mxunlimited Going to do compression check in the morning, then as soon as I can find some smaller wheels and tires that I can swap real quick just see if it makes a difference. I keep asking the question because some people say theirs will pull it in od at 70 mph, and everyone that has drove it seems to think it is something other than a re gear issue. Also as Jgreen and obiefox just said theirs seems fine at 65 to 70.

You have your answer already, why keep asking the question? Throw a set of stock size tires and see if that makes a difference at all...

UpTheCreek Mine's a dog too! It came with 285 BFG AT's and can't afford to regear for a while. I'm going to go with smaller tires in the meantime. Maybe 245 duratracs........see how it goes. These LJ's are a good bit heavier and add the hardtop, makes it a pretty heavy barndoor going in any sort of a breeze.

Cencal I really need to re-gear mine as well. With tires and a lift, the 4 banger doesn't cut it!

You are correct. Just double-checked numbers at lunch. Sorry for the misinformation. I would have sworn I was just over 2000 instead of just under.

Point I was trying to make (right or wrong) was with similar setup as OP that I run 65-70 on freeway with no problem so he probably has another issue other than regearing. Again, sorry for the misinformation.

obiefox They are not holding OD at 65mph with 33's and a 4rle unless they are headed downhill with a tail wind. 33's with 4.10 will pull about 1900 RPM at 65 mph with a 4rle .69 OD.

Have you done a compression check on your engine? Anyone local to you have a dyno that you can do a quick pull on?

krisbman My Snap on guy had a car that was really giving him some troubles so he had some sort of hydro wash done, i think it pumps pressurized H2O through the motor. Supposed to really clean it out. Says it worked great, i dont know.

PHILDABEAST When I bought mine it had no power whatsoever, wouldn't run 70 on the highway. So after using this stuff on the industrial engines I work on I decided to try it on the jeep before I did spark plugs, fuel filter etc and it fixed it within the first half a tank and my jeep has run great ever since. It's made by schaeffers and its called neutra. For $7 or $8 its worth a try.
