Nope.

Not with that kind of lift on those size tires with a 2.5. Unless you are going to tear it down to basics and start all over its not worth much of anything.

you may think the 4cyl does good with little crawling around in the mountains but those 37s are putting so much stress on that engine to just turn those tires and don't eve get me started on how much stress that lift is putting on everything. I never understood why people would build up the four cylinders. you're done before you've started with the engine alone.

It's a ok deal all and all. There are issues with the current setup. With 37's it had to be regeared or it wouldn't even get up to 40. Might be different axles then the stock or you would blow the D35 apart. Anticanman is not just busting your chops on the steering. That could dangerous. The 37's are too big fro casual driving. 33's would be more then big enough for what you are saying you are going to use it for. The 2.5L is a good motor for trail and freeway driving. If you were rock crawling or mudding it is a different story. Too bad the girl wasn't included! Post up to the YJ tech forum and you will get more responses on dealing with your new toy. Welcome to the square headlight crowd!

I appreciate the kind word unlike others. I understand it has a small engine compared to the upgrades, but it's going to be my 10 mile a day driver...I don't expect it to be a beast. Yeah eventually I'll invest in a 4.0 or maybe even a 360. Whichevers cheaper and easier to get. But right now it's my dd and toy to go drive through the forest with so the issues besides the steering are no big deal to me. And an engine with 5k on it? I don't care if it's a 1liter that's a good deal. I'll post pictures when I get a chance to.

Thanks again to most for the words of wisdom
