New Owner from Staten Island

Hi FJ Folks
Picked up my 2013 TT on Friday..Love it. But I am getting the feeling the gas mileage is not in the posted 17/20 range. I wonder if there are any local groups near Staten Island?
I plan mods latter in the spring when I pay for some of the current debt I got into.. My current plans are ARB front bumber with,fog lights, additonal lighting and winch and , ARB back bumber with towing package. ARB snorkel. I assume my gas mileage will go down even more with these but I will live with it. I thought also a set of 4 lights on a light bar on the roof rack would be functional and cool but might be increase noise on the road. Any suggestions about my plans would be greatly appreciated.
Happy New Year to all.

More mods=Less MPG

Hoping we can get our 10% ARB and Snorkel discount code activated again. PM if interested and I will see what I can do.

Welcome to the gang.... You will find a bunch of great people here to help you with mods. I had a '10 FJ and got well below the manufacturers mileage rating as well. Get a Scangauge and plug and play.

Welcome!

Go ahead, skin it! Skin that smoke wagon and see what happens...

I'll ride in on a sunny day, Sing you a song, steal your heart away Like a cowboy Hang my hat like I'm here for awhile Kick off my boots and drive you wild Like a cowboy Well baby you know I can't stay long You wake up, I'll be gone Until then I'll hold on Like a cowboy.

I now see the same with re gearing... I guess if I wanted efficiency I wouldn't have bought such a sexy box

OP just remember the FJ is Smiles per gallon
