Hello all, just bought this one in December. Had about 149k on it and was all stock. Was getting terrible mileage and the MDS was messing up pretty bad. Did a couple oil changes with full synth 5-20, replaced all the plugs (had 3 kinds in there and one was totally wrong), added K&N FIPK cold air intake and the Traildash 2 tuner. Runs like a top now and am averaging just over 15.5 mpg on the high octane tune. Testing out non ethanol fuel soon to try and eek out some more mog.

Future mods include the Old Man Emu 2 inch kit, leveler for the front if necessary and some bigger tires. Also tossing the 3rd row in favor of subwoofers, amp rack and storage bin all without losing current cargo space and will look stock to peering eyes. Once I am allowed to do private messaging, I will ask which SRT header fits and add that with custom 3 twin inch exhaust out the rear. Of course, the build never ends...our YJ has been in constant change since 04.


Oh yeah...also adding JBA UCAs

If you get the OME on please post how it does. Looking at that as the right amount of lift without changing lots of other stuff. Prefer it over the spacers, but I’m admittedly total noob on lift, 4x4, basically cars. Cheers
