skyjacking = gas guzzling?

Ok, so I want to eventually lift my jeep (possibly 3 inches). It isn't something I can afford to do right not, but I was wondering, How much does it really hurt the gas mileage? I mean, I know I don't get good gas mileage arleady (but who cares, I drive a JEEP!) but I was wondering how much its going to affect the mileage, so I know if i need to look at less of a lift.

Anything you do to change your jeeps height or add weight is going to negatively impact your fuel economy. If your asking then you are concerned with this and you should make sure your going to be ok when you do lose some after lifting or adding bigger tires.

Having said that going up a few inches doesn't make a night and day difference. That'll come with new meats.
