Got my first jeep

I just got a 92 wrangler islander. It came lifted with 16' rubicon wheels, and 30 goodyear mt/r wrangler tires. I want to get the lift back to stock and put smaller wheels/tires on it for better mileage since i don't plan on offroading or anything like that and intend for it to be more of a daily driver. The wheels and tires are damn close to new how much should I sell them for? And what would I need to get the lift back to stock?

you won't increase your mileage enough to make it worth the effort. you will get more from a complete tuneup.
but if thats what you really want to do check your local craigslist for price ideas in your area.

Agreed. Stock springs are pricey depending on what kind of lift you have. Not really worth the effort IMHO. Dropping down a couple inches on tires isn't extremely significant either. Complete tuneup for sure.

how much lift do you have? You shouldn't need any lift to clear 30" tires as stock tires are already 29" tall. Going back to stock sized tire isn't going to do much if anything to improve your gas mileage. Do you have pics of the jeep to show us how its set up?

Indeed. Service that yeep yourself and put that sucker in fifth! Go the speed limit and you'll have around 20MPG. That's what I get all the time on my three quarter tank.
