There's a solution to the lack of power, though it won't compare to the 5.9L but stroking that baby can give it some very nice power.

either one, one involves a drive, the other a plane. So does that mean you will take the offer? I know it's a 4.0 and they are legendary but still there are certain factors from a buying standpoint. A. miles are really high. B. as pretty as she is she is pushing 10years old. The mods are nice but more than likely all your hard work and extra mods don't usually attract the price you want. Trust me I have modded several cars and am prolly in the hole a hundred grand haha. What were you thinking in terms of price? Obviously as a buyer I am trying to get the best deal possible and oh ya don't forget to add the recession into your sale, should be a economy adjustment for price!

You're not concerned with lack of power cause you've never driven a 5.9L (or 4.7HO cause I have to be politically correct and include everyone when talking about high performance engines. I guess I should include the 5.2 and 4.7 as well as the Hemi GC's or they're going to get mad so I'll say 5.7 and 6.1 also so I don' get any angry PM's later. Does that mean we should also include the Dodge Dakota 5.9 even though it can never keep up with my jeep lifted on 33's?)

I considered my jeep to be "clean" when it's dirty and "dirty" when it's clean so where is your point of view coming from? lol I'll prolly go "clean" my wj on sunday at the local mudboggs, then after a hard days work of "clean"ing it I'll see down with my only wj buddy in town and have a brewsky!

Kinda depressing, isn't it? You can load all this money into mods to make this one BA Jeep and still only be able to get the book value of it. There should be an "Off Roaders Book Value" cause I just think that's BS.

:gag: at what ZJones...quit being funny. This is a serious situmaion here! A thinking of selling his wj!

I totally agree. But the way I look at it is, I'm building this jeep for me not someone else. My parents ask me all the time why I put so much money into my jeep "you'll never get that much for it when you sell it." I just tell them if I was building it for someone else I wouldn't be building it.

EXACTLY I agree on all counts, If I did sell it, I could not sell it locally, People tell everybody they built MY creation.... Freeloaders FTL.

No no it's not a Honda because I assume you wanna stick with 4wd correct? We all know the ridgeline sucks so you won't go that direction. This is what you're looking for. Click ----> HERE <----
