doclouie Idle oil pressure of 20 psi is good and x2 on the keeping it in 4-lo.

00tjwrangler The rpms are about 500 to 1 grand. And if I'm am really stepping on it the oil pressure is fine and it will go back up. And I will look after work

InfernoGirl Stock TJ's come with a wide range of gears... Depends on how it was ordered from the factory. Crawl under it and look at the tag on the rear axle... the last three #'s are your gears.

00tjwrangler Idk wat gears probly wat comes with a stock tj. And 4low works fine with me I just didnnt know one of my jeeping buddies said put in a manual oil gauge in

Ken Steele 4 hi just isn't geared to handle long steep inclines. You gotta use low range. What is your RPM when the oil pressure drops to 20?

InfernoGirl Regear or put on smaller tires. What gears do you have now? No clue about the oil pressure tho.... :|

HyperBuzzin I'm usually in 4lo the entire time when off-roading. I use 4hi just for on road when the weather gets nasty.

loosing power

Ok I got a 00 tj 4.0. It has 75000 miles. I got it a little bit ago. And it had 31 10.50 15 on it but they sucked in the woods I mean u could sit on down leaves in 4high and spin. So I but 32 11.50 r15 ok they r mudders. I started noticing I was loosing power when I am crawling up a hill in 1rst gear in 4 high but if I had the petdal to the metal it was fine I. Started to notice this half way up a long steap hill when it about stald out on me. But. My oil pressure is going from 60 to below 20 when I'm doing this. If I'm in 4 low I'm perfectly fine. How could I get a little more power. I got a trip coming up and don't want to be the last one because of the power lost.
