I run 33" with 3.31 gearing. If I ever re-gear I'm going towards 3.73 or 3.91, again if I ever do re-gear. It's not high on my wish list because I have no issues getting going or hitting highway speeds. I can chug along the interstate with everyone else and accelerate around slower drivers while still getting relatively good mpg for a jeep. Mud King XT get pretty good mileage and wear. I've been using these for over a decade (3 sets). Sidewalls leave room to desire, but I've been fond of them. They are horrible on wet/slick pavement, though.
Edit: I give a lot of credit to a racing cam and the Howell TBI for my jeep not being doggy, though.
