I-4, 32's and not re-gearing?

Anyone have an I-4 and running 32’s without re-gearing? How does it work, what is the RPM at 60 mph, would you recommend it?
Thanks

You have the 4 cyl, but do you have auto or 5 spd?
My current YJ has 4 cyl and auto trans with 32's.
This jeep came with 3:73 gears and was ok around town,but couldn't get to 70 mph on the highway with the 32's. Now has 4:88 gears (revs a little higher on the highway -around 3500, but will now actually pull up those same stretches of highway at 70-75 mph). A previous YJ of mine had 4cyl and 5 spd (again with 32's)(stock with 4:10's).
Again, that jeep did ok around town, but 5th gear was useless on the highway (and couldn't hold speed going up hills). I put 4:56 gears on that jeep which helped for the most part. It could use 5th gear on the highway except on steep or long highway inclines (always wanted 4:88's for that jeep, but they weren't available at that time).
