I purchased my tj about 1 year ago. I hav always wanted a jeep. Not knowing much about 4wheeling or jeeps I bought a 97 with a 4-cylinder n no lockers. What are my options 2 get more power and lockers?

Your best bet is to buy a Jeep with a 4.0.

And lockers? Your gonna need to beef up youw d35 or replace it with a d44 or 8.8 before you think about lockers

You could run a cold air intake and possibly upgrade to a larger throttle body for power.

I have ARB front and rear air lockers. There are other kinds. Upgrade to chromoly axle shafts you shouldnt have to worry about your rear end.

Is a Vette engine in a Jeep really necessary?

They actually make a kit for a viper v-10 motor

ELIMINATOR 08-08-2012 12:21 AM

yep!!!! its an (all in one) package. I think its better to have too much than not enough

gavinboomer93 08-08-2012 12:22 AM

How much??

NickDanger 08-08-2012 12:22 AM

Is anything other then a 4.0l really necessary?

I guess there is a certain "my d**k is bigger then yours" factor to it, but I mean really, it's a Jeep. If you have deep pockets dump it into other upgrades.

its better all around, more power, and better fuel mileage with more towing capability

its possible to get 10 to 15 more ponies out of the 4banger but it wont be noticeable. Your best option in my opinion is researching gearing options for the 4 cyc engine
