SSR's!!! they did great for me in inverness, fl (mud, sand, rock). the wider you go the louder they will be. it's interco's most street friendly swamper. i also switched to swampers from Nitto terragrapplers like you are. Nothing but smiles.

some guys on here run LTB's or Thornbirds, never hear anything bad about them either. they all look sick as $h** too!

I'm running LTB's, great offroad, loud as can be on road and the cheapest swamper available (I think). But I don't think you would want these tires if you drive your truck daily just because of how fast they will wear. On a side note I think they are about to start selling them in 35/12.5's

I know there is a guy running irok ND (non directional)

you do live in florida, why not boggers. Someone just bought some on here too.

I have TSLs. I love them. They are very loud on the road and handle like crap on the road. Off road they are great in the rocks and mud but suck in sand.

Get some boggers if it is for off road only. I would suggest the radial tsls if you drive on the road a lot. Oh yeah be prepared to buy a new set soon because they wear fast.

Thornbirds Have the most annoying road noise to them it's so high pitched it'll drive ya nuts!

GET THE BOGGERS!!! If you rotate them every 3,000mi you'll 25-30k out of them. It's all about rotating them. And run 'em backwards (swap the fronts left to right and the backs left to right) You'll get the best wear out of them especally with ifs, And when you run 'em backwards get some ear plugs cuz they'll be crazy loud!

they dont make a 35 in a 12.50. and also, the boggers will last you awhile in a ranger and with well maintained rotations.

then I would stay away from swampers or at least the bias ply ones. Stick to the radials and you will get more miles out of them.

I love my bfg muds for weekend offroad use. very street friendly tires and im getting good tread life outa them so far. They look mean and aggressive too. I just got them because i drive on the street alot and wanted to get good tread life outa them. They sling mud really well too.LOL nothing like swampers but hey ill sacrafice a little. They are a good all around tire and i have never been stuck. I have had them in mud, sand, and rock and have never been stuck. I love them and highly recommend them if your truck isnt for offroad use only.

Im just giving some friendly advise. Most swampers are known for bad tread life and street ability but great offroad traction.

Just made a suggestion for if he offroads on the weekend and drives his truck on the street everyday to work or school or something.

BTW, they are getting a lot of new sizes for a lot of different swampers, may want to check it out.

Those new m-16's ones look sweet in person.

and for some reason they changed my 34/10.5's to 35/10.5's for some reason, but didn't change the actual size of them. weird

just thought it was a tad strange that you were talking about bfgs in a thread asking about swampers...
