It's a special edition. Probably has the lightweight no-front-differential-or-driveshaft-or-transfer-case 4x4 too, that's why it's great on snow.

80% of the 4.0 WJ ads on Craigslist ads say V6. I just drove a coworker to look at a Dodge ram with a Cummins TURBINE diesel

As a mechanic it seriously makes me come unglued when I hear people refer to the 4.0 I-6 as a V-6. Its not a ford!

Oh, and this one time this guy said the new Hemi was a GM engine that Chrysler bought from them for the first couple years. Even after correcting him numerous times he still insisted he was right. That's when in my mind I started imagining me choking him till he passed out.

Sent from inside my 4.0.

Can I watch? Some people just have to be right. I've only every had 4.0L jeeps. So many call it a V6. I just look at them with a dumb look and ask them what kind of engine is that?

There's an 04 Overland advertised locally here with a 5.7L V8 as well. Even though one of there pictures show the engine and it states 4.7L HO.

people can never get their jeep s*** right. i went an test drove an overland back when i bought my current wj. was in real great shape except when we drove it the steering wheel was literally sideways to go straight. figured that cant be right and asked the guy about it.. said it just needed an alignment. took a look under the front and saw no front drive shaft... dont even want to know what that jeeps been through. took one look at the guy and walked off the lot. last time i ever step foot on a wholesale lot again haha (yes i realize my first mistake was going there in the first place!)

Ehhh... While that kind of mistake is extremely obvious and annoying to many of us WJ'ers, we have to remember that many people driving WJ's drive them because they are good, all-around SUVs. Driving a WJ doesn't mean you need to be mechanically inclined (though it is quite helpful to be!). That being said, anyone selling any vehicle, ESPECIALLY a dealer, should at least do enough research to advertise it properly!

When my dad was trading in his 05 WK, the salesman asked him if it had the 4.0L V6. i bust out laughing and the salesman couldnt figure out why

I'd have asked them, when did they start making that kind of an engine, is it a one-off? See what he says. If he just turns around asing another stupid question, tell him he doesn't know what the **** he's talking about.

Interestingly though I saw an old Ford at the wreckers in the summer with an I6 in it. Was a mirror image of the jeeps'.

Ford used a 4.9 though. We had one that I fixed up and drove for a while. I dropped a crate engine in to replace the old worn out one before I scooted around in it. Durable engines. The E4OD behind it was a little iffy though but I think mine wasn't maintained properly.

Edit: Y'ing the exhaust into a 2.5" pipe with a homemade glasspack (yes, homemade) with a turn down before the rear axle made it sound like a non-turbo diesel tractor. I loved it! :-D
