Which engine/transmission? Jeeps are never going to get good mileage but you need to have the optimal gearing/power for the tires you are pushing.

Not being a smart a$$, but wouldn't this just be a somewhat pricey visual reference for driving with a lighter foot? I'm sure it's not too expensive, but I couldn't imagine it making enough of a difference to offset the money and time having to install it. Afterall, it is still a jeep.

Throw the photoshoppers a bone and post your executed mods, we would like to see the after pics. Copy and paste the url. http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f59/executed-photoshop-mods-1417032/

It tells you things your foot can't. Quite effective.
