I got about 17 to 17.5 doing 75-85 on and off the gas. I think if I put it on cruise I could do better on the highway... I am leadfoot around the city.

I really am. I think I over do it sometimes with lights. I just want my highs to closer match my lows with hids. And still want roof mounted lights.

I liked them My old bulbs dont fit in my new housings so you could always make me an offer... Not sure what size bulb your new housings take but mine are 9005xs... You could look at silverstars too, I have read and heard those are really bright... Got just under 250 miles on this last tank of gas... 246 to be exact and I coasted into the gas station on fumes....

Made a quick vid cruising on the highway today...


Enjoy...

75 @ 2000 rpms.... Lol I turn 2000 rpms at 65 mph.

I need H1's for the high beams. Sorry. Hahaha

"Trunk Musix" ? From what I could read/hear really quick. Glad to know I am not the only one who redid the audio in the Jeep. Headunit, Door Speakers, and Subs!

Right now here is how I am lookin
Headunit = Pioneer 4100ub with XM module

Rear Doors = 6.5 Infinity Reference 2 ways
Subs = 1 10" Kicker CVR wired at 2 ohms in a custom box
Speaker Amp = Rockford Fosgate P400.4
Sub Amp = Rockford Fosgate p300.1

What I want includes
Kenwood Excelon KDC 794
Focal Access 6.5 separates for the the front doors

I would aim your lights up a bit. They look a bit low to me. I know mine are higher.

I LOVE the headunit, the only step up is the 994 and that has bluetooth, that is the only difference. (I did not need bluetooth)

I wanted Kenwood eXcelons in the doors, but they would not fit. too deep.

Memphis speakers are kicking a** IMHO they are great. Even just running off the HU amp. (its such a high end headunit, so that helps) gonna amp them as stated.

Was going to go for components and didn't have enough funds for it.
