Mine (Aug 11 build) sits at 12,000 miles exactly. Quiet ticking equal volume from all sides of the engine, it sounds very similar to my Civic SI so I'm assuming lifters/injectors/something normal. With 33x12.5's, 6spd and 3.21's I have a lifetime average of 20.8 mpg, and with every single fuel receipt since new I'm keeping track of any MPG loss (nothing so far, it's actually getting better with age).

My 2012 JKUR is getting one of the cyl heads replaced now. It has 21,000 miles and putting out P0304 code. I am concerned with them replacing only one head. Also my MPG is 15.3.

Haha I too had a civic si, I have 6 speed and 3.21s how is the power loss with the 33s? I wanna run them and I'll eventually throw a set f 4.10s in there

I don't want to get off topic, but it's not bad at all. The power loss is definitely noticeable, but I do a lot of highway driving and typically cruise in 6th at 65, 1600rpm or so. SE Mass is pretty flat and the speed limit is 60 so I have no trouble keeping up/passing traffic. The worst part is getting it moving in 1st without being too hard on the clutch, so if I'm out of the beach (a few times per week) I use 4L.

28,000 miles on mine. It's ticked since I bought it. But no problems other than that.

2000 miles on mine and it's running great so far. I plan on changing the oil every 20k miles or so.


Just kidding.
