I am getting ready to purchase a used Jeep and need an automatic. What engine would you recommend, 4cyl or 6cyl? Which would get me the best mileage? Thanks.

Gotta be a 4.0 if its automatic. I have a built Jasper 2.5 with full header & exhaust, cold air intake and the whole 9 with a 5 speed, still under powered. It'll get the job done but i test drove an auto 4 banger. Noooooo thank you. Im happy with my Tj no doubt, but seriously doubt id ever get another 4cyl.

To be honest, they both get around the same mileage. If you plan on doing any major wheeling then I'd look for one with a D44 in the rear.

Thanks for the info, I will definitely use it
Thanks for the information, I went out yesterday and drove a 4 cyl with both and auto and a 5 speed. I don't think the auto with a 4 cyl will work for me. My last 4x4 was a Montero and it was the nicest riding 4x4 I have ever been in. Both of the Jeeps rode better than my 3/4 ton Dodge w/a Cummins but not like the Montero. I started off looking for a convertible and not sure what to buy and since I live on acreage it would only make since that I get a Jeep. When my wife and I were out yesterday driving around in one of the Jeeps with the top off she couldn't stop smiling. I was pretty sure I wanted a 6 cyl but with my test drive and your information I know that is what I will be buying.
