5000 worth of suspension from pro comp? Hmmm.. Not sure about that one.

200 miles to a tank is what I average.

Not too much, just waiting for the weather to get better so I can finally take the hard top off and put on the soft for the first time. A side from that, just watching too much news on gov't scandals in our senate and mayor rob ford in Toronto about aledgedly smoking crack cocaine lol (the guy is total idiot). Everything else is pretty quiet at the moment

If you're uncertain if you're speedo gear has been changed, get one that fits your current setup. I put mine in when I realized that the previous owner hadn't after he lifted it and put on 33s. This will help you get a more accurate idea of what you has mileage is. After I put mine in, I'm in the neighborhood of 300 miles per tank. It's good enough for me. That's about the same total mileage as my STI I had before the Jeep.
Frankly though, don't worry so much about it. Enjoy the Jeep. It gets crap has mileage but makes up for that in fun points. Don't be too upset with guys telling you to just sell it. The long time guys here get tired of answering the question. It's been asked repeatedly and answered repeatedly.

Run out about 25' of winch line. Get close to 18 wheeler and attach to his bumper. slowly let off the throttle and take up the slack. when cable is tight, shift to neutral and coast. You'll get great mileage.
I haven't worked out the disconnect if you need to exit and he's going cross country.

In the rural area I live in, the cost of living is inflated and people dont make much. Jobs are not existent, we pay taxes for our medical so its not free(not everything is covered by OHIP in this province). The only medical service I could get for the last 20 years is at the emergency room. Not sure where your getting your facts but I believe you folks have it better.
