Is it a race? Seriously, I raced sportbikes and am selling a motorcycle now. Makes me keep reassessing what exactly am I doing with my bronco 80% of the time...hmmmRemember,the 4-door and 35's with a 2.3 will not be as quick as the ranger 2.3 with 35's,,,,,, more so loaded with people and options. I will say, if you can tune it, it will help. I do agree with you, it will not be a slow dog........ I I was getting a 3-door, the 2.3 would be fine...... the 2.7 in a 2-door, will get it!
But the 4 door with the 2.7, will get up....... no doubt
Oy yeah, I am carting kids somewhere or grabbing curbside order my wife said to pick up. Talking myself into the realization that I no longer have a daily commute and even so, the “extreme” capabilities of this or a Jeep are just not that important to me. Occasional camping/fishing/trails, yep. But my minivan handles that now. Go further, indeed. But how much so and how often is m elephant in the room.
