jeepwayoflife As a comparison, the 2.5L engine does have about the same HP as a prius but less torque, also the prius weighs about 100 pounds less and has much, much better aerodynamics. Start adding bigger tires and armor/bumpers without regearing and you are looking at some big power loses from the jeep. 4LO you should be fine

Jerry Bransford Are you climbing those steep offroad trails in 4Hi or 4Lo? If it is bogging in 1st gear and 4Hi, shift into 4Lo.

JakeBreen On highway it looses speed on hills of course... but on off-road in first geat it bogs down climbing in 1st gear. I run 31's.

Jerry Bransford It bogs down when climbing a steep offroad trail? Or is this happening on the street? If the latter, what size tires are you running & do you downshift to a lower gear when it starts bogging?

My 4-banger starts to bog down when climbing in 2wd. Is this normal just 'cause of the 4-cyl?
