FNG from El Campo, TX

Greetings and Salutations everyone I own a 2011 JKU Sport and I am sad to say I should've waited until 2012 for the newer more powerful engine. Why Jeep got rid of the 4.0 inline 6 is beyond me but this 3.8 piece of crap with 3:21 gears sucks. I have to shift into 5th if I'm going over regular freeway hills or if the wind is blowing against me. I'm running 33's on 17X9 wheels. Anyway since I'm stuck with it I was told to drop in 4:88's. Any other power suggestions would be helpful. I do want half doors for it (Texas summers and all), and after the gear swap I plann on running 35's with a 4 or 6" lift. It is a 6 append standard with a soft top. Thanks

Welcome to the Forum.
Well Mine has a Superchip & that made a bit of difference with an auto' also they say an after market air intake & regear to 410 or 513 is better. I have the 513 gears & to be honest didn't notice much difference with the re gear. The chip helped but still nothing spectacular with 35" tires & all the armor on it I think I am flogging a dead horse trying to get any better out of it, they are what they are
