I got 265/70/17 Nitto Terra Grapplers and they look plenty big enough with that size lift. That's your best bet for gas mileage & good performance off road IMO. Power loss is minimal if any at all.

Not really... 285s look perfect when running A 3" lift IMO... I'm glad I went with 285s instead of 265s.

285's do look good, no dispute there. 265's would work just fine though, and will NOT look to small, and in your case with the 2.7, would make even more sense.
