Need zj advice

Well i haven't been on here in a while so to everyone old and new hello.
I recently got myself a new jeep it's a 98 grand cherokee 2wd 4.0 . I have a few questions a buddy of mine is calling me out with his 95 thunder chicken because he said i talk to much trash for someone who owns a jeep and not a real racer and i really want to shut him up. i was wondering what all can be done to really pep the zj up i was thinkin 3.73 gears and a trac lock and maybe a 4.7 stroker. but i really don't have any idea of a parts list i'd need for stroking it . it's an auto and don't really want to swap a 5speed in this one because i just got it rebuilt and it's my daily driver. are there any bolt on items like suprchargers for a 4.0 because i haven't found any? Plus are there any performance chips for this thing. if you guys could steer me in the right direction i'd be very grateful

in a 98 the easiest swap would be to go to a 5.9. build it up and go for it!
remember: there is more to building an engine than throwing a bunch of money and parts into it. it needs to be well planned and thought out of what exactly you are trying to achieveother than beating your buddy at the next stop light.

go to thespeedfreaks.net

plenty of performance info there all geared for Grand's

please dont ever buy a ebay turbo kit. my buddy bought one and has it on a crx that he dragged. it lasted 47 miles till the turbo blew and the fins got sucked through the intercooler. youre best bet is to stroke it, or like said before, drop in a 5.9L.

definitely check out thespeedfreaks.net for some wicked fast ZJs. many of those guys are running 408 strokers and/or blowers.
