You know, I have the 4.2 with K&N intake and a MPI kit, and with 31"s and 2.72 gears I can barely tell the difference between a sack of potatoes in the back or our popup camper (something like 3200 pounds loaded). The MPI kit gives the Jeep soo much nut... its unbelievable the before/after comparison.

Trust me, your making a good choice with the Jeep. Back in the day my Jeep did better off-roading stock than a lot of people with 3" lifts in trucks.

My advice is the usual, ask lots of questions, and when you take it for a test drive, drive it in good spots, test its engine power IE drive up the side of a mountain and see how well you can accelerate. Test 4wd at all speeds (mine rumbles at 55 for some reason) any noises are bad. besides stereo and engine. heh.

Out of all the Jeeps my family and I have owned the ones that were most rreliable were the 2.5's. I have seen one with well over 300k. I would consider a 4.0 if I did extreme hwy trips, if I tow a lot, or if you plan to go larger tires and regear it. The four cylinders are well capable of pulling a trailer of the max. weight that is safe to pull behind a Jeep(no more than 3500). Afour cylinder with stock gears will handle larger tires better than a 6 cyl with stock gears.
