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'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.
