The 4.0 delivers adequate horsepower from the factory, but many offroad drivers want more horsepower and torque to conquer challenging terrain, which means these engines are often built and modified. The Jeep 4.0, or 242-ci, is affordable, abundant, exceptionally durable, and many consider it one of the best 4×4 off-road engines.
Spring assisted opening and closing is already a feature found on the 2013-2014 Wranglers from the factory; Rugged Ridge’s new retrofit kit brings the same convenience to owners of older Jeeps.
