Ha! No, I work for a living, but fortunately, I don’t have to drive far. You’re right though, about 8 MPG, 10 on a good day, 12 if I have the wind at my back going down hill lol. But man on man, the ol’ truck has power when you need it!
I really like your Jeep my friend! I had intentions to restore mine but life can throw some curves at you when you aren’t quite ready for 'em sometimes.
I still think the late 70’s/early 80’s were the best years for Jeep. The CJs looked great!
Agreed, no YJ or newer compares
I have a Toyota RAV4 (4wd).
I’ve owned several Jeeps over the years. My first was a 1981 CJ-5. This crawler started out as a 1992 Cherokee.
Just got done putting a 3" suspension lift on the Commander. Adding larger tires this week which will raise it up another inch. Also have 1.5" wheel spacers.
This gives a maximum road speed of 110 km/h and a maximum range of 1,000 km.
that’s better than my truck - but of course they don’t mention the 50 gal. tank.
