New Toy....

99 Wrangler Sport, 42K miles, 3" lift, 33" tires, crazy bumber, driving lights and of course....terrible gas mileage

It's auto but only so my sister can drive it around with her dog. I'm keeping the GTO as daily driver.

Can't wait for another blizzard

Thanks, I have the soft top and bikini top for it too.

I gotta figure out why I'm getting <10mpg, I'm pretty sure it's the tires. I might buy a set of 31" tires w/wheels and see if that does anything. Also gotta check if the gearing is stock.

Are you even feeling the need for OverDrive, if not, your gearing is stock. I would change the gearing before changing the tires. I belive a 4.56 is the preferred gear for 33" tires if I remember correctly.

summer is for no doors, and no top, keep the bikini top under the seat or rain or sunburn emergencies.

Oh and those wheels rock, I have the same ones on my cherokee.

Sweet. I'll look into it. I'd keep the wheels but change the tires, if anything. These things are huge and wide.

Since it's a 3spd auto, I'd like to swap the gear out for something more highway friendly as I'd be taking it out on trips very often.

nice buy! FYI right now, with the super cold weather.. i'm seeing 10-11mpg in mine with 4.0, AW4 trans, 3.55 gears, 31" tires. goes to 14-17 in the summer. i have never had a car that had that big of a swing between summer/winter, but o well. i love my jeep

also, does yours have OD or just 3 speed auto?? that will make a difference, but mostly its the tires.

I haven't done the calculations, but mine is also eating gas like a pig right now, if that makes you feel any better. I have 30" tires with a 2" lift and no clue what gear, alex could probably look it up though

I love my jeep just the way it is. When these tires wear out I'll consider going up a size and doing a small lift. Till then, rock it stock.

+1

I've been seeing some of the Mojave upgrades for GC's... that would be a fine way to commute to work.

Nice Wrangler!

Is the 4 wheel drive on the wrangler TJ and on the Cherokee (not grand cherokee) capable for use at all speeds? Can you shift the Cherokee into 4HI and leave it there to go 75 down the highway? When in 4x4, are the front and rear axle split 50/50 for power, or only when in 4lo? Do either come standard with locking front and rear axles, or was that only something you could get on optioned up TJs?

Just curious since there appears to be so many experts here.
