Gas Mileage

Hey guys. I am brand hammer new to the forum and new to Jeeps as well. I have always admired Jeeps and finally decided to purchase my first one. I just got my 2002 X Apex edition 4.0 last Friday and I absolutely love it!! Anyways, it has a 2 1/2" lift with 33's so gas mileage isnt the best, nor is power. 5th gear is useless for any inclines on the highway, and as far as MPG goes, I am getting around 14 MPG. So I was wondering what you guys might suggest to improve MPG and possibly regain some power.

Search the forum for threads dealing with Gas Milage, No Power, Need to Re gear etc. You will have days of responses to read.

Thats pretty good. It seems like the best way to regain MPG and power is to re-gear. I dont plan on doing a lot of offroading, so it would be cheaper to do just the rear, but then again, I never know when I will need 4wd. How much was it to do your gears?
