    stock mpg is 15 average.
    with lift and tires it'll go down.

    do what mods you want to do.

    Rubicon Express lifts are pretty much the Jeep nowadays

    3.5" plus 31" tires is pretty nice looking and capable without breaking the bank.

    ytf do people lift their jeeps to fit small tires? put the tires on new BS rims (do your research and you wont ahve any problems with fitment) and extend the bumpstops an inch.

    :rolleyes:

    You dont need bumpstops put some grand cherokee up-country springs out of a v-8 in the front and put a 2 inch spacer or so and then put some s-10 springs in the rear it will give you a nice lift if you want to know stuff about XJ's Cherokees go to www.naxja.com if you want the ZJ grand cherokee go to www.nagca.com they will have everything you could even think of there
