My 2.5, considering what some people say, seems to be way stronger than it should with 175000 miles on it. I can climb hills in 4th with 1500rpm at 30mph. I just feel like that is pretty good even of it only has 31 inch tires

In 4 lo, they are beasts. While I think we can all agree and on a long freeway/highway hill, they are doggy (no passing power)...they do just fine otherwise, and not as bad as many 4.0L guys make them out to be.

Even on long trips its not bad at all. I just shift down and pass just fine. But big hills still slow me down a little
