and cranking the T-bars isnt a lift....lift is if you replace front suspension parts to acheave a lift or body lift...you just adjusted your normal ride hieght

Yep I 100% agree. I noticed a HUGE difference in highway milage when I put my tonneau cover on. I also noticed being easy with the gas pedal (accelerating smoothly from stop signs, keeping the speed runs to a minimum, etc..) also saves alot of fuel. I honestly think my Ranger is better on gas then my old 99 Z24 when I drive like a 80 year old grampa. But then again. who drives liek that ALL the time ? LOL
