    I am wondering why my wrangler seems to have a lack of horsepower. I know that my exhaust has disconnected itself from the muffler during a recent offroading trip... I upgraded tire sizes from 32" to 33" but I know that is not a viable reason for loosing top end speed and low end torque.

    Raising your tire size is a viable reason for losing top end speed and low end torque, it doesn't sound like you regeared the diffs so that would make perfect sense. Did you start to notice this when you changed tire size? What are the specs on your Jeep? 4 or 6? 5 speed or auto? what's your diff gearing?

    changing the tire size from 32 to 33 is not going to make that much of a difference that you would need to regear the diffs.

    :rolleyes: More crappy tech advice. No, you are right though, going from a 32 to a 33 isnt going to be that drastic, but running on stock gearing designed to be used with 29's and moving to 33's is :ugh: :ugh2:

    what size tires did your jeep come with? you should also have your cat cheaked out could be clogged, since you exhaust has been disconected
