From my experience, tires make a huge difference to MPG. Way more than gear ratio does.( I just regeared) If those are heavy, wide 33s, your MPGs are going to suck.

yeah I've been doing my research and if I do buy the jeep I would want 35's and a lift probably 2.5 inch based on my research that's the most you can probably go without changing other components and I will most likely regear

I had horrible mileage until my wife bought the AEV procal. Complete difference! And I don't really drive over 65.
