    The Terra Grappler is cheaper than the same-sized BFG A/T. Dunno for sure about the Mud Grapplers, but it would seem to follow that they wouldn't be real expensive, either.

    Anyone got any experience with these yet? Not really what I was looking for but I found a set of 5 37x14.50x17s with 90% tread and he wants $800.

    Have a friend that has them 35" or 36" on an 80's k10, he hates them. They just suck in the mud. Got stuck in a hole where a jeep on all terrains walked through. Clog up real quick.

    x2. Friend of mine had some 38s and said they were horrible. He ranked them right up there with thornbirds

    same story here , a buddy bought a new set of 35x12.5x16, and they suck, they will not clean out no matter how fast he spun them, he was @ 12'' deep, the diff's wasn't touching and the tires looked like drag slicks, which surprised me after seeing them new, i thought they would be awseome, but no!

    they have pretty good sized voids around the lugs, so they may be good for climbing rocks

    I have 35x14.5x16 on my crewcab and I like them. On an lifted 1 ton crewcab they ride nice. I have not used 4 wheel drive with them yet. I have been on some roads in 2 wheel drive with no problems. They are expensive, but I bought them because they were a wide 35 with an E load range so I can still pull with the truck. I have a friend with them on a half ton and they ride kinda rough.

    I think 4wheeler or petersons did a tire test with the grapplers . They weren't impressed with their mud characteristics. But did well on the rocks.
