I have no problems I do 80 on the highway regularly and I do mild to a little above mild trails and I do alot of hill climbing. I have never been in a situation where I have needed more power. Getting up to speed takes a little longer but not like alot of these guys say on here. If your staying under 33's you should have as much pick up as say a ford escort. Just do not be afraid to eithier use lo range off road or keep your RPM's at 2500 or 3000 eithier of the two will give you all the power you need for what you want to do. This is my second 4 banger I like them

Yeah, sorta amusing. Way I see it, there isn't any bad engines - they're made for different purposes, so what works for one guy might not work for another guy. Somebody tries to run an engine outside of what it was designed for then they're gonna break stuff and just look stupid. Course I still got a soft spot for Chevy V-8's but I'm biased.

That's the way to go. It took me 6 yrs to get mine, and I couldn't be happier. I'm in the same situation as you - every place I need to go is close by. Say 50 miles or less. I can do the freeway if I have to. But I prefer the more scenic state roads and back roads.

I will probably get flamed for this, or there will be someone who post up that they got XXXX kibillion miles on their 2.5L, but generally speaking the 4 bangers start to get worn and tired at approximately 125K to 150k.... there will be stories of people who got XXXX miles out of a 2.5L, but these are the exceptions, not the general rule. A well cared for 4.0L will do 300k without much trouble.

LOL What is it in this thread that is bringing in all the guys from the other forums.....Cant you guys just go home and play in your own sand box! LOL All kidding aside.

I dont know about 125 or 150,000. That seems a little low. The 2.5L will do a couple hundred thousand without breaking a sweat. They are the same blocks with a couple holes missing on the 4 popper. If your point is that if you have the 2 engines and you ask them to do the exact same job the wear is definitely going to be greater on the 2.5L. I think gearing is the key factor on that though wouldn't it?

You first joined this discussion on post #17, I came in back on post 48... so I didn't just pop in... No0 one talked about the shorter life of the 2.5L and I just wanted the OP to be aware of this..... as long as he pays for a 2.5L, not a 2.5L at a 4.0L price, then he will have made an informed decision with as many of the facts as possible on the table, even if a few feathers get ruffled along the way

Like I said before, different engines for different jobs. It's kinda obvious that a 2.5 won't do 4.0 jobs real good. DUH!
But the OP does not seem interested in doing 4.0 jobs. You are right about not paying too much.

I have both a 91 4L and a 95 2.5L. Is there a difference, sure. It's your choice, I think they are both good. I picked up the 2.5L for a steal, and it's my wife's DD, so fine for her purpose.

It's all about the OP having the information needed to make an informed decision about what is best for him.

True. My 4L is used on mainly on the farm, hauling trailers with wood up and down, hunting season, snow plowing etc. Hard work, but never missed a beat. Would the 2.5L be able to do that? I doubt it very much. On the other hand, as a DD, the 2.5L is perfect. Sure, you have to switch between 4 and 5th gear now and then, but other then that, no complaints.
