I've had both, If your not highway driving you will do ok with the 2.5. 4.0 is a better quality engine. The bad header went away in 2000 for sure pehaps 1999. There are now 2 down pipes that join a ways back. (you can retro the new exhast) I never felt bad about owning a 4banger but cringed when ever I saw one while looking for my 2nd Jeep. Stick shift is better on the 2.5. 2.5's suck in a headwind over 50-55.
