20's? As in 20' tow straps? 20' hi-lift handle?

If you want power out of your WJ you really picked the wrong engine. The 4.0 is good at doing what it already does and not much more. To get a noticable power gain out of it you'll need to stroke it. Google for 4.6 or 4.7L stroker kits for it.

The weight of your wheels do affect your shocks, but VERY minorly compared to weight on top of the axle. I wouldn't get new shocks based on that. MX-6 are nice (adjustable), so are Bilstein shocks.

If you're looking at getting speed/performance/handeling out of your Jeep I suggest heading over to the Speed Freaks section at

20" wheels? Good lord. Seriously, you'll see a bigger performance jump by losing the crap pimp jewelry than you will with any mods to the 4.0 short of stroking it. The 4.0 is a basic truck engine, nothing more.

You might try , they dont list grands. But some of the parts will work they say.
Try they have some pavement pounders over there. Some v-8s with big numbers in HP. this is a link to kolaks email and some nice things said about him. He can hook you up with some engine mods.
