It looks good dude. He's done exactly what I wanna do for the suspension on my ZJ. Which lift is that? Looks like the 4.5

I just drove 400+ highway miles on 255's and I averaged over 21 mpg.

I have the 3.7 V6

I'm not sure if that has anything to do with your local geography as far as being in the mid west. I barely saw 20's even before I got a lift and larger tires. In the Piedmont region I was getting 20 highway. Post-lift on the highway, I'm pleased If I can get 17-18. EPA rating alone for them is 16-20 @ 55mph. It's definitely not impossible, but I really question any 4400lb V6 with a lift and larger tires getting 20's without CAI, exhaust, and some form of chip I never heard about - and retaining the airdam and no cargo rack or additional equipment affecting drag.
