old jeep style tires

hey i was wondering if any of you guys knew of a company that still made the really skinny style tires that they used to put on the jeeps. i had a set of 31's on my last ranger and i loved them. great gas milage and they cut right through the mud or snow. plan on putting something like these on my 95.

4.10s would definately help
if you are going with 33 or smaller, and your truck is a supercab (10" rear drums) you really dont need to upgrade your brakes

its a regular cab short box. my last one had 10 inch drums in it but it seemed like it didnt have enough stopping power with the big tires. im not sure what they are going to look like though. thinking a wider tire will look better but probably be worse in mud and snow. i also have to drive this truck 60 miles a day for work.
