It's pretty good for the highway but I'm only getting about 14mpg on the city.

I have a 4"Pro comp and I run 33's with no rubbing problems. I don't necessarily recommend Pro Comp, though. I think there are lifts out there with better riding springs. As far as the gas mileage, I get around 15 mpg driving a combo of city/highway.
