G-Force They are rated to 55 psi. So I thought I would give it a try and harden them up a bit. I had been running them around 35 psi. Ride is rougher, but I think the harder tire drags less. I know they will wear faster, but I am due to replace these now anyway.

What pressure do you recommend?

Really? that seems crazy high to me???

G-Force I have a 2.5" lift with 31" X 11.5" all terrain tires filled to 50 psi. My upstream O2 sensor was bad and my plugs, rotor and cap were all truly in need of replacement. I did the wires for good measure.

I don't have a cold air intake and I have an aftermarket, but stock exhaust setup.

jasonduke5 I wish i fot 18 in my TJ. i did wheb it was stock but with the 3 inch lift and 31s it dropped right to about 15. My is the 4 banger also

Big Sarge G-Force..... What lift and tires are you running?
03-20-2013 08:50 AM
Timberline Glad you got that 10 mpg jump. If the engine light was on, I'm guessing it was the oxygen sensor that was crapping out on ya!!

Gas mileage

I know this has been beat to death, but my TJ 4 cyl dropped to about 8.5 mpg and the check engine light was on. I ran by my local Auto Zone and they did a free diagnostic. I ended up spending about $105.00 for a new oxygen sensor, cap, rotor, plugs, and wires. Two hours later the check engine light was off and I was getting about 18.5 mpg!

Way to go me!
