31x10.50s and 3.73s

I am putting 31x10.50s on my truck today and i was wondering if they are going to be a dog with a 3.0 and 3.73s. Anybody run this set-up? If so how is it?

I had that setup. It really wasn't that bad. Drove fine on the street, highway was kind of a rather pain. Now on the highway it cruised fine but you had no acceleration in 5th gear and going up any kind of steep hill required 4th gear. If are 3.0L had more power it would be perfect but I've gone to 4.10's from the 3.73's.

I had that setup on my old Ranger.

Around town was fine. Freeway speeds (65+) sucked if there where any hills or a strong headwind. Also, don't tow too much at those speeds.

I usually got 17 on a good mixed tank of city/highway.
