    I never saw a Renegade off roading. Awesome! Glad you're having fun with it

    I went with 4.88s in my CJ because, at the time, I had a Saturn OD set up which brought my gearing down to 3.6? or something. I thought it was perfect for 33s. Then the OD done blowed up on me. 4.88s are fun on local roads. I keep it off Rt1 and I95 though.

    I'm not sure what's available for them but is there an OD available or an extra low range tcase modification available?

    3.73 is a great gear range all around. I ran that for a long time on my CJ and had no trouble at highway speeds with 33s. If you aren't running up and down the highway a lot you might consider going lower. I'm not familiar with where the 3.6 L power band is. Does it have low end torque line the in line 6 or does the torque come on at a higher rpm?

    Selling my truck. Many of you are familiar with it. Single owner.

    • 5.2L V8 with 195000 miles. Oil and filter changed every 3000 miles. Needs a water pump. Motor runs strong and have always loved it's torque!
    • Radiator was replaced about 2 or 3 years ago.
    • Front brakes recently done but does need a passenger side rotor
    • New dash top (old one was cracked as they all do)
    • New fuel pump within the last year
    • Transmission has started to slip but I believe it's linkage related.
    • 3.54 gear with limited slip. She hooks up pretty good
    • New rear shocks on the back

    Not coating anything, it's dented, has the typical rust, and looks rough. I'm one of few people in the world that actually use a truck as a truck.

    john the mj in the pic would have the renix fi system.

    Initially it said a YJ 4.0L motor which is why I questioned whether or not it was EFI.

    I figured it would have been a Renix motor regardless though. Never knew what it was about those motors that made people shy away from them.

    Trying to think of everything that happens when the engine warms up. If the intake had a crack in it or there was a bad gasket, would the motor heating up make that crack expand (opening it up) or expand (pushing either side of the crack together tighter)?

    '89 YJ is not fuel injected (I think) and I don't believe that was a good motor (Renix motor). Find out more about the motor and what transmission is behind it.

    Idle issue is probably just be a leaking vacuum hose. Since it happens when as it warms up I would look at the vacuum actuated temp control sensor which is probably screwed into the side of the block on the driver side.

    You might be able to determine if the gears have been done by driving it; if it seems sluggish from a stop or shifts at odd speeds then it probably hasn't been re-geared.
