Welcome to the forum. Is it a 4.0 or V8?

The displacement in my pants is a little low, so I bought a V8 to make myself feel bigger.

I have owned the I6, and it was a nice motor, but I do like the V8 a lot better. Just a bit harder to work on though.

1995 ZJ 5.2L V8 318. 230,000 miles and still rollin.
