It would be far less work to replace the mud tires with LRR tires, remove the lift kit, convert to 2WD, add a grille block and air dam, adjust the differential ratio as appropriate, and learn to drive for mileage. The OP would double his gas mileage and keep the vehicle that he obviously likes.
The vacuum gauge plus wheel covers helped increase summer 2015 mileage to 38.5 MPG, while summer 2016 mileage was 38.6 MPG without the wheel covers. Drove 33,021 miles 2016-2018 at 35.00 MPG.
