Ehh, not really. Wasn't expecting one. I may have but didn't really notice and now with the bigger tires and lift it's all but gone.

That's the plan here soon. Work is preventing that at the moment. Dirty pictures will come soon.

Right now it looks to be about 2 mpg overall combined hwy/city.

I don't have anything hooked up yet, but the switch is a 3 way switch which will allow the added reverse lights to be off totally, manually on, and then on only with the stock lights (when I put it in reverse). Nothing too crazy, just have to run a wire up from one of the reverse lights to the relay to activate with the stock lights.

The way I look at it, I wasn't exactly getting the best mpg before, so 2 mpg isn't going to kill me. Granted gas will be up to $4 a gal here soon, but to me the jeep's look is totally worth it. As long as I stay in the double digits I'll be happy, and there's no way that's not happening.

I have adjusted my driving habits now too. I tend to drive slower now (5-10 mph slower). I think of it going from a road bike (stock) to a beach cruiser (lifted/tires). She just coasts down the road, no need to be in a rush.

Re: My Jeep thus far..

Got a few more goodies this week.

As everyone has said, these were a PITA to put on. So far I like them.



Also, I finally received my 4xguard 12 bolt diff guard. Their customer service has been top notch since I ordered over a month ago and it ended up getting to me sooner than they had originally planned. Great construction, solid welds.





It will be going on when I do a full lower fluid change. And yes, I realize I still need another quart of gear oil. I bought out all that Autozone had. I even got a great deal on them. The woman ringing me up was shocked at how much each quart was ringing up ($17.99) and said that she would get me a discount to help out. Ended up getting a quart for free! Not bad!



Also got in the front differential front bushings to fix the clunk I have when shifting the trans.



That will keep me busy for a week or so. I have a billet tech catch can coming to me later this week and will install that next week.

That is true. I am now dreading the bushing change after hearing how tough it is to get the front drive shaft off. I have no impact to use at my disposal so a breaker bar and brute strength is going to have to do.
