No cons with the lift, for tire size i went 265 but expect a 2-3 mpg drop in fuel milage, I had some rubbing as well but I did trim a bit ( sander) of plastic and that is gone. I did buy some 17" aftermarket offset rims so I did not have to get wheel spacers for the stock rims.

In retrospect, At times I wish i got the 255 tire size for MPG but when I look at the jeep, speechless!

So.... did you get it? 07 Diesel here... about to buy the same lift.... I already have 265/70R17s.... so gas mileage will be the same as I get now I suspect...
