This is my only disappointment about buying a ZJ with a 4.0. I wanted one with a 5.2 so it could go in my XJ (which is so much more awesome).

I've really been thinking about doing a turbo 4.0l street XJ. After doing my turbo ZJ, I couldn't imagine how bada$$ a turbo XJ would be. I really think it could be possible to get a stock 4.0l with boost in a lightened up XJ into the 12's

Decided that this summer I'm parting it out and getting a mustang. Trans is slipping in 3rd. Motor is still good. Probably sell the motor and tcase. Maybe the trans if anyone wants a core to rebuild. And then I was talkin to a buddy that has an orvis. He might buy it and make it into a trail rig. So it will still live on as a zj and he will make it better than I ever could.

Not gonna lie that's pretty cool.

I will build another zj in the future. And if I build a motor for a mustang and have an extra I might just put a 5.0 in a zj :-)
