Yes, a tuner will help.
Perfect, already got the tuner and I trusted your opinion on my CAI and still love it.

I'm running 35x12.5 Toyo MT's with 3.55's on my 4.7 and it's honestly not that bad at all. Yes I can definitely tell the difference in size and weight but the overall drivability of the truck isn't bad at all. Going up hills is where I notice it the most.

As far as MPG goes, so far I've gotten 16.1 MPG and 15.6 MPG on the two tanks I've had with my 35's. Keep in mind I do around 80% highway driving but I'm fine with those numbers considering how big and heavy my MT's are compared to stock.
I am about the same with highway driving... do about 120-150KM a day every other week, thank god for truck-pooling

I ripp mine through mud with stock everything and garbage wranglers.. I think with rock climbing it just puts alot of pressure on the tires with the wierd angles you can end up in?.. Maybe.
