From my experience, tires make a huge difference to MPG. Way more than gear ratio does.( I just regeared) If those are heavy, wide 33s, your MPGs are going to suck.

I just swapped Sahara shocks for Rubicon shocks ( I really think the red paint was the only difference). Both shocks had a stop so you couldn't over compress the washers.

I put 295/65/18 duratracs on 7031 procomp rims, and they fit with no lift. As I remember, I think they were 4.75 backspacing. You'd have to convert that to offset to compare with your figures. One...

The 2013 and newer engines did use a different oil pump, and had a viscosity change from 5w30 to 5w20. I would try to push the dealer for a long block (comes assembled with both heads already on)...

Excel=axle I presume
I would highly doubt the ratio had anything to do with an axle seal leak. The axle itself could possibly be damaged, but it should be removed and inspected to be sure.

Just to clarify, I meant if I had oem 3.73s I wouldn't have bothered to regear. I agree it doesn't make sense to go from 3.73s to 4.10s

Yup, my 3.21s absolutely sucked with 33s. I regeared to 4.10s, with little, if any hit to the fuel economy. Had I known, I would have got 3.73s to start with.

I went with 4.10s, but currently have the stock 32s on. It's feels perfect. If I was going to 35s, I would have gone with 4.56. I'm very impressed with the fuel mileage I'm getting, it's really no...

It states the left head only. The left side is the head on the drivers side. I sure hope you didn't have to pay for the repair. You would be eligible for a refund if you did.
