Jerry Falletta The Overland is a screamer and it does well off-road, too. I had one for several years and had a difficult time deciding whether or not to trade up for a new one. If it had ot been for the Hemi, I would have kept the 2002 Overland.

My old Grand was a 4.slow and I knew that I needed a V8 this time around. Still I was impressed with the 4.7! It is still stock but it has much more than I expected!

leonw I just got a WJ Overland with the 4.7 HO. It's a hot rod! I wanted a V8 for towing my boat up the Pa / WVa hills. I have a 98 ZJ 4.0 with add ons (header, perf. exhaust, stage 2 chip, etc...) but it's no V8. I would have been happy with a 4.7 but I found an Overland and wanted the 3.73's and heck, why pass up the extra ponies?

CunningLinguist I had my V8 yesterday against a cayenne S, smoked him all the way to the next stop light.

Maybe it was unfair as i was supercharged. Must find another turbo to race!

RAAB3485 I "have" my v8 every day that I work. On my way home from work, as I get on the interstate, the on ramp from the exit I work off of, is up hill as aposed to down hill, and with my k+n intake, when i stomp on it I get a wonderful growl all the way up to the interstate. I am always pleased when I get up to 75 mph well before the on ramp ends getting on the interstate going up hill.

I have 2 HDs. I've been doing MB BW for about 15 years, now. I only live about 350 miles away and get down there several times a year.

Myrtle Beach Bike week is pretty fun. it is not great for my business (i am in real estate) but I can actually use a little break. The "memorial day" bike week is the bad one. I was very close to buying a chopper last year and held off. Maybe this year??? Do you have a bike xxx?

Have you had your V-8 today??

Just took the Jeep on a back country road and "opened her up". I haven't donme it in a while and forgot how fun the Jeep is to drive. I really have not used the power of the Jeep with my boring ride to work every day. Now I remeber why I like my Jeep so much. I had on a big smile when I parked the Jeep and got out. With 125K on the engine it still runs AWESOME!
