I like those Jeeps Too... My uncle had a 1999 Cherokee Sport with the straight 6 and a 5 speed, it was pretty fun in the snow. But unfortunatly when u put those 4L Jeeps on a real Dyno they barely make 100hp with maybe 150 ft lbs of torque

I have so many friends with Cherokees it isn't funny.

They're tough as brass balls, but speed and power was never what they were built for... I dunno why anyone would try and use them for that anyway.

They make great winter warriors. Several of them are trying to convince me to replace my Olds with one.

It was on an episode of either TRUCKS or EXTREME 4X4 on SPIKE TV. They bought a Cherokee to turn into a Rock Crawler and put it on the Dyno and sure enough, makes nothing for HP, makes a little more torque but still low, Jeep combated that by giving em low gearing for a bit of get up and go, and good crawling abilities.
