'06 4.0 6sp 3.07 gearing and stock tires. I usually get 19mpg on long road trips while my rural commutes average 17mpg, as measured by recording the odometer between fillups and by a Scangage.

I had WeatherTechs in my SuperCrew and I have QuadraTechs in my Jeep. Both are good choices and both US made if that is important to you.

Yep, 17ish on average. It has a 6-spd though, that might help. I also keep the weight down under 3,500#, the max my MH is rated for towing.

Yeah, I have one. I keep the top part on, but the sides and rear go on and off in minutes. I like it much better than the factory soft top. I'm in Oregon and it gets no rain inside.

I have a TJ Softopper and I would buy one again, but after nearly two years it still looks new so I wont be buying one anytime soon. I'd probably opt for the tinted windows next time around.
