92 Jeep wrangler 4 cylinder Vs. 6 cylinder

I have been looking at a couple of Jeep's around the late 1900's and was wondering if there is a big difference between the two. I am not planing on doing any heavy off roading. What is the difference in gas mileage, and is one more susceptible to braking down than the other?

A 92 will be a YJ and not a TJ. If you are looking into a YJ, you might want to ask over there. However, for offroad, there isn't much of a difference between the 4 and 6 if properly geared for the size tire you are running. I've seen plenty of nice trail-worthy i4s on the trails and the motor was never the weak link. For highway, there is a big difference in acceleration and top speed. I can't imagine the difference between mpg being much since a 4 will need to push the pedal down more to get up to and maintain speed.

Wheel. Break/Test. Repair/Upgrade. Repeat

i had a 94 4banger and trust me you do not want one i ended up selling it for a 6, and with the six i got better gas mileage. the 4 never let me down but it just never had enough power. both engines are known for being bullet proof and i never had any problems besides lack of power.

kinda depends on several factors. what are you going to use it for? can't speak for the 6, but the 4 does fine for me. i use it around town and for going to work(16 mi away) i don't depend on it as my only vehicle and if i need room, speed or confort i have 2 other vehicles to choose from. i'm far from being a kid anymore so accelration and top end aren't that important to me-just wanted something to get me from point a to point b and is fun to drive and is fairly good on gas(tons better than my PU) had it little over a yr now with min problems and got me through last winter and all the snow we had(had a 80 mi round trip to work then) alot better than most.
would i like a 6-probably, but wasn't really a concern at the time i bought it. being clean, no rust and from what i could tell, semi well maintained at a fair price was. as for resale, being 100% stock, don't see much problems there as that seems to be what alot of ppl want so they can mod it themselves the way they want it. checked out quite a few b4 i bought (stock and not so stock) and think i picked the best for the price.
