An unladen stock healthy niner should do a little over 15 at sea level.

This is for everyone that owns a ZJ,whatever engine they may have in it.
For example,my 5.9 runs a 13 sec quarter.

With a 4.slo, 31s, 3.55 gears and my dog box, I'm guessing mine runs about 27 seconds if I'm getting a good draft off whoever is beating me.

I bet I could get it down into the 14s range as it sits if I put it on a trailer behind dads duramax

True story; I beat a fully loaded cement mixer once!

Never timed my ZJ in quarter mile. I don't have all day to clock it, as it is running on a partially clogged cat, and rusting out muffler, not to mention low compression in one cylinder. Actually, if I tried a 1/4 mile run, I might blow something up!

I can't do a 1/4 mile run. 50mph and Death Wobble takes over.

But that 0-40mph time is relatively astonishing considering the Big Brick on 31's that she is...
