Not willing to give up my tires (I may be in love with them) I guess I'm just too stubborn to save money lol. And thanks, I like your jeep as well

I really don't want to get smaller tires. I don't really have time to get smaller ones anyways as I'm leaving for Basic Training here in about 15 days

Yeah I want to work backwards on any if the upgrades or already made.

Look for someone to share the ride and share expenses, or it might even be cheaper to fly back and forth if you can borrow a car back in Alabama.
Or rent a car; I once put 5,000 miles on a rental in 2 weeks and it only cost $200.
Yeah, I may end up flying or renting a car

The two 12 inch subs I used to have installed in the back. I still have them but I put the back seat back in. Trying to decide if I should reinstall or not.

Mpg help in 98 wrangler Sahara edition

I have a 98 wrangler Sahara edition and I really don't want to get rid of it when I move to Texas for college. If I keep it ill have to drive back and forth between Alabama and Texas multiple times a year so I'm left with the problem of gas mileage. I have a 4 inch lift with 33 mud terrain tires, so that takes away from mpg. So my question is what upgrade can I make to help gas mileage? Would a computer chip work in a 98 model? Pipes? Etc?
