    I currently am running a 5 inch rcx lift on 33 and wanted to know if you guys thought if i changed my lift to the 7.5 inch lift and put 35s would i see much worse gas mileage than i am already getting. Around town i get about 12.

    Not if you regear for the upgrade in tire size.

    Not sure if you have a 2wd or 4wd, but expect to pay about ~$500 to ~$600 per differential if you have it professionally done.

    Yeah...that just doubled your cost over a 2wd. I spent about $1,200 last year, but got some quality gears and a nice warranty. But, it was definitely worth the investment in a number of ways.
