Gas mileage and power

Asked by Mar 01, 2015 at 08:12 PM about the 1986 Jeep Cherokee 2 Dr STD 4WD

Question type: Car Customization

I have a 86 jeep Cherokee 2 door with a 2.5l 4 cyl. I was wondering what gas mileage i
will have and the power I can expect. Plus the same thing if I were to lift it 3 inches and
go from 27's to 29's. Thank you.

Low power output engine is the best way to describe the engine in that rig, the best mileage I have seen was 18 MPG the fella that owned it said he had stripped it down to the bare essentials to get that. If you do what you plan the power and mileage will drop drastically.
