4. Cylinder 4 wheel drive

I know a 4 cylinder won't get me from point A to point B quickly but will get the job done. I've never owned a 4x4 before, in the 4 Cylinder will the 4x4 work well in snow, etc. I won't need acceleration just power to get through things, it will be a second car that I use for fun and in bad weather.

Just looking for advice.

Sure it will. I never had a problem getting though anything in my 4 cylinder. It won't ever feel like a sports car, (Very few Jeeps do regardless of engine), but the 4 cyl has enough torque to get you moving. The major complaint about the 4 cyl is maintaining highway speeds.

4 Cylinder? No Problem.

I have had two Jeeps, on TJ several years ago and currently a YJ. Never had a problem...(OK, few YJ problems) with the 4 cylinder. If you are not in to jacking them up or running humongous tires to impress the kiddies, then they will do fine. I traveled all over the south in the TJ, mostly on Interstates running legal speeds (65-70) and never had any problems maintaining speed. I was running it factory stock though.
