Got me an ax -15 mated to my spare 242 in the shop My only beef is going to be the check engine light but I might have a way around that.

There is a reason sports cars do not run i6s, just like there is a reason the diesel truck world has switched to i6s instead of the 70s and 80s when they all had screaming v8 diesels that sounded amazing but fell on their face with heavy loads. The Duramax I would say is the best of both worlds, but even it spins 3500 on the top, but makes so much torque it still makes huge power at those speeds.

Got it stuck. It's still stuck. It's so stuck I could call insurance and say it was stolen and no one would ever know. It's so stuck I don't know anyone with a capable enough 4x4 to even to to where I got stuck to winch or yank me out.

When you fix one problem, start it up, and there's a new problem.

When you get excited and just spend a bunch of money on mods, and then something else requires your immediate attention and you've got no money left to fix it.

When you prioritize a lift and tires before a transmission.

Could be worse you could have a "certain model jeep" that sets itself on fire or engine grenades at the sight of a puddle.

Every Nissan Skyline GT-R, Toyota Supra, early Z cars, and so on. The real reason is they're long and unwieldy, and screw with center of gravity. I've seen RB26DETTs and 2JZ-GTEs over 1,000hp. But I6s are REALLY long. They always end up fore of the crossmember, no matter how far back you put them. This is okay in a diesel, where you're not cornering fast, but in a sports car, you need a 50/50 weight balance, with as much of your engine mass loading the rear as possible, to keep weight down.

So, when, in the 90s, V6s started to make more power than I6s at the same displacement, Japanese manufacturers started switching over. The 300ZX was the first car to have a Japanese V6. It was half the length of the L28E in the 280ZX, but had .2l more displacement.

Of course, in America, the V8 has always been the engine of choice, but I don't like them.

Anyway, you know you drive a ZJ when even on undersize street tires, it feels natural off road.
