That AMC designed 4.0L straight 6 was one of the greatest engines ever built. My brother's first car was the '93 grand cherokee with that engine. The only failure was the fuel pump in the 207K miles before he traded it in. What a great engine, so much torque.Man, that's low mileage for a 2003! Enjoy...the 4.0 will run virtually forever and was definitely more fun to drive than the stupid 3.7/3.8s that took its place in the newer Jeeps.
Thought you moved on. Klingons...ya just can't get rid of em. But seriously, glad you're still around @CamCruzeI am so freakin happy driving the Jeep.
Sort of makes up for 17 mpg...LOL

Every year, usually Super Bowl weekend Best In The Desert off-road racing org comes to town for the Parker 425. There's a couple of classes specifically for Jeeps called "Jeepspeed"
True story, my buddy keeps an old '91 Jeep Cherokee at Parker Airport for his airport grinder. It's got that famous 6-banger that just refuses to die.
Anyway, a few years ago he flew in Friday afternoon for race weekend. He hopped in the Cherokee and headed over to the casino to check out Contingency & Tech Inspection going on in the parking lot.
After a couple beers, he walked back to the Jeep and encountered a group of suspicious dudes hanging around eye-balling his Cherokee (yes his old-beater airport car).
Apprehensively he approached his completely-surrounded Jeep and they asked "Are you the owner?" Turns out it was a 1700 Class Jeepspeed race team. They busted a rear axle while pre-running earlier that day. Race time was literally hours away, no parts within 100's of miles.
With my buddy's consent, they jacked up his Jeep, removed his "good" axle (200,000+ miles on it) and proceeded to install it in their race Jeep. The now-donor Jeep was left on jacks in the parking lot.
Next day, the repaired Jeep successfully completed the Parker 425. After the race, the team pulled the axle, reinstalled it on my buddy's Jeep and bought him a beer.
To this day, that Jeep is still running around trouble-free even with a few hundred race miles on the axle. So now whenever someone mentions his Jeep, my buddy says "Yep, it's been in the Parker 425 (at least part of it anyway)."
@CamCruze thanks for your contributions over the years...wishing you Jeepspeed my friend.
