I like to back roads, play some music and enjoy life. Hate the highway, does not matter what vehicle I am driving.
Exactly !!!! But I find it more fun in a Jeep .... I have only had mine for little over a month, but I find myself taking the long route home after work just to ride in it a little longer. Specially with the top down. Only thing close to it is was riding my motorcycle.
1999 TJ 4 Banger here. Original owner. I have had my share of love/hate relationships with the 2.5L over the years. While I never doubted the reliability of the 2.5L, my ego flared and waned over the additional power of the 4.0L.
But i am 42 now and have mellowed out some and have a newfound love for my Jeep now that it has become my daily driver (other car died).
I drive and hour one way to work taking the country back roads and am really enjoying the drive.
Looking forward to my KC HiLights I'm installing soon for more backroads visibility.
My 97 TJ has a 2.5l not sure the mileage because it was swapped. but even with 35's on it I got it to squak the tires. Even if it was on accident. Just need to learn how to drive your car. I had a stock turbod eclipse and would whoop people in their v8 mustangs, and camaros all day. Why because I knew how to drive my car.
Ive had mine for about a year with just over 155000 miles. It still runs good does not burn any oil. It goes over 65 on the interstate no problem. I would probably not like the 2.5 if I lived in a area with a lot of hills. I currently have 30" BFG on now but have a set of 31" BFG in the gargage waiting to be installed along with a 2" BB. I hope I dont loose to much power.

Well, it's been over a year that I started this post. I've taken my Jeep on several cross country trips and I Love driving it. Just a little slow getting on the interstate but other than that, no problem. Also getting around 20-21 MPG
