prior to 00' tj's had a 3spd auto. mine is factory 3:73's. yes it does seem strage that the cherokee has a 4spd auto but the tj did not. but it is a fact that tj's came with the 32re(rh) tranny. i am guessing at the 4:10's because when i had the stock 30's on here speedo was slow now with 31's its right on same mph as gps now

Do u know how to tell what gear ratio is? Lift the rear of jeep n rotate tire, mark tire then count # of revolutions at drive shaft when u spin tire once. That will tell u how much. If 3 3/4 at driveshaft for 1 tire spin then 3.73. If 4 then 4.10 n so on. The TJ is a 3spd with od.

this is true, while i can and have driven my jeep a good distance to go wheeling... it is nice to be able to just toss it on a trailer and not worry about tire wear, or possibly breaking something a few hundred miles from home

Keep an eye on the spark plugs. My work truck popped them out a couple times. total PITA to fix. The spark plug holes are straight down, kind of under the manifold. Not one of Ford's better ideas.

Should have like a 7K tow rating. It'll pull your jeep fine. As long as you don't get tall or to crazy with the jeep.

All I know about the ford modular motors is get the aftermarket solid piece design spark plugs. If the plugs have been done before usually there's no issue.

Watch the wheels they seem to want to turn while you are driving it. Its a common issue on those.
