Default 6" Pro Comp lift with 3.7l engine?

I'm a little impulsive and managed to score a really good deal on a 6" procomp crossmember/knuckle lift. I'm just not sure if my little engine can pull around the 35" tires required to make this lift look good.

Does anyone think it is possible? my gearing is 392 I believe. TIA

That's a good question that I'd like to see some feedback on as well even though I'm not thinking that much lift for me but man if it does work, that's gonna be one sweet ST!

Anybody with a 3" spindle lift looking to upgrade to a 6" procomp lift? Maybe we could work something out?

It's all in the gearing really. Any motor can get the job done with the right gearing. I've seen many 4 cylinder toyotas, samurais, rangers, and jeeps running 35-40" tires. You just have to have the right gearing, creative driving style, and be willing accept the small losses here and there, such as less top end, and worse gas mileage.

Maybe this will help if you choose to regear.

Thanks BrandonB,

Any idea how much mileage loss I am looking at?
