1st road trip tester + cb

well i went up to phoenix to go riding and shootin for the weekend. i towed a 5x8 flatbed trailer with a couple bikes on it. tested my mileage with the gps and im only off about 5 mph at 65 mph. my mileage doing 70 for 100 miles was about 13.5, not very good. i do have 31's but there seems to be some other reason why my mileage is so bad! maybe the trailer? anyways, i couldnt complain, the xj did GREAT. no vibes at 3 inches, no death wobble, cruise control works great. took the xj through about a foot and a half deep river crossing and it didnt skip a beat! i loove my jeep and i don't care about the gas mileage! also, picked up a 4.5 ft fiberglass cb antenna and installed that when i got home today. works great. mounted it opposite the radio antenna on the hood.
