Larger as in larger than a 4 Cyl. Jeep; bigger engine, big tires, maybe a moderate lift. Not as in larger than that monster truck BoogieMan posted. Not sure why you're laughing though. I said the 4 Cyl will "go" and keep up in the same places in the mud if you know what you're doing, not that the 4 Cyl will outperform a V6 or V8. That being said, most trucks like what BoogieMan posted never see mud around here and always have a pretty paint job in the parking lot (even if they're not street legal) so they never really crossed my mind as a factor and with the OP being 16 I doubt people he wheels with have trucks that require that much time and investment.

It will keep up with alot of money invested. I have had 4 cyl lifted Jeeps and even regeared to 4.56 with 33 inch no traction tires they bog down in 4LO 1st gear in the real nasty mud where I had to ride the clutch to keep from stalling (which is a bad idea).... Unless you do an axle swap and can gear into the 5.XX range I have a hard time believing you doing anything worth bragging about.

Where were you wheeling that you bogged down in 4low and in 1st gear on 33's with 4.56 gears?

I just so happen to live in Virginia! Point me in the right direction! I'm always looking for more challenging obstacles that I don't have to drive so far away to play on. Tomorrow myself and a group of friends are going to go play in some nice sticky VA swamp mud on a friends land.. it's pretty knarly mud, and has already claimed a U-joint on a D30 front end running 35's...

A friend of mine runs a 4 cyl with 35" tires, regeared, 44's front n rear, and he goes everywhere any other Jeep goes. When it came time for a new motor he went ahead and rebuilt the 4cyl. He uses lots of rev's to get it where he wants it to go.

85 CJ7, Howell TBI, Twin Stick, 4:10's, 35" Pitbull Rockers, Clifford 6=8, Detroits, Matkins Level II, BDS 4", Summers Brothers. Skynyrd rocks.
06 Rubicon
06 Lance Camper
02 Dodge Cummins
