    I was wondering out of those of us that have done the SAS and bigger tires w/ a lift how did it affect your gas mileage?

    On mine I was averaging between 18-23 before all the work and now I am getting maybe 10-11. That is with the 4.0, 5spd, D44 & 9" w/ 4:88s , 35s, and about 12"s of total lift. I knew it would go down w/ all the work but I am just curious about everyone else, to see if it is in the average area.

    hi, I'm new to this form I have about 12" of lift,456 gears and 35s I'm getting 12/14mpg with a 4.0 5spd.
    If I baby the skinny pedal and living in florida helps a little it's flat as a board here.
