I have no first hand experience with this. I am just going off of what I think I remember my dad telling me when he was upgrading his TJ.

I can offer no help with the tires, I have only run BFG Mud Terrains and ProComp Xtreme Mud Terrains... both of which I am very happy with.
Well thank you! I have a 2inch fabtec lift so that should help me out

yomondo You'll probably get more response if you post this question in the Tires & Wheels Forum. But do a search there first if you haven't already. Tires have been discussed exhaustively. There's no "best choice". There's a trade-off for everything. Research and find out the pros and cons of each tire, then decide what features are more important to you based on how you plan to use the tires.

banks316 I would go with swamper iroks, they were my first set of tires for my YJ. I was happy with them. Toyos are pavement pounders the will suck off road compared to other brands like BFG, GY, Swampers

I don't do much mudding, tire suck at cleaning themselves out.
