According to AM General [and my manual] they should all be facing forward, chevron points on the center pointing to the front / drive direction of the truck.

You'll see them mixed up because some folks don't care. There's also the story on how the military will mix them up so that enemy troops wouldn't know which direction the cars/trucks were going, but I believe that's more of an old wives tale.

When I ran 16.5" 37 MT's they were all pointing in the same direction.

Realistically there wouldn't be that much difference if you mix them up or not.

the goodyear m/t is not a directional tire. therefore it doesn't matter which way they go.
