I can go anywhere in my 2.5L that my friend can in his 4.2L. If you want to drive on HWY get the 6cyl. If you want a good off road or around town Jeep get the 4 cyl.

I've only had my Jeep for a few months. But let me say a couple of weeks with me is worse than a few years with most people. I had it offroad day before yesterday and managed to get it good and stuck. I had to drop into 4wd low and rock it for a minute get out. Almost went off the side of a mtn. In my opinion the low gearing makes the 2.5 desireable offroad as long as your getting traction that is...

i have had both the 2.5 and 6cylinder, i did not notice a difference on the hwy but i did notice a difference towing my jet skis with the 6cyl. it had more torque and was easier to pull out of the launch area. the top speed was only about 75mph. i learend that if you draft behind another vehicle it really helps the hwy speed.

Great information, I'm also new to jeeps and the forum I'm looking at 2 jeeps- 4 cylinders, one is auto the other is 5 speed, both 95.
Any disadvantages of the auto over the 5 speed?
The auto has lower mileage and better condition compared of the 5 speed.
I'm planning of using it for the snow , daily driving and on occasion towing.
your help and input i appreciated.

Thanks

Rob

i have only had 1 jeep automatic, and i was scared to death of it after hearing that they were hard to find if it broke and the rebuild cost was usually the same price as a used jeep. my prefrence is the 5 spd, the ax5 has its issues but they are alot easier to find. hope this helps..
