Worried about getting better mpg it's just nice not to have to fill up every 4 days haha.
The proper gears will definately help but will not get you back to stock economy. Reason being is even though you will have your mechanical leverage back after the re-gear you still have two big factors effecting you. One being frontal drag, now that you are lifted your Jeep has a larger frontal area which causes drag. Second factor is rolling resistance, due to larger tires more friction and more weight on the vehicle it will require more energy (ie fuel) to get that weight moving and keep it moving.
Will it improve your mileage over what you currently have now, more than likely, yes.
Nice looking Jeep by the way.
