33s with 4.11 and a 4 cyl

Ok so Im about to remove the 31s from my 1997 2.5l 4cyl with 4.11 gearing and put on 33s. Will i be able to hold 70mph? How bad will my gas mileage be? Just give it to me straight fellas.... i know itll be bad. And please dont bash on my 4 banger, it's all i got, and HEY, its all i need.

Hold 70 MPH? maybe in third gear. Gas mileage will suffer.

Is your Jeep a 2.5l?

Not my current Jeeps, but my old 2000 TJ had the 2.5 and it could barely get out of its own way.

If it helps.
I've got a 04 2.4 on 33's.
I got 4.56's and still have to rock 4th to get 70 mph.
But I do get 17-20 mpg.

I can hold 70-75 in fifth as long as winds are calm and I'm not climbing any hills on the interstate.
