How often are you in the mud? I have the Trail Grappler MTs and I do mostly highway driving and hauling with some off road on construction sites. I don't need the MTs at all but I like the way they look better.
I tow goosenecks and drive on the pavement mostly and I would buy the Trail Grappler MTs again. I haven't been stuck yet, knock on wood. Previously, I had the Toyo MTs and those are worthless compared to the Trail Grappler MTs, based off my use.

I have never had the TG's but i do have a set of MG's on my truck right now. They work awesome in mud but the humming sound as your drive down the road can drive you nuts sometimes. You actually have to turn the music up loud to drown out the sound. Overall a good tire though!

I had the mud grapplers before. Not a bad tire. Just make sure you keep them rotated.

I run the MT's on mine and they're great. I just play around in the back fields and use my truck as a daily driver and towing trailers. Great on the highway and doesn't hum too much

I'm getting the trail grappler. Everyone says they are quiet and does good on the road.

Trails are better in 99% of driving situations.

I have Mud Grappler's on the truck now with Trail Grapplers in the garage ready to go on when the snow flies. The main difference is the noise - trails are much nicer to run the highway with. Muds look great, awesome in mud but suck in every other way
