Default Best brand opinions please

As I mentioned in an previous post, I am ready to do a 3" body lift and new 32" or 33" tires (?). Can't decide on the tire brand though. Sure would appreciate your experienced opinions to help me choose.

My truck is a 2004 Ranger Edge 4X4 with 4.0 motor. Currently running P245 R/16 street tires. Truck is a daily driver that I would like to take offroad and get dirty once in a while. I live in South Florida where the terrain is mostly mud, muck and more mud.

After doing research on the internet and offroad/4X4 magazines these are my finalists. Not in any order......

*** Cooper STT
*** Maxxis MT-762 Bighorn
*** Kumho Road Venture M/T
*** Mickey Thompson Baja MTZ Radial
*** Nitto Trail Grappler M/T

Out of the the choices listed I like the kumho's. I'm actually in need of new tires, and am debating between the kumho's or another set of Maxxis Buckshot's. The Buckshot's have been great but kinda want try something different. Then again I can get mud kings cheap, so thats probably what I would do. Just depends on your driving style. When it comes to mud, any of the standard style mt tread patterns are hard to beat. Only thing is Mt's get really loud as they wear.
2003 Ranger FX4 level II. 3" BL, 33x12.50 GT Radial Mud Claws, Custom front and rear bumpers with winch hookups, custom flatbed, with hi-lift, and full size spare mount, 12,000 lb winch mounted under bed, Electric fan, and of course a flowmaster.
