Just bought a 2000, need some tips.

Hey everyone new guy here. Just bought my first wrangler a few days ago after driving a 92 mustang for 3 years. Can only be wishing i had bought one sooner as im very satisfied with its stock capability offroad (used to take my mustang offroad lol, dont ask.) Anyways, I have a few newb questions.

1. The jeep seems to whine a little in first gear while taking off and slowing down but only does it in first. Do you guys think this is ok? Its under a warrenty so im not too concerned.

2. It doesnt seem like the tack is correct at all. Should i be cruising ar 40mph at onlt like 1500 rpm? maybe im just not used to the tourq of the 4.0 ( mustang was a modified 2.3)

3. -Lighting- Im looking to install a lightbar overhead but i cant seem to find one thats not breakign the bank. Any suggestions on a cheap lightbar? Im installing 2 hellla lights slightly in from the headlights and custom fabing 2 smaller fogs into the bumper like the JK's have.


thanks guys

1. I'm guessing you have a manual, so yes, a slight whine in first is normal IMO
2. The RPM on your TACH at any speed is directly related to what gearing you have. The lower the gearing the higher the RPM. Without knowing your diff. ratio it's hard to tell.

x2 if you have 3.07 gears then no, check your diff tag located to the left of the diff..

What part does the "no" refer to?
