So I'm really interested in the above mentioned tires, but after doing a little research the weight thing is kind of putting a damper on this the idea. After a little digging I found that these things are 33 pounds PER TIRE heavier than stock. My question is how much will I notice in the seat of the pants feel when upgrading to these? My truck is a '13 Big Horn Crew, 4x4 and I'm running the 3.92 gears. ANY input on this would really help. Considering running this with a leveling kit but this entire tire thing is really aggravating.

Go for it! The power loss is not near as bad as you would expect. Especially since you have 3.92 gears. I'm running 35x12.5 Toyo MT's which are a lot heavier than the Terra Grapplers with a 4.7 and 3.55 gears and the power loss was a lot less on that. You notice it a bit starting from a dead stop, or going up some steep hills. But other than that it doesn't bug me at all. Definitely worth it for the look.
