lift and tires affecting performance?

I am fixing to install a lift and some 285/75/16 in the next week or so.
What kind of differences can I expect? I like the acceleration and feel of the truck now, am I going to be giving that up? Adding a 32.8" tire will simulate me installing a set of 3.48 gears where factory for my truck is 3.73 I am assuming I will feel that difference at every red light. How ever in a hotrod that isn't that great of a difference with normal driving you really only feel it at full acceleration, is that safe to assume here too?
