To those of you who have 4.0l's, 33's, and 4.56 gears, what kind of mileage do you get under normal driving conditions? City mileage, but mostly highway? Any input would be great.
Thanks guys

I average around 18.5mpg mixed driving. I drive like a grandma though, probably piss a lot of people off lol. I'd go 4.56. down the road you'll most likely get bigger tires, then with would definitely be undergeared with the 4.10's.

Check out the TRS fab and offroad section, they're in there.

I've got 4.56's with a 4.0L auto trans running 36" TSL SX's and I get about 14-15mpg in town, probably around 17 on the highway.

If you think you'll want bigger tires down the road go 4.56's.

If you think you'll be happy with 33's, stick with the 4.10's.

I'm running 32's with 3.73's and it's not bad at all, but if I went up to a 33 I'd want 4.10's.
