A couple quick questions.

this might all be dumb and all bui need to know the answers to my direct questions ASAP. ok here we go:
1. My jeep is overheating, but only when the A/C is on and being ran for a while. Whats the problem
2. How do i know what springs are Upcountry and which ones arent?
3. Whats the best way to get a little bit more power out of my jeep? i just put 32s on it and its not struggleing but it could use a pick me up.
4. I went to get my jeep alignment and its pulling to the right. they said i need to get the tires counter balenced, would that cause them to pull to the right?

I really hope yall can help me. Thanks a bunch

Not sure on the other two, but you definately need gears for #3. And you have 31's (245/75/16 by your profile) not 32's

4.10's or 4.56's. If you're dead set on sticking with 32's forever and want a lower RPM at highway speeds, then get 4.10's. Otherwise 4.56's are the way to go.

On a different note.. if you are looking for a the UC package.. I have a set of UC springs and UC shocks for the WJ I am not using anymore that are forsale!!

To find out if you already have them or not, request a buildsheet from Jeep. Its fairly obvious though just by looking at a stock GC, the UC looks great compared to the regular springs.

1: start with a radiator flush and see if that helps
2: UC springs are longer and came with red shocks on the ZJ, not sure about the WJ
3: gears, tune up, super charger,
4: not sure what they are talking about, what did they say the problem was?

Something cheap to do for some added ponies would be to bore the throttle body, I just did mine this weekend and it actually makes a difference. It won't make your jeep pull wheelies, but it helps.
Also, you can modify the stock air box for better flow by cutting the tube inside the lower box. Also not a huge difference, but it helps.
Put an exhaust pipe from a V8 WJ, since it is bigger and flows better. Or just an after market cat back.
Move the IAT sensor to the filter box, computer thinks the incoming air is cooler.
If you got the coin to regear, this will make the biggest difference. I'd go 4.10 myself, but I drive on the freeways more than I'd like.

For your cooling problem, check to make sure the electric fan is turning on. Also make sure there is no mud/leaves between the rad and condensor.

Tire balance will not make your jeep pull one way or the other. You were not clear on if it was before or after your alignment, but if it's after, the tech probably compensated a little too much for road crown. Just take it back.

No clue about the UC springs.
