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.
