    Nice clean Jeep. With the 3.6L and 3.73 gears you can accessorize it with all the toys and have power to spare.

    Yup went out of my way to find one with the 3.73 gears which it turned out wasn't as common as I hoped. I plan to put 33's on it and while I've read you can put them on the 3.21 it impacts the performance noticeably while the 3.73 should have no issues with 33's.

    Rancho 2” lift? Yokohama geolander 295/70r17 MT tires.
    The unlimited i purchased has a 2 inch rancho lift with 1-1/2 in wheel spacers and the 33 inch tires rub the fenders slightly when articulating fully. But that will soon be remedied with some flat style fenders. And i have to say that the Yokohama geolander MT tires ride great and really quiet for a MT.

    Im here to tell you that the 3.6 motor and 3.21 gears can run that Jeep fine with ALL of the accessories and 37's. I drive mine every day with ease.
