What kind of junk are you trying to get rid of?[/quote]

Brushguard, stock suspension, jks quicker discos (as you know okcjeeper), soon to come 3" lift shocks that's all I can think of for now. I am also trying to get a lift for my dad's cherokee (4"-6") and I want a bunch of junk.

I was avg about 16-17 but that was with a bad fuel pressure regulator and a lift and larger tires.. When you add the larger tires the speedometer and odometer is off a bit so I could be getting better...

Not really sure since my speedo is off, but I would guess around 18 highway and 15 city with 31s. Maybe a little better, but I have a cleaned out cat and K&N. Not sure if it helps but it can't hurt.

Mine is still running stock. =[ Question. When I put bigger tires on it will mess with my speedo and stuff. Is there any way of fixing that on my ZJ?

Yes bigger tires will mess up your speedometer and odometer.. You will have to get the proper speedo gear for your GC. I don't know of anyone who sells them online so you likely will have to goto the dealership. Nice thing is even their they should not be much more then about $15..Also the dealership should be able to tell what size gear to get for the tire size and gear ratio of your axles..

Your speedo cable should send a message to your computer, and then your computer to the gauge. You can either put a new gear on at the transfercase or your dealership should be able to tell your computer that you have bigger tires. You can also buy the gadget to tell you computer this but I think it is high $$$. At least it was this way on my xj, but bigger tires do mess with your milage and speedo.

cheaper to get the speedo gear and replace it then to buy a recalibration tool or have the stealership recalibrate the computer..
