    My 2005 Wrangler TJ is my first jeep. I put a 2.5" lift on it after I got it, just to raise the jeep off the 18" tires a bit. It only has a 4 cylinder, but is great for cruising around. Love going topless and rolling thru the country.

    Just wondering how to get a little more power from the 4 cylinder, when on the highways. Dpes anyone have any suggestions.

    See this thread:
    Four angry squirrels, or the TJ 2.5's and 2.4's

    Short of reducing weight, keeping the tire size smaller, and running the right gear ratio for your setup, your only option for truly more power would be to swap the engine, or slap on a turbo / supercharger.

    I suggest giving that thread a read though.

    Welcome aboard. Re-gear is the only viable option.
