How much loss/strain am I looking at?

I have a 01 Ranger Edge 2wd, 3.0 manual with 3.73's in the rear. I also have underdrive pullys and a 40 series flowmaster single inlet dual outlet turdown exhaust on it. I have some 235 75's on it right now with 15 in rims, and im planning on putting either 32x15x11.5's or, what I really want, 33x15x12.5 (and do they make 11.5 in 33's?). Im getting about 20 city can 25 hwy right now, what kind of power/gas milage loss am I looking at? Im gonna put a 3 or 4 in lift on it as well. If it is a good amount of power/gas milage loss, what can I get to get it back running to about what I have now? Thanks in advance!

I have a double lift on 33" bfg at's and 3.73's with the 3.0 and I'm about 15-17mpg. I have an 8.8 w 4.10's goin in tommorow, I can't stand the 3.73's.

If you plan to switch ratios and it's temporary, it's fine, but staying in OD is hard and your tranny heats up...mine is constantly at 180*
