Yeah the reason for me isnt so much for looks but to get through a lot of the tough/deep sandy spots on the coast for kayak fishing. I live in Fort Worth so its a bit of a drive to get there so I dont want to lose a lot of mpg and not be able to go as often
You also don't want to get stuck, pay a tow truck, and not be able to go as often
I lost anywhere from 1-3 mpg depending on the speed.
I find my biggest mpg losses to be in town driving (lots of accelerating) and at speeds of 70+
I have a carli leveling kit with 35" Toyo MT's, and at 60 I can still get 18, 65 around 17mpg, then 75 it drops to about 15...
Mind you I am not tuned or deleted, but I'd bet you can probably get around 20 still if you actually drive 65...
All that said, I LOVE my lift and wheels/tires. I feel it made a night and day difference with my truck. I haven't driven in mud, but a lot of snow and ice, and the MT's were better than could have been expected.
