I had 31's on a 2.2L Mazda B2200. You felt the weight a little, but it wasn't terrible.

You'll be fine man. My 2.5L turns my 31's fine with the stock 3.73 gears just when I get in the deep stuff or try to climb a hill it would bog down real bad. So I am switching to 4.10.

Did you have Mud Kings before? Did you like them? I got Sport Kings right now.

You will have to re teach yourself on braking with them. Atleast I did. Steele wheels and 31s on mine and front brakes lock up easy.

Looks good.

A 2.3 will turn ANY tire, but it won't turn the larger ones very fast, especially with stock gearing.
