BFG KOs are 62 lbs in that size.

But yeh, any of the Goodyear cousins (Duratrac, Kelly Safari TSR, Fierce Attitude MT, Authority) are very lightweight for their sizes.

BFG ATs come in a 35x12.5x15 size at 54#. And they last forever on a TJ.

That's what I was looking at billiebob. Was just curious if anybody had any info on anything else a bit more aggressive.

BF Goodrich is pretty much on the light side compared to other ATs, and theyre backed with great reputation.
