does my jeep have the hemi??

I've heard my 2005 grand cherokee with the 5.7 limited has the hemi motor but it DOESNT have the hemi emblem nor the hemi engine cover..... I'm assuming it doesnt but decided to bring it up to the pros!! (you guys)

the 4.7L throttle body is towards the back of the engine bay, the Hemi throttle body is towards the front of the Jeep

For '05 WK's...............

Count the # of spark plugs,16 you got the HEMI,8 you got the 4.7.

Mine doesn't say hemi on the back but it has 5.7 on the back and I'm pretty sure the engine cover says hemi on the sides if it says 5.7 it's a hemi

I sure hope you didn't spend extra dough on an emblem. Does it feel like a hemi?!

All kidding aside, throttle body should be front & center when you pop the hood. Take a picture of you engine bay if you really can't figure it out. Count spark plugs as stated above, etc. Should be 16 plugs

Seriously? Is this a joke? Lol I'm playing with you but if you have that ugly looking black airbox right above the radiator, then you have the Hemi. Or if you really want to know everything that your WK came equipped with right off the assembly line at the factory then call or email Chrysler with your VIN # and ask for the build sheet associated with your VIN

Did you just buy this? This is almost as bad as the guy on the mustang forums asking if he had a 5.0 ....

Most of the times too there is an emission sticker that states the engine size in liters... i.e. 5.7, 4.7 etc...
