I actually have the Destination A/Ts on my truck and the BFG All Terrain K/Os on my Jeep. I also, previously had the Destinations on my Jeep prior to the BFGs. I love them both so it would be a tough choice for me as well. In my opinion it really comes down to how much time you will spend off road and how important the look is to you. The BFGs look better, are stronger and will do better off-road. The Destinations will provide a better ride, better mileage (slightly maybe) and better on-road bad weather performance.
When I switched from the Destinations to the BFGs, I was going up in size (31s to 33s) and I got a fantastic deal on the BFGs as well. If not for that, it would have been a tough choice for me as well. I must say, though that I like the look of the BFGs better but I thought the Destinations looked good as well.
Not sure if I am really helping you with your choice here but I tried!

You should, in no way, take any of this personally. It's just business. So to recap, I come in peace, I mean you no harm, and you all will die. Gallaxhar out.
Duratracs are definitely a wise choice. I've been running mine since 2010 and are still great. I get awesome traction off road and I can put full confidence in them in the hard rain. That plus my ride is pretty comfortable and not to loud. Can't go wrong with them IMHO
I had a discussion once with a Goodyear rep and he stated that, for any brand, to get the rated/warrantied mileage out of a tire you have to run it to the point of almost having no tread at all. To the manufacturer, what they consider "safe" and what is really safe are two very different things and there are so many loopholes to their warranties that they put ridiculously high mileage ratings/warranties on their tires.
Running Duratracs on my company truck and really like them. I'm in the gas fields so I see everything, mud, snow, freezing rain, and gravel/shale roads. I have been through BF's AT, MT, trexxus, Cooper ST, STT and Toyos. One of the perks of my job is we can put on any tire we want so I get to test anything I want. I put the STT on my jeep over a year ago and they rock, but a little aggressive for a DD. I have the Duratracs on my 3/4 ton because they are a awsome tire for a DD. I'm not saying the other tires are bad but I've just had real experience with all if them and those are my choices.

I second the Duratracs. I love mine. Very quiet, good wear, great all terrain street tire. Good traction when aired down with the side lugs. I took mine through the Rubicon last year, and they did well. The side walls are a little thin for hardcore rocks, but the OP said they were not into rocks, so that shouldn't be an issue.
I have ridden with people that have the KM2's and they seem to do good on the road and are not noisy. May be more aggressive than you want, but still another choice.
I never had any issues out of any of the BFG AT's that I ran in the past and would not hesitate to run them again if I was going to buy new AT's, the ones I had on my 4 door Explorer had well over 60K miles on them when I sold it and still had around 30% tread left. Not sure how long they would last as I have never worn a set out before selling the vehicle .
I have only personally run BFG MTs (KM) and now im running Pro-comp MTs. The pro comps are 100x louder then the BFG and are wearing much quicker. I had 60k+ on my BFG MTs and there is still probably 30-40% left, maybe a little more. From talking to other Jeepers, it seems the Duratracs are the best choice for an all around DD, they have the aggressive look, are quiet and seem to last a decent amount of time.
