Yea you're pretty crazy for thinking that. I was getting maybe 15 when I was stock on 31s. Now my speedo is too off to tell, I just fill up after the light has been on for a while

definitely not selling it... I dont know what I was thinking. Going to try a tune up though, and maybe... just maybe... try to drive more conservatively

Great looking jeep bro, i have a Chili Red Tj also. Why do you wish you would have went with the 3" fronts and 2" rears? Also stock CA's and Trac Bars?

Thanks man, the 2" rears sit a bit high, the 3/2 combo would be fairly level without mucg weight in the back, and yes stock ca's and track bars. Tge axle didnt shift enough for me to need a track bar relocation bracket or adjustable track bar

If i had a bigger budget, it would see control arms with johnny joints or duroflex bushings

Do you think 3/4 spacers up front would level it out?

Looks great. Makes me wish I still had my 98tj. What gears are you running with the 33's. that could be part of the problem with the mpg.

Got my safari top in the mail yesterday, doesn't look like it will go on anytime soon though with all the rain.

Jeep is still the same, still driven everyday! haven't put any more money into it though. Thinking about selling to pay for college.
Check out the ad- I'd appreciate it.

Really has been great to me and I'll be sad to see it go

I wouldn't do it bro, I was in the same situation a couple years back. I think you'll regret it

Nice thread. I have the same color and have a similar plan in mind. I'll keep watching.
