My 4.0 picks up pretty well if you do your fluid changes and plugs and routine maintenance! My wj will most definitely slide around a dry corner!!

Ok, did some time checking. Normal acceleration (not granny driving, and not lead footed) 0-60km/h 10sec, -90km 15sec. Give n'er 0-100km/hr 15sec.

Now that being said, I do have a TBS, FIPK as well as I have the kickdown cable adjsusted so I don't have the drop of power between 1st and 2nd, which I think makes the most difference. The extra time it takes to get the powerband back up is pretty noticeable, or at least I've found on mine. Didn't everything on a flat surface, but a bit of an incline not much difference. Huge hill @2800rpm-3000rpm I can easily get it from 80km to over 100km.
The beatings will continue until attitudes improve!
