Just Wondering

Can a 6 cyl manual get the front wheels off the ground on asphalt, maybe with the aid of a speed bump or something, or pumping the throttle in first?
It feels like it could

No offense indo, but, why would you want to? Jeep 6cyl is known for durability....not it's drag racing ability.
Or maybe you're just giving the motor "props" and I misunderstood you.

I will video this one day but from a dead stop and turning left, I can lift the drivers front wheel off the ground (how far is yet to be determined) but with the torque and gearing I have the Jeep leans hard to the right and turning left only increases it to the point the wheel has come off the ground. As for both at the same time, well, I'd hate to think of what kind of stress you'd end up putting on everything else to lift the front of the Jeep - including motor. Certainly *not* something you'd want to try with a stock Dana 35.

Depending on your gearing/axle put it in 4LO and step on it. Should do it

Quick people, run down to your broker and buy stock in u-joint manufacturers.

All of the above
I am new to owning a jeep, my last car had 500 rwhp and with slicks on, it could get 1 wheel off the ground.
I am still getting used to the clutch in my jeep, and got the thing bucking to the point where I thought it was going to do a wheelie

Awesome!!

It's an 05 rubicon. I have "side-stepped" the clutch in 2nd and got the wheels to chirp (also probably not a good idea). Lol

I miss my car

But I do love my Jeep

I wonder if Carrol Shelby ever thought about climbing a sand dune in one of his Cobras?

Not a 6 cylinder, but fun to watch anyway.
