Wouldnt that be bad for mileage accelerating fast?
What is pulse and glide?
Kudos to wheeling your rig. Most KJs I've seen stop at the beginning of a dirt road. Cept the LOST guys, they're all crazy

Haven't run the 3.7 personally, but for my 4.0 what works the best is flooring it up to cruising speed, then dropping it into neutral and coasting. Airing up from 25 to 40 helped in that regard. Gas mileage sucks when accelerating, but its better to have crappy FE for a short period of time vs a long period. On the highway any neutral drop is a lost cause, but your KJ might actually coast a bit. Constant throttle also helps. Doesn't take more than quarter throttle to keep me at 60-65

Are the Revos mounted on the steelies or you running the stock alloys? Might want to consider picking up some alloys for highway running instead of the steelies if you aren't.

Pulse and glide is speeding up to say 45, coasting down to say 30 then speeding back up again.

I'm one of those crazy lost guys...If you look at my car domain pics. I was wheeling with the paper tag still in the window....lol I run 15" series 51s offroad and on road I run the stock 16" steelies, I have been trying the coasting thing but on the highway...but it feels like i just dropped an ancor, now in town it will coast like there is no tomorrow.... kinda weird don't really know how that works unless it is just the drag in the aerodynamics seems that the constant throttle is best option for me as well.
