Mud tire rotating advice

Need to rotate my tires. Seemed like it didnt take long at to need to rotate them. I have 39.5 pitbull rockers on my 97 350. Was wondering how often you all rotate your larger mud tires and whats the best way to do it. I was thinking the back tires straight up and the fronts cris crossed to the rear.

I just started doing this method .. my last tires were directional so I couldn't

i just can tell when it's time to rotate the handling seems to get bad( follows uneven road and ruts more) and a physical/ tread depth comparison of front and rear is my deciding factor

Because of difficulty lifting anything more than 2 wheels at a time would it be ok to do a cris cross pattern? RR swap w LF LR swap w RF etc.

This is what I do. RF to LR, LF to RR but the next time I just do front to back.

Recommended rotation for non-directional tires is
RR to RF
RF to LR
LR to LF
LF to RR

Same as others said: back to fronts, and criss cross the fronts to backs.
