i love drag raceing off the line with tuners and and ricers cuzthe AWD lets me load up on the brake and gas and when that brake comes off my 5.9 launches like hell, i have taken a 5.0 mustang all the way up untill 75MPH... proably because of my 4:10 gears, gives great low end but less at those higher speeeds.

going a steep uphill with fully loaded trunk. You get to see their facial expressions in slow motion wiith this 2+ ton vehicle. Mr. Green

If I can do this with zj, SRT8 must be out of this world; I just don't like the big wheels on SRT8, I'd put standard all terrain tire and probably take out the skirts.

You know that Swampy and the guys are going to figure out how to re-align that exhaust . Mr. Green And hopefully I will have one. Twisted Evil But that speed has to be in km ? That would not be street legal .Razz

that is one hell of a ZJ, but i would still race him with my 5.9

some day im gona drop in a kick @$$ supercharger and put in a 5 speed manual and do a crazy engine rebuild with awsome cams, pistons, lifters, injectors, headers, and all that other fun stuff. (BTW i know that will cost me like 8K for all that)

like i said, thats gona be far in the future.

yea the srt-8 is pretty sick, it runs 13.2's which is outrageously fast ( I think its the fastest suv ever ) that smokes 99% of cars on the street (evo's sti's etc. ) but its not really a true jeep, where are you gonna put a hitch on it with its center mount exhaust? and take that thing off road and youre guaranteed to fuck up the sleek low front bumper. all things said i'd still love to own one.

No question about that.

Do the srt8s have awd? I've seen a few with 4x4 badges and some without. With all that power it seems like putting the power to 4 wheels instead of 2 woul dmake it a little easier to control.

Four-Wheel-Drive System
To create the first SRT vehicle with full-time four-wheel drive, SRT engineers developed a drive system that was lightweight, yet robust and reliable enough to handle massive amounts of horsepower and torque from the 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8ís powertrain. One part of the equation was to create a new transfer case, combining housing components from two existing units with the upgrades needed to make it SRT-capable.

An all-new fascia on the 2006 Jeepģ Grand Cherokee SRT8 incorporates an aggressive center cutout to accommodate dual 4-inch exhaust tips.SRT engineers opted to use the front half of a Jeep transfer case chosen for its capability and light weight. It was mated to the rear half of a heavier-duty case, chosen for its ruggedness and ability to house the electronic full-time four-wheel drive system components. The transfer case output shaft was upgraded to handle high torque generated by the SRT 6.1-liter HEMI.

The result is the all-new 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8ís unique transfer case, which provides the necessary power-handling capabilities for the Grand Cherokee SRT8 while weighing 60 pounds less than a Jeep heavy-duty case.

Under normal driving conditions, from 5 percent to 10 percent of torque is directed to the front wheels, but as much of the 6.1-liter HEMIís torque as needed can be directed forward when additional traction or stability is required. Remaining torque is sent via a heavy-duty driveshaft designed for the European Jeep Grand Cherokee diesel model, to a Dana 44 rear differential upgraded with a larger ring gear within a new axle housing.

"We wanted the acceleration that only four-wheel-drive can provide," said Knott. "Our goal for the 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 was to have a well-balanced vehicle with a high fun-to-drive quotient. The SRT-developed electronic four-wheel drive system is perfectly suited to this."
