4.0 pistons. Personally I would not waste time or money building a stroker unless it was the long rod version (4.0 rods not 4.2/258 rods)

Just out of curiosity why? I should be able to get it out to a 4.5 with a good cam and a header I should be in the 250hp range and close to 300 ftp that really should get the zj moving around very well
