Gas mileage?

Hey guys I was wondering what kind if gas mileage a manual tj lifted 5.25 inches on 35s with front and rear bumper, rock slider, and 8500 pound winch would get? I'm not worried about it or anything I'm honestly just curious. Thanks!

good luck. nothing more aerodynamic that pushing a piece of plywood down the highway. I've had my CJ for 15 years and still have no idea. When it gets low, just add more gas.

Look it's a 4.6!

Lots of variables. Roughly though should be able to do 13-15 in town and 16-18 on highway if well maintained and don't drive like an idiot.

My LJ gets 12-13 on the hwy with 4.88 gears doing 65 to 70.

the gears you have and how prudent you are with the skinny peddle will have the most effect.
