I'm sorry, but you were fed incorrect information. The proper way to fit 35's on any jeep is by using 61 Beetle radiator caps as a budget boost. These radiator caps use superior German technology that we just don't have yet.

Yes, I know. VW actually used wiper actuators for their radiator caps.

I replaced my muffler bearing last week. While I was at it I changed the blinker fluid and fixed the scavanahiastus as it was all caddy-wumptus. Man, what a difference!! I can't even keep the stickers on it anymore cause it's so fast. I now get 99.867533 mpg and can climb large obstacles in a single bound!

Work with enthusiasm as though you were working for the Lord rather than for man.

Under normal driving conditions you would be correct. But the additional boost allows me to coast farther up the hills here which results in more hill to coast down as well, hence the additional 0.100003 mpg.

Did you factor in the parasitic drag from a misaligned or worn muffler bearing? Because with a drag coefficent of .4% at 70 mph with a 25 mph cross wind at an ambient temp of 68 degrees and the underhood temps right at 210 degrees the thermal coefficent would drastically low you down on an up hill coast if the grade is 7 percent or lower.However if you install the new jeep forum sticker you can forget all the above as you will inherent the many magical qualities the sticker brings you like at least 30 extra hp and 25 extra mpg.

Yes I did. Not only do I have the JF sticker mod applied, I also have the extreme terrain JF sticker mod applied for the extra "wow" factor.
