so does this mean that my jeep is some kind of freak or does this mean that my O2/ignition/exhaust/intake combo really add that much MPG? awesome

WOOOO! im finally done installing my new Yukon 35 alloy shafts. they were $18 each. walkin through JY, saw a grand without its wheels, something purple and shiny caught my eye on the rear end. Yep, found yukon alloy shafts in the JY, in process of removing i removed the diff cover and 30 billion pieces of spider gears fell out. took the shafts by the cousins machine shop to have em checked. straight as an arrow and no signs of twisting.

I'm running the stock 3.73's. I'd have to say though that i was reasonably happy with 18 considering i have a brother and a buddy with 4.0L xj's which are stock and they get around 18.5 highway, mine was pretty mixed highway/windy back country/city.

18.5 outta the V8, could be your upgrades, or i suspect the 4.0L just maybe has to work harder to haul the ZJ body around then a v8 does?... idk

The 4.0 and V8 both get similar mileage if you drive efficiently. If you're hard on it, however, the V8 will do a bit worse.

For all city, 13 is about right. Those getting notably better are doing less true city driving.

In all city driving, I can get about 12.5 - 13 from Mom's WJ 4.0, and 12 - 12.5 from the 5.9.
