2.4

I am looking at getting a new 06 wrangler with the 2.4. I was just wondering if anyone has had any major problems with the 2.4?

might be a little under powered but i can't think of any big issues with the 4 banger...lots of people like it although it is a little rough when you put bigger tires on

Do you plan on doing any lifting, tires etc?
If so, then changing the gearing can help you keep some of that usable power.

The old 2.5's were amazing, bulletproof little motors. They were guttless wonders, but you never had to worry them. I had one in a 93 YJ, manual trans, no a/c, with a 3" body lift and 31x10.50 AT's. I could forget about cruising over about 65 mph. Max speed was 70 mph, downhill, with a tailwind.

I'm sure the newer ones have a little more power, and can handle interstate speeds depending on how you have it set up.

I have some other projects so the jeep would stay close to stock, but it would definately see plenty of off road abuse.

Then, go for it. Just throw some decent AT's on it.

Dont the 4 cyl.'s come with 4.10 gears? I know my 93 2.5 and a friends 97 2.5 had em.

the 06 comes with 3.73 dana 35. But a locker and some 4.56 would be cool.

Increased Power Possibility

I've had two 2.5L Jeeps ('01 TJ and '00 XJ still have the '00) and have loved them. It is amazing what those little engines can do. On both I added an aftermarket air tube and filter assembly to replace the air filter "box." I've put one on my 4.0L '04 Unlimted as well. In each case I've had more power and better fuel economy. For offroading it was a noticeable help, especially in the Appalachian Mountain region of western Maryland where I live. My best purchase was from Rusty's Offroad in Alabama. They have a great web site and they are the least expensive aftermarket option available. I used Turbo City's Rocket Air on the other two but I like the kit I got from Rusty's the best. Hope that helps you with a simple possibility.
