someone needs to find a rental WK2 and wheel it against a ZJ, both stock. I would be surprised if the WK2 performed any better

I can guarantee the WK2 would do better. Without pulling the swaybar on a ZJ, it doesn't have much more articulation than the WK2, only the WK2 has more power and can do a lot more with a wheel in the air, whereas the ZJ doesn't even have a method to limit wheel slip. And with Quadra-lift, the WK2 has more ground clearance too.

Plus, 2 more inches of rated fording depth. Just saying.

Here's a novel concept for you: technology improves performance.


My ZJ's lifted and it couldn't do that if I tried. I'd just spin opposite tires and get hung up on my front diff.

You need to off road more, I bet your ZJ could do that but not as smoothly as the WK2 trail hawk. I also bet my stock T4R could run that trail.

He's an angel dressed in oilskins; he's a saint in the "Sou'wester,"
He's a pluck as they come, or ever can;
He's a hero born and bred, but it hasn't swelled his head,
For he's just the U.S. Government's hired man.

He's Australian. They don't even sell the WK2 as 2WD there. Only 4WD. They take 4-wheeling seriously.

My ZJ would hang up a differential and lose traction on opposite wheels about halfway up and then I'd be stuck. That brake-lock differential is pretty neat stuff.

The WK2 doesn't have lockers, doesn't have a disconnecting sway bar, and doesn't have a locking t-case. The ZJ does have a locking t-case, so use it to your advantage. Unless you have a V8. Then it sucks for you.

96+ 249s do lock in 4lo (and even an early one still has a very strong limited slip). Some ZJs have rear limited slips. Plus, it's not very hard to disconnect the swaybar, even without discos. You'd be surprised how well a ZJ could get up that. I was certainly impressed by some of the things mine got through the first time I wheeled it.

Have you actually raced someone at a light? How do you always win? Are you sure you have a zj? If so is it on a bottle? You can come race the STIs and civics and camaros that race here after 11. There's also a badass eclipse gtx here that will blow your doors off. Unno how they race lights in Iowa but I think a lot of people are ****ty at it or not actually racing because I ticket isn't worth racing a brick on wheels
