Out on the trail

Just thought I would post a few pics and some random details from my weekend/first light off road drive with my 14 JKUR.
Weekend trip, 220 miles on interstate (both ways). 1 full day trail driving and camping, maybe 20-25 on trail, then back home.
I run stock, 3:73 Rubi.
@70mph, turned just a hair under 2400rpm. (Does that seem right ?) At pump, I checked in at 18.1mpg at end of trip. Averaged about 15mpg on trail(4wd hi & lo) and hit 18.9 on interstate. we were completely loaded down on eth interstate with gear and small hitch basket of wood. MPG was going up pretty steadily but I exited off. Total, about 240 miles driven. KY rolling hills on I-75.
Just thought I would give those details because there have been a lot of discussion lately on those issues.
Great trip and I couldn't be happier with how it preformed. No problems to report. Didn't use the lockers yet, but kept the swaybay disc'td. pretty much always on the trail. Not sure I needed to, but it just seems smoother on the large rocks. Only a few pictures of the jeep, because it was so cold my passenger wouldn't get out to take many!! I braved the elements and got the night shots.

Thanks guys. NFGZ, it is a Expedition 25 three man. Just two of us, but with nightly temps 6 degrees, we wanted some extra room to bring stuff inside!
Great trip.... Beautifully clear nights.

Just read up on it, sounds like a pretty awesome tent.

I relocated to Florida a little over 5 years ago and lost the need for winter tents. Or so I thought ... we've had some cold weather here past few days, high of 30 yesterday! haha. I love my 2 NF tents though, cant say they've ever done me wrong!
