Re: i ordered my lift and wheels!!

if you have 4.11 gears from factory you have the 4 cylinder

or if you have 6 cyl, then you dont have 4.10s unless someone else put them there, 3.73 was the highest they put behind the 6, except the rubicon which had 4.10

anything else and you are confused


anywho....lets say you have the 6 cyl and you find you dont have enough power to go, you then have to re-gear to get that power back power mods alone usually only help marginally, or so i have found.....except superchargers, but those are hella expensive

Stock gears with the 4.0 were the 3.07, and you could get 3.73 as an option. You probably have 3.07 and with 33's they'll suck. With 3.73 its marginal, at best.

Re: i ordered my lift and wheels!!

I am still trying to figure out what spacer lift you are getting that lifts 3 inches,, While a 2 inch spacer lift will fit 33 inch tires, wheeling on them is another thing. Tater,,, you have a similar set up,, are you following this??

Re: i ordered my lift and wheels!!

There is no free lunch. Save your pennies, and not look for a "quick fix". It will be drivable (and pass-able) but you bought those items for looks, not performance.

You want it all? Open the checkbook, large.

Open element filter will help slightly,, chips on jeep engines are not worth the money. If I had all the dough I spent trying to squeeze hp outa an underpowered (on the interstate) jeep engine I could have regeared years ago..
