Usually I have about 130-140 miles by the halfway mark.

Then again who knows, I'll probably be driving and it will randomly drop to empty.
I can get about 160-180 miles per half tank. Usually hit about 60 miles before needle drops below F.

yea i put spacers in the front of my jeep and i cant get the back shackle off so its higher in the front now..may try cutting it out with a grinder though...LOVE ANGLE GRINDERS AND DREMELS

So many people to thank here's a start to the list
Spidertrax, Yukon, rustys, warn, branik, PSC, advance adapters, Bad wheels, interco, essentially off-road. And many more

Most of all thanks too Ian Johnson and the xtreme off-road crew for all their work, and 4 wheel to heal for their part in it too.

haha mine was that way for awhile too til i put the 5.5" springs in the back. with the 1.5" shackle and the wrap on the leaf springs it wouldve netted me arounf 8.5" of lift without the tire carrier but sits perfect now. well, time to go hack away at it more.

oh yeah, drivers side u-joint is pretty bad now too..who knows if it will make it this weekend but my buddy is bringing spare shafts so we should be good.

Having all new rear brakes put on by the first year auto students below me. (There in brake class right now). It's a tad scary. lol I've had to come show them what they're doing wrong a few times now but there learning and thats all that matters. My old instructor is making sure they don't screw up to bad.

no prob man it sheared off when it flopped??? oh wow that bolt was definitly in need of replacement lol

i just got my IRO tracbar in today..got it centered, jeep still leans but i think its due to the subs in the back..probably should center them haha. still have to do my oil change, then clean up the fenders and i should be ready for the trip!

yeah thats my best guess of what happened to it. i can't be sure, i just know it was MIA when i loaded it on the trailer and steering was funny, would not turn right, but left was fine. it has a drop bracket on teh track bar that would rotate around when turning right, and back where it should be when going left.
