They are longer. They are "made for 3" lifts", but I used them and have had no problems.

Hmmm, I never thought of that. I just assumed the 6 amp switch might goof up. I'm not very familiar with wiing and such.

Umm I average about 13-14mpg with very gentle throttle. But all my driving is "city" driving. There is a ton of traffic ad a lot of hills where I live. If you drive long, flat distances, you should still get decent mileage because as long as you don't re-gear your overdrive is running at a lower rpm due to "oversized" tires. At first I was way paranoid about gas mileage and tire wear, but after a while you forget about it because your Jeep rocks.

Finally got around to doing some more work on the Jeep. I wanted to rebuild my front drive shaft to see if it would solve some unknown sounds and clunks. It operates a bit tighter now, but I suppose Jeeps are just clunky.
