I have a 2" leveling kit (in front, nothing in the rear) and I'm running 295/60/20 (34") Nitto Trail Grapplers.I lost about 1.5 mpgs. I would guess with a 4" lift raising the truck even higher you'd probably lose a bit more mpgs.Finding lighter tires would help a little too. MyTrail Grapplers are 10 ply and weigh a ton.
Something else to consider, 33's will look pretty small with a 4" lift.

Storm is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
Is that the factory wheels?

What front level kit did you do?

Yes those are the factory 20's that are optional on FX4's and FX2's.
Autospring 2" leveling kit.
