I put Kelly Safari ATs on my truck on a recommendation from a trusted friend and love them...they are quiet and they are 10 ply so I can tow what I want.

Whats wrong with duratracs on a diesel? I have them on my truck and we use them at work without issue.

What about hancook dnyapros or whatever their called. Heard good about them

Bgf mud ta's are supposed to be good, possibly better than the all terrains.

Goodyear silent armors are supposed to be good.
I think I have seen the coopers mentioned above, nice looking tire

In my opinion, BFG A/Ts don't work very well in the mud. They pack up and don't clean themselves, which makes them extremely slick. It sounds like you spend some time in the mud, so this may not be the right choice. I have run the BFG A/Ts on multiple trucks for many years without any issues (besides rotting from age when they were 8+ years old).

BFG Mud Terrains (M/Ts) are pretty good tires, but they are loud on the road (not sure if this is a concern). If I spent more time off road, the Mud Terrains would probably be one of my top tire choices.

I've been running the Goodyear Duratracs for about 10K miles on my F350 and have been pretty happy with them. But I can't comment on their mud capabilities, as I live in the desert and don't make it in the mud too often. So far they've handled the rocky terrain pretty well and seem to be wearing well on the road. They are slightly louder than the BFG A/Ts they replaced, but they aren't too bad.

Duratracs do well in the mud. And great in the snow. I'm going to get another set when I need new ones

If I'd choose from S/A & BFG AT's I'd choose the BFG. I had the S/A stock on my jeep & they sucked on anything that wasn't dry. I have cooper Discoverer ATP on my Excursion, so far I'm happy with them. 27k miles on them so far & still have good tread. They have feathering on them but not sure if the P/O didn't rotate them or my shocks/ front springs need replacement or both.
