If mileage is one of your concerns my suggestion would be to not lift it and put bigger wheels and tires on it. Not only will that have an adverse affect on your fuel economy it will also cause other parts to wear faster and front end components on these big trucks are NOT cheap.

Just my .02 on that one...
