Default 3.08 Gear Ratio W/ 35" Tires; Gas Milage?

I was wondering would my 3.08 Gear Ratio have real bad gas mileage w/ 35" BFG A/T's? I have the stock tires on as of now which are P225/70R-14's. I get about 18-20 MPG as of now, what could I expect with my 3.08 Gear Ratio with 35" BFG A/T's?

I looked at the Rear Axle Codes Page On the Fourm, and the Axle Code I have is a 92, But would this mean I don't have limited slip? cause I do. I bought the truck from a dealer, does this mean that the axle was swapped out sometime along the way in my trucks 17 year life span?

I know they exist, and yes it means someone swapped out your gears at one time.

I'll have to check out the metal tag on the rear axle, how do I "De-Crypt" the Metal Tag On the rear Pumpkin? And If I have my rear differental flushed would they be able to tell me what type of gears I got In my baby?

And yep, I bought It at a used dealership.
