Nitto Trail Grapplers MT 35x12.50x17 (too heavy?)

Newb here....just got a 2015 JKHR. I'm going to put a 2.5" short arm lift on it. I'm also looking at Nitto Trailer Grapplers MT 35x12.50x17. I see that they weigh in at 80lbs. each and with the wheel it will be a little over 100lbs.
This seems like a lot of weight per tire for the Jeep. I know it's a durable vehicle but I worry about that much weight. I don't plan on regearing.
So I was looking for anyone running these tires and 4.10 gears....wanting some input on power loss, loss of acceleration, etc....I plan on doing some wheeling in Colorado and Moab. Also wanting to know what long term (or short term) problems I am looking at running a tire this heavy?
Actually input from anyone running any tire this heavy with 4.10 gears would be a great help.

I'm running a JKR as my daily driver with the 4.10's and 315/70/17's Trail Grapplers and the auto trans during the summer months, and the stock 255/75/17's during the winter. I can feel no real difference in power and less than a mpg difference in gas mileage. In 4-lo the gearing is low enough to crawl steep descents, I expect it would be with a standard as well.
And I'm loving the Trail Grapplers. They will likely become the next tires for my TJ as well since they ride great on the road and off.

I'm at 115 pound whee/tire combo in 35" and I had bad wobbles over bumps that sometimes went into oscillation in my 2014 2-door. Upgraded track bar to the teraflex Monster and it made it a lot better but it still does wobble a good bit.
