3.7 enough?

I have a 06 gc with the 3.7L. It's been a year since I got it and was wanted to start putting money in it ie 4in lift and some bigger tires and body armor. Is it worth it with the 3.7?

It's an underpowered motor so you should definitly do some performance additions to help to better move the bigger tires

I had one. No power. If you do up the tire size, get the diffs from a V8 with 3.73 gears instead of 3.07. That will help a bunch.

When you say get the diffs what do you mean?

And they are right power came first for me even if they were small mods made a bigger difference

Re: 3.7 enough?

Easiest/cheapest would be a complete rear axle assembly and a front diff assembly. Bolt em in with hand tools on your driveway.
