighorns gave me death wobble long before they should have.
KM2's have been the best tires I've run so far... much more quiet on the hwy too.

If you wheel where there are any sharp rocks, it'd be very tough to beat the kevlar-reinforced Goodyear MT/R. I'm on my third set of them for my desert/rockcrawling needs and couldn't be happier with how they hold up, stick to the terrain, and withstand being cut. My old BFG MTs had very cut and puncture-prone sidewalls.

For a more street friendly tire with good offroad abilities, go with duratracs. I have 'em in 33x12.5s and love 'em. But next tire I go to will be 35x10.5 km2's. Skinnier tires do better in mud and snow. I live in florida and play in a lot of mud, but will be moving to colorado in the coming year so I want to be prepared for the snow and slush.
