Deep or street? Deep snow certain MT's are very good. When it comes to road snow they aren't as good as a AT but if they are siped, then they are fine. Plenty of people rolling around on for example KM2's that they had a tire shop sip or good MT's from the factory for snow like the Cooper STT and Mickey Thomson MTZ

3.8L V6

205hp/240lbs torque

Transmisions were a 4 speed auto and a 6 speed manual.

Rubicon comes with D44's front and rear with electronic selectable lockers that only work in 4L. Also comes with a 4:1 Low Range Transfer Case. Factory Mopar rock sliders. And the skids that came out of the factory for them I believe were transfercase, gas tank, and there is one more I believe but don't remember which one. The axles have a 4:10 gear ratio. The auto's on these are far far from being geared deep enough leaving them to be turds on power when going up in tire size. equiped with a manual trans they are much better. If it's a auto picking up a aev procal and changing the shift points makes more tollerable outside of regearing which isn't cheap.

Of note the auto transmisions on these aren't cooled well enough leading to fire via trans lines or something like that. adding a auxiallry trans cooler solves this. even if it's a stick I'd still get one unless one has been added by the previous owner already.


Seeing as the one you posted lacks the stock wheels and tires won't bother with those details.


Um any questions. If I missed anything I'll think of it eventually and post up or someone else will add to what I said

I should add those would be BFG KM2's on what looks like 17in Dick Cepek wheels.

The only problems that are notable is what I mentioned with the auto trans's overheating. This is leading to alot of the fires you hear about. as said before if it's a auto, just get a auxillary engine trans cooler and problem is solved. If there is another notable issue with that engine im not sure of it off the top of my head right now.

Im sorry I can't tell what lift that is. Since it's lifted 4in they should have replaced the front driveshaft with a aftermarket one. So check on that. It looks clean. How manny miles?

Its a six speed manual. Going to drive again this afternoon. Drives smooth but want to get it on the highway. To see if 5th and 6th have anything to them. Just trying to get as much info as i can. Love my lj. But wand to get on some better trails. And get alittle more serious about wheeling. Thankyou for the answers by the way.
