4.7 stroker ?

Hi,new to the forum .just got an 05 rubicon 33" tires 5" lift .
was wondering if anybody has installed a stroker to their 4.0 tj.
even with the standard transmission its a little sluggish.
dont get me wrong im not looking to make it a muscle car.
just needs a little more go.

In my case, not sure yet. We got screwed over by a former club member so worth it is subjective to us.
UnlimitedRubicon over on JS did a 4.6 in his 2005. Might ask him about drivability and if it was worth it.

I have and really like it, even with the stock cam and lifters. Driveability issues, sure, you'll want to drive it more.

I think its a good idea its the safest way to get big gains without trying to experiment and ruin something good. I would be careful in your selection of strokers like anything else you pay for what you get. Don't just run down to a local shop without really getting a feel for whats going on and how they are going to do it. You don't want Jim bob the son of god doing it. Many times most local shops do everything in such masses that you don't get the best product and you might not get what you really need. I would make sure whatever you do that you check to see the person or persons doing it blue prints it and sonic test your block that you have or the one they would build for you in exchange for your old block. I plan to stroke mine when it goes but, lord only knows when that will be. If its anything like my 98 with 250k and still running I might be 50 years old before my 05 engine starts to show its age. I will say to check out Golen strokers they test everything before it leaves and you can a warranty with your engine. Email or talk to Chad Golen the owner super nice guy and can help point you in the right direction too.
