I use it for everyday driving, I work in the coal mines and drive it to work and pretty much just anywhere I go. I do need some good tires for snow for getting to work, I have to drive up in the mountain to get to work. Its pretty steep but mostly pavement. Im wanting new tires also.

Cooper Discoverer - i used them on snow, very cold, mountain roads (pretty much the same you need) and worked perfect.

BFG doesn't make something for the Sahara 18" wheels. In fact, the stock size for the Sahara wheels only come with mostly street tread.

If you go to larger tires, your speedo and odo will be off; the gearing will also make it feel more sluggish. There; you've been warned.
You can regear and get your speedo flashed to compensate though.

Bigger tires for Sahara wheels:
I'm running 265/70-18 General Grabber AT2 right now; pretty good tire and not expensive. There are a number of tires in this size but mostly street tread.

275/70-18 is a popular size and have increasing choices; this is a true 33" tire usually but depends upon brand. Your Sahara came with 32" tires that are very close to an actual 31".

Good tires in 275/70-18 size:
Nitto Terra Grappler
Cooper Discoverer STT TEK3
Cooper Discoverer ST
Toyo Open Country Mud Terrain
Toyo Open Country All Terrain
General Grabber AT2
Mickey Thompson Baja AT Traditional Radial
Kumho Road Venture AT KL78
Mastercraft Courser C/T
Dunlop Rover M/T Maxx Traction
Fierce Attitude M/T
Goodyear Wrangler MT/R Kevlar
