Gear question

Ive got a 97 tj 4 banger with 2.5 lift n 33s, jw if they r just extremly slow or should i be running diff gears, im assuming its stock gears n it right now and its just stupid slow, i no its a 4 banger n cant expect much but it seems like its way slower then most.

Well once the tire size changes, you need lower gears to be back to stock. A 4cyl will never be fast, but an undergeared 4cyl will be a turd.

4cyl's come stock with 4.11's front an rear. You can always go lower, but you lose highway rpm and mileage on it. I've been in peppy 4 bangers even without the big gear and motor. Intake, throttle, injectors, weight, everything can be factors in sluggish turnouts.
