Haha probably 29 if it had roll bars, which is my buddy Chris.

Explorer #22 is Nate and he runs Star Car Central.

Haha not quite as well as we hoped. Got a flywheel turner at tops auto for 18$ after 30 mins of failed strapping.

Anyone have a pelican case or some small crates/boxes they don't need?

I'm looking for some cheap/free things to paint InGen and JP Logos on that would look good on display with the Jeep at shows. They don't have to be new or shiny, just something that looks like it would be on a safari or hauling company equipment.

Even a 55gallon barrel would be good.

I drive from Fullerton to Irvine everyday (roughly 20 miles) so Gas can be costly... So I have learned to really stretch every MPG I can. I'll watch it drop like a log going home though...

There's benefits to the JK if it's your daily driver.

It sucks!

Need a gas saver (motorcycle) to save on gas, so I can pay off the jeep. But I can't get another vehicle until I pay off the jeep. Vicious cycle!

I'm pretty sure my YJ gets 12gpm. My needle goes down 1/8 just driving to INNOUT like 2.5miles away haha.

My crown Vic gets me about 21-25mpg though, but I love driving the jeep. Damn money sink.

My Lexus gets 25 combined with a 5speed manual, and my jeep gets 11 mpg with 4.56 and 60lb 31's with a 5 speed. I'm hoping my mpg will increase with 33's.

Jesus you must be wrapping that thing out like crazy lol. I probably get around 16-18mpg with mixed driving/AC. 33's and 3.07's.

When the hell did you get a Lexus??
