I just picked up an 89 YJ with a 4.2 and 33" on it. It is a good running vehicle but with the standard 3.07:1 gear ratio, it does not have the best performance. Top speed is about 63 mph, but if you are just using it for off road type of driving then it would be fine. But based on that, I don't think the 2.5 would be enough engine for the 33's and the gear ratio. While it looks good and clean, unless you wanted to put in a bigger engine, I would pass.

I got the CJ. I'll post pictures this weekend. Over all it is in really good shape. Won't idle until the engines warm and the fuel gauge doesn't work. Other wsie its in amazing shape.

Chill out people. Seriously is it that bug of a deal? I may have missed the point of the new jeep, but if you noticed it was more of a discussion of engine size, gear ratio, and tire size. But I guess you are all experts and know everything. Happy posting!

Refering back to the 1st page of post on the the 258 and 2.5. The 258 has more torque at a lower rpm than does the 4.0. The 2.5 isn't in the same ball park as the 258. On my 258 I installed a holley 470 TA 4 barrel, offy intake, comp cam, P&P the head, rollor rockers, header, 10-5-1 pistons, DUI distributor, and MSD. I got 222 hp at 4,800 rpm's. This was concidered a mild build by my engine builder. He said the 258 is capable of producing a lot more, for a lot more money of course. The point being, the 258 is a diamond in the rough and is a great platform for a high performance engine build as is the 4.0. The 258 is very versitle, you can go old school with a carb, or TB FI or MPFI, swap on a 4.0 head and so on. Don't never sell the 258 short on it's possabilities. Even in stock form it achieves peak torque at 1,800 rpms, thats like a diesel. I've had both, 258's and 4.0's and found it to be easier to build a 258 as there is no computer to have to retune as you build for performane. With even a few bolt on parts and the 258 starts comming alive and it's lowend torque is awesome for off roading.
