Hey everyone! I just picked up my first Jeep. 94' I6 5 speed. I love it. Going to get it inspected tomorrow. One question I have is, I was driving it back to my house on it's maiden voyage and it seemed like it didn't like going up hills. I got the 4.0 for the added power and torque. On a straight without getting too crazy I got her up to 80. It seemed any real big steep hills I had it floored and couldn't hold 75. Is this normal?? I only ask because I have an s10 with relatively the same specs on motor 190hp 220 torque - 4.3 vortec, but don't feel that way when I drive it. Thanks all.
any oversized tires or anything, may need a tune up, maybe signs of a cat going bad.
"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president." http://mybroadband.co.za/photos/data...re_cowbell.gif
No oversized tires, stock I believe. It has 120,000 on it. I'm going to change the oil and get new spark plugs. The exhaust looks fairly new as it does not share the same color as the gas tank. It could have recently put on. I keep her below 80. I guess I have to get used to the Jeep thing haha.
yeah i would say that is pretty normal, you will learn real fast the 75 is moving for a Jeep, mine wouldnt get above about 70 before i did my 304 swap, i wanted to try it after my swap and i hit about 93 before i chickened out and slowed down but for the I6 that is normal
Here are the morning pics. Need to pick up a spare today. Hopefully Crazy Rays has a few. And no high stop light I'm not sure what the previous lady did with them. You can see the knobs in the first pic.
looks stock if ur looking for things to have checked the frame. and i can't stress that enough check it all biggest problem spots fount drivers side were the steering box attaches and on the rear were the leafs bolt on to the frame. but it looks great though
some say why i say
its a jeep thing u wouldn't understand
Yeah I think you have a little lift.. Looks like the back of the jeep is higher than the front, maybe since your slanted on a hill but 31s aren't stock and those 31s clear those wheel wells very good.. maybe 2" or 3"? not sure about yjs
Do these mean lift? I measured them from bolt to bolt and it's 4in. Also, I went to the junkyard today and got the spare mount. I wasn't able to get the high stop light. Then, didn't realize if the it is mounted on the spare mount. Does anyone know? The dealer ship sells them separate and for a ton. It was 15 for me and the are charging over $120.
