Try to search for some of the info you need...there are a ton of threads all ready posted about many of the topics youd like to get info for...

But to answer part of your question or at least comment on it...I was looking at the 3.5" rock crawlers but stayed away from them due to the anglethe rest of your stock suspension would be set at...not very good for off road unless you do some other upgrades...which means more $$$...but good luck...

Here's one thread and if you put rock krawler in the search feature you will find others.

3.5" Rock Krawler Anyone?

Happy New Year everyone. I was wondering if anyone here has installed the 3.5" Rock Krawler lift yet. I found it through ebay, for $315 plus shipping. I may be late on this, but I haven't heard of them before.

Thanks.

Spigot,

Why not the Rough Country 2" for $160? The Rock Crawler only ends up being 2" anyway.

I think that is how I am going to go after reading the past threads.

265/65R18's would be equivalent to what we are running with 17 inch wheels and a spacer lift.

Well, while you're waiting for someone with a big lift to respond, I'll give you my 2 cents worth. I have Rusty's 2 inch lift. I never ran it with standard tires. I put the lift and bigger tires on the same day. My gas mileage has taken a hit but I believe it is due to the larger heavier tires, not the lift. Heavier tire, more rotational force at work.

I suppose there may be some hit in mpg with a higher stance, possibly more wind resistance, but you got more room for air to be displaced below the vehicle too.

Its definately the larger, heavier tires that effect the mpg.

Well I'm getting 12 MPG with my 4 in lift and 285/70R17 tires. When I purchased it used, stock it was getting 15 MPG.
