    Hello, I am new to this forum and I'm looking for some knowledge from people that are more familiar with OBS GM vehicles than I am.
    I'm in the market for a new daily driver and I think it would be fun to get an off road capable vehicle that I could take camping in the Sierras. I really like the OBS 4 door Tahoes and I would get one and put a ~3 inch lift on it with some 33x10.5 tires. While this would be a fun car off road and fit my camping desires I am concerned that the gas mileage would be too bad to deal with as a daily driver.

    What gas mileage would I get with a set up like this?
    Whats the minimum I would have to lift the Tahoe to fit 33s without any major trimming?
    What suspension lifts would you suggest?
    Would re-gearing the diffs be essential with 33s?

    Thanks!

    If you are concerned about in town fuel mileage for some reason you will definitely want to regear both diffies
    Not to mention drivability.
