Lift Advice

I want to put a 6.5 inch lift on my daily driver. I would like to run 33's for the fact that I work about a half hour away. Does anyone have pictures of xj's lifted 6.5 on 33's? Would my gas milage go way down with 35's?

Check out the "lift setups v2.0" thread (or w.e its called) plenty of pictures at all lift heights.

As far as the tires go, it'll end up being about gearing. My buddy was getting 13mpg in his 98 v8 zj on 35's then regeared to 4.56 I think and he's now up to 16 or 17.
