If not chips, has anybody tried any piggyback fuel controllers? Does the ecu relearn around these, or do they actually work with the ecu?
I'm pretty happy with it so far. The stereo sounds pretty good. The ride and handling is nice too.
My father has a 4.7 Laredo and averages about 16mpg per tank. He'll get around 20 on the highway, but he does mostly country driving, so it's not as extreme as city. It's a 5000 pound Jeep with a V8 and the aerodynamic characteristics of a brick. It's to be expected
He has about 3500 miles on it now, and its starting to become more consistant. It'll get there.
Haven't heard of anyone doing a chip yet. There's a speedfreaks section on Jeeps Unlimited, you can check out over there. You may be able to drop an HO cam into it from an '04 WJ. It may work the same. Id head on over to speedfreaks and get the info.
