For offroad tires? Heck no, go with the BFG All Terrains. The Rugged Terrains are soccer mom SUV tires.

RangerJustin, Trigger01 and I use ours as a daily driver and we all run the BFG ATs, there not a super aggressive tire. You can easily get 40k miles out of them. I love mine. Almost all the guys on this site drive there trucks every day.

what's the cost difference between the two? I'm a college student and i probably won't have a steady inome until at least the summer so i'm basically looking for a good buy that's not too far out of my range (which is why i'm looking for good deals,etc)

You can get 32s for 145 a tire if you keep a eye out. I have no clue how much the Rugged Trails are.

I can't seem to find an AAL for an 04 ranger, they only go up to '02s. Is it possible for me to buy an 02 version and put it on my truck?

You try calling your local spring shop? They could probably make one for you while you wait.

what size tires are you going to run? i ran 32s but had to get shackles lift as well...but you can get around that if you take a mallet to your fenders and just bend the lip back further...did that on my new truck as well...takes a few minutes...just FYI...might not need to depending on the BS of your wheels too

i have BFG AT/s as well. surface area tread is close enough together to do well on street. but far enough apart to grip dirt. but the biggest difference between the RT's and the AT's is the side walls. AT's are built better, stronger, and have more meat to them so if you get low in a hole you dont lose traction, you gain it. Mud Terrains are built the same way as the AT's. But far more aggressive shoulder tread compared to the AT's. where as the RT's dont even have shoulder tread. and Mud Terrains tread pattern itself is designed to "Self Clean" which is why the tread is further apart between lugs. more noise and less durable on street but flings the mud out. Milage between tires i would guess would be RT's 60k AT's 50k MT's 40k

Best bet over all is the AT's. If your worried too much about it being on street, and losing tread or making too much sound, your on street way too much to bother with your truck. if your gonna get RT's, in my opinion, you shouldn't touch anything other than a dirt driveway. Tires are very important key in offroading. If you think about it, the RT's are similar to the stock tires. So you would basicly be putting on a larger stock tire lol.
