2.5 Preformance

Hey im new to the forum and i have a 2.5L 4 banger 95. with 31s and a 4 1/2" lift, iv been hesitant to take it off roading for a few reasons, i live in a suburb about 2 hours from chicago and i dont have anywhere to realy go to do it, and i dont know exactly what i can get myself into without a wench. so if someone could post what the 2.5 are able to do or what i might be able to do that would be great!

It's all in the driver. haha. I haven't went into anything too extreme with my jeep but I've went through some stuff with ease with a couple full size 4x4's following me and they couldn't go. And when I say stuff, I mean mud because there is not a lot of rock crawling to be done in my area.

you will have a blast man..dont worry about the 4 banger it has enough to push those 31's. i have really put mine through many runs on some bogger 33's and it does very well off road. i would suggest you buying a 10-20 dollar come along and a few tow ropes. my CA has paid for its self many times over.

I agree. Go for it. That it what it is for. It is not a race. My 4 banger has always been good off road.
