Make sure you correct your speedo before calculating mileage. Bigger tires without correction make it seem like you've driven less distance and will make your mileage seem artificially low.

4.0L SOHC with stock lift and 33" BFG Mud's running through 5-speed auto and 4.10 gears = 14 city and 16 highway

... would probably be better if I could keep my foot out of it :)
