you would probably get worse mileage if you spend lots of time on the highway. don't change, just see how it runs then make the decision.

Your truck probably has a 373 rear end now, I don't think you would want to change that. It's a good middle of the road ratio for these trucks. Not putting on 35" mud tires wouldn't improve your mileage but would at least maintain what you have. Good custom tuning and stock size highway tires will help to get you better mpg.
