Every one these days seems to have mustangs, and why would you even want a V6 Auto at least get a V8 5 speed.

Im currenty planing my super charged V8/5 speed swap for my Mustang build for this summer, the V6 is horrible and I have an auto. But I bought it for 700 bucks, so I have a good base to do with it what I want. hopefully by mid summer I will have it out on the strip or track breaking it in.

In regards to this thread, you will smoke him unless you cant drive a auto.

Hey pal, why don't you do a little research before you go blindly bashing somebody? If you could pull your head out of your *** long to do the math, you would CLEARLY see that:

Assuming the average text book is 2-3 lbs..

400 lbs / 2.5 = 160

So you see, he could have easily had 160 books in his car.

Grow up you nincompoop.

ive got 33's and i dont even need 1st gear. the 2 years ive owned my jeep ive barely ever used first cept for wheeling and emberassing at stoplights. its to short to fast

oh ya i broke a rear u joint going into 3rd at 4700 rpms that was fun course i had 400 pounds of books in the back and actually got traction
You would not and could not keep up with a (real) cobra, and you could NOT lift a tire with anything even close to a stock drive train.

Tire size numerically effects your final drive ratio. 4.56 gears are usually chosen for 33" tires because it puts your final drive ratio pretty close to stock. This means your gears have mostly compensated for the power loss that comes with putting on bigger tires... mostly. This doesn't take into account weight, rolling resistance, and how many fewer RPM's your tires will do @ X speed because of the increased size.

So: (I'm quoting torque here because HP is pretty much irrelevant to my point)
The first SVT Cobra made something like 320ft lbs of torque
96-98 and 99-01 were also somewhere above 300ft lbs
03-04 made something like 390 ft lbs
---------------------------------------------------------------
Your 88 made 220ft lbs at the flywheel when new... 22 years ago.

How many of these can lift a tire stock or even close to stock? None.
How many of these can spin their tires through 4th? Certainly not your Jeep...
How many of these 'stangs can your Jeep keep up with? None. (assuming the driver is somewhat close to maybe considering themselves to be almost competent behind the wheel.)

UNLESS you have some crazy mods you haven't shared with us

And just thinking about all the weird possibilities here: (necessary power mods aside)
Lets say you had some super slick, hard compound tires and actually could spin through to fourth, how would these have enough traction to lift your Jeep?

Ever notice how all those hardcore 1/4 mile guys seem to run big, soft slicks in the rear? You know the ones who actually do lift the front end off the line? They wouldn't if they had normal street tires, but I'm sure they could spin their tires through as many gears as they had. There is a trade off there with traction, you can't really get both.

DISCLAIMER: All the info above is quite possibly a load of crap and is probably going to get picked apart by someone who actually knows what they're talking about.

This thread is funny. What's your Porche run in the 1/4? Not all mustang guys are tools, and not all 4.6L AUTO mustangs are slow. I have a 98 GT Auto Vert. Stock it ran a 15.3. Still NA, not the fastest out there but I'll beat up on a lot of cars out there. Beat a new 5.0 (it was stock, new driver but still beat it). I think it's quick... even stock it would have beat the tail lights out of my 4.0l 97 GC.

Have "slow" Mustang, will race ego inflated Jeep owners...

But seriously, I have "beaten" a few Mustangs with my Cherokee. They were V6 models, stock. I had more fun picking on Honduhs back when I thought it was a hotrod.

Two things I have learned from this thread. I am a duchebag because I have a Mustang and I should have bought a 4.0l xj instead of a v8 Grand Cherokee because 4.0ls are the fatsest motors in the world and most powerful. I can't seem to get mine to pull the front tire off the ground....

i dont know why some of you feel the need to lie, but you sir, are a godd@mn liar.
