Good decision. With the Hemi package there are other benefits as well, dual exhaust (all models) and also HD brakes (Limited/Overland).

Re: V6 or Hemi

Milous, so the V8's actually have larger brakes? Are they only fitted in conjunction with some form of "towing pack"?

Re: V6 or Hemi

here is my computer reading for my trip down to the desert for Easter...about 470 miles total (down and back, average of 62 mph because of traffic, mostly 75-80)...when I calc the MPG's manually I got 21.4! I was surprised how close the onboard computer was...and it was awesome to have the "FUEL SAVER" mode when going 75+ (seems like it cuts out at 82-84 mph)...I hit 85mph once with the FS mode! FYI - My Jeep is 2wd

My guess is maybe 1 to 1.5 MPG. I could get 18.5 MPG with my lift and 32" tires and MDS disabled cruising at 70. I bet it'd be close to 20 at around 60 mph.

Re: V6 or Hemi

I just got my CMR retuned and it was the first time I've seen 20 since installing a tune.

I got up to 21 once on a trip from Massachusetts to Pennsylvania.
