I'm running a MetalCloak 3.5" True Dual Rate lift, MC fenders and 37's on my '21 ecodiesel and still getting 24+ mpg on the highway (stock gears) and 20+ mixed driving. I had issues with a loose front track bar right after I installed the lift, but since getting it tightened down, zero issues. Nice ride. I will likely end up getting the Banks Derringer or a GDE tune, but so far the diesel has barely noticed the 37s...I haven't towed yet with them yet, but still don't think my 1,500 lb trailer is going to bother it much and still be better than the 11-13 mpg I got in my manual transmission Gladiator with 4.88 gears and 37's.

I am pretty much running the same setup, only with 35 inch tires for now.

Nice, what brand rock sliders are those?
The sliders are Rock Slide Engineering. I went with the pop out step because without the step it's close to 26 inches to get in. The step is 16 inches off the ground. The steps have the optional armor and have taken some serious hits and keep on working.

Ok, I was looking at your sliders and was thinking they are part of your lower body protection. I have the LOD sliders which are OK, but do not offer any body protection if they flex into the lower rockers.

The 2nd photo above is definitely "The Steps" on Black Bear Pass. Not sure about the first picture . . .

Would be curious to know how our diesel's sit compared to the Extreme Recon editions (less the tires). From what I think I heard, the XR package is 1.5 over stock. Given that the diesel should be very similar in height, correct?

Here is her '21 with a Mopar 2" lift, Mayhem Warrior 8015 18x9's with 18mm offset and 35x12.5x18 Ridge Grapplers. She is very happy with it. I will be ordering one soon and adding the same lift but going with AEV Borah wheels and 37's.
