You might almost get a chirp out of the stock 225 tires in 4lo with a standard, by holding the engine at wot on the rev limiter and dumping the clutch. Burning them is not possible the Jeep is to light and will just take off out from under you. With a auto tranny you won't spin at all.

My truck won't do a 4lo burnout in a straight line and has three times the torque of the Jeep. I have owned and abused two XJ and a ZJ. I know for a fact that it can not be done on dry pavement. The only way we got any spinning at all was with dish detergent.

It is a nice dream but you will have to throw some money at that thing to get those results. The puff of smoke was probably the engine

I think they're talking about 4 wheel burnouts. Mine can def. roast my 33's in 2wd.

There was the episode where I threw my shoe at the enemy, like this!.... my foots cold.

Big 2500HD is too heavy. Burning rubber is about power versus weight on the tires. The less weight, the easier to roast the tires. Less friction and such.

Also, I would think 4lo would not have enough gear to do a proper burnout. The second you dropped the clutch, you would be tach'd out in 1st gear.

yeah i think a standard wouldnt work too well. unless you could shift gears real fast! my tach topped out before the auto could even switch gears ...do XJ's not have rev limiters? cuz mine went way over redline

baby jesus is crying his eyes out as he sees this thread before him

Though I wheel through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil: For thou lockers are with me;
Thy lift and thy tires, they comfort me.
Thou preparest a spotter before me in the presence of mine obstacles;

Truck = 7600 lbs weighed

XJ = 3600lbs Guess on my part

Approx. 3 times the torque and only twice the weight. That is what I based my argument on. I have tested the XJ 4.0L and not had any success with spinning the tires in a straight line on dry pavement. All I did was much like what Chris said and turn everything that was loose in the Jeep into a projectile flying backwards.
