Re: OME HD lift or no?
Well you're gonna lose mpg that's a definite. What you lose tgem more from is the tires though. Its really up to how youre gonna use it. If you wont be offroad more than once a year i honestly wouldntinstall the springs. What you can do now is either do the Install of them anyway if you decide to. Go with the 265/70 and then purchase a tuner to calibrate for the bigger tires to help keep your mpg the same. If not you'll def drop 2-3 Mpgs. Since you installed the struts and shocks already you could always just sell the springs easy. And go with a little bigger tire than stock like a 255 or just a more aggressive AT tire in 245(stock).
This is speaking from my experience of having a 2"daystar lift and 265/70s I went from 19mpg to 16. A tuner would probably get me back to 18 but I don't wanna pay $300 for one. Ha. And the daystar is on the shorter side. The OME is on the taller side. Ps. If you decide to sell the springs, PM me.
Good luck deciding. Let us know the plans! And thanks for your service in the USMC
