I put one on my 2.4 4cyl. It may improve a little and how you drive it. I took out the 4cyl. air box and put in a 6cyl. air box.

the biggest improvemant is climbing hills. paved ones, it pulls alot stronger.

I have 35's and 4.11's and drive in 4th at 2500 rpm and about 60 mph. I get the best gas milage in that gear about 20mpg. If I drive in 5th it's to floor and poor gas milage

I to say the least love tires.. Lots of reading and tire research over the past few years on AT and MT tires.. How do you like them? I don't know anyone who uses them on a DD/WW so I am intrigued to maybe get a quick first hand review from you on them

I love em. Little exspensive. But I've gone through creeks and mud holes and haven't had to use 4wd yet. Tires do all the work for me. People always know I'm pulling up to a stop light. Also makes mud fly. Love em love em love em. I'll post a picture up when I get home from work. Around 5.
