Tbe popular answer is gonna be buy a prius you don't buy a jeep for mpg.

With that saod check for codes to see if you have ant bad sensors that aren't throwing a hard code

With 35's and that big of lift you won't get good gas mileage, but if you regear you can get better mileage and better performance, but that costs money.
Are you positive it has 4.10's?
It's not tough to recalibrate the speedo, so you know just how fast you are really going and mpg you are actually getting.

It's not a race car, so if you are easy on the skinny pedal and shift better you should be able to increase your mpg slightly.

Hmmm I don't think it's a crime to want better fuel economy? Nahhh I didn't think so. But forgive me for trying to save some money. My fault codes were 12 24 and 55 which is the tps sensor

Well you definitly want to check and/or replace your tps. Yes it cant effect milage as it helps determine how much fuel is being pumped into the engine. Also check for vacuum leaks. I got a TPS code when I did my engine swap. The real problem was actually a vacuum line I capped off because I broke the line and was having trouble finding a replacement. Once I replaced that line all was well again.

Yeah I'll probably get it next week but I figured wur new gears I'd be getting closer to 15-16 rather then 12-13

I'm not completly positive it's got 4.10s that's just what the guy told me when he sold it to me. I was going to check but I'm getting it realigned. Do I have to go get the speedo reset or can I do it myself?

Nah your mpg is pretty close to what it should be. Drive slower.

Yeah, I have no lift & stock tires, if I drive it like I stole it, I get 14-15. If I drive like an old man, I get 17-18.

Actually it would be higher. 35's will put your odometer off by close to 20% so if your reading 100 miles you actually did 120. I have 35's with 3.73 gears and I dropped from 16+ to about 14.5, not bad really since these gears are not a good combo. I'll switch to 4.56 or 4.88 when I do my axle swaps. Your figures adding the 20% would put you about the same 14.5 + or-
