I have the 4 banger and have never had troubles with it. It has plenty of torque to get you through pretty much everything.

They are good enough they drive themselves.

The Jeep is great!

The 4 banger is up to you, is it enough for you?

the 2.5L will last as long as you keep it serviced.

My 4 bangers seems to be ok. Struggles going uphill in a headwind but its all good, I just downshift.

I have the 2.5 in my 88 and its been a great engine so far

I have only driven my Jeep with the 6 cylinder, but have watched the 4 bangers keep up on the trail without any issues.

My 2.5 will go anywhere I want it to go.

great motor, great offroad, mine cruises 75 on highway with the wind behind me, but uphill it struggles a bit. nothing downshifting can compensate for. if i were to buy again id go with the 4.0 but nothing against the 2.5, its a jeep not a corvette

A friend of mine has one. Good motor but can be a little under power at Some points

It is what it is. I drive my son's a lot. No issues with it. The gears are set up nicely so that if you need a little extra umph, going to 4th will do it.

They will go anywhere. You're not going to be winning any races (not that you will with the 6 cyl either), but it'll go wherever you want.

I'm lovin my 95 2.5

denisbaldwin 05-13-2013 06:15 AM

I reluctantly have a 2.5. Offroad, does fine. On-road, even after re-gear, not awesome.

Scott-CJ8 05-13-2013 09:27 AM

I"m loving mine. DD and off-road toy. Took it to Uwharrie this past weekend and even with the rain, she made a very impressive show. I am totally happy with it.
I had a 304 V8 in my Scrambler a while back. Comparatively, they are two different animals, and yes, I'd rather have a V8 :facepalm: haha, but this 4-banger gets twice the mileage on-road and with the 410 gearing, eats up the trails too!
