If you went w the bigger tires at the same time, that's part of it. Larger diameter contributes to a greater moment of inertia, heavier tire too. Another part of it is that the truck is higher and is blocking more air. They already had the aerodynamics of a slanted brick. But now you've leveled and lifted that brick six inches higher. And something else. Your suspension components are now longer and that creates a greater moment of inertia due to greater flex.
Re-gearing it is the best way to get that performance back. A tuner is a cheaper way of changing the shift points..
