33 MTR/K vs. 35TR/K

I need new tires soon and I am currently running 33 Bfg At. So should I stay with 33s or go with the 35s because I can get them a little cheaper. If I did go with the 35s how much mpg would I aspect to loose and would I see a noticeable power loss with the inline 6 ? I have 3.73 gears and I do not plain to regear with these axles.

Side note: I do have upgraded steering and brakes.

If you don't plan to regear for 35" tires, I wouldn't do it. Your engine would be really lugging with your 4-speed automatic when it's in Overdrive. Mine is bad enough with that same transmission, 35" tires, and 4.88 gearing.

Thanks, I didn't know if it would be worth or not. Probably not worth it then since it is still my DD.

I think you missed Jerry's point. To add what I think he was getting at was you really should upgrade gears for 33 or 35s as soon as possible. Sorry if I am putting words in your mouth JB.
