try getting it out of the mud and snow and put it on the road... is it the SRTR (or something like that) with the 6.0 looks pretty sweet.

Sell it and buy a car. Not that you'd want to sell a Jeep though.

WJ's already really fast ..all that low end torque surprised the hell out of me when I did my first WOT from a red light .. I mean for what it weighs, and what it is, you couldn't ask for more ...


but look into a nice full exhaust, cold air intake, etc.
