    Thats sweet I have always considered anything above 10mpg acceptable for me to drive but the more the better. When I had my FSJ it got 16mph with 33's and a 360 V-8 that was with some highway 3.31 gears though. That was the best 4x4 I have ever had on gas.

    I will not Tiptoe through life only to arrive safely to my death, with no scars or stories to tell. I will enter Hell sideways in a Burning pile of rubble, with a smile on my face asking if I can do it again !???

    how did you manage that. need more details(what mods, gearing, etc)
    If it can't be fixed with 100 MPH tape, 550 cord, zip strips, and a hammer it can't be fixed

    ummmm..... I think it's the 4.88 gears that do it. everything else that's on it i don't think would help gas mileage.

    The bravest of all Spartans was Dienekes. It is said that on the eve of battle, he was told by a native of Trachis that “the Persian archers were so numerous that, when they fire their volleys, the mass of arrows will block out the sun.”

    Dienekes, however, quite undaunted by this prospect, remarked with a laugh, “Good. Then we’ll fight in the shade!”

    Well my jeep is traveling from Germany to Texas on a 1/4 tank of gas, and I bet my MJ stickers have more miles than anyone elses.

    Serious though, that's pretty good mileage.
