I know the short answer is "Get the 3.73" but let me ask anyway...
I'm getting a Jeep for my daughter to head off to college. Yeah I know.
The dealer was steering us toward the 4 door unlimited. We test drove a Sahara unlimited and a Sport 2 door. The Sport had noticeably better acceleration and perkier response. But I did not check the gear ratios. Do you think this was related to the weight difference, the gear ratio, or ?
We're going to stick with the Sahara 2 door, auto trans. My daughter will drive this around town. Unless, god forbid, some boyfriend mucks with it, she will use stock tires forever. Her only offroad will be when she runs over the curb by accident. I guess I'd say fuel efficiency is an issue, but thats kind of stupid because this is the wrong car for that anyway.
Is 3.73 still the best bet to get a perky ride? Better resale? Or is this the reason 3.21 exists?
Thanks a million.
