    I have a set of BFG ATs on my truck. I do not notice that much of a difference in fuel mileage or power. I know for a fact that the ATs wear a hell of a lot better than the MTs. If you get the MTs be prepared to rotate them religiously.

    Is the Dodge A diesel? if it is some guy's say they get a bit better mpg out of 285's than they do 265's. If you can keep a cummins under 2000rpm's cruising you will get better MPG, some guys do better with 265's. Unless your running in mud a lot I would stick with A/T's Mudder's just wear out to fast.
