I like the Michelin Defender LTX as well for all the reasons you stated.  Plus its a very high mileage tire.  The only thing I dont like about them is the side wall, good ride = more lean in turns.

I have BFG A/T KO2 on my 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4x4 I do like them, But Not so good in rain. When I hit puddles on the road the steering pulls to the side the puddle was on. Never had had problem with the factory tires. Also in rain I have punched the gas to merge into a lane and when the trans kicked down the rear tires broke loose, got a bit out of shape had to get out of it then ease back on it. That's all time AWD / 4x4. I only drive in sport mode which turns off traction control. I also had the BFG A/T KO1 on my 1983 CJ-7 and I Loved them. 33x12.50x15 great on road and off road. Great in sand and surprised me as to the depth of mud that they got me threw.

With that being said, My fiance has a 2016 Ram 1500 Limited 4x4 and needed new tires. I did alot of researching and decided on Michelin Denfender LTX M/S these are the tires I was considering for my 2012 Jeep and I wish I got them instead of the BFG A/T KO2.

The Michelin Defender LTX are AWESOME on my fiances Ram 1500 Limited 4x4, truck has factory air susp., but these Michelin ride smooth as glass. Great in rain, sleet, snow. I've driven her truck while on vacation in NC. TN. up in the mountains in fall, spring, winter and they are great from paved roads to loose sand, steep dirt /rock unpaved mountain roads up to cabins we have stayed in. NO issue driving threw puddles and steering pulling to the puddle side like the BFG's do. The Michelin Defender LTX go straight as a arrow right threw standing water on the road.

To sum it up for my next set of tires on my daily driver they will be Michelin Defender LTX

Just wanted to post a update. I finally got around to installing the O2 Simm that I bought from magnumman and driving my Jeep to work 48 miles each way. About 30 of the 48 miles each way was on the interstate at 70 mph. My Jeep had NO issues at all, NO check engine light, No codes, drove and ran great.

I know you work for a chain  "grocery store style" parts store. I worked at Useless Zone for most of a year as a 2nd job back in the mid 90s.  but I am a fleet mechanic and we use Dorman as minimally as possible because we have had issues with their "quality" (or rather lack of)  When I did my 93 I got a Cardone brand reman. It did me fine the rest of the time I had that truck. Most chain store reman parts are from this company no matter what the lable says, theres usually a Cardone label underneath. 
I do not shop advance, I don't get along w/ the manager at the closest store. I used to spend a ton there. That didn't matter to this azz.... there was "Lifetime warranty" and Allan's warranty" which was rarely one and the same. the empoloyees would honor the lifetime aspect and if its something that they didn't have in stock and when you come back to get your warrantied part that Allan isn't the idiot behind the counter.... after the 3rd time of having tore buy a "lifetime warranty" part that another counter person verified would be covered, he claims HIS parts don't ever go bad gotta be a problem with the vehicle"   Every damn time.

There is another advance but there are about 4 or 5 other parts stores besides the close Advance location between me and the "better" store. Guys from the old Car Quest store got transferred there.  I used to love Car Quest. never went anywhere else until dumbass Advance bought them out. They haven't been the same since. And whats with oil, bralke clean, Freon, etc being the highest in town and you guys like to flaunt the prices on the windows as if it were a good deal?   Farm and Fleet, Wal Mart beat Advance on that stuff hands down every time....  when Walmart has R134 on sale for $4.49/can and Advance, Oreilly etc have  aHUGE banner covering their window with "SALE FREON $10.99/can" who do they think they are BS'ing?  I remember going to Walmart for Freon and they were out, I went to Oreillys and the guy was about in tears when he had to price match Walmart....

My second job is at Advance Auto, all they offer is a Dorman rack for it.
I have the bushings and will pick up new outters for it.
I was concerned about the lower coupler / u-joint going away when I take it apart.
We'll see how it goes...........

Pretty easy. Dakota? I did my 93 when I had it.
2 weekends ago I put new inner tie rod ends on my 92 along with poly rack bushings. Check with the parts store, they should still be able to get one for that truck. I don't trust dorman parts much, I doubt that they make one that would be a direct fit, probably some adaptation needed, you don't want anything in the steering system Mickey mouse'd for sure.
You will have to take it in for an alignment afterwards.

This one is too close to the sidewall for my liking. I would either patch from the inside or simply retire it (pun intended  Laughing )

Dono -
I feel your pain.
My team pick up bolt seals from drivers that just drop them on the ground instead of throwing them in the trash.
Lots of 11r22.5 and 10.00-20 have been trashed by them.

Bad rack on the '92. Planning on a reman Dorman to replace it.
I am trying to get all my ducks in a row before I rip it all apart.
I hear horror stories on the lower coupler not coming apart intact, I'd like to have one available when I do the job.

Anyone have experience swapping one out?
On paper, it should be a relatively straightforward job.
Everyone knows that this is not how it goes though.....
