You guys kill me!

Here in the UK we pay the equivalent of $8.40 a gallon.

Jeep parts are a hell of a lot dearer too!

I think I need to emigrate, and maybe if our government doesn't change today I will.

You can change it, it's super easy, I have 33's on 3.73 gears and my speedo is only 2 mph slow at 65mph. Picked up a new speedo gear for 25 shipped from someone on this forum.

I did the math this morning and found that I get about 20 miles per gallon. I do mostly drive highway (55 / 65 mph) though.

I did my mileage with the 235 tires replacing the 205's that were originally on it, and I get 13 after doing all the size conversion math.
