Re: new 2.5l or 350ci V8?

65 mph is the top speed for my tj on 32's and stock 4.10 gears. I don't mind it, but I am not in a hurry. Offroad the only time I miss a bigger motor is when I need wheelspin... and even then I hav found ways to make what I have work...

4.88 is a likely addition to my rig, but I really don't need it offroad.

Aaron (Crazy Eddie) has 5.3something in his and has good power on interstate. Although his tranny lost 5th gear while back. I would say he will chime in...

That 2.5 is not a bad engine. It may not be what everyone wants, but it is reliable and tough..
