I would ask you what kind of driving do you do? You're comparing a MT to an AT tire. The AT won't be near as good in the mud, but will out perform the MT on the highway in all kinds of weather. The AT's are at best "ok" in mud, but do pretty well in dry off road conditions. The BFG's will most like last longer as well.

BFG. They last, plus an AT should be good enough for red clay roads when they are wet..

I'd go with the BFGs. The toyos look way too aggressive for a 2 wheel drive.

Cool 35X12.50R - 17 Toyo's

I just put four 35X12.50R-17 Toyo Open Country MT's on my '08 4X4. They are aggressive, they are loud and they wander at high speed on the highway. I usually drive between 65 - 75 mph on the highway and they have been fine at that speed. However, I had the truck up to 85/90 the other night and it started to wander a little - I didn't like the feeling at all. I run a little mud and a lot of beach sand and they work great for both. I had Procomp Extreme MT's on my '07 Ranger and they were no where near as loud as the Toyo's.

As Davey~do said "Go with AT's" - you'll be fine.
