The reason I ask is that I'm running 285/70/17 BFG A/T's with my OME lift and at 33 psi it seems like the tires may be just a tad under-inflated...Visually and driving they just seem a little 'squish'
With bigger tires like that you should air them up more. on my xj i run 31x10.5x15's and had to bump them to 38psi to get them right. they feel better driving and the mpg's are slightly better.

P.S. DON'T draft big trucks! It REALLY PISSES US OFF!! Plus its hard too see someone on our ass, we can only see your mirrors sticking out past the trailer.Also if we have to slam on the brakes....... where you gonna go??

Mine did. The increase was more noticeable on the highway then around town but I definitely had an increase between 2-3 MPG.

Because if you get there faster, you use less gas. Right?

I have the 5.7 and have the AFE which I can speak very highly of for my engine. I know they make one for the 4.7 but I can not speak to that directly. As good as mine is I can't imagine this One wouldn't be just as good.
