I ran 285/75r16's with 3.73 gears and the 2.5L manual transmission, it brought teh suck! I mean it was drivable, you just had to floor it more than usual. I just did that for a few weeks while working out the kinks with my axle swap, then took it to a shop where they installed my 4.88 gears.
I drove for 6 months on 34" bias Swampers with 4.10 gears, it sucked but those tires were badass.
