So my mom picked up a '14 WL Limited with the 3.6 & 8 speed auto over the weekend.
She gave me her stock white 5.9 Limited to DD. I now get to park my big black 5.9 & save a little $ on gas with the stock 5.9. Plans so far: clean it up, tune up, fluids & filters, 242 swap, door pins, ac evap/heater core, fix the little odds and ends, take the 30's off, put stock street tires on my 3rd set of 5.9 rims in storage, and just drive it. Why have 2 modded 5.9's when you can have a huge black one & a smooth riding, quiet, stocker to daily drive?
I have my jeep and a car. The car is better on gas. But the money that I do save on gas just goes to insurance on the car. So in the grand sense of things I save nothing if not pay more for the 2nd gas saver.
I live 10 mins from work, the slate 5.9 pulls 10 in town 14 highway. my mom averaged 16 with the white one. We pulled 22 mpg out of it loaded down driving back 12 hours from St Louis Missouri 2 years ago. Otherwise it pulls around 17 highway. I drove it all day yesterday, and this morn & noticed I wasn't burning as much fuel as the slate one does on the same trips.
30's on this one. Looking for stock size tires at the moment. I calculated it out & couldn't believe it on that last tank home got 22 mpg. Idk how this thing gets decent mileage but it does. A whole tank of fuel will last me exactly 7 days in the big 5.9 running to work, misc errands up and down the hills here. I'm gonna fill up the white one & see what I get.
