Need Some Opinions on BFG's

Well i have decide to lift my truck even though it is a 2wd. But...not sure what BFG''s to get

-BFG All Terrain ?
-BFG Mud Terrain ?
-BFG Mud Terrain T/A KM2 ? (these are the ones i really like)

O yea..my truck is a 2002, 2WD, with a 5.0. Im not going to be doing much off roading with the truck, i would say mostly city and highway driven, I am getting the fabtech spindle lift, with aal's and lowering shackles. So i want to run 35x12.5x15 on my pro comp 8069 15x10.

Id really appreciate your opinions, thanks

You dont really need anything aggressive...so i'd stick with the BFG A/T KO tires.

BUT...in my opinion, nothing adds to the look like aggressive mud terrains. OH...and BFG is phasing out the original M/T KM tire...it's pretty much all M/T KM2's from here on out. KM2's are highly likely my next set of tires.



JUST a spindle lift with 35's????

x2 if youre mostly gonna be on highway the A/T will last a lot longer than the M/Ts. But the M/Ts do look alot cooler in the mall parking lot.

I really like the KM2's, my next tires are either going to be KM2's, Toyo MT's, or M/T ATZ's.

Yea, I really like the stuffed look, i know ima rub a lil, and ill prob. have to cut my fender a lil.But im not really going to be flexing alot ya know. And eventually down the road when i want to do some flexing and more off roading, ill get a 3"BL, so ill have some more room.

You will want to max the t-bars to put 35's on there too. I personally think 35's is a bit much for just 3" of lift.

Im leaning more towards the KM2'S , there pretty pricy but i think there going to be defently worth it.

I forgot to add in that i really dont drive the truck too much, take the wife out, go to the store, take the dogs for a ride, etc... basically not very long distances.

Ok, I guess I was right. You have any pics. The ones I found were of you on 32's and a 1" BL.
