BecauseRaceJeep

I recently sold this niner to buy another (faster) one... Always wanted a fast Mopar muscle car, but I'm broke and after breaking my leg, I can't stand sitting in small, cramped sports cars. I was looking back through a bunch of old pictures and planning the next racejeep, and decided to post some up here.

This niner never made it to the strip. Data logger says 15.50 at 92.3 mph. 0-60 in 6.5. Launching in 2wd was a pain.

The new niner will be much much faster. It's 100% stock right now, but after I get some "before" times at the first test and tune this year in shooting for 13's NA with spray.

Years ago, a friend of mine put either a 75 or 100 shot to his basically stock 5.9 Cherokee and was running 13.8's. I have some video somewhere (might be on youtube). I'll see if I can find it.

There are a couple guys running 10's with these niners, and a lot more in the 11's and 12's. I'll be happy with a mid-low 13 second Jeep. Just fast enough to embarrass the high school kids with Fox bodies.

I don't doubt it. We were surprised how it responded with just a little shot in basic stock form. He did that to see if he could beat my stock 2000 Lightning I had at the time

I would regear like 4.56 front and rear, stiffen up the t case and launch on all 4's.

IIRC, he got some 13.8x's out of the Jeep. I ran some 13.6x's and was pretty consistent 13.7x's with the Lightning. In the video he beat me as he treed me, but both vehicles overall were about the same. After that, I put a chip and filter on the Lightning and went 13.1x's with it. Never did get a 12 second slip from it.

Yeah. Doesnt take much with those 5.4's. Just needed to let them breath a little and they rewarded you. Makes me miss mine. Had a 5.9 and a Lightning. Had a lot more people wanting to race the lightning. Maybe it was the sonic blue color that drew them in, haha.

Should be taking the new RaceJeep to the track sometime this month if we get a weekend without rain. Last two meets have been rained out. Shooting for like 15.0

Then all the go-fast parts will go on and it'll be the big 12 second target.

Jealous. Love the gunmetal rims on the other niner. What's your budget for this build if you don't mind me askin?
