new to me lj
my wife and I have always wanted a wrangler...
we looked and looked and finally decided on the 2006 2dr unlimited! I need the extra trunk space for tools and gear, so it worked for us!
only had it a few days but enjoy almost enjoy everything about it...the exception being mpg(I drive 100 miles a day to work n back)
I've been reading on the forum and its great thanks so much for your posts you've all saved me alot of research. Its great to have so much information in one place!!

What are you getting gas mileage wise? I'm running 33's with a 4 inch long arm lift,bumpers,winch rockers, and fender/quarters
I'm getting 23.6 mpg on the highway.
I also have the 06 LJ
I'm running 4.56 gears that help a bit that estimate is going 70 mph only engine modification is flowmaster exhaust & high flow cats. I've tested the mpg on 4 trips recently all came out to 23.2 or better my lj has 90,000 on it.

Also Bosch spark plugs and synthetic Mobil 1 if that really matters ;p

that's really amazing to get that kind of milage in any tj! Might have to try some different gears in mine...haven't checked mpg yet but 100 miles takes a half a tank and I bet that isn't very good.

I'm running royal purple 75-140 synthetic gear oil.
My dad has a 99 tj he's only getting 16 on the highway lol I'm lucky I guess

<< new jeeper... Syn gear oil helps milage? I know syn motor oil does...

I would think that anything that creates less resistance/friction whether it be oil, tires,you name.
if it operates smoother it's gotta be better :p
