07 wk v6 better lights and mileage needed

There are two areas on my 07 V6 WK that need attentions ASAP! Any help is sincerely appreciated!

1. Lights- The factory halogen driving lights and fog lights leave alot to be desired and I need HID's yesterday.

Been looking at the Xenondepot 6500k swap. Has anybody done this and how do you like it? Do you have the correct part # to use as their website is not the best. Are their lights any better than the 08 and up factory HID's?

What fog lights to get?

2. Gas Mileage- What to do to get the best improvements?

Been thinking a Max Energy tuner and Cold Air Intake. Any experience/recommendations on tuners and CAI's or other ways to improve my mileage are welcome other than "keep you foot out of it" because that is not simply an option!

Re: 07 wk v6 better lights and mileage needed

Lights are well covered in the Lighting section.

Most obtain SLIGHTLY better milage by a free-flow muffler setup and a cold air intake.
I'm certain there's more info in the WK section on tuners for the V6 WK.

Regardless of what you do, changing your driving habits with economy in mind will always have the best results.

Re: 07 wk v6 better lights and mileage needed

Wow...would have thought this place had more helpful people with good information with actual experience. I know there are some good people on here. Not just a bunch of captain obvious aholes. I am looking for good information from people who actually know what they are talking about instead of people with gay green halo headlights and some douche named Schmegma who obviously would rather jack off his buddy with finger in his bum rather than give some useful information? you'd think you would have learned something by now with that many posts but thus another internet ahole.!

Just an FYI, I know jeeps have shitty mileage....I have owned 10 or more over the years. I am just looking for people with actual experience in improving their mileage with tuners, exhaust, intakes, etc. I'm not looking for some smartass, "just sell it or keep you foot out of it", if I wanted that I would drive a friggin prius! Feel free to insert your head up your bum and move on if you don't have any useful information.

Hey douchefuc k, I've asked the same question, and you have to come to the realization that the v6 in the WKs are crap, and you can't do anything about it! Just sayin, and we've been here for a while, we've seen these threads, and it's always the same thing

Re: 07 wk v6 better lights and mileage needed

Five posts and such negative vibes. Are you always such a miserable so b? There's lots of info on this site if you get off your butt and search before insulting everyone's intelligence. And there are other Jeep sites...maybe they would treat you better.
