So you are running 39s with stock axles, steering and gears? And you are gonna wheel it like this? I look forward to following how this works out for you.
If this is true (39's with stock axles, steering and gears), and you're gonna wheel it, I predict bad things (as in breaking) will happen. And the 1 lower MPG with the 39's is hard to believe.

I hope it all works out but I'm staying tuned

I hope you have zero issues spinning those 39's on stock everything but I'm not optimistic.

From the interwebs (there are many like these and stories from those who've done it):
"Using a larger than stock tire puts a lot of stress on the drive train parts. It takes more power and torque to rotate that larger tire. That means, the drive train, U-joints, drive shafts and axles, take the brunt of that force."
