which motor do y’all like the most? I’m leaning towards to 4-cylinder turbo. I plan on putting a 2.5 to 3.5 lift with 37” tires. Gas mileage means nothing to me as this is a toy.
I’m giving you a hard time; this topic has been discussed quite frequently on these here boards. Best advice I can give is test drive both and buy whichever one you like most. They’re both great motors.Beating a dead horse? Why is that? Should I go v6 ? I can change the gear ratio too.
This is a good and timely post. I just put 37s on today and my 3.6 with auto handles them fine. Pretty seamless really. If I didn't look down at what gear I'm in (auto) I would never notice a difference.I probably just haven't been paying attention, but has it been discussed that specifically; i.e., 37s and each engine choice?
Test driving both isn't really going to tell him anything about how the tire size will affect the way it drives.
Good luck OP. No idea which would be the better choice. Hopefully a more specific search will give you some answers.
As for my wife's JLUR...it's on true 37s, stock 4.10 gearing and auto trans. I honestly don't think we'll be regearing to 4.88s or 5.13s as the fuel economy has been pretty good and the power is fine on the street. The 4:1 in the tcase takes care of the 4L aspect....but if I was planning to use it a lot for climbing 3-4' boulders with 3 tires at once, I'd probably opt for the re-gear of the axles.
Can't speak to the turbo 4cyl. We're happy with ours in stock trim. YMMV.
