new to me lj

my wife and I have always wanted a wrangler...

we looked and looked and finally decided on the 2006 2dr unlimited! I need the extra trunk space for tools and gear, so it worked for us!

only had it a few days but enjoy almost enjoy everything about it...the exception being mpg(I drive 100 miles a day to work n back)
I've been reading on the forum and its great thanks so much for your posts you've all saved me alot of research. Its great to have so much information in one place!!

that's really amazing to get that kind of milage in any tj! Might have to try some different gears in mine...haven't checked mpg yet but 100 miles takes a half a tank and I bet that isn't very good.

I would think that anything that creates less resistance/friction whether it be oil, tires,you name.
if it operates smoother it's gotta be better
