Haha. Thanx for making me make a mess on my table. Chicken doesn't come out your nose as easy as it goes down your throat.

Thats the difference between a YJ owner and a Doctor .
Although I guess you could be a YJ owning Doctor in which case you could just burry your mistakes .

REAL JEEPS HAVE LEAF SPRINGS

NO REALY ,, IT IS HIP TO BE SQUAIR

3.73's that's nothing I have 3.07 in my rear with 33" tires. With my 4.0 it didn't matter what way the wind was blowing you couldn't use 5th gear.

My bnlaw had a Comanche with the same gearing with 31's or 32's. I kept telling him to get a 3.55 gear set from the XJ. That gearing is what I was expecting to hear from Awesome.

YKYDAYJ when your Jeep only sees 5th gear in 4 low on a high speed 35 mph trail run, but never in 2wd on pavement.

Treat every situation like a dog. If you can't eat it or play with it pee on it and walk away.

That's odd. I have a Factory fuel injected 92 with a 4.0L Renix Head (not even the H.O. head) 5sp an 3.73's with 32's an I climb hills in 5th with no problem doing 60mph. Down shift to 4th an I am passing people.

I would have to say there is something definitely wrong with what you have going. Or I got very lucky. This is the second renix motor I have ran. Both have been strong runners which is why I have not felt the need to get a H.O. head yet as long as I keep the rest of the H.O. injection system.
I was in the same situation with my new-to-me YJ 4.0L two yesterday when trying to pass on two lane highways.

Keep in mind that 4.0's probably have a lot of miles on them by now. Mine has 182k miles, so it probably doesn't have the power it once did. Add to that the different configurations of YJ's that are even less aerodynamic than stock ones... and faster highway speeds in some states. On the 60 MPH two-lane I was on, I'd have to get my 3.73 (I believe) YJ with new 31" tires up over 80 to make a pass. If that happened it would take a tail wind, and I almost got myself killed trying it when the tailwind died.

I won't be trying to pass people in the future.

My 4.2 isn't bad at all when trying to pass people.. Just make sure you have runway.. Oh and I have 33x12.5x15
And 3.07 gearing... Talk about a dog

GO VOTE FOR THE JANUARY YJOTM TO KICK OFF THE NEW YEAR!! http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f12/j...-meow-2033809/

my 4.0 with 3.07 and auto trans never had any trouble passing. What I do is hang back a ways and time the opening, and floor it well before the oncoming car is out of the way. then you will have a nice run. mine also has under 100k miles on it too

My 4.0 was freshly rebuilt HO head. Plenty of power. Something weird about it. It just wouldn't do it. If I had to pass it was down to 3rd and floored.

If you find yourself in that situation again, just pop up to 4 hi. You'll wear out your transfer case running it like that.

I was able to do 70-90 and stay in the left lane on busy freeways when the Jeep was new to me. Back then it had just under 100k miles and bald BFG AT's. Now it's got about 182k (like yours) and doesn't have as much power as it once had. I used to pass people all the time, but I don't bother now.

I actually used to race up this one hill that I had to drive up every day after work. All the old people take it at 35mph (steep hill). I'd wait until the top, so I could see if it was safe, and then blow by them. Can't do THAT anymore.

Of course, I do carry about 250lbs of bumpers, winch, hi-lift and spare tire now that I didn't have back then. That probably adds to the problem.

100 Characters is not enough to have an interesting/relevant signature.
