and I thought ZJ was going this direction...



didn't know it was going for the speed.

Sad Don't mean to digress the thread but I'm going Wrangler 4-door on my next car purchase, although SRT8 is really nice.

i dont mean to hate, but wrangler 4 door is an oxymoron to me. Plus it looks ugly, kinda like the hummer H3 which I hate. I'd rather have the srt-8

Yeah don't take this the wrong way but I think the 4 door is kind of wierd looking. Although after reading an article in 4 wheel drive and sport utility magazine (may 07) A couple of midly modded 4 door rubi's kicked some butt on some pretty crazy trails. So although I'm not a fan of the look they are still pretty capable. I figured that the power train was gonna suck though. But what do I know, if I want a 4 door wrangler I'm just gonna hack the roof off my zj and put a soft top on shock

I'm not real hot on them either, but Eddie's looks pretty sweet.

just an idea do u think you could fit a SRT8 motor into a WJ (2000) grand cherokee. that would be a badass sleeper.

I don't see why not. People swap 5.7 hemi's into TJs. It would just take some special wiring. I think the SRT8 comes with a 5.7 or 6.1L hemi. Might need a new tranny and transfer case. I would imagine new drive shafts. Custom motor mounts too. Take the electronically controled throttel assembly out of a wrecked SRT8 (like most of the other parts) and you would probably be good to go. Thats just this wanna be grease monkey's opinion.

The one thing I like about the hemi's is the multi displacement system. Makes the 5.7L Hemi get better gas milage than my 5.2.
