I have two small kids so I don't want to be sliding all over the road in the rain. I should also say that I'm planning on getting a 2.5" leveling kit and throwing 35's on. Any tire recommendations? Thanks!
Someone else mentioned them already but the Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac is an A/T tire that really looks a lot like an M/T tire. They are pricey though. There are a lot of good A/T tires out there but my two favs are the Cooper Zeon LTZ and the Nitto Terra Grappler. I am running the Coopers right now and love them but the Terras are a tad cheaper and are available in more sizes. Speaking of sizes, you are going to need 1/4" spacers to fit 35s on your stock rims even with the level. Also, not sure what you have in mind for the level but you can't beat the Bilstein 5100s.

Did you mean 295/60/20 Terra Grapplers or 295/65/20 Trail Grapplers? To the best of my knowledge Nitto doesn't make the Terras in 295/65. Either way, could you post some pics? I am thinking about something similar for my 2004. Thanks!
