Second Thoughts
 
Ok...
I'm starting to have second thoughts about 4x4ing my jeep. Reason being, its only a 3.7L so I dont think its gonna have enough power for what i want to do. What i was plannin on was like a baja set up you know the high lift all independent suspension all the engine mods the whole 9. Now cuz of the power n all i dont think it would work out. so now im thinkin about makin it street the whoe drop spindles and srt kits and all but everyone is doin that n i dont wanna just be a follower id rather be original.

So... with that being said what do you guys think???

Lift it and put the SRT kit on it. Nobody has done it on here yet and I think it would look really good!

there arent really that many engine mods for the 3.7, make it a street jeep

oh i forgot to mention, it is 4 wheel drive thats also why im on the fence with what i wanna do. i dont want to waste a good 4 wheel drive, but i figure if i set it up right for street then it could be a great "track jeep"....

add good skid plates.....when wheelin', get a running start. Thats what the Toyota guys do.

are you like me and stuck with Quadratrac 1 and no low gear?

What type of track do you mean? That little 3.7 wont do you any favors trying to throw that 5K lbs of jeep around an autocross................well i guess you could try and put a turbo on it or something.

Lift it! What fun is a 3.7 SRT clone going to be on the street? You bought a 4x4....use it!!!

Lift it...
Have you seen what people do with the anemic 4cyl engines in the TJ and YJ?
The 3.7 has more pep than the 4.0L. Off-road is not about gobs of power. "Track" or "street" kinda is. If you ask me, I'd say a 3.7 is better suited for off-roading. You're not taking anyone off the line in that...so I personally wouldn't go the street route.

I had this same issue. I'd gone off-road with my previous 4.0L TJ and 4.0L XJ. My current one is street...because it can actually get out of it's own way.

You don't want to off-road because it's a 3.7, but you want to make a 3.7 SRT clone?

lol
