lets see...what would be the difference between inline and straight...other good questions: whats the meaning of life? why does the sun rise? why do we park on drive ways and drive on parkways? how does the positrac rear end on a plymouth work? it just does.. Copyrights Joe Dirt, and I am Sam 19...whatever

For offroading, the four-banger engine is fine... older Wranglers use the 2.5L, newer use a 2.4L. But on the highway, the four-banger is not a pleasure to drive with, it is underpowered for much of that kind of us. So if you have to drive at 65-70 mph much, you'd be much happier with the 4.0L I6 engine.
