how much does your lift affect your mileage!

I have a new 6.4 cc and am contemplating two lift options, the first is a leveling kit with a 2 inch block in the rear and 35" tires, the second is a 6" radius arm lift with 37" tires. I was just wondering how much each of these would affect my mileage over stock. I am leaning towards the bigger lift.

What are you guys getting....really ?

I'm pricing a 4" lift to replace my 6.5" right now.

Previous owner told me it got 20-21 mpg off the dealer's lot. Dropped to 12-13 when he lifted it and put on the 35s.
