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!!

:jawdrop:How?? Is that even possible?? That's insane! How fast do you drive Cptc223?

Welcome and congrats! I would like to know how you are 23+ mpg. I am no where near that. I have 06 LJ with 31" tires

I average about 15-16 all in town driving on an 2001 sport with 32" tires and my jeep is no where as built as yours!

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.

Cptc223 09-19-2013 07:24 AM

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

4.0lj 09-19-2013 10:08 AM

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

Cptc223 09-19-2013 10:12 AM

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

good point

Quinnzeeskimo 09-19-2013 03:40 PM

Well you're all getting better than my 77 CJ7... I get about 10 or so. Maybe 12 on the highway... so don't feel bad about getting 20 lol! :P
