Default well looks like she's going to be a trail rig after all

well w/t the price of gas at a 1.45 a liter about 4.20 a us gallon

she's going to be trail only

the only way to justify the money she's burning and the amount of crap on her and I'm still not done

Nice! Later this year I am looking for a new daily driver as well, and the JK will be a secondary pleasure vehicle only. Which is good, because I have racked up about 17K miles in less than a year.

fuel on Long Island, NY... I paid $4.29/gal yesterday to fill up.. I did some math, and the fuel prices dont justify buying a secondary vehicle.. the insurance and maintenance alone dont make it worth it.. and forget about buying the vehicle itself.

I love my JK and the price of fuel will never make me stop driving it.

X2 I have other vehicles but when I hear people talking about buying a second car to use as a DD just to save some money on fuel it makes me laugh, none of these people are taking into consideration all the other expenses. I average just over 16.5 MPG so even if you were to buy something that got 10 more MPG how many years would it take to justify the 2nd vehicle? Many, many more years than most people think.

Gas-$4.00/gallon
Fuel additive in hopes of increasing MPG-$5.00
CAI also in hopes of increasing mileage-$280
Riding around with no top, no doors and 35's-priceless!

hey MAW
get rid of those giant meats and you will get better economy
i get about the same as what your mini van gets with mixed driving.
I'll sell ya back those rubi tires just will mark up price for fuel used to pick them up and storage OH AND ST HUBERTS MEAL....lol

seriously go out and buy up some ones sahara or x tires and use those during the week and swap out on weekends with practice you can get really fast at it.

i can do a 5 tire rotation in 20 minutes electric impact gun, tork wrench, hi lift.

on your unlevel drive ya it may take a bit longer.
cheers
