JeepCrawler98 With the right gearing you can push em up to about 21 if you stay at 65 or less. One of my wheeling buddies who drives out to New Mexico every year for the Chile Challenge says that this is what he's getting. This is on 35"s and 4.56's

I thought that was the least I could do for Frank.....he let me drive the Rubi today

of course I should have known there was a catch....he was much too quick to say ok, when I asked to drive it!!!

JeepCrawler98 It holds 75 comfortably in 5th gear, and on a good day will cruise at 90 all day long I swear my 2.5L has been blessed with extra powers from the Jeep gods.

Well sure you do but who wants to only go 25mph...

mud707 I am running 01 sport 4.0l with a 4 inch lift and 33's and I get about 19 mpg and that is up and down mountain roads. The lift and tires only use 2 gallons more for the same distance.

97-00 mpg

Im in the market for a 97-00 tj and was just wondering what kind of fuel economy these jeeps are getting nowadays - I had a 90' 4cyl manual but I drove it pretty hard and had tires that were too big for the motor with the gearing that it had, it didnt get great mileage.
