Re: Jeep 5.7L vs 4.7L

I know racing on different road characteristics definitely changes the outcome somewhat but the inherent variables are virtually the same on road and off road. If you're comparing the WK 4.7 to the WK 5.7, the Hemi will beat your ass! Look as I said anybody who wants to join this fight close enough to Massachusetts (or in) bring it. I'll definitely have this filmed and put all of this **** to rest

Re: Jeep 5.7L vs 4.7L

It makes no financial sense to sink money into building up a 4.7 as you will never recover the costs when you try to sell it. and it will never run like a Hemi. Its cheaper and better just to trade it for a 5.7. Those who love their 4.7, simply do not know what they are missing out on.

Re: Jeep 5.7L vs 4.7L

^^^

If you bought the WK new, it would have been better to get a 4.7L vs the 5.7L since you would have gotten a base WK with the 4.7L vs a limited/overland (later on an upgraded Laredo) with the 5.7L
