Well if you spend $300 on a cold air intake and it raises your mpg by 1, you'll have to drive ~10,000 miles to pay for it. It's just not worth it.

Regear, it's around 1500 for a shop to do that though

Regearing your axles is your best bet for better mpg. I would hold off on other mods until you regear.

What motor do you have? 4banger or I6?
I've got the straight six and if I drive like a granny I get 14. If I drive like an ass I get about 12-13. So I don't even care how I drive now because it doesn't make a difference for me.

I've always heard cold air intakes don't do much but it's worth a try I guess.

I heard a snorkel is about the same as a cold air intake. If that's the case id rather do that BC it'll look better. Wat do y'all think?

You will have to cut a big a$$ hole in your jeep and spend $300 for something that probably won't help at all for better mpg. Like I said earlier If I was you I'd just save your $$ to regear. That's what I'm doing. Also if the jeep is sluggish, regearing will fix that.

You buy new gears for the axle. I found a chart in a 4wd.com catalogue that tells you what your gear ratio should be. Ill have to try and find it and I will post a picture. I'm sure there are tons of threads on here with info on regearing. I'd start reading up.
