Re: TJ gas milage

What kind of gearing are in the axles? What is your driving style? Manual or auto tranny? City or highway?

Re: TJ gas milage

Take the milage without the lift and it would probaly be about 2/3 of that.

Re: TJ gas milage

I built my best friend's 98 TJ back in 99...4.0L Automatic, 3.08s, 3.5" teraflex lift, and 33" BFGs. We didnt swap out the gears because I didnt feel that the Dana 35C was worth putting any money into.

50,000 miles later, that damn axle is still alive...and he gets an average of about 15mpg....but I assure you, he drives like a maniac...

Re: TJ gas milage

Not to attempt to change the subject, but speaking of that 35c, I have the same diff and I beat the [img]images/graemlins/cussing.gif[/img] out of it Its still alive with 33's. I have the same feeling. I have stock gears which I believe are 307, and wont put any money into it. Go Go Go 35 untill it snaps.

Re: TJ gas milage

My 98 w/ 4.0 and manual tranny, 3.07's and 32's gets 18.6 tank after tank. You have to remember to calculate the odometer differential into your mileage. With 32's it is 15 percent. 35's would be near 20 percent. Somewhere there's a chart showing the discrepancy. Don't worry about the low reading prior to figuring in the tire difference.
