31" BFG AT or Dick Cepek FCII

I'm considering buying either a 31" BFG AT or the Dick Cepek IIs. Pictures of TJs with these tires would be appreciated. I can't decide if I will put the white letters inside or out on the BFGs. I don't like white outline so the Cepeks will have the white letters inside. I have a white Sahara. So anyone with pictures white or silver Saharas on these tires would be appreciated.

Not a white or silver sahara, but I hope these are enough to get the imagination going:the funny thing about this is I actually have white letters out....they're just covered in mud in this pic. So, it gives a good comparo:


And completely clean, new tires:

Thanks, that does give a pretty good comparison. No offence, but I kind of like the black side out on the darker jeep. But I think I'd like the white letters out on the white Jeep. Maybe, I'll get more pictures here yet. I know this tire is used a lot.

It looks like you have a good place to wheel there. Do you like the BFG A/Ts? Or would you recommend something else.

With the type of driving I do, the AT's do just fine. The FCII's I hear are better in mud and snow, but these do really well in shallow mud, snow, and exceptional on ice. I drove all last winter RWD, they don't really plow roads here unless they get huge one-time snowfalls, usually they let it get packed down so you're driving essentially on 6" of packed snow with some grit mixed in. I was thinking of getting a set of FCII's in a wider size when I upgrade tire size rather than the narrow BFG's, but that's only because I like wide tires. I get stuck alot in deeper mud and snow, more than I like, and a nice Mud Terrain would have been helpful in those situations. But, I don't wheel wet trails often enough to warrant daily driving on mud terrains.

Well, you may have just talked me into the BFGs. I really like the look of the FCIIs and I think they will be better in mud too. But most of my driving is on the street and I want a tire that is good on ice for my wife. I don't really play in the mud, but I want a tire that is decent in the mud so I can get through it if I come across some on a trail. From some of the guys complaints on the forum, I thought the BFG ATs were really bad in the mud. But you make it sound like they are reasonable in shallow mud. So I may give a little more thought to them. But I still like the FCIIs as well. Its a good thing I have some time before I have to buy tires. Thanks again for the pictures and opinions.

By the way, are those 31's in the pictures?

Edit: Nevermind. I see they are in your specs.

I'd love to put a set of those on mine as well, but I am hesitant to go to 31s without a lift.

The last pic I posted was without a lift and it's got sagging springs in the front....It rubbed(and still does actually), but it still went wherever I pointed it.

I really like those tires. They look like a good blend of mud and all terrain.
