From what I've seen, the power output from a turbo L6 that was properly built and tuned will still make less power than a built 318, let alone a built 360. That's without forced induction.

Not true, 5.9's got a 1" taller Overland lift suspension

Nope. Orvises got the upcountry package standard, but the upcountry springs were actually not available on 5.9s. You could option tow hooks and skids, but not the taller springs.

That's right, Upcountry, not Overland. But MTBlue came to my house with his niner yesterday ... it's taller and both ZJ's are stock.

It might have had upcountry springs put on it after the fact. I can confirm that my niner didn't come with them (no hooks/skids either), nor my parts niner (which had tow hooks and skids), nor any other I know of, even those with the hooks and skids.

It was a pretty obvious difference, mine looks like "Moms" and his niner looked like "Dads". His is also an unlimited, would that change anything?
Anyway, if YOU were manufacturing 3 levels of production, wouldn't you reinforce the strongest model more than the weakest model?

Well Great if your gonna do all that you better beef up the suspension points anyway just like anything else you'd put that kind of blown power in front of or youll rip something off...been there done that...when u start going EXTREME you start breaking STOCK parts no matter what it was stock...

Well, the suspension on the 5.9 is the same as the 5.2, but a 4.0 definitely has different springs with different spring rates.

Not true. A stock 4.0l with a turbo at 10lbs of boost is dyno proven to make 400hp and over 450ft/lbs, let alone a purpose built 4.0l for boost. This is a built turbo 4.0l, please, please show me any magnum v8 come close to this

...when you're driving down I-17 and the front drive shaft FALLS OFF onto the highway and your transfer case is ripped to shreds.

I love my jeep, but this is stupid.

With the right money you could probably double that in a v8
