You might try checking out tirerack and discounttiredirect if you haven't already. At least you'll get an idea of what style of tire you'd like to stick with.
When I bought my '06 this past Feb it had the Hankook Dynapro ATM's on it and I like the look of them. It gives the truck an off-road aggressive look. And they really aren't loud at all for an A/T style tire.
I also happen to really like the Firestone Destination A/T tires. I ran them on my old Durango Hemi and they were very quiet, road well and were great in mild off-road situations (deep mud would probably do them in). However they were great in the snow (I know you said you'd never see any snow but you just never, ever know).
Then there are the Michelin LTX's. I don't know much about them other than what others have said and they all seem to like them a lot. But I'm not sure if they come in a 33", 34" or 35" size.
There are so many tire style choices that I would start out by looking at the various tire sites to see if you want an aggressive offroad, an all-terrain type or just a good highway tire. Figure that out then see what others have to say about the tires that fit in that type.
If fuel mileage is very important then I would stick with a less aggressive type of tire.
Hopefully others will chime in soon.
