Centerforce High Inertia Billet Steel Flywheel

Centerforce announced its new high-inertia steel flywheel for ’05–’06 Jeep Wranglers equipped with the 4.0L L6 engines. Centerforce developed the line of high-inertial flywheels to help the engine maintain RPM in rough and adverse terrain without stalling out while also helping to recover some of the highway fuel economy lost from the addition of large off-road tires. The 39-lb. billet steel flywheel equates to a 47% increase in inertia over the stock flywheel. Centerforce manufactures its CAD/CAM designed SFI-approved flywheels using high-strength billet steel, CNC-machined for a perfect fit and hassle-free, bolt-in performance.
