Default 2001 4x4 off road tire wear

my 2001 1500 quad cab 4x4 eats tires. I'm on my fourth set of tires and I only have 55,000 miles. I have owned this truck from day one. It's kept in great shape. Dealer has no answer. Told me to rotate tires every 3,000 miles. This does nothing to help, but wears out all the tires. Any advise?

I have a '01 4x4 Off Road . Have about 140,000 miles on it . On my 3rd set of tires . Look great . Dealer should have an answer . Might want to take it to someone else and have them check the front end over .

What does the wear pattern look like on the tires? A photo would be helpful. What size tires? If you've had it aligned, were all the numbers within spec? Any suspension or steering mods?

are they Super Swamper Boggers or some other non-radial soft material tire? This is the first truck i havent had off-road tires on and Boggers are the only ones ive ever had wear fast. I had some GoodYear MT/R's last me a while on my F150 and some radial trxus from super swamper last over 15k miles when i got rid of it and they looked good. So unless you are using a weird tire something is wrong under your front end.
