TJ, there seems to be a manufacturing defect on your Jeep, they seem to have put your steering wheel on the wrong side.;)

Oh, and welcome to The Wrangler Board!

Small v8 should be able to achieve atleast comparable fuel milage to the stock 6 or better. Looks like you have some work left to do. The install looks very nicely done. By the way do you know a fella with a JK that goes by the handle of Tycho/ Jason Mardsen? If I am not mistaken he hails out of Christchurch also. He sure posts some very nice pics of his offroad exploits at times

From my research you should be getting better mileage with that motor then stock. I have the 5.9 but haven't driven it enough to figure out my mileage.


Also what air filter is that? I need something low like that.
