Depending on your tire size you might be looking at having to re gear. Mine had 35x14.50 boggers and had no power, acted sluggish until it got up to speed. I have a 258 and t176 trans. I have since began a rebuild and am going to ditch the boggers and go down to 33x12.50 with
4.10 gear set.
Nice looking jeep good luck with it.

My friend came over and we adjusted my clutch and idle and its running great now, has enough power to bark the tires.
