A 15" wiper blade fits perfectly and works a ton better...been using it on mine for years!

It's a Jeep, it's not supposed to work right all the time.

Hmm, I am not sure what you guys are doing but my 4.7l still gets over 18mpg. And that is w/ 2"BB, 31x10.5 15's, cold air w/ custom airbox, TB spacer and a stainless steel straight through magnaflow.Maybe its the platinum plugs. I am actually hoping to see gains from the high flow cats that will be going in. However I think the superchip tuner might s*** all over those previous numbers and leave me complaining amongst the rest.

I did see that superchips comes with an economy mode. so we know which setting i wont be using in the winter. (if only there was a drifting smiley)

There are ways to make it run lean actually. I did a 12hr road trip while running lean. Boy was that fun, couldn't rev over 3500rpm without getting fuel cut. Ended up being a clogged fuel filter. Turned a 12hr trip into a day long journey going 55-60mph.

SMUNNS just got one, and IIRC he went up significantly by adjusting the proper tire size, and setting it to a 87 octane tune (which I don't think is economic)...

Replaced pass. side Hub. Those three bolts are a pain if you have any kind of rust.

thats one dirty cooler to be holding your drinks/food in

I just took my WJ through the deepest snow its ever seen. Figured I'd turn around at a beach parking lot and it hasn't been plowed through all of the storms here so I just went for it. I was pushing snow with my bumper and in low range revving 3krpm just to keep momentum. At one point I hit a dip and got a whole bunch of snow fly up onto the hood haha. It was pretty awesome I had a good time
