PostSubject: Jeep Question!!!    August 30th 2012, 9:46 pm

I am starting to look for a Jeep Wrangler! I know a little about the 4.0 I6 and they seem to be bullet proof.. My question is do any of you know anything about the 4cyl... I have found alot of them for sale but don't know if they hold up and will they turn over a set of 33's?

Well I have had 3 Wranglers two 6 cyl and one 4 cyl I would never ever buy another 4 cyl they are a dog if you have to pull any mountains or big hills with over sized tires.


Buy a 6 cylinder

All depends on the gears I had a new jk but I knew what I was going to do to it so I factory built it with 4.10 gears. And when it arrived I ripped the suspension out lifted it and put a set of 35s under it. Had the shift points changed (automatic). And it would pull hill with no problem. Even on the interstate it would pull 3 mile long hills at 80 mph

Get the six, and try to get the automatic trans if you are going to wheel it any. Also, the dana 35 rearend is absolute junk. If you are willing and can do an axle upgrade/regear, go for it. If you don't know how to work on diffs, spend the money for the rubicon with the dana 44s, 4.10 gears, lockers, and 4:1 low range already in it.

The 6 is King. I have a 67 that I did a frame off on and it has a 225 V6 that was stock to the Jeep at that time. I love the HP that it has. I only have 31x10.50 Pro Comps on it but I love it.

The 4.0 I6 is a beast that will run forever with proper maintenance. I have owned two and had no complaints with either.

The 4 cyl on the other hand is a gutless turd. It actually gets LESS gas mileage than the I6 because you have to run the damn thing pert much to the floor all the time to get it up above 60mph.

As stated, the 4 banger is a turd but depending on what you plan to do with it makes a difference. I had a 97 with the 4 and it was ok, gutless but workable. The biggest issue I see with it is that it has no lugging power like a 6, the I6 has great low end grunt and can just chug along. I agree with the rear axle, if it's a 35 they are junk. Look for one with a tow package or a special edition model. I have an 01 that is a 60th anniversary model, came with hard top, auto, dana 44 rear axle, cruise, tilt and ac. I've had several and would never buy another 4 cyl for what I intend to use them for. The only reason I ever bought the last one was because it was cheap and I could flip it. I did put a chevy 4.3 in one a few years ago, along with a sm465 granny first gear.
