You're throwing money away on a chip... and may other "power upgrades." Keep it stock.... most power upgrades you'll find aren't going to give a good power to $ payback ratio. They will however, lighten your Jeep by the amount of money they take out of your wallet.

Don't forget that you are driving a jeep....a body which has a drag profile that is just slightly cleaner than a 4x8 sheet of plywood perpendicular to the direction of travel.....going faster only uses a logarithmic amount of fuel....putting in a chip just increases that curve...

Is the muffler too loud for you? I'm running a generic turbo muffler...sounds just fine and is a fraction of the cost....and when I crush it on a rock...I don't feel bad....
