Removed the stock cage over the weekend in prep for my new to me cage install. Finished removing the headrest mounts that are in the pictures. I'll post finished pics when I get there.

Typical for me, as well. I do a little better in the city, but not much. I managed a hair over 20mpg once with the scan tool plugged in for the whole tank.

Lots of coasting and figuring out the best shift points. I'll still learning it. It's a fun game for me.

I am stock except for the 32's.

Sans "sport" is growing on me.........thoughts of removing the "wrangler" and just leaving the raised Jeep sticker also. details....details
I removed all my stickers except Jeep and Wrangler. I think i like those but im going to black on mine instead of silver. Only having Jeep looks good too. As well as nothing at all. Personal preferences.
