I have heard good things about them but have never used them. I have pretty much been a Toyo guy for years.

I haven't used them personally, but I know that one thing about the Mud Grapplers is that they are SUPER loud. (If you saw last night's top gear, you know what I mean.)
I would only get them if I spent most of my time off road, but that's just me. I would probably go for the Trails.
What size lift do you have?

I have to agree the are very loud at highway speeds, but the sure do perform in the mud. You can always just turn the stereo up too

never had them, but have yet to hear anything bad about them. IMO as long as you stay away from the BFG all terrain T/A you should be good! lol

The only BAD thing I can say about the tire is that, even though, they may be great in the mud, you also gotta think about getting to and from the mud. These tires wear really quickly on pavement! But they sure do look good doing it!!!

Thanks guys. I've heard the same things here. More positive than negative, which is good. I'm tryin to look for the same size tire: 37x13.50x17 but realized only nitto, one of the swampers, and I think toyo makes one. I know I can put on 12.50's but I don't like that "box" look on. For "dodgeguy" I have a 6" suspension lift with a 3" body lift. Thats y I wanna run with 37's. Anything smaller will look funny...I think. Any thing bigger would make my truck lag. Thanks again everyone! DODGE RULE!

Yeah man, since you've got the 6+3 lift, the most aggressive tires you can get will look the best.
But like someone said, they do wear fairly quickly.
But since you've got a 3500 QCLB with 9 in of lift, go for it!
