    Heh, yeah...my Trooper has gotten 20 mpg on rare occasion, but never higher than that. And a Montero is very similar to a Trooper.

    Interesting, first I have heard of them. They talk big: And yeah they aren't cheap, but they are "handmade in the USA", too. And this is interesting:

    Around here you'd be jumping out of your truck every 20 feet to reset your antenna. Not such a problem in AZ I suppose. I have a 1/2 wave on my bullbar, hasn't taken many hits there.
