many here run that lift with great success. I personally do not like body lifts so went with just the 3.5 premium kit. MPG with just the kit should be minimal. You will lose it mainly once ya get bigger tires. Also your driving style plays alot into it also

I just have the 3.5" premium kit since I'm not a fan of body lifts. Had it for a little over 5k miles with no complaints. With 285/70/17 I probably lost 1mpg estimated.

All your questions can be answered in the post you quoted and the post above yours. He has 17" Pro Comp Alloys, with a 4.75 BS or -6mm offset... And he had to trim...
