The thing I like best about this ZJ is it's huge but still has the body, so you can actually tell it's a Grand.

Great pics of it in action.

Hey it might not actually be that bad. Higher you go the less dense the air is and so there will be less wind resistance. I say his mileage is probably better then stock.

What amazing logic.


He really probably does get gallons/per mile because I bet it hardly sees the street.

Actually, an LS7 would be pretty neat. Don't have to worry about hitting the oil pan and wouldn't ever run dry when you are on a steep hill because of the dry-sump. But, $15,000 for an engine is pretty tough to handle especially with what you have already done.

I know, I just read LS7 and started dreaming about how nice it is.

On another note, I read in Hot Rod Magazine about doing a 5.7 Hemi swap, and I think that they might be a bolt in swap. The bolt pattern for the tranny should be the same as the older as well as the motor mounts. But, I'm not sure.
