If you are going to pull a trailer I wold look for a I6. Even with regearing the 4 pulling a trailer would be hard on that motor . It will do just hard on it

Hauling with a 4 cyl would be rough. The 4 cyl jeeps are strange. Mine has plenty of power and I go 70+ on the interstate, another guy at work has a newer / less milage 4 cyl and he has to down shift all the time and has a hard time even keeping his 4 cyl above 60 mph.

I do some minor hauling, I have a john boat with a 15 HP on the back and my 4 banger pulls that just fine. I also have a small trailer that I load wood / deer / random junk but never more than a few hundred pounds. Anything more than minor hauling and you will need the 6 cyl and some of the 4 cyl I have been in couldnt haul anything.

Turns out the Green Sahara is already sold. The Blue 06 had little odds and ends things that needed some work and the deal breaker was that it was previously in an accident.

This is an ad that didn't have a picture with it. But I had them text me a picture. Needless to say the quality of the picture was severally lacking. But from what I could see it looked okay. I can try and load the picture later this evening. I asked them if they had taken it offroad and they said it never has been.

Is there anything that I need to look for with the lift? What kind of changes need to be made when bigger tires and a lift are added? If these changes are not made what consequences are there? Is there a way for me to check for it?
