Which is why it was moved.

We are trying to build up an off road section and break everyone from the bad habits of hiding out in there platform specific forums. This isn't about WK vs WK2 or GC vs Wrangler. This is about love of off road, lifts and big tires. This is about what a jeep was built for.

The more of these WK2 i see lifted the more I want one. You guys are doing some great stuff with the platform.

Add that to your mileage before dividing your fuel. Not trying to offend but using the EVIC is not the most accurate way of figuring out fuel consumption. When driving a Jeep fuel economy should be the last concern anyway. Our Hemi Overland isn't great and my JK on 37s is worse, it wasn't a concern when we bought them. Glad you're happy with the OEM tires I like bigger tires for looks and performance. Sorry to high jack your thread. Post pics.
You can keep calculating by hand, and I'll keep using EVIC. As long as one is consistent, it doesn't matter. I never top off at the station. When the pump shuts off, I quit filling. Unless I always fill at the same station, same pump, I believe the EVIC will be more accurate. Do you really think every pump will shut off at the same point? Like I said, I reset after every fill. I hate the OE tires, but the size is fine for me.

I'll be honest, I've always been WK1 biased. This section is slowly changing that. I wanna see some videos of the WK2 off roading before I change my mind about them though. Keep it up guys! Moar pictures! Moar videos!

I was a little bias myself. I'd log in and go straight to WK2 (first time Jeep owner). Now I'm diggin the WK and CJ's too. I never really cared for off road before but I got bit and now I'm hooked. I guess if its lifted and kicking mud, put it on the menu.
