Smile new to the forum

hello everyone has anyone ever used 100% acetone as a fuel additive to increase gas mileage? how about using bosch ir fusion? and what are the cons on lifting it to 4" and above?

4+ in and you will likely need a slip yoke eliminator (sye) and a longer cv drive shaft. this is to improve driveline angles botched by the lift. another thing recommended by most is an adjustable from track bar, and some would say adjustable front lower control arms would be preffered. but to my knowledge the only things you will likely need are the sye and shaft, as well as at least a track bar relocator, if not a new one. this is assuming you get a complete kit for the lift of course (springs, shocks, bumpstops, instructions (hehe), etc...) that help any???

acetone will not be a great idea of you ask me. jeeps have low gas millage so get used to it. adding an exhaust, intake, tb spacer, chip will help a little. seeing that you plan on lifting your jeep 4" plan on re-gearing for the tire size.

it's a hassle on visiting the local gas station every 4 days considering that's only from and to work no other trips anyways yup after i decide which tire size that will be the next step re-gearing it

Acetone will chew your fuel system up (injectors, hoses, gaskets, fuel pump.. all the goodies from start to finish) like hot knife through butter so saving 2-3 bucks at the pump tomorrow can mean paying few grand in a year or two.

I have a 4.0 5 speed with a custom intake, custom exhaust, bored out throttle body, 6" of lift and 35" tires on stock gearing and i'm getting about 18mpg every tank (was getting about 14 STOCK)

I've looked into most mpg savers and the HHO cell is on the top of the list (right underneath a motorcycle).

alot of people seem to not like skyjacker, but i have had a good experience. all i have is their shocks and spacers. i love the shocks, they are a little on the soft side, so its kinda bouncy on the road but it crawls over stuff great on the trail. i have no input on their springs. what's your price range? the RE Standard and Super flex lifts are 3.5 - 4.5in and everyone who has had them seems to love them so i would recommend that if you have the cash. also there is a DPG off road kit that comes complete and has OME shocks which are top notch
