Default 31s vs 32s...big difference?

Is there a huge difference in actual performance my truck would decrease with 32s instead of 31s? Or are 32s too much and I would need to regear.

Mileage was the same for me on both 31s and 32s. As far as power I could tell a difference. 31's and 4.10 was sweet, 32's and 4.10 is still acceptable, but the acceleration just isn't the same.

Had 3.55 gears and 31's and it was horrible mpg sucked and took for ever to get going.

Put in a axle with 4.10's and it turns the 31's just fine and I get good mpg.
