just wondering what kind of mileage everyone gets with varying setups. My '04 4.0 5spd TJ gets 23-24 on the highway with 235/75/15 tires and 3.07 gears. My fiance`s '89 Cherokee 4.0 auto gets 25 with 225.75/15 tires, unsure of its gearing, havent checked.

I want to go to 31x10.50's on my TJ, and maybe some lower gears. But it is my DD, and I drive 85-90 (round trip) miles everyday to work

Thats what I thought. I expected some folks to not believe me, but I've checked it many times on my work trips. I fill up before I leave, then the next day I fill back up at the exact same station. I dont understand it either.

In my '99 WJ (stock) I get 16 around the city and about 20-23 on the highway. Thankfully, FL serves some very flat terrain, so thats good on the long trips Smile

Gas milage. Bahahahahahahahaahahahahahah

I dont use that word in my garage. I use the how much gas am I going to have when I get to the next gas station. Hopefully enough so I dont have to push it.

Ditto. With 33's, 4.56's and all kinds of extra weight from the armor, bumper, roof rack and winch...I just stopped paying attention. Last time I checked it was about 12.5 in the XJ though...
