That's great for the trail, but you won't do more than 60 on the highway and that's at a very high RPM... Swapping to 31's will spin the RPM's higher and you will go slower.

You didn't ask a question nor say what you want the rig to do.

87samurai_dunn where could i get the kits?

Billjohn The front will (22 spline shafts) but the rear won't (26 spline shafts).

But I would suggest swapping the gears using a kit for both. The track/kick housings are aluminum and will crack like an egg if you whack it on something on the trail. The Samurai housings are steel and can take a beating.

87samurai_dunn will the track/kick 3rds bolt right up or would i have to swap gears?

Good observation (wish I'd though of it).
The GRS II has an 18% high-range reduction, which puts 31's about 4% lower than stock -- a good choice. And the 4.89:1 low-range will work well with 31's for most off-roading.

my996duc1 I have stock t-case and 5.12 r&p (hybrid rear) on 31" tires = 4200rpm at 65mph. Mine was setup this way when I bought it but I would have done it differently with less r&p gearing and also do the t-case.

I want a lower crawl BUT now if I do the t-case with the GRS II to get a better low gear crawl I am going to be running 700rpm-ish higher I could go to a 33" tire and drop 300rpm-ish but that still has me running 4600 rpm at 65mph.
Not sure what rpm is too high to run sustained on a daily driver but it feels already kinda high at 4200rpm. I guess that would be a good question for a new topic.....

Here are some good tables to figure gearing and speed info :
