light not intentially aimed that way, snapped its mount while wheeling so its wedges between the windshield light bracket and the antenna ive removed them since but it would dangle down the side of the jeep otherwise

I think mine is kind of a sleeper. It is a groccery getter. with a 5.9 360 V-8 Front and Rear Lockers and 4.56 gears
When I say sleeper I mean I have the fastest production suv on the market in 98 plus I get a heck of a lot further down the trail then Most soccer moms jeeps, Heck Wranglers too!

I think the 5.9 was the fastest production SUV until the 6.1L SRT8 came out! The unibodies are just so god damn light! Did you paint the trim, looks really nice.

IMO cherokees, Grands and wagoneers are the ultimate sleepers. I wouldnt say mine is a sleeper because it has a fairly high lift, but in general, people are surprised when the see a built "station wagon" haha. I mean the ratio of stock cherokees to built ones is low. And if you see a wrangler you immediately think off road, not so with the wagons.

There was a SWEET Grand wagoneer in JP that this guy in south america owned, think it had like 33's on the stock wheels, and either a built 360 or some FI V8.

Thanks Guys. The Paint is not factory. The two tone paint is the only thing I did not do to it. aside from the paint it was stock 2 years ago. now its Locked and on 33's , and speaking of the Unibody being light. there is a down side to that, I have had to re weld my rear upper control arm mounts where they ripped off of the unibody. beefed the up a bit but still a unibody.

Mine must be a sleeper, it never wakes up and leaves the garage.

Its kind of a sleeper when it does decide it wants to move.

Here is an under hood shot before everything was finalized:

Factory ratings are 235 HP and 295 ft lbs.

The nice thing about the power is it makes 250 ft lbs of torque right off idle at 1,200 RPM.

Its a huge improvement over the 4.0 even though the peak numbers are not that impressive.
