Will it pull??

I have a 1993 yj that we just rebuilt the 4 cylinder motor. Will my Jeep pull 33 inch tires with steel wheels?

I don't have direct experience but I would say no. That is a lot larger tire than stock so your 4 cylinder is going to need a lot of gear to turn them and the standard 4.10 rear axle isn't going to allow you to get past 4th gear unless it is really flat or going down hill.

It'll pull whatever size tire you want to put on it BUT it needs to be regeared correctly.... 31's w stock gears are tolerable.... just put tape over the 5 on your shifter knob.....

Don't waste your time taking it anywhere...

Decide what you want and what you are willing to spend and we'll show you the way....

4 wheel parts (and any other shop) has ONLY one goal and tjat is to seperate as much of your money from you as they can...

Get educated BEFORE going to the shop NOT after.
YAHAHA and Luckymac like this.

To go a step further, from what I have learned, after countless hours of reading, there is nothing you can do to get more power out of your engine. A supercharger or turbocharger might work. Regearing is the only solution for larger than stock tires. If you want more power and bigger tires then an engine swap or different Jeep is in your future.

my 95 YJ, 4 cyl, 5 speed (AX15), 31's, 4.88's, has no problem at highway speeds in 5th gear. (5th gear was pretty much useless before I re-geared). I'd like to try 33's when what I got now wears out. It'd be great if I could try some before I bought them. if everything's linear, they would be 6% taller, which should make the 4.88's act more like 4.56 (4.58 actually). Sounds tolerable, but I'd still like to try 'em first

Have you ever run into a hill on a highway? I have an 03 TJ 4.0L, 6 speed (tranzilla) on 35's wlth 4.88's and I'm not shy about downshifting on the highway.
