New to the jeep nation

Hello...just bought my first jeep. Wife wanted something to drive on the beach here in Corpus Christi Tx. I decided to buy a used one before we invested in a new vehicle we know nothing about. So I purchased a 1995 4cyl truck with 100k miles for $4900. Really looks good but boy is the power lacking. I drive a new Tundra with a 5.7 engine and it is like going back in time when I push the pedal in this jeep. It does not seem to be awake. I am going to get a tune up and have my mechnic check it out to see if I have engine troubles although I drove it home over a 100 miles with no problem except not being able to hold the speed limit in 5th. I had to keep it in 4th to get speeds around 65 -70mph.

Howdy! That is how a 4 cylinder is. Also don't buy anything that says it will improve your performance or anything that looks to good to be true.
