I have just started watching his show on the discovery channel. He builds over the top diesels such as the MEGA RAM. He has only been able to use military tires to this point. It is a new kid on the block.

I am not affiliated with any of the above companies, just trying to help give you more info
If they are anything like the federal Couragia MT, stay far far away... I ran them on my WJ and they were a joke.

Just curious, why were the federal a so bad?

I only see them on mall crawlers so figure there is a reason why no one runs them on the trail but have never heard specifics.

Good offroad, but that's about it. Hard compound, started to wear funny and get really loud. TERRIBLE is the rain, multiple butt pucker moments. I put nittos on after and it was a new jeep. I only had the federals for maybe 5k miles. People run them because they are a cheap gnarly looking MT.

I was researching mud tires in the 35" x 12.50/R15 size. Cooper STT Pro, Micky's Baja MTZ, Goodyear MT/R w/ Kevlar all came in right about 67 lbs. BFG's KM2 weighed only 54 lbs. I was leaning towards the Cooper. But doesn't 13 lbs per tire seem like big difference?? (couldn't find weights on tire websites, so I went to amazon)

I'm running D44's (F&R) on a 2015 2dr Rubicon, so weight isn't a huge issue to me, but someone had posted "...a little extra hear, another piece of armor, sliders, bumpers, all of the sudden all the little extra's have added to a lot more" ...

I know the world is divided on KM2's, not interested in opening that can of worms. I'm just curious is anyone thinks the weight is worth taking into consideration?

For the most part tire weight is in proportion to the amount of rubber that is in the tire. In some cases it comes from the added sidewall protection/rubber as well. Depending on how you use your Jeep would answer if it's worth the extra weight or not.

Personally, 20% weight difference is worth thinking about, but would never be enough to get me to run KM2s. Hopefully the KM3 turns out to be a more attractive option.

Can't go wrong with the Firestone Destinations, honestly one of the best mud tires.

I have one covered on the back by a Bestop cover (https://www.jegs.com/i/Bestop/025/61...873+4294824143) and it still looks good poking through haha

That depends entirely upon what you consider to be loud and what is tolerable.

One of the best things about a Jeep is its ability to go nearly anywhere the driver can imagine. I love it.
