MrHix That sounds great, would love to add lockers, but im super involved in gunsmithing right now and dont have the extra cash for lockers. I know i'll regret it when the time comes but I dont wheel that hard to warranty the purchase. Yet.....

TexasT Howdy neighbor...don't forget the master install kits for your budget. You'll need one for each axle. Also that would be a great time to add front and rear lockers, super 35 upgrade....so many options...so little time. I'm up in Kerrville btw.

You will be gaining bottom end. The stock 4:10 (2.5L/5speed) gear ratio was setup for the stock P205/75R15 tires (27"?)....so now that you have 33's, you are geared really tall. Going to 4:56 or 4:88 gears will lower your gearing getting that bottom end back.

Dextreme I'd get some 4.88 gears for it. You likely have 4:10's now.

XJ Knight 4.88's... It's all you can do

Lando25 Id say that gearing is the first thing I would figure out. You can spend a lot of money on things that will only get you a couple hp. The real solution is proper gearing that will put you back in your power band.

Need More Power!

Hey all, I just bought a 98 Tj with 115k, has a pretty new Jasper motor in it, (less than 30k), Its my first jeep and i drive a good 80+ miles a day to & from work. Shes a 4cyl with a 5 speed. I love this Jeep but is there any way to bump up the hp? Its lifted 0n 33's, has working ac, ( a MUST in S Texas). It came with a folder with tons of receipts on maint., motor, lift, bumpers, instructions, etc. It was well documented but cant find anything on its gearing. Has a cold air intake but thats about all i can see. Im familiar with throttle body spacer & other stuff but i need to hear from you veteran Jeep owners. Thanks for your time in advance guys & gals
