Default 3.0 Power with 3" spindle lift?

Very quick question for 3.0 owners. Most threads focus on MPG, but I'm only concerned about power:

All I want to know is how much is POWER affected by a 3" spindle lift on a 3.0?

I have 31s and a 3" AAL lift on the back. Those 2 mods didn't noteicably affect power. That was a good thing, because these 3.0s, while bullet proof, aren't crazy powerful to begin with. I actually think MPGs are the same too. In the snow/rain they slip a little more without added weight, is all.

Thanks!

Power shouldn't be affected with a lift spindle

The effect on power comes from the change in tire size. Both the effective change in gear ratio, added weight of the larger tire, and the larger tires increased rolling resistance.
