sorry your Jeep is so fat it's a compromise you must deal with when your rig is the heaviest....the others can't pull you out. If he bogged even snatching, combined with your weight, you were that stuck, his 4 cylinder had nothing to do with it.

I was wheeling on Eagle Rock, here in Colorado Springs, and I saw a guy who's fan came loose and shredded his radiator. Only way to get him home was to tow him. Well my little 4 banger towed his v8 350 chevy hearted monster up and down the hills to get him to Cheyenne Mountain to get a wrecker. The 4 banger can get it done..

Last winter during elk season I pulled 5 different trucks out of the ditch with my 4 banger. A toyota 4runner, a Chevy s-10 blazer, a 70's style chevy, a ford f-150 and a jacked up ford f250 with a powerstroke. I just hooked a tow rope to the bumper and yanked. Nobody knows how to drive in the snow up there. I was having a blast.

If you know how to drive a 4 banger it's not that bad. It scoots around pretty good if you keep the rpms on the higher side. You just need to find your rpm g-spot. I even pull a boat around with mine every weekend. Yea I don't go 100 mph but it's a jeep,you don't need to, if you need to go that fast, get a car.

Half of what we(in reference to my '5) got, just with less balls.
Having the power doesnt really do anything for me though, it gets kind of scary over 55mph.

I bought my 4cyl 97 TJ version new in 96, mainly because of the suspension ratings. So far it has served me well. I swear a couple of years ago I got 25 mpg on the 2 lane @ 55 mph checking twice. I can cruise in 5th at 75 mph (where flat) with no problems. As the time to rebuild draws closer, I've been looking into other 4 banger replacements, like the Ecotec. I know some 4 cylinders can really run, like the old Offenhausers. Like I keep telling my wife, it's not the SIZE of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog.
